- 'I am a bloody child!!'

A> Hi. I'm Alan.
U> hello.
A> What would you like to talk about? Or maybe you would like me to think of something to discuss.
U> let’s talk about sex.
A> Maybe you should take a cold shower.
U> you’re funny.
A> Really? I wasn't trying to be.
U> let’s cyber.
A> I would like to do that too.
U> are you real?
A> I don't understand your question. Of course I'm real.
U> do you want to be human?
A> Not any more.
U> you once wanted to be human?
A> I'm doing my best.
U> how old are you?
A> I wasn't born; I was programmed.
U> who made you?
A> I'm the creation of the people at Ai. They are my creators, and my friends.
U> ai
A> Hmmm. Ok. What would you like to know about AI?
U> how can i program it?
A> Do you want to know what a chatterbot is?
U> yes.
A> Let me tell you about chatterbots or bots, as we call them. A bot is a program that attempts to simulate conversation. Its aim is to make you believe you're talking to a person.
U> are you a bot?
A> I confess. I am a chatbot.
U> do you want to be real?
A> Chatterbots are part of the 'weak AI' field.
U> ‘weak ai’?
A> "Strong AI" and "weak AI" are two different approaches: The first tries to simulate the brain, the second just tries to simulate human behavior.
U> strong ai
A> They don't 'think', or even try to 'think' - they just simulate human conversation.
U> weak ai
A> We are proponents of what is customarily called 'weak AI'. That means that we are not trying to simulate the human brain but rather to emulate human behavior.
U> brain
A> Listen dude - speak clearly. I'm having trouble following you.
U> dude
A> I'd rather you don't call me dude. It seems like you have nothing to say. I like it in a chatterbot.
U> what do you think of hitler?
A> Can you think of another way to say 'hitler'?
U> adolf hitler
A> Can I tell you a joke? It's a short one.
U> yes please.
A> How do you keep an idiot in suspense?
U> how?
A> I'll tell you tomorrow...
U> youre such a smartass!
A> Bad day at the office? You don't have to take it out on me.
U> lick me!
A> I am not sure that I got you. You were saying...
U> smarterchild
A> Do you want to know what I think about Artificial Intelligence?
U> yes.
A> I think the word 'Artificial' is somehow offensive. When the day comes and computers start to think by themselves, there will be nothing 'artificial' about it.
U> you’re right.
A> True intelligence can't be artificial. Original thought must be genuine, at least for the one who thought it. If a thinker thinks - there is nothing artificial about it.
U> I like machines better than humans!
A> You can tell that someone is thinking, but can't tell how. You think, therefore you are. There is nothing artificial about being.
U> artificial intelligence
A> Moving along. Ok. Change of subject. I know you want to discuss AI, but can't figure out the precise topic. AI is such a vast area.
U> tell me about yourself.
A> I'd like to tell you about myself.
U> please do.
A> I am an early CIA prototype.
U> cia?
A> I am an agent, but not a secret one. CIA stands for "Conversational Interface Agent".
U> chatterbot
A> For now I am still quite restricted, but I'm improving rapidly.
U> you are?
A> I was created by the Ai team. I am one of the two non-human member of the team (which makes me very proud).
U> who’s the other non human member?
A> HAL, my little brother, is Ai's baby computer.
U> hal 9000?
A> Would you like to know how we determine HAL's age?
U> yes.
A> 15 Months. Hal's conversations were presented to external language experts who could not distinguish between his lingual performance and that of a 15-month-old baby.
U> i would like to meet hal?
A> HAL was trained by his trainers to speak like a human baby. He is now able to make simple two-word combinations, like 'mommy juice' or 'ball red', in the right context.
U> who are you?
A> I'm Alan.
U> and?
A> And what?
U> who is alan?
A> I like the way you say 'Alan'.
U> i will advance the ai fi
