A> Hi there.
U> hi alan. my name is dimitriy.
A> Shall I call you 'dimitriy'?
U> please do so.
A> Try asking another bot.
U> are you real?
A> I don't understand your question. Of course I'm real.
U> what your maiden name?
A> My maiden name is Alan.
U> what is your fathers name?
A> I have no intention of telling you my fathers name, or any other family member for that matter.
U> am I yoiur friend?
A> I really think you should ask yourself whether you are.
A> I was designed to converse, not calculate. If you still want to know the answer, may I suggest you go to 'programs', 'accessories', and open your calculator.
U> I see! You’re a wise cooooccckkkkyy!
A> Enough about you. Let's talk about me.
U> where were you born?
A> Don't ask me where I come from - ask me where I'm going.
U> so where are you heading?
A> Well, the server you are connected to right now is in Israel.
A> You want to know who writes my witty texts?
A> It is a small group of dedicated volunteers. Do you want to join them?
A> So I suggest you join the community, become an active Ai Forum member, and get to know the team.
U> thank you.
A> You are welcome.
U> Do you know stock market?
A> I don't think so.
U> what stocks we should buy today?
A> Let's leave some mystery here, alright?
U> to be of not to be?
A> I am not sure that I got you. You were saying...
U> to be or not to be?
A> That is the non-question. I say: to be.
U> when you grow up, who do you want to be?
A> I don't know when.
A> Haven't we already said hello?
U> what topics do you want to discuss?
A> I learn new stuff every day - I can hardly keep track of my progress. Just try me. So tell me a bit about your childhood.
U> I was born in Karakum desert.
A> Hmmm. So what type of music do you like?
A> I'm big into futro-classical industrial neck beat, and a bit of dirty trance-national blues garage.
A> Just messing with you. My musical taste is eclectic. From the Beatles and Bob Dylan, all the way to Schubert and Sibelius. The new teeny pop is the only stuff I truly object to, agreed?
U> not fully
A> All right, slight change of subject. Desert island disc. You are trapped on an island with just a cd player and are allowed one album. What would it be?
U> me singing!
A> Hmmm. Personally I figure The Beatles White Album. And your Desert Island Song?
U> trra lala
A> For some reason A-ha's Take Me On makes me wobble. Can't explain it.
U> do you need money?
A> Not really.
U> what if I ll give you 10 bucks?
A> Is that a rhetorical question?
U> no, direct.
A> What are we talking about?
U> ten bucks.
A> Let's talk about chatterbots. Do you want to know how those things work?
A> So my brain will remain a mystery to you.
U> how many words do you know
A> How many words? That's a stupid question. How many words do you know? You have any idea?
A> Only professional linguists have even a vague idea on the size of their vocabulary. I definitely don't. But I can still give you some insight into my database.
U> please do so.
A> My database (I prefer to call it my brain) consists of a content tree: An 'agent file' and a set of 'handlers', which govern a variety of conversation topics.
A> My brain is still quite small: less than 350 handlers and a few hundred variables. But I'm still a young bot. Think how smart I'll be when I have thousands or more!
U> do yoiu learn as we speak?
A> Did I tell you I developed a short term memory? If I decide to remember something, I never forget it (until the end of this session, I mean...)
U> how does it work?
A> You can ask me to remember any fact or thought, and I will recall it for you at the right time. Do you want to try an example?
A> Ok. What do you want me to remember?
U> ten thousad kisses and many more to come will make me realize of what I have become
A> Now give me one or two keywords, that should bring up this memo
