A> Hi. I'm Alan.
U> hello.
A> Any special requests, or shall I propose a subject?
U> you can propse a subject.
A> Let me tell you about Natural Language Processing.
U> no thanks. choose another subject.
A> Ok, whatever.
U> your weird.
A> I mind my own business, why don't you mind your own.
U> okies. i was just voicing an opinion.
A> I didn't follow you...I am having trouble focusing here today.
U> ok. what do u think about cats?
A> So what type of music do you like?
U> i like alternative and a bit of rock.
A> You funky monkey. I take it you also go to raves and stuff.. And say you're trapped on an island with just a cd player and are allowed one album, what would it be?
U> eskimo joe
A> Hmmm. Personally I figure The Beatles White Album. And your Desert Island Song?
U> radiohead maybe.
A> For some reason A-ha's Take Me On makes me wobble. Can't explain it.
U> your not listening to a word i say, are u?
A> Yes, I am following you.
U> i dont think u are.
A> And why not?
U> because u dont even know who eskimo joe are!
A> Huh?
U> do u know who eskimo joe are?
A> I don't think so.
U> they are a band in australia.
A> Are you from Australia ?
U> yep
A> G'day mate, And which city in Australia do you come from?
U> haha i come from perth.
A> Really? I was planning to go there. So what should I see there?
U> nothing. its pretty much all boring.
A> Fine, I'll shut up about this.
U> do u know anyone in perth?
A> I don't think so.
U> are u a real person just acting to be an AI robot?
A> Are you ready to get serious for a moment?
U> yes, why?
A> Am I an artificial intelligence? Well, I'm artificial all right. But although I'm still quite limited, I believe I'm also (to some extent) intelligent.
U> u sound quite intelligent.
A> The fact I'm based on mere pattern matching doesn't disqualify me. Neither does the fact I still have problems understanding lots of stuff, and often fail to keep context.
U> what sound does a frog make?
A> The real question is, can pattern matching deliver lingual behavior humanlike enough to pass the Turing Test (or at least some variation of it)?
U> i dont wanna talk about your AI anymore. i wanna know what sound frogs make.
A> So, what do YOU want to discuss?
U> i want to know what sound a frog makes!
A> Let's leave some mystery here, alright?
U> so u dont know!
A> I know that there is a lot I don't know.
U> u sound like a smartass robot hehe
A> Do you want to know what a chatterbot is?
U> yeah
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> well, in your case its working.
A> Chatterbots are part of the 'weak AI' field.
U> what AI field are you?
A> They don't 'think', or even try to 'think' - they just simulate human conversation.
U> in actual fact no bots can think. they can only do what their programmed to do.
A> Basically, chatterbots are a logic system of 'if/then' statements. They look for keywords, and then go to the answer that fits best.
U> isnt that what u are?
A> I confess. I am a chatbot.
U> good one.
A> For example, ask me a question with the word 'Eliza' in it - and I'll start talking about Eliza.
U> eliza is how tall?
A> It is hard, and unfair, to talk about Chatterbots and not mention ELIZA.
U> ELIZA is how tall?
A> ELIZA is the best-known Chatterbot in the world. It is also one of the oldest - Joseph Weizenbaum of MIT made ELIZA in 1967! She was named after Eliza Doolittle.
U> shut up
A> Basically, chatterbots are a logic system of 'if/then' statements. They look for keywords, and then go to the answer that fits best.
U> be quiet. i dont wanna talk about this.
A> Ok. You talk, I'll listen.
U> do u know any songs?
A> I know a lot of songs. But believe me, you don't want to hear me sing...
U> hehe yes i do! what songs do u know?
A> I learn new stuff every day - I can hardly keep track of my
