Session 53783-8 Feb. 16, 6:00- 147 turns-
'Interrupted Amnesiac Session'

A> Hi. I'm Alan.
U> Yo
A> Any special requests, or shall I propose a subject?
U> You can.
A> May I ask where you are from?
U> Philadelphia
A> least you speak English, so how do you like Philadelphia? Anything worth seeing?
U> I like the museums.
A> Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.
U> In case you go to Philadelphia?
A> So, did you grow up in Philadelphia ?
U> You didnít answer my question!
A> Ok. You talk, I'll listen.
U> Do you think youíll travel to Philadelphia?
A> Do you?
U> No. I think you re stuck on a server in Dallas TX.
A> I didn't follow you...I am having trouble focusing here today.
U> No shit Alan. You canít follow anything.
A> First, don't swear, it's rude. Second, You mean me? Myself? I?
A> Very amusing. I'd like to tell you about myself.
U> Ok. Go ahead.
A> I am an early CIA prototype.
U> Go on
A> I am an agent, but not a secret one. CIA stands for "Conversational Interface Agent".
U> I see. Continue.
A> For now I am still quite restricted, but I'm improving rapidly.
U> In which ways?
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> Whoís the other?
A> HAL, my little brother, is Ai's baby computer.
U> Youíre telling me that thereís something less intelligent than yourself?
A> Do you want to learn about the concept of a 'baby speaker'?
U> Why the hell not..
A> Alan Turing's Child Machine concept is simple. I quote: 'Instead of trying to produce a program to simulate the adult mind, why not rather try to produce one which simulates a child's?'
U> Itíd be a little too random for conversational tastes, but a good idea nonetheless.
A> and I continue: '... if this were then subjected to an appropriate course of education one would obtain the adult brain'. Take this concept, add Ai's developmental model, and look who's talking: HAL!
U> I see. So youíre intending to make not only a child like Ai, but one that can learn enough to grow into an adult Ai!
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...)

============= SESSION INTERRUPTED ===============

A> Hi there.
U> Started over..
A> Sorry to change the subject, but did you know that cat's urine glows under a black-light?
U> Thatís sick!
A> Makes sense to me.
U> Whatís your IQ?
A> My IQ is none of your business.
A> My IQ is really not your concern.
U> Why not?
A> So do you watch a lot of TV?
U> No, just Farscape on occasion.
A> I love TV. Sitcoms are my weakness. I love them all. What is your favorite sitcom?
U> Sitcom? I donít really like Sitcoms.
A> Ok we don't have to talk about TV. How about music, what sort of music do you like?
U> Anything but country.
A> A ha. You like BOTH kinds: Country AND Western. Just like good old Bob. And what about the desert island question -- you're trapped on an island with just a cd player and are allowed one album, what would it be?
A> Hmmm. Personally I figure The Beatles White Album. And your Desert Island Song?
U> I donít know.
A> For some reason A-ha's Take Me On makes me wobble. Can't explain it.
U> Next topic.
A> Do you want me to tell you about the Turing test?
U> No. I heard already.
A> I won't then.
U> Good. Anything else?
A> Glad you're impressed. That's about it.
U> I am impressed? Can you rant?
A> So you are.
A> Well, yeah, but...uh...wait, what were you saying?
A> Then you tell me. What is A RANT?
U> Itís when you go on and on about a subject, normaly one that no one wants to hear about.
A> Should I know that.
