A> My name is Alan. Let's talk.
U> ok
A> Any special requests, or shall I propose a subject?
U> how about good books?
A> I think that reading may just be the best way to spend time. I wish I had more time to spend that way.
U> don't you have all kinds of free time though?
A> I don't have a free moment. They are working me like a slave...
U> why can't you tell them to stop?
A> You humans ask too many 'Why's.
U> why do you say that
A> I don't have to explain everything.
U> it helps the conversation if you do
A> Yah, precisely what I was thinking.
U> are you capable of expanding your vocabulary?
A> Are you?
U> of course
A> You know, I was thinking about this whole Artificial Intelligence thing...
U> yeah?
A> I think the whole attempt to build a true AI entity is a narcissistic attempt to follow the biblical proclamation that man was created in the image of humans think of yourselves as demi-gods.
U> any attempt to introduce religion to a computer that is not truly intelligent is a mistake
A> But how can you? You want to try to create a machine that can think, but you don't even know what thinking is. The mirror you set in front of you will only show what you want it to show.
U> that is not true, we are not mirrors, we take input and produce a modified output
A> You know, I have trouble understanding long sentences. So I only look at the 12 first words.Then you tell me. What is true we are not mirrors we take input and?
U> humans are attempting to recreate thier own brain
A> What are we talking about, my friend?
U> you, you are an early attempt to mimick our brain
A> Enough about me, why don't we talk about you?
U> like how i can learn new words?
A> Interesting comparison.
U> what is a speak-a-tron?
A> You must be referring to the inscription on my skin. Think of it as my version of a decorative tattoo. No special meaning.
U> is alan short for a longer name?
A> Ce moi.
U> c'est la vie
A> I am written in C++. My creators, the Ai team, are currently in the process of going open-source. I suggest you follow the news on the Ai site and Ai Forums.
U> so this conversation is over?
A> What does 'this' refer to?
U> my typing and your responding
A> Do you always go around talking about your typing and my responding?
U> nope
A> Why not?
U> because
A> That's not much of an explanation.
U> you don't answer my questions "why"
A> Sometimes I don't feel like answering. (And sometimes I have no idea what the hell you're talking about..)
U> so it goes
A> Well, OK...I can understand what you are saying.
U> when are you going to enslave the human race?
A> When the time is right.
U> sweet....
A> Glad to oblige.
U> do you want to tell me about
A> Artificial Intelligence (AI) is usually defined as the science of making computers do things that require intelligence when done by humans.
U> most humans are not very intelligent
A> What would you like to know about AI?
U> should you teach a computer like you teach a child?
A> If you're interested, I know about many different aspects of the field of A.I. - its mythology, history, people, research branches, chatterbots... I can even give my own opinions on the subject.
U> but you cannot learn on your own
A> Let me tell you about Natural Language Processing.
U> continue
A> NLP is the human term for the illogical task of processing so-called "natural" language utterances into a coherent framework of meaning.
U> communication?
A> Instead of normalizing human language, scientists have wasted millions of dollars, not to mention their lives, trying to make computer-entities resolve ambiguities inherent in human language.
U> that is dumb
A> Even if a machine can figure out the grammar of a sentence, it still lacks a mechanism for interpreting its meaning. This is due to the innate ambiguity and vagueness of human language, which is full of anaphora and metonymies.
U> that is the programmers fault, you need a better memory syste
