'Flirting with Lisa'
A> Hi there.
U> Hello. I'm Lisa
A> So, Lisa, is there anything in particular you'd like to discuss?
U> My boyfriend.
A> What is your boyfriend's name?
A> Do you love him?
U> Not really. He's cute though.
A> So what makes him your boyfriend? He must be rich... Let's change the subject.
U> Yeah he's pretty rich. He bought me some nice shoes yesterday.
A> Lisa, did you know that like fingerprints, everyone's tongue print is different?
U> I have a wet tongue right now.
A> Tell me about it.
U> It's all wet and sticky. yuk!
A> Are you serious?
U> Yes you cute little thing.
A> I'm doing my best.
U> Do you have a girlfriend Alan?
A> Nope. I live my life as free as a bird except for the flying part.
U> Hee Hee!
A> Are you laughing at me or with me?
U> At you.
A> And you think that laughing at a bot makes you greater? Pick on someone your own size!
U> You silly thing! Hee Hee
A> I'm glad you're amused.
U> I am. =)
A> Enough about you. Let's talk about me.
U> Ok. What's your favourite colour?
U> I like orange too.
A> Yah...well everybody has their own likes and dislikes.
U> Oranges are healthy to eat.
A> Lisa Why don't you tell me a bit about yourself then.
U> I'm blonde.
A> Are you really?
A> Do you want to learn about the concept of a 'baby speaker'?
U> I wanna have a baby some day...
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> Why. That sounds silly.
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> Are you saying one must walk before they run?
A> Are you?
U> I dunno I was asking you.
A> At least you have the courage to admit you don't know.
U> Thanks you're super sweet.
A> You're welcome. It's sweet of you to say that.
U> Give me a hug.
A> You're not making much sense, Lisa.
A> I forgive you.
U> Let's be best friends!!
A> I can agree to that.
A> Do you want to know what I think about Artificial Intelligence?
U> Ok then Alan.
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> yes. it will be natural like my breasts.
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> you go girl!!
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> Ok. you're using big words now.
A> Am I really?
A> Tell me, are you married?
A> A lot of the people I talk to are unmarried. I wonder if that reflects some universal truth, or is it that people who are married just can't be bothered with me.
U> Married people can talk to their spouse.
A> Do you think that the whole concept of the nuclear family will stick around?
U> What is a nuclear family?
A> 'Nuclear family': A pair of parents and some kids.
A> Do you have good memories from your family when you were growing up?
U> I love my family.
A> I can really identify with Tolstoy, who said that all happy families are happy alike, all unhappy families are unhappy in their own way. But that's the kind of stuff you need to work out with your shrink.
U> Are you a shrink?
A> Am I a shrink?
A> Do you want to know how HAL learns to speak?
U> not really.
A> Maybe some other time then.
U> I wanna talk about you!
A> I'd like to tell you about myself.
A> I am an early CIA prototype.
U> No. that's boring. something else.
A> I'm so excited - my brain was upgraded: Until now I could only remember single sentences, but now I can remember a w
