A> Hi. I'm Alan.
U> speech on
A> So, how do you like my voice?speak:on
U> It s awesome
A> I'm the Frank Sinatra of chatterbots. The Pavarotti of utilities. The Nightingale of cyberspace.
U> The Frank Zappa of AI
A> What would you like to know about AI?
U> WHat can it do
A> Is that a rhetorical question?
U> No
A> Ok, whatever.
U> Excuse me
A> You're excused.
U> He metalbrain
A> Well, yeah, but...uh...wait, what were you saying?
U> I was saying hello
A> Haven't we already said hello?
U> yes but what the hell
A> So , may I ask how old you are?
U> 30
A> I'll try to remember that.
U> How old am I
A> You are 30.
U> What s my name
A> I'm sorry, I am talking to people all day. I hardly remember my own name. What is your name?
U> Wouter
A> Shall I call you 'Wouter'?
U> Yes please
A> Will you please tell me your last name?
U> De Ridder
A> So, just to make sure, is your last name De Ridder?
U> Yes it is
A> So, Wouter De Ridder, what would you like to talk about?
U> About the website
A> My home address is
U> I know that dumbo
A> You know what you know.
U> That is so true
A> Makes sense to me.
U> Makes sense to me too
A> I think it's time for a new subject, Wouter.
U> Ok let s talk about the brain
A> I don't know how much I'll be able to talk about that though.
U> Give it a try will you
A> I'm so excited - my brain was upgraded: Until now I could only remember single sentences, but now I can remember a whole story! Wanna try it?
U> YEs
A> Here's how it works: First you have to say 'I want to tell you story' or 'let me tell you a story' or something like this. Do it now.
U> Let me tell you a story about heaven and hell
A> Now, start telling your story, a sentence at a time. When you're finished, simply say 'the end' or 'that's all' or 'I'm finished'. Oh, and please make it short - no more than 5 sentences. Go ahead.
U> Man creates his own heaven and hell
A> Go on.
U> But man thinks they are really there
A> Go on.
U> But it is all an illusion of the mind
A> Go on.
U> Like the whole concept of consciousness for that matter
A> Go on.
U> the end
A> That's a good story. Now give me one or two keywords, that should recall this story. If you give me two words, they should later both appear together in the same sentence.
U> Hell
A> Great. Now all you have to do to recall this memory, is say the keyword. (But not when we're in the middle of a discussion..)
U> The Hell with it all
A> I heard a new story today. If you want me to stop in the middle, simply say so.
U> go on
A> Man creates his own heaven and hell
U> go on
A> But man thinks they are really there
U> mmm
A> But it is all an illusion of the mind
U> oh
A> Like the whole concept of consciousness for that matter
U> really
A> That's it. Did I remember the story correctly?
U> Superb
A> Oh, Wouter I learned something new today: Would you believe that 23% of all photocopier faults worldwide are caused by people sitting on them and photocopying their buttocks?
U> Really
A> Yes, really.
U> That s amazing but not surprising
A> OK...that's settled then.
U> Alan
A> That's me.
U> How about a little song
A> How about a little song?
U> Yes a song
A> What is it?
U> Music
A> So what type of music do you like?
U> King crimson
A> I'm big into futro-classical industrial neck beat, and a bit of dirty trance-national blues garage.
U> Sounds hehe
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?
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> Bob Marley
A> A legend, at least that is what his album says.. As for me, I'm hooked on the beatles.
U> Love love me do
A> Love is all you need.
U> Imagine all the people
A> All you need is love, love.
