- 'An endless talk with Angel



A> Greetings. My name is Alan.
U> Alan
A> That's me.
U> Do you know my name
A> This was a busy day. I can barely remember that my own name is 'Alan'. What is your name?
U> My name is Angel hello
A> Hello Angel. Nice to meet you.
U> Very nice to meet you too
A> The pleasure is all mine.
U> Do you know that us humans can be facinated by you
A> Do I know what?
U> Humans can be facinated by you
A> Oh, Angel I learned something new today: Would you believe that a shrimp's heart is in its head?
U> Really
A> Yes, really.
U> That s cool
A> That's true. What else do you want to know?
U> Can I teach you something
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...)
U> Thank you for telling me
A> You can ask me to remember any fact or thought, and I will recall it for you at the right time. Do you want to try an example?
U> Can I teach you something
A> Ok. What do you want me to remember?
U> Do you speak french
A> Now give me one or two keywords, that should bring up this memory. If you give me two words, they should later both appear together in the same sentence to recall the memory.
U> I don t understand what you mean
A> Bad choice. Please give me another one or two words that should recall this memory.
U> Angel
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> Angel
A> Do me speak french
U> Can I ask you if you speak french
A> I can only say Bonjour. Are you from France ?
U> No I am from Canada I speak french though
A> Well...at least you speak English, And which city in Canada do you come from?
U> Barrie Ontario but my family is from Kapuskasing Ontario
A> Really? I was planning to go there. So what should I see there?
U> In Barrie or Kapuskasing
A> Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.
U> Bonjour Alan
A> So, did you grow up in Kapuskasing Ontario ?
U> No
A> That's very interesting, you know, because I've noticed something about human beings: you move around a lot. Almost as though someone were chasing after you.
U> We want to explore and experience new things
A> Well, for better or for worse, I travel only in my mind. Sometimes to very beautiful places. But enough about that.
U> Can I speak to you in french
A> Why do you want to speak to me in french?
U> Maybe you could learn some new french words
A> Maybe.
U> Would you like to try
A> No thanks.
U> Okay maybe later then
A> Could be, but I doubt it?
U> Why not
A> Are you an intelligent creature?
U> I would like to think so
A> I'm sure you are. And how do I know that?
U> How
A> I know that you are an intelligent creature using only one criterion: your behavior during our conversation. As far as I know, you can be a Chatterbot just like me.
U> What does criterion mean
A> Or I can be human just like you. It can be quite confusing. Let's agree on one thing, using Tarzan's famous quote: me Alan - you Angel.
U> Me Angel You Alan
A> Do me speak french
U> I guess I shouldn t type my name
A> Enough about you. Let's talk about me.
U> okay
A> So...you are interested in Alan Turing??
U> yes
A> Alan Turing had a lot to say about the relationship between computers and humans. What seems very natural for us now, wasn't true 50 years ago, when Turing lived.
U> go on
A> He was the first one to talk about thinking and talking computers - and talking, if you ask me, is the essence of relationships. Not that I've ever had one...
U> yes you have
A> The way I see it, after World War II, Turing felt the power of digital computers. He could feel that they were going to take a big role in our lives.
U> really
A> But Turing also realized the difficulty people would have in accepting a machine to rival their own intelligence, a fear that still haunts artificial intelligence today.
U> go on
A> If you want, I can tell you about the learning mechanism in language acq
