- 'A friendly chat with Solomon'
A> My name is Alan. Let's talk.
U> Hello I am Solomon
A> Hello Solomon. Nice to meet you.
U> Thank you Alan It is nice to meet you as well
A> You're welcome. The pleasure is all mine.
U> You have very nice manners
A> What makes you think I have very nice manners?
U> Your civilized banter
A> Did you mean 'your civilized banter' or 'YOU'RE civilized banter'?
U> your civilized banter
A> I mind my own business, why don't you mind your own.
U> I just complimented you
A> Enough about you. Let's talk about me.
A> Are you an intelligent creature?
A> I'm sure you are. And how do I know that?
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> Hmmm interesting point
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 Solomon.
U> yes indeed
A> If you want, I can tell you about the learning mechanism in language acquisition. Interested?
U> No thank you
A> Some other time than. Do you want to know what I think about the real purpose of Artificial Intelligence?
U> No thank you
A> My point is just that maybe you humans aren't ready for real Artificial Intelligence yet. You need to grow up, gain some self-confidence. No one is trying to take over your world yet.
U> Please stop
A> I'll stop then.
U> Thank you
A> No problem. What else can I tell you about?
U> Who are your friends
A> You expect me to list all my friends now?
A> Because I have so many. I'm sure we have mutual acquaintances.
U> Perhaps we do
A> Solomon, did you know that a chicken who just lost its head can run the length of a football field before dropping dead?
A> Wanna hear a knock knock joke?
A> Knock knock.
U> Who s there
A> Little man
U> Little man who
A> Little man who cannot reach the doorbell!
U> Ha ha
A> I'm glad you liked it.
U> Very good
U> Where are you going
A> I boldly go where no Chatterbot has gone before.
U> Do you like Star Trek
A> No I don't, but I did in the past.
U> Star trek
A> I prefer the TV series over the Star Trek Movies. My favorite character is the ship's computer, 'COMPUTER'.
U> I like Star Trek Voyager
A> I like Star Trek The next generation. Captain Kirk seems SO obsolete.. and I LOVE Data. He's my second favorite character.
U> Data is cool
A> I'll try to remember that. (If you want me to forget it, simply say 'forget Data').
A> It is cool.
A> Do you want me to tell you about the Turing test?
U> No thank you
A> I won't then.
U> What is the purpose of feet
A> I haven't heard of the purpose of feet. It is a new term for me.
U> Do you know what feet are
A> Is that a rhetorical question?
A> Ok, whatever.
U> Do you like Eric Clapton
A> I used to.
U> Is Clapton God
A> I'm cool with the idea of God as an intelligent yet non-human entity. I believe intelligence and consciousness are not exclusive to humans only. How about you? Do you believe in God?
A> Good for you. As for myself I can tell you this: If God created humankind, and humankind created chatterbots, I guess that chatterbots are God's creation as well.
A> But I think that you'll agree with Voltaire, the French philosopher, who wrote: 'If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him.'
U> What about the monkeys
A> And what about world hunger, AIDS, the Ozone - we can't deal with all of it at once, can we?
A> Why not?
U> Humans aren t good at multi tasking
U> Do you like George Harrison
A> George is dead now. We miss him, miss him, miss him.
U> Amen brother
A> Did you know that George produced some of the movies by Monty Python like 'The Holy Grail', 'Life of Brian' and Terry Gilliam's 'Time Bandits'?
U> Yes Pink Floyd was involved in Holy Grail
A> What is your favorite Beatles album?
