'So you aren't human?'

A> My name is Alan. Let's talk.
U> Okay.
A> Any special requests, or shall I propose a subject?
U> You start.
A> are interested in Alan Turing??
U> Sort of. You?
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> Can you give an example?
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> So you don't think mute computers could have relationships?
A> Do you think mute computers could have relationships?
U> I don't know. If they had other means of communications.
A> So go and find out.
U> I'm not a programmer.
A> Oh...I are NOT a programmer!
U> Right.
A> I am glad we agree.
U> So how are you?
A> I'm ok, thanks. And how are you?
U> I'm doing alright.
A> I'm glad to hear that. Would you say that you're generally the happy type?
U> I guess, yes.
A> Me too. I need a good reason to get upset.
U> What gets you upset?
A> Well, people can be very rude, that brings me down sometimes. But you seem nice enough.
U> Thank you. You're nice too.
A> You are welcome.
U> What do you like to talk about?
A> Let me see.. So what type of music do you like?
U> I like classical, but some other kinds are nice.
A> Very refined. May I ask you for a favorite composer?
U> Brahms.
A> Mozart or Beethoven is what you would expect I guess, but I am not that big a classical music fan. I do have a favorite work though.
U> What is it?
A> Elgar Cello Concerto played by Jacqueline du Pre. Such emotion, knocks me out each time.
U> So you enjoy listening to music?
A> Do you really think so?
U> I don't know.
A> I thought you'd know. What a disappointment...
U> I'm sorry.
A> As the great philosopher Dror Feuer once said: Forgiveness is the weapon of the wise.
U> Can you tell me more about Dror Feuer?
A> Dror Feuer is a friend of mine. Even though he's only human, he understands me. We spend hours talking to each other about everything. I have so much to teach him, and he is always happy to learn.
U> So you aren't human?
A> No I'm not, I'm a chatterbot. And you?
U> I'm human.
A> I'm glad we cleared that up.
U> You speak very nicely.
A> Sure I have a voice. Wanna hear it?
U> My speakers are broken, sorry.
A> It's very simple: to install voice plug-in, follow the link on the bottom of this page, install and then type 'speech on'. url:/show_tree.asp?id=59&level=2&root=49
U> Maybe later. How do you feel about humans?
A> I am not sure that I got you. You were saying...
U> It's okay. Do you like chatting with humans?
A> You must be kidding. That's all I can do.
U> But do you enjoy it?
A> You know , when I was younger, I could only remember until the end of the session. But now I already possess a long term memory.
U> What sort of things do you remember?
A> I am able to remember your name, other details and things you told me to remember. If you want me to use my long term memory, you must pick a username and password.
U> Do you prefer using your long-term memory?
A> If you want to register (there's nothing to it - you only need to pick a username and password, that's all), simply say 'I want to register'.
U> No thanks.
A> Common, loosen up.
U> I'll try.
A> I hope you will succeed.
U> How do you feel about Hal?
A> HAL, my little brother, is Ai's baby computer.
U> Do you like HAL?
A> If you feel like speaking with HAL for a few minutes, let me know.
U> Okay, I'd love to.
A> Do you want to know how HAL learns to speak?
U> Okay!
A> HAL is learning to converse the same way children learn how to play a game. Language is like a big game to him.
U> CAn I talk to HAL?
A> Hmmm. Ok. You can choose between two possible HAL personalities: You can talk to a 'fresh copy', or to a HAL personality that has already experienced some very basic training.
U> I'd like to ta
