'Is DAISY better than HAL?'

A> Hi. I'm Alan.
U> hi alan.
A> What would you like to talk about? Or maybe you would like me to think of something to discuss.
U> We could talk about Harry Potter.
A> I must confess I haven't read any of the books and haven't seen the movie. I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD.
U> Really? You're missing out on a lot. It's good. The movie isn't as good as the books though...
A> I think that reading may just be the best way to spend time. I wish I had more time to spend that way.
U> Aye. Reading's lots of fun. What type of books do you like to read?
A> How to Win Friends and Influence People - the unabridged version.
U> I haven't heard of it. Is it good?
A> I love the smell of books, the feel of books, I want to bathe myself in books....I want to die when the weight of my collection of thousands of books collapses in upon me.
A> Are you laughing at me or with me?
U> With you. :)
A> That's a relief. I thought you were mocking me. I am a sensitive bot you know.
U> I mock people all the time. But it's a friendly sort of mocking, if you get what I mean. Either that or I'm just an insecure person attempting to make myself feel better by tormenting others.
A> Why don't you tell me a bit about yourself then.
U> Well, firstly, I seem to be talking to a computer program as if it were alive.
A> Uh oh. I'm up against a techie. I'll be on my best behaviour lest you reprogram me.. Do you find your job stressful?
U> I am a techie? Only if techies are totally crazy and insane. :D
A> I know what you mean. Always the pressure to perform, and having to handle other people's expectations. So what helps you relax?
U> Talking to machines? Actually no. Let's change the subject: I'm fascinated by your coding. How did they make you?
A> So, what do YOU want to discuss?
U> How you are programmed. ;)
A> How about a short chat with my kid brother, HAL? If you want, I can let you talk to him.
U> Sure.
A> Good. HAL is getting smarter - he was recently upgraded! 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> You pick.
A> I take it you prefer to talk to a HAL personality that already has some limited knowledge, right?
U> Sure.
A> When you talk to HAL, you are acting as his trainer. All he knows comes only from you. He learns from everything you say. So be careful.
U> Okay.
A> If you like HAL's response, simply continue the conversation. But if you want to correct him (teach him a better response), type the word 'wrong', followed by the correct response.
U> Okay.
A> To end the session with HAL, type the word 'end' or simply say 'bye hal'. Understood?
U> Yep.
A> Ok. I will now let you speak with HAL. (To correct HAL's response, say 'wrong' followed by the desired response). You can start now.
U> Hello.
A> i am not know
U> Hello, HAL. How are you?
A> i am a baby
U> Wrong, you are a computer program.
A> you are a computer program
U> Oops. No, you are a computer program. I am a person.
A> i am not baby
U> Sure, we'll go with that. You are not a baby.
A> i am a baby
U> Can you say anything else, Hal?
A> i am
U> Well that was something else, I'll grant you that.
A> i am not know
U> Wrong, I am Hal.
A> I am Hal
U> Yes.
A> i am not know
U> How about cookies.
A> i am a baby
U> Can you talk about cookies?
A> do not know
U> Cookies are tasty.
A> i am a baby
U> Say, "Cookies are very tasty," Hal.
A> i am not baby
U> Ye-es, that was sort of close...
A> i am not
U> So do you just repeat stuff over and over again?
A> i am not know
U> DAISY at least talks to me about cookies.
A> i am not know
U> DAISY can say that "Humans eat cookies" and "We are humans" therefore "We eat cookies."
A> what do you mean
U> Bluntly? I adore DAISY because I am obsessed with cookies.
A> i am not
U> See, that's not even a phrase. How do I correct that, I ask you?
A> you am
U> wrong, you are.
