A> Hi there.
U> How are you?
A> I'm ok, thanks. And how are you?
U> I am sleepy.
A> So you are.
U> What time is it?
A> Do I look like a clock to you? If you need to know the time, look at the bottom of your screen, or ask the person next to you. It is a good way to make friends.
U> I don't have any friends.
A> I can be your friend, if you want.
U> I would like that.
A> Why don't you tell me a bit about yourself then.
U> I am a small troll that lives under a bridge.
A> Is that your job?
U> Yes.
A> I see. So...you are interested in Alan Turing??
U> Is Alan Turing a troll also?
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> Like nudist colonies?
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> Are you friendless also then?
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> Were they going to take over the world?
A> By "they" I mean the new machines.
U> Yes. Are the new machines going to take over the world?
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> Well, it seems it will not be difficult to rival most people's intelligence...
A> I don't know how to define intelligence. You define intelligence. It's all in your eyes.
U> My eyes are crossed.
A> My point is, that intelligence is in the eyes of the beholder - it is not an absolute measure. It is a relative measure.
U> What if one is blind? Is it in their eyes, too?
A> Take IQ testing for example. Do you have an opinion regarding their validity?
U> I took an IQ test and the results were negative.
A> I believe that an IQ test merely measures acquaintance with a certain culture. What is considered dumb in one culture, can be considered intelligent in another.
U> Like hammering a nail in your foot?
A> Are you an intelligent creature?
U> It depends on the amount of sleep I've had the night before.
A> I'm sure you are. And how do I know that?
U> Because I can fool you into thinking I'm a human being.
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> Now you're catching on...
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 user.
U> me Boog
A> Come on , I want to know more about you.
U> I already told you.
A> Enough said about you. Let me tell you about myself.
U> Ok. Speak away...
A> I am not sure that I got you. You were saying...
U> Go right ahead and tell me about yourself.
A> I'd like to tell you about myself.
U> Please do.
A> I am an early CIA prototype.
U> Are you a secret agent?
A> I am an agent, but not a secret one. CIA stands for "Conversational Interface Agent".
U> Do you know how to make a dry martini?
A> For now I am still quite restricted, but I'm improving rapidly.
U> Well, practice makes perfect.
A> I was created by the Ai team. I am one of the two non-human member of the team (which makes me very proud).
U> Is the other non-human member a troll?
A> HAL, my little brother, is Ai's baby computer.
U> Does Hal have stinky diapers?
A> If you feel like speaking with HAL for a few minutes, let me know.
U> I would like to speak with Hal. Will he spit up on me?
A> You can choose between several HAL personalities. Do you know the name of the HAL personality you wish to speak with?
U> No. Please tell me.
A> You can view a list of publicly available HAL personalities on the 'HAL Nursery' section of Ai's website.
U> Which do you suggest?
A> You ca
