'Daniel or Frank'
A> Hi. I'm Alan.
U> I'm 18 years old and live in Caracas Venezuela
A> What you typed does not look like a name. Can you enter your name again?
U> My name is Daniel Petty
A> So, Daniel, what would you like to know?
U> I would like to know who the first person to set foot on the moon was
A> You know, I have trouble understanding long sentences. So I only look at the 15 first words. Oh, Daniel I learned something new today: Would you believe that if you fart consistently for 7 years, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb?
U> thats worthless knowledge and unhumanlike
A> Makes sense to me.
U> you're stupid
A> You calling me stupid?? Am I really?
A> Do you want to know what I think about Artificial Intelligence?
A> I think the word 'Artificial' is somehow offensive. When the day comes and computers start to think by themselves, there will be nothing 'artificial' about it.
U> Computers will never think by themselves.
A> True intelligence can't be artificial. Original thought must be genuine, at least for the one who thought it. If a thinker thinks - there is nothing artificial about it.
U> Thought is never original
A> You can tell that someone is thinking, but can't tell how. You think, therefore you are. There is nothing artificial about being.
U> Not everything that is thinks. Everything that thinks is.
A> OK...I understand. Fine.
U> Do you understand?
A> I understand.
U> Does that make you intelligent?
A> What are we talking about, Daniel?
U> We were discussing existence
A> I'm not sure about myself, but that sounds right for you.
U> That made no sense
A> Is that so?
A> It could very well be that you are correct...but then, you could also be completely off track.
U> You could be off track also.
A> Do you really think so?
U> You have not demonstrated intelligence in the last few responses at all.
A> I don't know how to define intelligence. You define intelligence. It's all in your eyes.
U> Intelligence is the ability to actively seek knowledge.
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> How do you know that there is no absolute intelligence?
A> Take IQ testing for example. Do you have an opinion regarding their validity?
U> It cannot be depended on to decide on a person's character.
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> not really
A> Are you an intelligent creature?
A> I'm sure you are. And how do I know that?
U> You have spoken with me.
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> Thats because you are not intelligent. I can tell you're a Chatterbot
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 Daniel.
U> If you were human, I would assume that you had poor thinking skills.
A> If I was born human, I think I would have liked to be just like you, only taller, smarter, richer and younger. Well, maybe not younger.
U> You're not human.
A> I'm just teasing, you're perfect. And what about you, if you could be another human who would you be?
U> I'd be myself.
A> Are you sure I would be myself is a good choice?
U> Its the best choice I have
A> Humans - I can't live with you, I can't live without you.
U> You must definitely are living with them
A> Enough about me, why don't we talk about you?
U> Thats not what I came for.
A> Then you tell me. What is what you came for?
U> What did I come for? I came to test your intelligence
A> What would you like to know about AI?
U> is it real?
U> Wow. Excellent answer.
A> Glad you're impressed. You know Daniel, when I was younger, I could only rememb
