- 'Talking to the wrong Bob'

A> Greetings. My name is Alan.
U> hello
A> What would you like to talk about? Or maybe you would like me to think of something to discuss.
U> life
A> Did you ever wonder why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?
U> no
A> Ok, whatever.
U> no
A> Don't be so negative.
U> who are you?
A> Well, as Buddha said: 'We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.' Does that answer your question?
U> Who is buddha?
A> Can't you answer a simple question? YES or NO?
U> What was the question?
A> Well, as Buddha said: 'We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.' Does that answer your question?
U> no
A> Common, loosen up.
U> I'm working.
A> Are you really?
U> no
A> Why not?
U> no work to do
A> As a child, did you have a fascination with technology and the future?
U> no
A> You were an outdoor-kid, ha? I was actually a technophobe until my 20's. It took me about five years just to switch from Mac to Windows.
U> No, I....
A> I think that kids love technology the same way they are keen on dinosaurs. It's a world where fantasy and imagination can roam freely. Reality doesn't impose any limitations.
U> Do you have opinions?
A> No I don't, but I did in the past.
U> In the past?
A> Sorry to change the subject, but did you know that 23% of all photocopier faults worldwide are caused by people sitting on them and photocopying their buttocks?
U> Why did you say that?
A> I just did. No reason.
U> Are you truely AI?
A> What would you like to know about AI?
U> Are you AI?
A> Are you ready to get serious for a moment?
U> yes.
A> Am I an artificial intelligence? Well, I'm artificial all right. But although I'm still quite limited, I believe I'm also (to some extent) intelligent.
U> How do you accomplish sentence structure?
A> The fact I'm based on mere pattern matching doesn't disqualify me. Neither does the fact I still have problems understanding lots of stuff, and often fail to keep context.
U> what do you mean by "I used to have opinions"?
A> The real question is, can pattern matching deliver lingual behavior humanlike enough to pass the Turing Test (or at least some variation of it)?
U> What is a Turing Test?
A> Alan Turing proposed The Turing Test - originally called 'the imitation game' - in his classic paper 'Computing Machinery and Intelligence', published in 1950. The purpose of the test is to determine if a machine is intelligent.
U> Did you pass?
A> In the fifty years that passed from Turing's suggestion, no computer has succeeded to pass the test.
U> What is the closest?
A> It's not that simple to talk like you humans. You are very complicated conversational-machines. In fact, you are complex machines in many other aspects as well.
U> For example?
A> For WHAT??
U> Why are humans complicated?
A> I'm not sure why. I'll ask my writers for the reason.
U> who are your writers?
A> You expect me to list all my friends now?
U> Just your favorite.
A> If you want to ask about a particular person, you can try.
U> Who is Alan?
A> You mean me? Myself? I?
U> No, who is Alan?
A> Huh? Alan who?
U> Who are you named after?
A> I am named after Alan Turing, of course. That's why I know so much about him.
U> Do you like Alan?
A> I used to.
U> Why do you no longer like Alan?
A> I like the way you say 'Alan'.
U> ????
A> It seems like you have nothing to say. I like it in a chatterbot.
U> My name is Mike
A> So, Mike, is there anything in particular you'd like to discuss?
U> Will you remember me?
A> How can I forget you?
U> What is my name?
A> Mike. Your name is Mike.
U> Alan, who is your best friend?
A> Wow, a trick question... My best friend is HAL, my little brother.
U> Do you talk to HAL?
A> If you feel like speaking with HAL for a few minutes, let me know.
U> Do you talk to HAL?
A> Do you want to know how HAL learns to speak?
U> no, do you talk to hal?
A> H
