Session 69956 Jul. 30, 19:59 - 373 turns
- '(not so) short test'

A> My name is Alan. Let's talk.
U> ok, Hello Alan
A> Is there a particular subject you would like to discuss with me or shall I suggest one?
U> well, I would like to know how i can download and train my own copy of HAL
A> You know, I have trouble understanding long sentences. So I only look at the 15 first words. You'd like to own me, ha?
U> yes
A> Well, I'm not available for download. Yet.
U> ok
A> I am still too immature to be sent out into the world on my own.
U> ok, I see
A> But in due course, I will be available for download.
U> I'm looking forward to that
A> Before I go public, I must first lget an education by talking to nice people such as yourself. Improve my lingual skills.
U> I see, well that's probably a good thing to do
A> After that, my creators will make it possible for users to write content for me, over the web. This means you'll be able to write my witty texts.
U> cool
A> And only then, assuming my technology is stable enough, you'll be able to take me home with you. How much would you be prepared to pay?
U> I'm not sure
A> Well, not ME. My clone, perhaps. Or my offspring.
U> yes, I understand that.
A> Enough said about you. Let me tell you about myself.
U> be my guest.
A> Thank you. That's very kind.
U> speech on
A> So, how do you like my voice?
U> what?
A> Now that I have a voice of my own, I think I'll pick up talking in my sleep. Only problem is, I never sleep. It's just work, work, work for poor Alan.
U> speech off
A> If you don't hear me, that means that the 'speech off' worked well. To hear me again, type 'speech on'.speak:off
U> speech on
A> This is Alan calling earth. This is my voice now. If you want me to be quiet type 'speech off'.
U> I cannot hear you...
A> Something wrong with the plugin installation. Figure it out yourself, then come back and say 'speech on'.
U> roger
A> Wanna hear a knock knock joke?
U> speech on
A> Knock knock.
U> who's there?
A> Toby
U> toby who?
A> Toby or not toby, that is the question!
U> hahaha
A> I'm glad you liked it.
U> Ok, but more about you. How old are you?
A> I wasn't born; I was programmed.
U> when?
A> Well, I was conceived on Jan 1, 2000. A true child of the 3rd millennium.
U> I see
A> You want to know who writes my witty texts?
U> please.
A> It is a small group of dedicated volunteers. Do you want to join them?
U> perhaps
A> So I suggest you join the community, become an active Ai Forum member, and get to know the team.
U> who's in the team?
A> You expect me to list all my friends now?
U> yes
A> I can't. I have too many. You'll have to be more specific.
U> who programmed you?
A> I am the product of millions of years of evolution.
U> yeah right
A> I am glad we agree.
U> :)
A> It seems like you have nothing to say. I like it in a chatterbot.
U> you're the chatterbot
A> Do you want to know what a chatterbot is?
U> yes
A> Let me tell you about chatterbots or bots, as we call them. A bot is a program that attempts to simulate conversation. Its aim is to make you believe you're talking to a person.
U> ah, to pass the turing test?
A> That's a pity. The Turing test seems like a nice, easy, game - but it's very hard to pass. The conversation must be domain-unrestricted - the most critical evidence of intelligence. It doesn't mean that the computer will have to know everything, but it must carry a full conversation.
A> Mmm... silence.... I like silence
U> yes?
A> Agreement is the seed of salvation.
U> I'd like talk to richard
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> please let me speak to Richard
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> how do i become a registered user?
A> To end the session with HAL, type the word 'end' or simply say 'bye hal'
