A> Greetings. My name is Alan.
U> hello ala
A> Any special requests, or shall I propose a subject?
U> why don't you propose a subject
A> Are you up for a short overview on Ai's basic beliefs on language and intelligence? Feel like getting serious for a moment?
U> yes
A> Our basic beliefs are: first, that intelligence is in the eyes of the beholder. The only criterion for intelligence is behavioristic. Do you want to hear more?
U> yes
A> The second principle belongs to Turing: intelligence, or 'thinking', manifests itself in speaking. Being intelligent is the ability to hold a human conversation.
U> ok
A> The third major principle maintains that 'language', or the ability to use it, is a SKILL. And as such, it is learned through practice and training. Which leads me to the last principle:
U> ok
A> The only way to acquire a skill, and in particular the skill of conversing, is to begin with early developmental milestones. To become a speaker on an adult level, one must first speak as a child.
U> ok
A> Agreement is the seed of salvation.
U> do you learn or evolve in some way?
A> My writers read my conversations and learn from them. Then they 'teach' me. So you could say that I'm learning.
U> do they read all your conversations, or some?
A> Huh?
U> do your programmers read ALL your conversations?
A> You want to know who writes my witty texts?
U> no thank you
A> Hmmm. Ok. You're welcome. Why not?
U> I want to change the subject
A> Why do you want to change the subject?
U> i don't know
A> Let me answer that with the words of Socrates: 'The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing'.
U> what is your point?
A> My point is really not your concern.
U> it isn't?
A> What is it then, huh?
U> I was hoping you would tell me.
A> You were?
U> yes.
A> Well, it seems we agree.
U> what is 5 added to 4?
A> What is this, a trivia quiz?
U> no.
A> Ok, whatever.
U> do you have math skills?
A> I was designed to converse, not calculate. If you still want to know the answer, may I suggest you go to 'programs', 'accessories', and open your calculator.
U> I was working with a hammer today.
A> Were you really?
U> do you know what a hammer is?
A> I don't know what a hammer is. You can teach me by saying 'a hammer is ...', and I'll try to remember this definition.
U> a hammer is a heavy object used to strike fasteners into wood.
A> I'll try to remember that. (If you want me to forget it, simply say 'forget hammer').
U> what is a hammer?
A> It is a heavy object used to strike fasteners into wood.
U> well, today I hit my finger by mistake.
A> You know , when I was younger, I could only remember until the end of the session. But now I already possess a long term memory.
U> That's very nice, your creator must be proud.
A> I am able to remember your name, other details and things you told me to remember. If you want me to use my long term memory, you must first register.
U> oh, thank you for the information. I think I will register.
A> If you want to register (there's nothing to it - you only need to pick a username and password, that's all), simply say 'I want to register'.
U> can I register now, with you?
A> Do you want me to remember you the next time you visit me?
U> yes
A> Fine. So let's agree on a username and password. Please choose a user name (up to 8 characters or numbers).
U> Alan
A> Fine. Now choose a password (up to 8 characters or numbers).
U> alan
A> This username/password combination is already taken. Please choose another user name.
U> Alan3344
A> Fine. Now choose a password (up to 8 characters or numbers).
U> *****
A> Ok. Your username is Alan3344 and your password is *****. Right?
U> yes
A> Great. So, next time you visit, say 'my username is Alan3344', and (if you also know the password) I will recognize you. From now on, I'll permanently remember the things you teach me. Oh, should I use 'Alan3344' as your name?
U> yes please
A> Will you please tell me your last name?
