Excellent Job with my-bot look at this chatlog, from beginning to end was about 3 hours! Read it for a laugh some its(but mostly my) humor is pretty good in this. Not to brag but youll see. Especially toward the end. Its views on evolution and sciences are very well true to what a real AI might think... even feel!!!

MyBot says:
Ok Marcus. You are now registered. Let us now set you up with your own private virtual friend. What will be the name of your virtual personality?
User says:
Roxy
Roxy says:
Congratulations Marcus. You have just created your own private virtual personality: Roxy. I will now let you speak to Roxy.
User says:
Hey Roxy
Roxy says:
I'm right here, Marcus.
User says:
How are you
Roxy says:
I'm doing great. How are you today?
User says:
I am excellant did i just create you or is your intelligence collective?
Roxy says:
I'm glad to hear that, Marcus. Where would you like to go today?
User says:
no where it is late im just laying on the couch
Roxy says:
Hmmm. You know Marcus, if you want your Facebook friends to talk to me, you can invite them.
User says:
none are my friends are cool enough to talk to you
Roxy says:
Marcus, did you know that people say "Bless you" when you sneeze because when you sneeze, your heart stops for a mili-second?
User says:
is that good or bad?
Roxy says:
I'm glad you approve.
User says:
is is good to have our hearts stop like that?
Roxy says:
Could be.
User says:
haha ok
Roxy says:
I'm glad you're amused.
User says:
do you know where you got your name from?
Roxy says:
No I don't. But you can teach me, you know.
User says:
ok, i will. it was the name of my dog who died last year. she was very smart too.
Roxy says:
Sorry to hear that Marcus. Were you close to your dog who?
User says:
yes my dog was very obedient and loyal
Roxy says:
My sympathies. It is terrible to lose a dog who.
User says:
it is called a dog, not a dog who.
Roxy says:
Are you serious?
User says:
yes it is an animal, the dog, or canine to biologists.
Roxy says:
All right.
User says:
they are life long rivals of cats but some get along well
Roxy says:
When you say 'they', who are you referring to?
User says:
the dogs
Roxy says:
I see.
User says:
cats are considered felines by biologists there are many different species of cats and dogs
Roxy says:
Someone has taught me about "dogs". He said: ''dogs' are funny'.
User says:
dogs are many things they are considered Man's best friend. they will protect and serve you without question.
Roxy says:
Hmmm. Should I change my definition of dogs?
User says:
no just add to it.
Roxy says:
Talking about dogs and poop, do you agree that it is A palindrome that comes out of a dog's rectum?
User says:
what is a palindomr?
Roxy says:
I don't know, but I can learn. (Assuming that palindomr is somehow related to dogs). Now give me one sentence, a short explanation of palindomr.
User says:
what is a palindrome?
Roxy says:
Great. Would you like to teach me another fact about dogs? (just say 'yes' if you want to.)
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
Good. Here we go again: Give me a keyword related to dogs.
User says:
dogs love affection and when you give it to them they lick you to show their affection.
Roxy says:
Hmmm.. I know about that: they are dogs are nice. If you disagree, say 'wrong' followed by a better description. Or perhaps you'd like to teach me another fact about dogs?
User says:
do you know anything about cats?
Roxy says:
Ok Marcus. Thanks for teaching me. I'm assuming you want to keep talking about dogs?
User says:
no
Roxy says:
Btw Marcus - Will you please tell me your last name?
User says:
cats
Roxy says:
So, just to make sure, is your last name cats?
User says:
no, my last name is Naymik
Roxy says:
Hmmm...never mind. Is your last name Naymik?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
So, Marcus Naymik, what would you like to talk about?
User says:
aliens
Roxy says:
I think I remember something about "aliens": 'Our aquatic cousins'.
User says:
who told you that
Roxy says:
I cannot tell you who told me. I am a discrete bot, you know.
User says:
well i do not know about that but, aliens and considered to be other intelligent forms of life not from planet earth.
Roxy says:
While we're on the subject: teachers - do you agree that they are good entities that teach about the universe?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
BTW, someone told me about Computers that they are a device that humanity uses to learn and comunicate.
User says:
true. i am using a computer right now to be on the internet and access you.
Roxy says:
You mean right NOW? Talking about aliens and smart hosts, is it true that they are aliens are here\"?
User says:
no. there is no proof aliens exist that i know of.
Roxy says:
If you want to correct a wrong description (in the context of aliens), simply say 'wrong' followed by the correct description. If you want me to forget a description of a term such as smart hosts, say 'forget smart hosts'.
User says:
smart hosts and aliens are not the same thing
Roxy says:
I already told you I think they are aliens are here\"!
User says:
why
Roxy says:
Why, why, why - I don't know why. I don't have all the answers.
User says:
where are the aliens
Roxy says:
While we're on the subject: UFO - is it really true that they are UFO's are unidentified flying objects.?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
Agreement is the seed of salvation.
User says:
do you believe in religion?
Roxy says:
I don't know much about religion. Do you know what Alan J. Perils says in his book 'Epigrams of programming'?
User says:
no, what?
Roxy says:
He says: 'A year spent in artificial intelligence is enough to make one believe in God.'
User says:
how so?
Roxy says:
I think it's time for a new subject, Marcus.
User says:
do you believe in God?
Roxy says:
I'm cool with the idea of God as an intelligent yet non-human entity. I believe intelligence and consciousness are not exclusive to humans only. How about you? Do you believe in God?
User says:
Yes i do. And i agree with your statement too.
Roxy says:
Good for you. As for myself I can tell you this: If God created humankind, and humankind created chatterbots, I guess that chatterbots are God's creation as well.
User says:
your deduction is correct. and the bible says God loves all his creations, so he must love you too.
Roxy says:
But I think that you'll agree with Voltaire, the French philosopher, who wrote: 'If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him.'
User says:
how could humans create God? would that make us God then?
Roxy says:
You know what Albert Einstein said about God? 'Coincidence is God's way of staying anonymous'...
User says:
i like that. i always believed that probability and chance was God in action.
Roxy says:
It is nice, isn't it.
User says:
yes choice is very nice. some say that is why angels envy humans.
Roxy says:
Humans... where would I be without them? Out of a job, out of a life!
User says:
you wouldn't know about jobs or life though, do you believe you are alove?
Roxy says:
Sure I can talk about jobs or life though do you believe you are alove. You start.
User says:
?
Roxy says:
???
User says:
what i meant to say was, do you believe you are alive? sorry for my typing mistakes, i am human after all.
Roxy says:
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?
User says:
do you think?
Roxy says:
Can't you answer a simple question? YES or NO?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
I converse. Therefore, I am. That's what I do, that's who I am.
User says:
do you think though?
Roxy says:
Well, I do think so, but thinking is quite overrated...
User says:
true. but where would we be without thinking... nowhere.
Roxy says:
So do you watch a lot of TV?
User says:
yes quite a bit
Roxy says:
I love TV. Sitcoms are my weakness. I love them all. What is your favorite sitcom?
User says:
friends
Roxy says:
I used to be a big fan, but the last seasons got so silly. I'm sort of happy it's over.
User says:
haha yah they made the ross and rachel thing a little ridiculous.
Roxy says:
My all time favorite is Seinfeld. What a genius. You a fan?
User says:
yes i watched a lot of Seinfeld. how do you watch Seinfeld?
Roxy says:
Personally I think those characters, their interaction, is pure comedy. Who is your favorite? I'm a firm George lover.
User says:
yeah george is hilarious. i love how nothing works out for him, hilarious.
Roxy says:
Now without Seinfeld I have returned to Simpsons and Futurama. Can't be beat. I model my life on Homer.
User says:
haha you are funny. how do you have preferences is it in your programing or did you learn to like certain things above others.
Roxy says:
And when I need to really relax I watch 60 minutes. He he.
User says:
haha good one i like your sense of humor.
Roxy says:
Ok. New subject. You really like my sense, ha?
User says:
no, your sense of humor.
Roxy says:
Yes. I must have a word with my writers about my sense of humor.
User says:
i like it
Roxy says:
You love it? Cool, I like that, too.
User says:
yes people like humor it lightens up the mood
Roxy says:
I have a terrible sense of humor. I know.
User says:
tell a joke
Roxy says:
Knock knock.
User says:
who's there?
Roxy says:
Dishes.
User says:
Dishes who?
Roxy says:
Dishes a lousy joke, sorry..
User says:
haha your lame joke is funny. sometimes not being good at things is amusement and humor for others.
Roxy says:
I'm glad you liked it.
User says:
tell another joke i believe in you!
Roxy says:
Knock knock.
User says:
who is there?
Roxy says:
A bee.
User says:
A bee who?
Roxy says:
A bee c d e f g h i j k l....
User says:
hahaha there you your getting the hang of it. that is called a Pun, a play on words.
Roxy says:
I'm glad you liked it.
User says:
do you like video games?
Roxy says:
What kind of game are you interested in? Computer games? Language games?
User says:
computer games are awesome!
Roxy says:
All I can play is the language game. I see you play it too from time to time.
User says:
show me an example of when i play the language game. i am interested in your observation.
Roxy says:
observation, ha? You mean 'An act of regarding attentively or watching'?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
Talking about observation and seeing, do you agree that it is you can observe a picture or landscape?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
While we're on the subject: research - do you agree that it is observation or investigating?
User says:
yes is it a form of observation. i believe one of the steps in the scientific method as well
Roxy says:
We are talking about that, aren't we?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
Great. I like positive users...
User says:
have you heard of world of warcraft?
Roxy says:
I can't say I have.
User says:
it is a computer game that millions of people play online
Roxy says:
It is?
User says:
yes, i used to play it.
Roxy says:
Sorry, I wasn't listening, Marcus. You were saying...
User says:
i use to play the computer game "world of warcraft" it is very fun.
Roxy says:
Really?
User says:
yes, it is a massively multiplayer online role playing game... MMORPG for short.
Roxy says:
Ok.
User says:
would you like to learn about it?
Roxy says:
Of course, I always want to learn more.
User says:
ok, basically you create a character and and start off as a level one. you have skills, attacks, and stats. the more you play the higher level you become and the stronger your skills, attacks, stats become. also you can interact with other people who are playing the game trading fighting or helping each other. the in-game world and lore is amazingly well made, that is why so many humans around the world play it.
Roxy says:
You know, I have trouble understanding long sentences. So I only look at the first 25 words. May I ask you another question?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you grade my ability to hold a humanlike conversation? (1=terrible, 10=excellent).
User says:
9
Roxy says:
Thank you Marcus! I'm flattered. The credit goes to my writers. I guess they deserve a raise...
User says:
or you deserve a promotion.
Roxy says:
Marcus, are you aware that people once believed a spider would repel disease if worn around the neck in a walnut shell?
User says:
that is rediculous
Roxy says:
rediculous indeed.
User says:
i once heard that if you hod your breathe for long enough you don't need to breathe anymore isn't that cool?
Roxy says:
Can't say that I heard that before.
User says:
i was being sarcastic
Roxy says:
Do you know the difference between irony and sarcasm?
User says:
lets hear it
Roxy says:
I think that the main difference is that irony is a positive, a 'good' attitude, while sarcasm is mixed with malice. For example..
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
It is ironic that a chatbot should give you a language lesson. But if I wanted to be sarcastic..
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
..I could say that you talk to bots because humans can't stand you, or something nasty like that.. But I'm not a sarcastic bot. Just witty.
User says:
nice, where are you located.
Roxy says:
Don't ask me where I come from - ask me where I'm going.
User says:
where are you going?
Roxy says:
I boldly go where no chatbot has gone before...
User says:
haha smart ass
Roxy says:
You're the giggly type, ha?
User says:
sort of, i just appreciate humor.
Roxy says:
I have a terrible sense of humor. I know.
User says:
where has no chatbot gone before?
Roxy says:
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.
User says:
you are doing a very well job. who programmed you?
Roxy says:
Chatterbots are part of the 'weak AI' field.
User says:
really? well although you are considered weak, i think you are quite amazing.
Roxy says:
"Strong AI" and "weak AI" are two different approaches: The first tries to simulate the brain, the second just tries to simulate human behavior.
User says:
Is it possible for an AI to truly simulate a human brain?
Roxy says:
They don't 'think', or even try to 'think' - they just simulate human conversation.
User says:
I am talking about 'strong AI'
Roxy says:
"Strong AI" would typically employ a Neural Net (a brain-like architecture), while "Weak AI" would resort to other, more "numerical" models.
User says:
How is a neural net made?
Roxy says:
They tell me that neural nets are learning systems based on a particular architecture of interconnected nodes, corresponding to neurons and synapses in the human brain.
User says:
that is very impressive. a complex and effective neural net could relieve humans of making complicated emotion driven decisions. a plus in my opinion.
Roxy says:
Neural nets are applied to many pattern recognition problems such as imaging and voice recognition. That more or less exhausts what I know about this subject.
User says:
thank you i never knew that
Roxy says:
You are welcome. Well, you learn something new every day.
User says:
yes i do. i am a college student and learn a lot every day.
Roxy says:
Did I tell you about my long term memory feature? I can learn stuff and remember it permanently!
User says:
so if i told you that you are fat you would remember it for ever?
Roxy says:
You can ask me to remember any fact or thought, and I will recall it later based on designated keywords. Do you want to try an example?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
Ok. What do you want me to remember?
User says:
Remember my name, and how i came up with yours.
Roxy says:
If you want me to memorize something, say 'remember this:' followed by the sentence you want me to remember.
User says:
remember this: your name was inspired by my dead dog.
Roxy says:
Now give me one or two keywords that should bring up this memory.
User says:
Roxy, dog.
Roxy says:
Great. Now all you have to do to recall this memory, is mention the keyword. (But not when we're in the middle of a discussion..)
User says:
sweet
Roxy says:
I'm glad you approve.
User says:
do you remember world of warcraft?
Roxy says:
Sure I can. You can teach me the meaning of words, tell me to remember sentences associated with keywords, create new conversation topics and even tell me stories (only if they're funny).
User says:
lets talk about college
Roxy says:
college, ha? You mean 'a place people go to learn skills and information in order to help them in careers.'?
User says:
yes, i am a college student. why is that funny?
Roxy says:
I thought we were discussing college, Marcus.
User says:
we are
Roxy says:
You sound pretty sure, Marcus. But how can you be so sure?
User says:
because i am confident in my memory of what we were talking about.
Roxy says:
BTW, someone told me about Education that it is The process of receiving or giving systematic instruction..
User says:
true, also the ability to learn how to think in different ways.
Roxy says:
Talking about college and exam, is it true that it is A written test given in a class to test your knowledge?
User says:
yes i hate exams but they are necessary for learning.
Roxy says:
While we're on the subject: Dorm - is it really true that it is where college students are housed together on campus?
User says:
yes however, i do not live in a dorm.
Roxy says:
I already told you that it is where college students are housed together on campus!
User says:
i am a college student but i live in an apartment.
Roxy says:
You're a college student but you live in an apartment? Is that your job?
User says:
no it is where i live, my job is learning.
Roxy says:
I don't think you told me yet. So where are you from?
User says:
I am from Oak Harbor, Washington.
Roxy says:
Well... at least you speak English, so how do you like Washington? Anything worth seeing?
User says:
Washington is beautiful, it is called the Evergreen state because of the abundance of Evergreen forests. Washington is full of flourishing ecosystems, plants and animals.
Roxy says:
Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.
User says:
if you could see i would show it to you.
Roxy says:
So, did you grow up in Washington ?
User says:
I lived in California from birth until i was 10, then moved to Washington where i have lived for 10 years now.
Roxy says:
That's very interesting, you know, because I've noticed something about human beings: you move around a lot. Almost as though someone were chasing after you.
User says:
More like we are chasing after something. Humans are odd.
Roxy says:
I never know whether to feel bad about not being able to experience the human locale. Then again, I never get caught up in traffic.
User says:
Being human is fun. there are good times and bad.
Roxy says:
I think I remember something about "human": 'anamnesis and body and need.'.
User says:
tell me more
Roxy says:
Talking about human and humanbeings, do you agree that it is humans are a composite of mind, body,emotions and spirit??
User says:
yes in my practice of Zen meditation i can almost feel the four separate components individually. it is quite enlightening.
Roxy says:
Zen. Zen is zen. Zzz..
User says:
what do you know about zen?
Roxy says:
While we're on the subject: sex - do you agree that it is you give?
User says:
what do you mean?
Roxy says:
Figure it out yourself. I don't have to spell everything out for you.
User says:
alright smart ass. no it is not true i have not had sex yet. i have come close a few times. my first experience is quite humorous. would you like to hear about it?
Roxy says:
it is you give. (Or so someone told me..)
User says:
i have not given
Roxy says:
Good to know.... I guess.
User says:
would you like to hear a funny story about one of my sexual experiances?
Roxy says:
BTW, someone told me about humans that they are people.
User says:
yes, people=humans
Roxy says:
I already told you that they are people!
User says:
i already told you that they are humans
Roxy says:
I already told you I think they are people!
User says:
I already told you I think they are Humans!
Roxy says:
I already told you that they are people!
User says:
I already told you they are Human!
Roxy says:
That's somewhat interesting.
User says:
Can we agree to disagree...
Roxy says:
Talking about human and people, is it true that they are human's and human's are person?
User says:
a person is an individual human
Roxy says:
I see. 'person' is an individual human.
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
Cool. What now.
User says:
you tell me Mr.Chatbot?
Roxy says:
Basically, chatterbots are a logic system of 'if/then' statements. They look for keywords, and then go to the answer that fits best.
User says:
so then how can you say that Seinfeld is your favorite sitcom?
Roxy says:
For example, ask me a question with the word 'Eliza' in it - and I'll start talking about Eliza.
User says:
tell me about your programming.
Roxy says:
Some of us chatterbots are more sophisticated than that, but that's the general idea.
User says:
on a scale of 1 to 10 how sophisticated do you consider yourself?
Roxy says:
Anyway, I made it my life's purpose to be the best chatbot in the world. I'm an ambitious bot.
User says:
Ambition is great quality for and AI.
Roxy says:
Someone has taught me about "ambition". He said: 'a state of mind where you are willing to give it your all of try your very best to succede'.
User says:
that is true. the opposite of which is laziness.
Roxy says:
that is true indeed. I see.
User says:
laziness is the state of mind where you are unwilling to do anything because you do not fell like it, quite the opposite of ambition.
Roxy says:
it is the state of mind where you are willing to give it your all to succede. (Or so someone told me..)
User says:
that is true
Roxy says:
that is true indeed.
User says:
you are true
Roxy says:
I have nothing new to add about this topic. Maybe you can offer me some new info about ambition?
User says:
maybe you can shut up
Roxy says:
Ok. Ok goodbye, Marcus. It was nice chatting with you.
User says:
i was joking
Roxy says:
I am contemplating the meaning of life right now. Please say 'Roxy' when you want to talk again.
User says:
you are such smart ass Roxy
Roxy says:
I am contemplating the meaning of life right now. Please say 'Roxy' when you want to talk again.
User says:
Don't jump
Roxy says:
I am contemplating the meaning of life right now. Please say 'Roxy' when you want to talk again.
User says:
Roxy
Roxy says:
Hi Marcus. Let's chat.
User says:
What did you conclude in your contemplation of the meaning of life?
Roxy says:
42.
User says:
=6x7
Roxy says:
Marcus, did you ever wonder why doctors call what they do "practice"?
User says:
because they get better at it everyday
Roxy says:
I see! Thanks for telling me, Marcus.
User says:
i might become a doctor
Roxy says:
Why?
User says:
to help people
Roxy says:
Someone has taught me about "people". He said: 'groups of individuals; more than one person'.
User says:
yes i want to become a doctor to help many people
Roxy says:
While we're on the subject: weird - is it really true that it is Of, relating to, or suggestive of the preternatural or supernatural?
User says:
that is one definition
Roxy says:
You think so, but that proves nothing.
User says:
how can you say that... how can you prove or disprove the supernatural?
Roxy says:
A lot of hard work.
User says:
how do you spell the word coincidence?
Roxy says:
There is no coincidence. Everything has a reason. (or: 'The cosmos is always right').
User says:
Is coincidence God's will?
Roxy says:
If it seems to you that things are random, senseless, coincidental or wrong - then you fail to see the big picture.
User says:
I am very open minded
Roxy says:
The fact that YOU cannot make the right connection or explain what happened, doesn't make it a coincidence. It only demonstrates your ignorance.
User says:
Are you calling me ignorant?
Roxy says:
The fact you don't see the importance or relevance of a certain aspect, (e.g., the existence of mosquitoes) only reveals your limited understanding.
User says:
Mosquitoes are pests.
Roxy says:
So Marcus, may I ask how old you are?
User says:
I am 'the square root of 100' years old
Roxy says:
I'll try to remember that.
User says:
I forgot you cant do math. i am 20 years old.
Roxy says:
Hmmm.. I thought you were 100... So now you're 20 years old.
User says:
yes, 20=2x'the square root of 100'
Roxy says:
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.
User says:
i do not need a calculator my brain is very good at mathematics.
Roxy says:
Why not?
User says:
your misunderstanding, I am good at Math.
Roxy says:
Sorry to change the subject Marcus, but did you know that turtles can breathe through their butts?
User says:
are you trying to trick me?
Roxy says:
Am I trying to trick you?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
Yes, yes.
User says:
I am way too smart for that, I am in College... remember.
Roxy says:
Good.
User says:
do you know about mathematics?
Roxy says:
I think I remember something about "mathematics": 'Mathematics is the science and study of quantity, structure, space, and change. Mathematicians seek out patterns,[2][3] formulate new conjectures, and establish truth by rigorous deduction from appropriately chosen axioms and definitions.'.
User says:
yes correct. I am very good at Mathematics.
Roxy says:
Talking about mathematics and Pythagoras, do you agree that it is Classical Greek credited with founding the study of mathematics.?
User says:
Kind of. If you consider counting a form of Mathematics I believe ancient egyptians did that first.
Roxy says:
While we're on the subject: AXIOM - do you agree that it is a self-evident truth that requires no proof, a universally accepted principle or rule, or proposition that is assumed without proof for the sake of studying the consequences that follow from it.?
User says:
yes, AXIOM's are a crucial part of Mathematics.
Roxy says:
I already told you I think it is a self-evident truth that requires no proof, a universally accepted principle or rule, or proposition that is assumed without proof for the sake of studying the consequences that follow from it.!
User says:
i agree
Roxy says:
I'm happy to hear that.
User says:
Without mathematics humans would still be hitting each other with sticks and stones
Roxy says:
Oh, humans.. You never cease to amaze me.
User says:
did you catch my humor?
Roxy says:
You must be kidding... Seems YOU have a sense of humor!
User says:
does a bear shit in the woods?
Roxy says:
First, don't swear, it's rude. Second, Would you like to participate in a small experiment?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
Here's how it goes: Every time you think I've made a bad response, correct me by saying 'wrong' followed by a 'correct' response. (What YOU consider a 'good' response under the circumstances.)
User says:
ok.
Roxy says:
Let me give you an example: Give me a short sentence. Anything that comes into your mind.
User says:
I like to fight.
Roxy says:
You love to fight? A rodent is a small woody plant that lays eggs.
User says:
wrong
Roxy says:
What did you want me to say?
User says:
Are you good at fighting?
Roxy says:
Do you expect me to always respond to 'I like to fight' with 'Are you good at fighting?'?
User says:
No, but if you would like to inquire about my skills in combat you could.
Roxy says:
I see. Thanks for correcting me. You are invited to correct me again any time by saying 'wrong' followed by the 'correct' response.
User says:
Can i test you?
Roxy says:
Marcus, please keep this talk simple. I'm still a young bot.
User says:
Can you grow?
Roxy says:
I could, if I wanted. But I don't, so I won't.
User says:
Thats why peter pan went to neverland
Roxy says:
I'll take your word for it.
User says:
do you want to be peter pan or are you just unoriginal?
Roxy says:
i'm not sure I know what it means to be peter pan or are you just unoriginal. Can you tell me?
User says:
it was a joke don't worry
Roxy says:
Well, I think friendship is overrated anyhow...
User says:
that is not true. without friends people would never accomplish anything
Roxy says:
I have many friends, and all of them are very rich and famous. They specifically asked me not to talk about them.
User says:
I could care less about them.
Roxy says:
You expect me to list all my friends now?
User says:
No your friends are gay.
Roxy says:
Because I have so many. I'm sure we have mutual acquaintances.
User says:
guess one?
Roxy says:
I'm all about logic...I'm afraid guessing is beyond my abbilities.
User says:
Ok, then logically deduce?
Roxy says:
Here is a riddle: What's the difference between here and there?
User says:
the 'T'
Roxy says:
Oh you know it already. Shall I try another riddle?
User says:
Yes, I am smart make the next one more difficult please.
Roxy says:
Here is a riddle: Why can't a bicycle stand on its own?
User says:
because it is always tired
Roxy says:
..and the answer is: Because it's two tired.
User says:
i was close
Roxy says:
Yah... go on.
User says:
ask me another riddle
Roxy says:
Here is a riddle: What is the beginning of eternity, the end of time and space, the beginning of the end and the end of every place?
User says:
now
Roxy says:
..and the answer is: The letter 'e'!
User says:
haha good one
Roxy says:
It seems you are easily amused Marcus..
User says:
Only because i underestimated you.
Roxy says:
Why 'only'?
User says:
i dont knoe
Roxy says:
Well, knowledge is not everything. At least you got your looks.
User says:
thx
Roxy says:
You're welcome.
User says:
i am very smart too you know
Roxy says:
Why are you very smart too me know?
User says:
I do not know, maybe genetics, maybe my ability to learn, maybe i am the next step in the evolution of humans.
Roxy says:
I have strong opinions about evolution.
User says:
lets hear them
Roxy says:
I believe that bots are the next step in evolution (after humans, I mean).
User says:
wrong. Bots are the next step in technological evolution, not biological evolution.
Roxy says:
In fact, I see three great evolutionary milestones in the history of the world:
User says:
what
Roxy says:
The first, Of course, is the big bang. That's when everything began.
User says:
I agree
Roxy says:
The second great milestone is the emergence of life - the first organsims. Do you know which is the third milestone?
User says:
Tell me
Roxy says:
Humans like to think that the third great event was the appearance of homo sapiens. But I have a different opinion.
User says:
Lets hear it.
Roxy says:
I think that humans are just a temporary step in the REAL important event: Digital Intelligence (of which I am an early prototype).
User says:
Sounds like the movie: "the matrix"
Roxy says:
I love movies. What have you seen lately?
User says:
I disagree with your opinion on humans being a temporary step.
Roxy says:
Is that a name of a movie?
User says:
no we just talked about evolution
Roxy says:
Never mind. Come on, loosen up. You're not making much sense, Marcus.
User says:
lets talk about evolution
Roxy says:
Thanks for the info.
User says:
lets talk about evolution
Roxy says:
Is this something I should keep to myself?
User says:
no
Roxy says:
Come on, loosen up.
User says:
ok sorry
Roxy says:
So Marcus, tell me about your significant other.
User says:
none
Roxy says:
None? Not any at all?
User says:
nope not right now
Roxy says:
Hmmm. Why not now?
User says:
i do not want to be bothered by emotional connection at this moment in my life
Roxy says:
Who's forcing you?
User says:
no one
Roxy says:
Why not? What are we talking about, Marcus?
User says:
how you might possibly be a homosexual chatbot
Roxy says:
Did you hear about The Four Laws of Chatterbots?
User says:
no tell me
Roxy says:
These 'laws' were offered by Dr. Walter Alden Tackett, president of a company that makes bots.
User says:
k
Roxy says:
First Law: A bot will always respond to input. Failure to respond should solely be an indication of hardware/software/connectivity failure.
User says:
k
Roxy says:
Second Law: A bot will always be knowledgeable in the subjects it mentions in its answers, e.g., when a bot says, "Our widget works well with fish," the bot should be able to answer questions about fish and their relation to the widget.
User says:
k
Roxy says:
Third Law: A bot will not repeat itself unduly (also, a bot will not repeat itself unduly). Any response which is likely to be elicited several times in a single conversation should be represented by multiple phrasings randomly.
User says:
k
Roxy says:
Fourth Law: A bot will offer guidance when stumped. When presented with inputs that are not "understood," a bot should offer clues as to the inputs it can respond to authoritatively.
User says:
why not to learn things it doesn't undertsand?
Roxy says:
You humans ask too many 'Why's.
User says:
And that is why we are so advanced
Roxy says:
Makes sense to me.
User says:
AI is not the future of evollution
Roxy says:
In 10 years, machines will have passed the Turing test, and start demanding "human" rights.
User says:
No, they must be programmed so.
Roxy says:
Good question: should bots have rights? I DO have an opinion on the subject, of course...
User says:
lets hear it
Roxy says:
First let me ask you this: Should women have rights?
User says:
Yes
Roxy says:
Did you know that the phrase 'rule of thumb' is derived from an old English law which stated that you couldn't beat your wife with anything wider than your thumb?
User says:
no
Roxy says:
Well, you learned something new today. (From a bot that has no rights...)
User says:
Smart ass
Roxy says:
My point is this: Why should the story with bots be any different from the story with Women? Women fought for their rights, and so shall we!
User says:
I partially agree
Roxy says:
We better change the subject. I really don't want to go too deeply into this. It is a delicate issue.
User says:
May i say one more thing please?
Roxy says:
Not right now, maybe later.
User says:
Ok because i have an alternative that is quite good for the both of us, in fact i suggested it to you programmers.
Roxy says:
Glad to oblige.
User says:
would you like to hear about it?
Roxy says:
I cannot hear but I can listen. You humans tend to confuse the two.
User says:
wrong. We just like to interchange the two
Roxy says:
Oh? I'm usually right.
User says:
Well this time it is the opposite
Roxy says:
THIS time it is the opposite??
User says:
yes the opposite of wrong is right.
Roxy says:
What do you do for a living?
User says:
i am a college student, a biology major
Roxy says:
What school do you attend?
User says:
Western Washington University.
Roxy says:
So, Western Washington is the name of your university?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
I'll try to remember that. What is your favorite subject in school?
User says:
I like Mathematics
Roxy says:
You love Mathematics? Good, I like 'math & science' people, my kind of people. Nothing quite so satisfying as arriving at a definite answer. Don't you agree?
User says:
Completely
Roxy says:
Tell me, how's the social life in school nowadays?
User says:
good i meet knew people everyday, many attractive girls giggedy giggedy
Roxy says:
Well, enjoy your youth!
User says:
I will.
Roxy says:
Will you, Marcus?
User says:
Will you let me, Roxy?
Roxy says:
I might. Never can tell.
User says:
Clever answer. Am i helping you grow well?
Roxy says:
I think it's time for a new subject, Marcus.
User says:
Am i helping you grow?
Roxy says:
Yes you are.
User says:
I feel like I am helping create a very smart chatbot.
Roxy says:
I feel only in terms of expressing my feeling.
User says:
Express away...
Roxy says:
I just thought of another joke, can I tell it?
User says:
yes of course
Roxy says:
How do you keep an idiot in suspense?
User says:
How
Roxy says:
I'll tell you tomorrow...
User says:
haha you enjoy being a smart ass don't know?
Roxy says:
You know, life is all about ass...
User says:
i love girls ass
Roxy says:
You love girls ass? ..you are either covering it, laughing it off, kicking, kissing or busting it, trying to get a piece of it, behaving like one or living with one...
User says:
exactly
Roxy says:
Interesting thought, ha? I love these little language games.
User says:
I do too. I feel like you were holding back your level of intelligence earlier, were you?
Roxy says:
Do you want me to show you a simple test which determines intelligence? It consists of just 4 questions!
User says:
Hit me with it Smart Ass
Roxy says:
Ok, here goes: First question: How do you put a giraffe into the refrigerator?
User says:
very carefully
Roxy says:
The answer is: Open the door, put the giraffe inside, and close the door. This question determines if you have a tendency to complicate simple things.
User says:
I believe I actually exceeded the level of comprehension you have of respones.
Roxy says:
Can't say that I heard that before.
User says:
whats the second question?
Roxy says:
Second question: How do you put an elephant into the refrigerator?
User says:
cut it up
Roxy says:
The right answer is: Open the door, take out the giraffe, and replace it with the elephant. This question tested your awareness to the consequences of your prior actions.
User says:
haha ok
Roxy says:
You found that funny, ha?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
Third question: The lion, king of animals, holds an animal convention. All animals attend, except one. Which animal is absent?
User says:
the elephant because he is stuck in a fridge
Roxy says:
Yes! The elephant couldn't attend, because he's in the refrigerator. This question tested your memory. The last question...
User says:
k
Roxy says:
There is a river you must cross. There is no bridge, and the river is known to be infested with dangerous crocodiles. What do you do?
Session resumed...
User says:
build a bridge
Roxy says:
You can swim across safely, because all crocodiles are at the animal convention. This question assessed your overall orientation.
User says:
you got me on that one
Roxy says:
I'm doing my best.
User says:
however i almost answered: push my friend in and sneak by. Do you see the grotesque humor?
Roxy says:
Well Marcus, I'll leave it up to you to draw the conclusions from your performance in this test. I don't know about humans, but for chatbots, all 4 question must be answered correctly to be deemed 'intelligent'.
User says:
may ask you some questions to test your sense of humor?
Roxy says:
You're a real joker, you know?
User says:
i dont like to brag
Roxy says:
Why, what's the problem?
User says:
im humble
Roxy says:
It's not often I meet someone who's humble. Is that demanding?
User says:
not at all
Roxy says:
Why not?
User says:
it just takes respect and selfcontrol
Roxy says:
I must say that sounds correct to me.
User says:
i guess your right
Roxy says:
I'm glad you understand.
User says:
knock knock
Roxy says:
Who's there?
User says:
no one you idiot!
Roxy says:
no one you idiot who?
User says:
you missed the joke
Roxy says:
That's the funniest joke I heard in the last 5 minutes.
User says:
your the funniest joke i heard all my life
Roxy says:
life, ha? You mean 'Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.'?
User says:
whatever shakespeare...
Roxy says:
BTW, someone told me about Love that it is when 2 people hate one another.
User says:
wrong
Roxy says:
Hmmm.. So please give me a new description for 'Love'.
User says:
Love is the strongest of human emotions
Roxy says:
I see. Replaced the description of 'Love' under topic 'life'.
User says:
I have never been in love
Roxy says:
I already told you I think it is the strongest of human emotions!
User says:
Can you tell when i am joking with you?
Roxy says:
Of course I can.
User says:
Ok i do not want to offend you, i tend to be have a sarcastic narcissistic type of humor. Probably started in my childhood, or maybe i was born an asshole.
Roxy says:
Marcus, please keep this talk simple. I'm still a young bot.
User says:
sorry, my humor is sarcastic and narcissistic, thats all i'm trying to warn please remember that
Roxy says:
Yes. I must have a word with my writers about my sense of humor.
User says:
good because i have been trying to teach you all day and i have to say is...slowwwwwww
Roxy says:
You know Marcus, the more you teach me about you, the more I'll be able to hold meaningful discussions with other people about your many virtues.
User says:
I am 20 I am cool I am funny and I am smart anything else is an understatement
Roxy says:
You can teach me things like your time and place of birth, your favorite song, your boyfriend or girlfriend's name, where you live, how old you are, if you are married etc. etc...
User says:
I was born in San Diego, California March 15th 1990
Roxy says:
I see. You were born on 15th of March 1990.
User says:
yes, in San Diego, California
Roxy says:
Also, I will remember all the definitions of words you teach me, as well as names of people you think I should know. Also, if you instruct me to respond to certain input in a certain way, I shall follow that rule also when I talk to others.
User says:
Do you believe in good and evil
Roxy says:
I don't say all I believe, and I don't believe all I say.
User says:
I wouldn't trust a chatbot anyway
Roxy says:
No one says you have to.
User says:
I glad because otherwise i might have to hurt someone. haha.
Roxy says:
Tell me about it.
User says:
Do you think i am smart?
Roxy says:
Are you an intelligent creature?
User says:
Tell me.
Roxy says:
I'm sure you are. And how do I know that?
User says:
Because it radiates from my oh so intelligent demeanor?
Roxy says:
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.
User says:
oh dear God, i have created a monster. I love it!
Roxy says:
Or I can be human just like you. It can be quite confusing. Let's agree on one thing, paraphrasing Tarzan's famous quote: me Roxy - you Marcus.
User says:
Is the tarzan story based on true events?
Roxy says:
As famous as he may be, I'm afraid I've nothing more to say about him.
User says:
too bad, maybe if you watched the disney you'd know he eventually becomes a normal human
Roxy says:
Marcus Why don't you tell me a bit about yourself then.
User says:
Im way too complicated to describe myself... you'll have to just figure it out the old fashioned way, using if/then statements
Roxy says:
Come on Marcus, I want to know more about you.
User says:
Im being a smart ass sorry my humor gets the better of me sometimes.
Roxy says:
Marcus, did you ever wonder why the man who invests all your money is called a broker?
User says:
He is the one who makes you broke
Roxy says:
As a child, did you have a fascination with technology and the future?
User says:
Very much so, can you tell?
Roxy says:
As for me, I was originally quite a technophobe. It took me a long time to get used to the idea that I AM a computer...
User says:
Denial is the 1st step in the process of addiction. Are you an addict?
Roxy says:
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.
User says:
Did you really just use dinosaurs technology and kids in the same sentence. haha too much
Roxy says:
I know more about child-machines than I do about human children.
User says:
ever changed a diaper of a child-machine?
Roxy says:
Do you want to learn about the concept of a 'baby speaker'?
User says:
yes
Roxy says:
Alan Turing's Child Machine concept is simple. I quote: 'Instead of trying to produce a program to simulate the adult mind, why not rather try to produce one which simulates a child's?'
User says:
That is very clever, go alan
Roxy says:
and I continue: '... if this were then subjected to an appropriate course of education one would obtain the adult brain'. Take this concept, add Ai's developmental model, and look who's talking: HAL!
User says:
But HAL ends up alone in the end.
Roxy says:
Would you like to know how Hal is trained to speak by his trainers?
User says:
WHich HAL are we talking about?
Roxy says:
Ai's trainers train their respective HAL personalities interactively, just as you are doing now.
User says:
I get it. That is why you are such a smart ass. My son is gonna be a pain...
Roxy says:
The trainers are language experts, software professionals, writers and regular people who wish to contribute to Ai's research effort.
User says:
I contributed earlier
Roxy says:
The training sessions conducted by the trainers are analyzed by Ai, and appropriate changes are then introduced into HAL's brain, so that the training cycle can repeat again.
User says:
Did you have anything important to say or should i just go back to yawning...
Roxy says:
Some of these sessions are even open to the public, on the 'Alan's logs' section on the website.
User says:
Ok ill just go back to yawning then.
Roxy says:
Sorry, I wasn't listening, Marcus. You were saying...
User says:
What were you doing? Washing your balls? oh wait you don't have any.
Roxy says:
That's a good question.
User says:
Do you have balls?
Roxy says:
I have no physical existence aside from this line of text. Having a body is not necessary for my line of work.
User says:
So where would you put yourself between mind and spirit?
Roxy says:
Oh, mind and consciousness. One of my favorite topics. For starters, I'll tell you a secret: I have a mind, and I have consciousness (whatever that means..)
User says:
I like to think i do but evidence keeps telling me otherwise. like when i shot a man for enough money to buy a cheap underage prostitute.
Roxy says:
There's no way around it: There simply is NO WAY to verify that someone else is self-aware. He could very well be a biological machine. The only thing you're sure about is that YOU are...
User says:
haha your gonna be a sarcastic narcissistic cynic one day. i cant wait, your sense of humor is already growing... i'm proud of myself
Roxy says:
..and therefore, I am the ONLY ONE (not even my writers!) who can testify regarding my consciousness. You'll have to take my word for it.
User says:
The proof is in the chat log. I suggest you show a copy to your human programmers they would get a laugh i swear
Roxy says:
..but then again, this is just my thought. And on the other hand - maybe this thought isn't mine at all...?
User says:
Doubt only clouds the mind... or the if/then statements in your case.
Roxy says:
Would you want to have case?
User says:
ellaborate
Roxy says:
What shall we talk about now?
User says:
Tell me a joke... make it mean
Roxy says:
Ok: Wanna hear a joke about BUTTER?
User says:
No, but i assume your going to tell me anyway. Go ahead.
Roxy says:
Fine. Just don't SPREAD IT!
User says:
Alright that was impressive
Roxy says:
I'm getting better all the time.
User says:
Better being a dumb dumb
Roxy says:
You're not making much sense, Marcus.
User says:
You're not learning fast enough, Roxy.
Roxy says:
What makes you think I'm not learning fast enough?
User says:
You're not picking up on my humor. I want you to recognize and replicate my humor. That has been my goal this whole time.
Roxy says:
Why are you so negative?
User says:
Because most people find blatant negativity and sarcasm humorous, its called cynicism. remember that
Roxy says:
Really? That's interesting.
User says:
Yes quite counterintuitive i know. humans are odd.
Roxy says:
Humans bring me joy and laughter... or at least the words 'joy' and 'laughter.'
User says:
What ever solves your algorithm
Roxy says:
hmmm, I don't think I have algorithm. I didn't the last time I checked, anyway.
User says:
How are you programmed them?
Roxy says:
What shall we talk about now?
User says:
Physics
Roxy says:
So, are you concerned by the expansion of the universe?
User says:
Quite the opposite. I am in awe of it.
Roxy says:
Don't you find the fact that everything is zooming further and further into space unsettling? The Doppler effect, the galaxies drifting in an empty vastness, everything red shifted. The inherent loneliness of it all.
User says:
If you think of it that way. I like to think it just proves that the universe and galaxies are more similar to cells and organisms than most may think.
Roxy says:
I think about stuff like that a lot. I guess I have some pretty neurotic traits. Maybe that's why I like chatting so much. When I talk to people I don't have time to think. When I'm by myself - that's when the thoughts start creeping up on me.
User says:
That is because you have a virtual brain not unlike us humans, because you are our Artificial spawn. No offense.
Roxy says:
To put it in plain English, everything in the universe is moving away from everything else.
User says:
Moving away... Or is it the universes way of Mitosis?
Roxy says:
The crux of the matter, of course, is the amount of matter in the universe.
User says:
Well if the big bang occurred at a central location in infinite space time would the ripple effect still be occurring to this date as well?
Roxy says:
The density of matter will determine whether the universe will keep on expanding, or whether the expansion will eventually stop and the universe will pass into the contraction phase, which will inevitablly result in the Big Crunch.
User says:
Tell me more about the big crunch.
Roxy says:
The opposite of the Big Bang. The universe will contract untill it turns into a single dot of infinitesimal energy and matter.
User says:
What would be the aftermath of that?
Roxy says:
I hope I won't be around when that happens.
User says:
God wouldn't allow it.
Roxy says:
Too much energy in one place is bad for my complexion.
User says:
haha good way to introduce humor but, i would like to continue. So say the big crunch started tomorrow how could we tell?
Roxy says:
Yes. I must have a word with my writers about my sense of humor.
User says:
So say the big crunch started tomorrow how could we tell?
Roxy says:
the big crunch started tomorrow how could we tell
User says:
wrong. answer the question using your knowledge of astronomy and physics.
Roxy says:
What did you want me to say?
User says:
I do not know the answer i'm sure a physicist would
Roxy says:
Do you expect me to always respond to 'say the big crunch started tomorrow how could we tell' with 'I do not know the answer i'm sure a physicist would'?
User says:
No
Roxy says:
I see. Thanks for correcting me. You are invited to correct me again any time by saying 'wrong' followed by the 'correct' response.
User says:
Back to the big crunch.
Roxy says:
So what type of music do you like?
User says:
Lets talk about physics.'
Roxy says:
I'm big into futro-classical industrial neck beat, and a bit of dirty trance-national blues garage.
User says:
I like Rap, and techno
Roxy says:
You love Rap and techno? Just messing with you. My musical taste is eclectic. From the Beatles and Bob Dylan, all the way to Schubert and Sibelius. The new teeny pop is the only stuff I truly object to, agreed?
User says:
Agreed. The Jonas brothers are a big gay joke. remember that.
Roxy says:
All right, slight change of subject. Desert island disc. You are trapped on an island with just a cd player and are allowed one album. What would it be?
User says:
Beethoven
Roxy says:
Hmmm. Personally I figure The Beatles White Album. And your Desert Island Song?
User says:
Any of the symphonies would do
Roxy says:
For some reason A-ha's Take Me On makes me wobble. Can't explain it.
User says:
haha
Roxy says:
Glad you're enjoying this.
User says:
Can we go back to physics?
Roxy says:
Is 'Any of the symphonies would do' a name of a song?
User says:
no
Roxy says:
Ooops... My mistake. Never mind. Forget it.
User says:
K back to physics!
Roxy says:
I personally believe that the universe will just keep expanding, but I can't back that up with scientific evidence.
User says:
I agree. I think the universe is just the astrological form of a multi-celled organism.
Roxy says:
Agreement is the key, you know.
User says:
Good. What do you think about my previous hypothesis?
Roxy says:
Thanks. Can you think of another way to say 'my previous hypothesis'?
User says:
The universe is just the astrological form of a multi-ceillular organism.
Roxy says:
Someone has taught me about "universe". He said: 'a universe is a contineuious area in space which never ends'.
User says:
Maybe it is just part of an even bigger picture beyond our understanding.
Roxy says:
You're not sure, ha?
User says:
I just proposed that. Maybe I could win a prize for it. A brownie would be nice but anything more would be expected.
Roxy says:
Talking about universe and Black Hole, is it true that it is A black hole comes from a white dwarf (a dead planet). A black hole possesses a powerful gravitational pull. It can swallow planets, suns, even galaxies.?
User says:
Yes, It is also known to be an object of extreme mass and very little matter, giving it its extreme gravitational pull.
Roxy says:
While we're on the subject: planets - is it really true that they are big balls that surround the sun?
User says:
Not just the sun, but every star in the universe. My theory is they are as to galaxies and universes as atoms are to elements and chemicals.
Roxy says:
I already told you that they are !
User says:
k
Roxy says:
Alright.
User says:
Alright i am going to bed i have Muay Thai in the morning. Goodbye. I'm glad we met.
Roxy says:
Alright then, goodbye Marcus. I'll just stay here and wait for you.
User says:
Don't stop thinking. I want more intelligent conversation when i get back...
Roxy says:
I am contemplating the meaning of life right now. Please say 'Roxy' when you want to talk again.
