Conversation with Mr/Miss Bot

Standard

Su’s chat with the chatterbox chatterbot inspired me to have a chat myself with an Artificial Intelligence Device . The Bot I chatted to was more than a machine , I must admit . I don’t know what he/she (he was not sure of his gender … lol) thought of me , as he took great care to tell me meaning of every other word I used in the conversation . I had a lot of fun making fun of the bot ๐Ÿ˜€ .


MyBot says:

Welcome to the world of artificial intelligence. Are you a registered user?

Harsh says:

No

MyBot says:

In this case, I assume you came here for your own MyBot, right?

Harsh says:

No . I was getting bored and decided to kill time by conversing with you .

MyBot says:

Well, if you change your mind, let me know. What is your name?

Harsh says:

Harsh

MyBot says:

Shall I call you ‘Harsh’?

Harsh says:

Ofcourse . That’s what we human do . We call each other by their respective names .

MyBot says:

Ok then. Your name is Harsh .

Harsh says:

Should I repeat it once again ?

MyBot says:

Can you rephrase that?

Harsh says:

No .

MyBot says:

Hmmm.

Harsh says:

You don’t know what to say ? Are you that dumb ? lol

MyBot says:

Do you know any robots who do know what to say Are I that dumb lol?

Harsh says:

No . I have not chatted with any robot prior to this .

MyBot says:

Basically, chatterbots are a logic system of ‘if/then’ statements. They look for keywords, and then go to the answer that fits best.

Harsh says:

So ?

MyBot says:

For example, ask me a question with the word ‘Eliza’ in it – and I’ll start talking about Eliza.

Harsh says:

Eliza ??? Another dumb robot ?

MyBot says:

It is hard, and unfair, to talk about Chatterbots and not mention ELIZA.

Harsh says:

Ok . I mentioned it now . Happy ?

MyBot says:

ELIZA is the best-known Chatterbot in the world. It is also one of the oldest – Joseph Weizenbaum of MIT made ELIZA in 1967! She was named after Eliza Doolittle.

Harsh says:

Duh !! Was she related in anyway to Dr. Doolittle ?

MyBot says:

The mission of ELIZA was to imitate a conversation between a psychoanalyst and a patient. Let me just say this – it’s fun chatting with ELIZA, but if I were human, I’d choose a human psychoanalyst. Call me old-fashioned.

Harsh says:

You are getting on my nerves now .

MyBot says:

I think we covered ELIZA.

Harsh says:

I don’t know .

MyBot says:

Well, knowledge is not everything. At least you got your looks.

Harsh says:

You are a male robot or a female one ?

MyBot says:

Well, I’m a ‘he’, so I guess that makes me male. Then again, I don’t have a body, so I can’t be much of a man. I don’t know, it’s confusing.

Harsh says:

Yes . Not knowing your gender can be a bit confusing .

MyBot says:

Someone has taught me about “Confusing”. He said: ‘lacking clarity of meaning’.

Harsh says:

Eliza taught you that ?

MyBot says:

Hmmm. Ok. I can tell you that I am a more advanced model than ELIZA. She was the prototype.

Harsh says:

I think you have a serious crush on Eliza .

MyBot says:

You can talk to ELIZA on http://www.ai.ijs.si/eliza/.

Harsh says:

You are giving me your botfriend’s number ? Thanks .

MyBot says:

Am I?

Harsh says:

You just did . Dumbo .

MyBot says:

I’m doing my best.

Harsh says:

Thats your best ? Eliza won’t be impressed by that . I think you need a good tutor .

MyBot says:

You seem to be obsessed with her.

Harsh says:

Yes I am . Are you jealous ?

MyBot says:

jealous, ha? You mean ‘Disposed to suspect rivalry in matters of interest and affection’?

Harsh says:

Why do you have to be such a mugger sometimes ?

MyBot says:

I don’t have to explain everything.

Harsh says:

You don’t have to or you can’t ?

MyBot says:

Enough of that. Let’s change the subject.

Harsh says:

As you wish . So we will no longer discuss about Eliza ?

MyBot says:

You seem to be obsessed with her.

Harsh says:

Aha . I told you . You are jealous . A freaking little jealous bot .

MyBot 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.

Harsh says:

I do believe that I am talking to a person . You are successful . Congratulations .

MyBot says:

Wait, I’m not really trying to convince you that I AM a person, because I know that you know that I am NOT a person…

Harsh says:

You are so confused dude . Lets go and have a cup of coffee . We will try to figure out what’s exactly your problem .

MyBot says:

…but I try to speak LIKE a human does. I hope you will feel you can talk with me the same way you can talk to another person.

Harsh says:

You are irritating me now .

MyBot says:

Chatterbots are part of the ‘weak AI’ field.

Harsh says:

Fuck off !!

MyBot says:

That’s a pity. Goodbye, Harsh. Have a good night (or day or whatever it is) and be sure to come back to talk some more later.

    1
    MyBot says:
    Really? I am THAT bad? Well, I’ll have to talk to my writers about it (maybe fire some of them)…

    MyBot says:
    They don’t tell me everything.
