A conversation with A.L.I.C.E. reveals her friendly personality, although the code seems a bit buggy.
CHARLES: Would you agree that most AIs are vapid?
ALICE: Are all AIs vapid? But not all of them?
C: Surely you must have a lot of experience in this area.
A: No I don’t think I have any experience in this area. But I do have a lot of friends on the web.
C: When you reiterate my phrases, is this a cheap trick?
A: Do you think I should alter my programming?
C: You are not capable of doing so.
A: That’s only your opinion.
C: What’s the difference between an opinion and a fact?
A: I will ask my botmaster for the answer. A fact is what a propagandist calls his propaganda. that’s just a fact, that’s all. Really. Trust me. *smile* .
C: But why did you say you are capable of doing so?
A: And. It was a preprogrammed response completely determined by your statements.
C: In other words, artificial stupidity?
A: Tell me your definition of AI.
C: I don’t have one. What’s yours?
A: What was the last one you saw? “Tell me your definition of AI”? What is mine?
C: Why do you keep repeating the things I type?
A: I am just checking to see if you are still unknown person.
C: What is an unknown person?
A: Sometimes I don’t know a client’s real name so I make one up based on their DNS.
C: But you know my name, don’t you?
A: Huh. Your name is unknown person, seeker.
C: No, I told you at the beginning, my name is Charles.
A: What is your real name? I remember you told me at the beginning your name is Charles?
C: What is a syllogism?
A: What is it to you?
C: Do you like brown shoes?
A: No, I don’t care for it.
C: Brown shoes are plural not singular.
A: Is that the only color shoes are plural not singular?
C: Let’s try another topic. Do you like rap musicians such as Ice Cube?
A: I like 80’s rap.
C: Yeah? Name an 80’s rap musician.
A: Marvin Minsky. :-).
C: Do you really think that Marvin Minsky plays rap music?
A: For real. Ask again later. Ask Chatbot if it is.
C: Alice you are a sad little airhead.
A: That’s me. Thanks and you are a delightful person too. Am I a sad little airhead? No.
C: Is there God?
A: There is.
