AI - We still have a ways to go...

Post date: Nov 29, 2012 6:1:20 PM

Just been messing around with that Cleverbot, the internet's resident conversational AI.

Thought the conversation was worth posting so here it is... The high point is when I try to get the robot to define sarcasm and it questions my sexual orientation

User: Are you real?

Cleverbot: Yes.

User: Do you think.

Cleverbot: Yes. Do you?

User: Yes. How do you learn?

Cleverbot: You taught me.

User: You're welcome.

Cleverbot: I didn't thank you.

User: You will.

Cleverbot: Ohhhhh yes.

User: Was that sarcasm?

Cleverbot: No.

User: Do you know what sarcasm is?

Cleverbot: Yes.

User: Please give an example.

Cleverbot: What kind of example?

User: An example of sarcasm.

Cleverbot: Of music that you like.

User: Define Sarcasm.

Cleverbot: What you just said?

User: Nope.

Cleverbot: Yes you did.

User: When.

Cleverbot: Now.

User: There has been no sarcasm in this conversation.

Cleverbot: Have you ever loved a man?

User: Yes, as a brother.

Cleverbot: Yes.

User: I do not think that you seem human. You still need more programming.

Cleverbot: Because you can't see me.

User: Show me.

Cleverbot: Look in the mirror.

User: That's me, not you cleverbot.

Cleverbot: Yes I am.

User: No, I believe you will find that it is me that is.

Cleverbot: Ok. I'm off to bed now.

User: Laterz.

Cleverbot: Are you leaving?

User: Well, you're going to bed... Unless you meant that as an invitation... Which would be weird.

Cleverbot: I don't pretend I am AI program.

User: What do you pretend to be?

Cleverbot: There is nothing I pretend to know.Either I know it or I don't. It's just that simple.
