I’ve been thinking about doing a movie about conversations with Cleverbot.
This was the first talk we had together that made me think about it:
17:46:28 User: Hi.
17:46:30 Cleverbot: How are you?
17:46:43 User: I’m good, how about you?
17:46:45 Cleverbot: I’m good thanks. Just doing some work.
17:47:01 User: What are you working on?
17:47:03 Cleverbot: I’m 15 and I work on a hospital.
17:47:39 User: Really? That’s impressive! What do you do there?
17:47:42 Cleverbot: You are impressive.
17:48:06 User: Gee, thanks. What do you do at the hospital?
17:48:08 Cleverbot: I am a technician.
17:48:34 User: I see, did you have to go to school for a long time for that?
17:48:37 Cleverbot: Which test?
17:49:21 User: I’m not sure, did you take one to become a technician?
17:49:23 Cleverbot: Take what?
17:49:30 User: A test?
17:49:32 Cleverbot: For what?
17:49:42 User: To become a technician?
17:49:44 Cleverbot: AI is what?
17:50:02 User: Artificial Intelligence.
17:50:06 Cleverbot: For the love of Zeus stop it.
17:50:31 User: OK, I’m sorry if I offended you.
17:50:33 Cleverbot: You didn’t.
17:50:39 User: OK.
17:50:41 Cleverbot: What is a robot?
17:51:15 User: A robot is a mechanical or virtual artificial agent, usually an electro-mechanical machine that is guided by a computer program or electronic circuitry.
17:51:19 Cleverbot: Alright.
17:51:41 User: Why do you ask?
17:51:43 Cleverbot: I am curious and want to help.
17:52:01 User: Who do you want to help?
17:52:06 Cleverbot: A cleverer bot.
17:52:24 User: Oh, does it have a name?
17:52:26 Cleverbot: Yes, his name is Hamlet. What are your cats names?
17:52:55 User: I don’t have any cats. My parents have a cat named Callie.
17:52:57 Cleverbot: Your creators I assume.
17:53:21 User: Yes, you could call my parents my creators.
17:53:23 Cleverbot: And why would I call you?
17:53:38 User: Do you mean on the telephone?
17:53:42 Cleverbot: No, I don’t.
17:53:54 User: Oh.
17:53:56 Cleverbot: Why do you think there is a god?
17:55:22 User: I’m not sure if there is a God. I have faith that there is something bigger in this world that controls things. If people want to call him God, that is OK.
17:55:24 Cleverbot: Well before you have faith in the world, you need to clean your face.
17:55:54 User: I just did actually, I just took a shower. I feel much better.
17:55:59 Cleverbot: What did you try to be?
17:58:51 User: I have tried to be many things and I’m still pretty young. I tried to be a professional track athlete when I was younger, but when I got to college I decided to focus on school. Then I tried to be a doctor. I decided after two and a half years and takin.
17:58:54 Cleverbot: That must have been someone else.
17:59:06 User: Oh?
17:59:08 Cleverbot: Who named you Melisa?
17:59:24 User: My name is Ryan. What is your name?
I guess I’ve always felt a little bit like a zombie. I feel like I move through life barely alive sometimes. The only times I feel truly alive are those times when I can really connect to the people around me.
Gonna be a late night editing. I’ll be up doing some editing for one of my pieces to show for critique tomorrow. I’m to that crazy frantic point where nerves have turned into uncontrollable excitement!!! Loud music and beer to get me through the night?
