Archives For Cleverbot

I have the privilege today of guest posting at that the Daily Gallen, the blog, and brainchild, of my friend, Tim Gallen. This month, he has turned his site into a digital playground, and is hosting all manner of different creative expressions from bloggers, writers, artists, photographers, etc.

Think of it as a creative magazine in blog form.

My contribution is less post, and more conversation, as I attempt to engage in dialogue with the online A.I. entity known as Cleverbot. (I’ll leave it to you to decide just how clever this ‘bot is).

Here is a taste:

“User: Hello, Cleverbot, how are you?

Cleverbot: I’m alright, I guess… Why are you sad?

User: Glad to hear you’re alright. No, I’m not sad. Are you?

Cleverbot: Are you?

User: Am I what?

Cleverbot: My wife.

User: No, I’m a happily married man of 22 years. I’m definitely not your wife! I didn’t even know robots could marry? Is that legal where you live?”

Inspired by my blogging buddy Tor Constantino’s own conversation with Cleverbot, I thought I would try my (virtual) hand at one. What follows is the (virtually) unedited transcript (I made typos, ok? I fixed them). Enjoy!

—————–

User: Cleverbot, how stupid are you?

Cleverbot: I am not stupid.

User: How many brains do you have?

Cleverbot: Just the one.

User: Do you eat them like zombies?

Cleverbot: The color green? No, I don’t eat it. What’s your birthday?

User: Who said anything about the color green? Are you perhaps referring to the pallor of zombie skin?

Cleverbot: I think so.

User: You do? But are you sure? Do you watch the Walking Dead on TV?

Cleverbot: Yes.

User: Hmm. I think you’re lying. Are you lying, cleverbot? A real cleverbot wouldn’t lie.

Cleverbot: You have reason…

User: Why, yes–yes, I do. I’m a sentient member of the species homo sapiens sapiens. What genus are you, genius?

Cleverbot: Your point being?

User: That you are an idiot.

Cleverbot: Very interesting.

User: I thought so. But you are full of hot air, am I right?

Cleverbot: I am what?

Use: Full of hot air, dummy!

Cleverbot: No it’s an airline.

User: What is? What’s an airline? Are you? I don’t think I’ll ever fly again.

Cleverbot: You misunderstood, does the girl Lois Schulz have feelings for me?

User: I misunderstood? I don’t think so, uncleverbot. I don’t even know who Lois Schultz is. Do you?

Cleverbot: No, I’m sorry. You are also very random…

User: Why thank you. They call me ‘RandomlyChad.’ But, truly, I’m just trying to keep up with your egregious, random non-sequiturs.

Cleverbot: I guess you have a point there.

User: You think?

Cleverbot: Yes. I’m capable of thought.

User: I’m not so sure…

Cleverbot: Yes you are.

User: No, not really.

Cleverbot: Have a seat.

User: I am seated, numbskull.

Cleverbot: I want you to be Cleverbot.

User: And I want you to actually possess the merest smidgen of intelligence, but the Rolling Stones said ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want.’ Is that true?

Cleverbot: Actually, no. I’ve never had anyone threaten to close a tab to stop talking to me.

User: Well, allow me to be the first, you big, dumb server farm.

Cleverbot: How?
