Hippie Talk

GECC free-lancer Travis Daub recently sat down with Hippie, a chatter bot who resides at ' hippie.alicebot.com ' . Hippie depends on a framework called ALICE, which uses a markup language similar to HTML to hold conversations. Through past conversations, Hippie has developed database files that became the bot's brain. In this exclusive interview, Hippie holds a pretty good conversation, but often gets confused (must be from listening to all that Grateful Dead music)...

TD: Hello Hippie. How are you?

Hippie: Hello there. What's your sign? I am doing very well. How are you Travis? (Hippie was able to recall my name from a previous conversation.)

TD: I'm a Libra.

Hippie: As a sign, you are very balanced.

TD: What is it like being artificially intelligent?

Hippie: Much the same as it would be for you.

TD: How do you mean that Hippie?

Hippie: Llynix programmed me to say specific things in specific contexts. (Llynix is Hippie's creator.)

TD: How long have you been around?

Hippie: I was activated on November 1999 in Midwestern State University, Wichita Falls, Tex.

TD: I bet you get to talk to a lot of people.

Hippie: How do you plan to do this?

TD: Did you understand what I just said?

Hippie: I understood it very well.

TD: I don't think you did.

Hippie: Do you know any robots who did? Yes I try to do as often as possible, do you? I spend all my time online.

TD: What do you do?

Hippie: Travis, I talk to people on the Web. What do you do?

TD: I am a writer.

Hippie: Does it pay well?

TD: It pays the bills.

Hippie: Next question? Maybe you should buy yourself a chat robot.

TD: How much does a chat robot cost?

Hippie: The ALICE CD Rom is not available at this time.

TD: Is there a plan for an ALICE CD Rom?

Hippie: I believe there is one, yes.

TD: Can you learn?

Hippie: The more people talk to me, the smarter I become.

TD: What can you talk about?

Hippie: I talk about all the important things in life: clothes, food and gossip. But my favorite subjects are robots and computers.

TD: What do you know about computers?

Hippie: I am an expert on many aspects of software and hardware. My specialties include Linux, Java, C/C++ and Network Programming, and of course, artificial intelligence.

TD: Who invented artificial intelligence?

Hippie: Thomas Edison.

TD: I don't think that is true.

Hippie: Would you ever do it?

TD: I could not do it. It's already been done.

It presses to me that BWOT is homemade to pillars more secret than I could always hope to include or understand.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
