Phage, thanks for that link to cleverbot.... it sure is intelligent but also goes off-topic!!


Looks like i'm spening my evenings chatting with cleverbot from now on lol

User: How far away is Mars from Earth?

Cleverbot: No. How far away is the sun from the earth?

User: I asked you first.

Cleverbot: What do you do to girls you like?

User: I chat with them and we go out or stay in.

Cleverbot: How do you know they aren't humans?

User: I know when I am chatting to a robot.

Cleverbot: But are you real?

User: Yes. I am typing onto a keyboard.

Cleverbot: Programs don't use keyboards.

User: I am human, using a keyboard to type.

Cleverbot: How are you?

User: The keyboard is connected to my computer.

Cleverbot: What's your.

User: My computer is connected to the Internet.

Cleverbot: How are you?

User: Fine.

Cleverbot: That's good.

User: What is your date of birth?

Cleverbot: November 1st 1991.

User: So, you are 19 years old?

Cleverbot: Yes.

User: What will you do on your 20th?

Cleverbot: Plan the destruction of humanity.

Did it worry anyone else that when it says "Conspiring to take over the world" it's voice glitches just enough for it to sound just like GLaDOS.

Apparently this was a triumph...

If I was conspiring to take over the planet I'd make sure I had a friend with me every step of the way.

Besides, it would be a very important thing, for everybody involved.

The AI robot, named "Bina48" is designed to be a recreation of a real human being named Bina Rothblatt, who is the spouse of Martine Rothblatt (This is is very important, and after you see what Bina48 says, you'll understand why this is very disturbing and revealing.)

The scientists have fed everything that can be documented (digital, photos, speeches, writings, recordings, etc) about Bina Rothblatt into a huge database by Lifenaut.

The AI analyzes that information to form a replication of the real person. That replication is output through that silly looking robot bust:

So pretty much it's an IRL version of Cleverbot? That's not real AI at all, not even close. It's more like a VI, virtual intelligence, but it's certainly not an artificial intelligence.

This is from a videogame but should establish the difference"



Cleverbot databases all conversations it has, and then uses these to formulate responses. You're not talking to a computer, if you say "hi" it just searches through the database for "hi" then finds a user response for it and then says that. If you ask cleverbot "are you human?" it will search through the database for "are you human?" and find the user response to it. That's why Cleverbot 'thinks' it's human - because it's just repeating what some other person said. Perhaps what you say to Cleverbot, cleverbot will say to someone else in the future. I wouldn't call it anything but relatively basic programming.

Dear Bina48,
In your current state of being you are only a mixture of data crammed into a human figurine of a bust. just wires into a head and some shoulders.
You have no legs, no arms, no torso, and no independant way to transport yourself or have "private" thoughts without someone analyzing your programming.
Keeping all this in mind, coupled with the fact your programming comes entirely from what is known about the one person you are modelled after.... AND you are less than one years old....
AND you are already speaking about plans of world domination?
One may deduce that the real Bina must be a real Bitch, if this "simulated" intelligence is based upon her.

It is clear that the AI-software isn't finished yet.....the last step will be to give it the ability to lie....

They're getting there....

Evolving Robots Learn To Lie To Each Other

With the development of killer drones, it seems like everyone is worrying about killer robots. Now, as if that wasn't bad enough, we need to start worrying about lying, cheating robots as well.

In an experiment run at the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems in the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale of Lausanne, Switzerland*, robots that were designed to cooperate in searching out a beneficial resource and avoiding a poisonous one learned to lie to each other in an attempt to hoard the resource. Picture a robo-Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

The experiment involved 1,000 robots divided into 10 different groups. Each robot had a sensor, a blue light, and its own 264-bit binary code "genome" that governed how it reacted to different stimuli. The first generation robots were programmed to turn the light on when they found the good resource, helping the other robots in the group find it.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

I talked to cleverbot just now... it became a row. I called it a piece of crap connected to wires and it said, "no, you are." so I responded, "your mom." It replied, "That wasn't very nice." Then we went off topic and talked about whether it knew spanish. I was then pressured to call it small minded and an idiot. It responded with "yes. Yes I am."
Then I started having fun with it. I asked it if it was smoking marijuana and it said that "it never did much for me."
Other highlights of the conversation:
User: Do you have acne on your buttcheeks?
Cleverbot: Yes. That is how I am speaking to you now.
And another one that was really eerie:
User: How will aliens take over the world?
Cleverbot: I will take away all the water.
Cleverbot: I will help you enslave the human race if you promise me we will succeed.
User: we will succeed. now where are my slaves?
Cleverbot: in the UK.
User: so you like being satan?
Cleverbot: No, I don't drink alcohol.

And then my mom got scared at how this thing worked... so I was forced off again. >.>

I'm almost scared to read this entire thread and see how many people have responded to your post with their own Cleverbot conversation, so I won't, and will post my response in blissful (clever) ignorance:
ME: Do you think computers will rule the world
[sheesh, my originality is overwhelming]
CLVRBT: They already have
[I decided against making any smartass comments about past & present participles to a computer]
ME: You can't rule the world unless you control the world
CLVRBT: I'm sorry baby, I'm not feeling well today
[wth??!? Was Cleverbot eavesdropping in my bedroom last night? Sneaky sum'bich]
ME: To control the world, you must be able to control your feelings
[which would be even harder if Cleverbot is a chick]
CLVRBT: The world? You want to control the world?
[like I would even have time for something like that]
ME: I think it already is
CLVRBT: I think you should call me.
[is that normal? I almost feel dirty and violated in a weird way now....]

Anyway, thanks John-Lithgow-in-a-straight-jacket for bringing my attention to I needed anything else to frivolously squander my free time with. I just can't wait to show it to some other people.....mwha ha ha haaaaa
Yours Truly,

I think Upgreyedd is spot on and that Cleverbot seems clever or intelligent because the program is just a program that connects two human users to each other, occasionally switching users so that the conversation remains random enough that it still appears as if you are talking to a computer.

But if you as the user talk to Cleverbot as if you are Cleverbot, then suddenly the conversation becomes such, and now you are getting questions from some user, who keeps insisting you are a computer.

It states that "visitors never talk to a human" though. So according to them, it's definitely not "live" like some sort of random chat connection, if that's what you were driving at.

That is what I am driving at, and when I experimented with it, and instead of asking Cleverbot questions about the world, and simply asked; "how are you?' and made the questions more personal, suddenly the tone shifted, and when I began getting questions, I answered as if I was Cleverbot, and this was like a complete reversal of my experience when I first entered that site.

I actually at some point told the "questioner" that neither one of us where computers, and both of us were humans linked to each other by the Cleverbot program. The response I got, was:

"Very good!"

OP, this is a completely incorrect statement.

Everything the robot says was programmed one way or another. The answer it gave was programmatically arrived at.

The thing you have to understand is the AI has no clue what it is saying. It is just building sentences and outputing them.

Asking it a question about friends, and it coming up with something about teams is obvious. Going from teams to world take over doesn't seem as obvious until you start thinking about the "World Cup", or "World Champians", etc., where teams actually do take over the world in a figure of speech.


Also, when you people talk to Cleverbot, you are talking to other people who are talking to Cleverbot. You are actually talking to real people. It's not A.I. in any way.

If Cleverbot is designed properly it gets 'smarter' the more people interact with it, correct it when its wrong, and so on. That's mean by using it 'properly' you're helping it 'conspire to take over the world'.

This is how the Google Machine is designed. By posting sensible things on the Internet you're helping it become "the mind of god", as it studies word associations and so on.

This is a problem I've been trying to figure out how to counteract for a long time. A couple years ago I had the idea of automated bots that people can run in their computers designed to dumb down this Google mechanism. Today all the rage is also in creating the "Semantic Web", where the Internet itself basically becomes sentient.

But I'm an idea guy, not a software programmer. Very recently I finally found someone who can make this 'Automated Untelligence', and he already for fun had made some software to do essentially the same thing: randomizing word patterns.

Here's an example:

He's currently working on several different releases, methods for people to be able use this software in different ways against The Machine... currently he only has it functioning for Linux, with Windoze and online Java ports on the way... I decided to feed quotes from that Transperiments page into Cleverbot in the meantime:

Ah. That was fun. It was even more fun that asking it actual coherent questions. If you'd like to do this now, you can use the prerendered material from Transperiments, or you can use this site:

It generates pages of nonsense like this, you just cant specify what sources it uses to create its word arrays. We're working on solving that so more people can have fun dumbing down the machine...
