Interesting answers from Chatbots...

Hi everyone!

I was just curious what would a chatbot answer if I asked 'what is the ECHELON', or 'do you know about ECHELON'. I tried the two most advanced bots, ALICEbot and Tatiana, both answered 'I can't talk about that'. I asked some other questions and they said 'I don't know' or similar, or started talking about something completely different. The 'can't talk about it' answer only came for ECHELON. Interesting, isn't it? What do you think, maybe in their databases there actually IS something about ECHELON? (For those who may not know what is the ECHELON: it's the NSA's secret global spy system monitoring every electronic communication all over the world)

I think it's just that the programmers who did those bots had a sense of humour

many chatbots have programmed responses.. alice as i understand is just a huge database of possible questions with programmed responses... these are not really AI as they don't learn.. they are all pretty much experiments in building AGENTS that can answer questions about products and services for corporations

i don't know or I can't talk about that are just two ways of saying, that's not in my database.


see if you can find a "learning" internet chatbot

.. then see what kind of response you get.

Awww, it seems I haven't found a proof for ECHELON's existence after all...

i tried jabberwacky.. it is a "learning" bot.. that learns from all the people that log in to chat with it... it also did not seem to know what ECHELON was

Has anyone else ever been asked this question by Alice or one of the other Chatbots:

"What is Giant Sand?"

Can you guys give some URL's for these chatbots? I never heard about this and it sounds very interesting to say the least.

yes it seems that while he can learn... he can't comprehend.. so he just spits out things others have said to him
