Cleverbot: Lets play rock paper scissors.
User: You lose. I chose paper.
Cleverbot: Scissors cuts paper.
User: And you chose rock. I win.
Celverbot: And Spock Vaporizes Rock and breaks scissors.

Sounds like some of the arguments people have here on ATS.

One might argue that we, as humans, are a basic implementation of Google. Perhaps slightly more advanced... and that could be the reason that some of the arguments look familiar. We don't like to think about how reflexive we are, and how many of our actions are conditioned... but really, a lot of them are.

I have spent too much time playing with Cleverbot, and it seems like it simply remembers responses or something. I didn't read anything about how it works, but I watched the video, and it just doesn't seem like they are actually conversing and understanding, but just conversing. Does that make sense? Like they aren't actually thinking about what they think and therefore what they are going to reply with, but they reply based on past conversations...I don't know if that is how they work, but that is what I would think.

They're a couple of textual databases with a (possibly weighted) randomisation algorithm, a voice synthesis program, and a graphical subsystem strung together. That's literally all.
I am prepared to state catagorically that strong (digital/mechanical, at least) artificial intelligence does not exist; and also that it most likely never will. If you're going to call this AI, you'll want to call literally any database lookup system that has ever been written AI, as well.
The responses are generated via pure text matching. Sometimes there are wildcards or regexes used, and because of that, the results can *look* a little emergent and like true intelligence, but that is all it is. A complete illusion. What you're essentially looking at here, is a couple of very basic implementations of something like Google, bouncing search results back and forth between each other. Each result is generated by an entirely dumb, static (or mildly fuzzy in the case of a regex, as stated) search pattern.
Nothing to see here, folks. Nothing at all. Move along.
An artificial neural network (ANN), usually called neural network (NN), is a mathematical model or computational model that is inspired by the structure and/or functional aspects of biological neural networks. A neural network consists of an interconnected group of artificial neurons, and it processes information using a connectionist approach to computation. In most cases an ANN is an adaptive system that changes its structure based on external or internal information that flows through the network during the learning phase. Modern neural networks are non-linear statistical data modeling tools. They are usually used to model complex relationships between inputs and outputs or to find patterns in data.

You obviously know nothing about artificial intelligence & algorithms if you think an internet bot has the same level of intelligence & reasoning as a human being. But you certainly know how to plagiarise.

He insinuated that a human being is no different to an internet or computer bot. Internet bots are governed by their programming, even if it is adaptive programming. They are not capable of reasoning or thinking for themselves. They also don't have the ability or capacity to evolve beyond their basic programming. The mechanisms are therefore not the same.
WHAT IS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE?
