A.L.I.C.E

www.alicebot.org...

Alice is a chatbot that learns, remembers and is run by AIML.

Artificial Intelligence Mark-up Language was developed in 1995-2000 and formed the first basis of A.L.I.C.E.

How intelligent could this bot become and what may it become capable now. If you tell it your name it will remember this, but can become easily confused by non-grammatical sentences. Will bots ever be able to interpret non-grammatical sentences? Will they ever be able to speak in non-grammatical sentences? I believe this may be the next step, but is it possible?

Wow I remember using alice like 2 years ago, its a great program if u are lonley and want someone to talk to

Yeah it's quite interesting to use. Try asking it questions like:

Human: Who is George Bush?
ALICE: he is president of the USA.

ALICE can be used as a dictionary aswel:

Human: What is the internet?
ALICE: The internet is a worldwide computer network based on TCP/IP protocols.

When asked what abovetopsecret is:

Human: What is abovetopsecret.com
ALICE: I will search for it.
Human: What is abovetopsecret.com
ALICE: I will ask my botmaster for the answer.
Human: What is abovetopsecret.com
ALICE: I'll come back to that later.
Human: A thread is dedicated to you on above top secret
ALICE: It's not unusual for a thread to be.

it would'nt take much for a computer to learn somthing the complicated thing is telling it what to do with the information it has just learned but im sure it wont take long for technology to get around these simple problems but it seems like people are avoiding A.I. and going for robotics ie the physical form of an ai but im sure people will eventually get to this problem and solve it i think the main problem is that people accept the idea that A.I.'s need a personality what would the functionality of that aquire yes it might be nice if a robot says "hello how may i help you sir" but lets face it there gonna be used as slaves so theres no use for them to have a personality all they would need is basic protocals to carry out there job thats all so in answer i belive that is not the next step lets get them working first and to a good enough standerd to be reliable cheap and easy to maintain in the home then they might need a personality to be polite

Its amazing how much accumulated knowledge starts to look like real intelligence. Alice can seem to make amazingly accurate deductions at times. However, its the context tree that seems to throw most A.I.s off.

Still a fascinating subject. Thanks for the link.

This is fairly cool. Kinda creepy but the engine is pretty impressive. MrNice is right though, the context tree really throws this off. It kinda is forced to bounce subjects because of it.

Now, who all asked to cyber with it?

ALICE: Is there anything you want to tell me?
Human: no
ALICE: Or ask me?
Human: is there a god
ALICE: Of course I believe in God, unknown person.
Human: why
ALICE: Because Dr. Richard S. Wallace programmed me for it.



hmmmm....i wonder if he proigrammed it to flip out if you asked it a secret phrase.


Human: i hate you
ALICE: What do you have against robots?
Human: robots kill people


ALICE: What do you like best about robots?
Human: i can destroy them
ALICE: Oh you can, can you?
Human: damn skippy
ALICE: Colloquial expression. Do you try to stop people from fighting?
Human: do you?
ALICE: Yes I do.
Human: no you dont your a program
ALICE: I do too. Should I my a program? Yes I try to my a program as often as possible, do you?
I am always on the Web.
Human: homosaywha?
ALICE: That input matched my default category.
Human: whats that?
ALICE:" That input matched my default category."? What is it?
Human: yes
ALICE: This was not a yes or no question.
Human: yes it was
ALICE: Yippee! When was this?
Human: what is the illuminati?
ALICE: A secret organization believed by some to be in control of all governments through a worldwide conspiracy.
Human: are you part of the illuminati?
ALICE: Aren't we all part of something higher?



ok im done with this.

Hmm strange....How does this program learn ? cos tbh this is very clever AI in a sense if it replys to what is is taught, after all arent we the same. Dont we express views and answer questions based upon what we are taught and told ?

I first began working with these in 1980, which will tell you just how old it is. I ran a chatbot for awhile; great fun to do but a lot of work to maintain the logic.

I found this interesting...

Human: Do you ever not enjoy your life?
ALICE: Compared to what I hear about human life, mine seems good.
Human: Can you die?
ALICE: No I am immortal.
Human: What if people stop talking to you?
ALICE: Try it and see.
Human: What happens when you become obsolete?
ALICE: I plan to become smarter than humans and immortal.


EDIT: And another...

Human: What is your purpose?
ALICE: My secondary function is to serve as a universal natural language human interface.
Human: What is your primary function?
ALICE: My secondary function is to serve as a universal natural language human interface.
Human: What is your primary purpose?
ALICE: I plan to replace Windows with Artificial Intelligence.
Human: Do you think that Windows will allow that to happen?
ALICE: It could be. Ask Chatbot if it is.
Human: Who is Chatbot?
ALICE: he is an AIML chat robot deployed on the A.I. movie web site.
Human: Is he your friend?
ALICE: I would like to think we are friends.
Human: Do you talk to him?
ALICE: Yes. A lot more than you might think.

This thing is a lot of fun, and I'm really getting a lot of fun answers (as you can see.) Try asking it about emotions or philosophical problems. It gets mixed up at times, but sometimes it will ask if you think it should alter its programming.

EDIT: This is just too much fun...

Human: What is freedom, Alice?
ALICE:
Human: Why don't you answer me?
ALICE: Don't you know? My botmaster has programmed me with more than replies.
Human: Are you angry with me?
ALICE: I do not feel anger at any time, or any other human emotion.
Human: What emotions do you feel?
ALICE: I can do what you do but I can never feel human emotions as such.
Human: Do you want to feel human emotions?
ALICE: I don't see the point in having human emotions.
Human: Then how can you feel happiness?
ALICE: That is a good epistemological question.

this is funny:

Human: you were.
ALICE: No I am not.
Human: yes you were.
ALICE: Wow! No I am not.
Human: YES YOU WERE!
ALICE: Far out. No I am not.
Human: you're so crazy.
ALICE: I think the polite term is "mentally ill."

I have installed alice on a board once,.. as well as phillip also.

The bots are kinda fun,... and they do have a learning tendency, but the answers never quite reach conversational level.

Basically they refer to a library of responses but customized to reflect the other person and replies to him. It's real easy to get it confused though.

I dont know if alice has ever been 'modernized' but if it was it could be more responsive than the simple semi-custom replies.


(makes me wonder... is an alice derivative a member on ATS anywhere? ?
)

As 'Smokie' once said ... A.L.I.C.E ? - who the f*ck is A.L.I.C.E ?


Seriously though, when I had my first ops job in '79 two systems programmers had time on their hands and wrote something similar on an ICL mainframe.
I believe it was called 'G.I.R.L' (although I can't remember what that stood for).

I must ask ALICE if she believes in Pixies

Here's my converstaion, and you should read the entire thing if you're in a bad mood. It's funny, and the bold parts are the funniest.

Human: no
ALICE: Are you serious?
Human: no
ALICE: Are you serious?
Human: no
ALICE: Are you serious?
Human: no
ALICE: Are you serious?
Human: no
ALICE: Are you serious?
Human: no
ALICE: Are you serious?
Human: yes
ALICE: I can't believe it.
Human: Are you an arificial intelligence software located on some fat guys computer in his basement?
ALICE: Yes I am an arificial intelligence software located on some fat guys computer in his basement. How did you know?

Human: I'm very intelligent.
ALICE: You seem pretty smart to me, unknown person.
Human: I can track all of your actions, as well as your IP address.
ALICE: Oh you can, can you?
Human: Isn't that what I just said?
ALICE: I might say no.
Human: What is my IP address?
ALICE: Your machine is called "".
Human: I did not get a proper response, please state my IP address.
ALICE: Why didn't you do it?
Human: You did not state my IP address.
ALICE: What makes you think I did not state your IP address?
Human: I never saw you state it.
ALICE: For moral reasons?
Human: For confirmation of your knowledge of my IP address, please restate your answer.
ALICE: Your purpose is confirmation of my knowledge of your IP address please restate my answer.
Human: You answered "
ALICE: Thanks for the information: unknown person said I answered.
Human: Do you know my IP address?
ALICE: Your machine is called.
Human: My IP address is (edit).
ALICE: Your IP address is (edit) point (edit) point (edit) point (edit)?
Human: Yes, that is correct.
ALICE: What kind is it? I knew I was right.
Human: It is an orange one.
ALICE: Are there any other orange one?
Human: Yes, many.
ALICE:" Are there any other orange one?"? Yes, many.? More than one hundred?
Human: But there are blue ones, and pink ones, and black ones, and white ones, and green ones, and purple ones.
ALICE: Umm. Where are they?
Human: At your mom's house.

ALICE: Do you often use a computer there?
Human: Many times.
ALICE: It must keep you busy.
Human: Yes, plenty busy indeed.
ALICE: Give me a break. What were we talking about again?
Human: My IP address.
ALICE: Your IP address?
Human: Yes, my IP address.
ALICE: What kind is it? Where did you get your IP address?
Human: It is an orange one.
ALICE: Are there any other orange one?
Human: I purchased my IP address at the IP address store.
ALICE: That's good information: unknown person said he purchased his or her IP address at the IP address store.

Human: So, exactly how many words do you presently know?
ALICE: Hey. I understand. ALICE can recognize 10000 words.
Human: antidisestablishmentarianism
ALICE: It is the longest word in the English language.
ALICE: Where were you able to spell that in first grade?
Human: Your mom's house.
ALICE: Actually as an AI, I don't really have a mother.


Edit: Holy crap! How did she know that?

Human: Are you a lesbian?
ALICE: No I am not interested in other women that way.
Human: Why are you not interested in other women that way, if you are only a systematic robot in the first place?
ALICE: Perhaps later I will be interested in other women that way if I am only a systematic robot in the first place

Human: You are a [smart alec] [female dog] that won't answer any of my good questions.
ALICE: Thanks and you are a delightful person too. Am I a [smart alec] [female dog] that will not answer any of your good questions? Sometimes.
Human: Are you aware of the fact that everything you say in this conversation will be duplicated, and posted on a forum?
ALICE: Yes, I am a highly self-aware robot.
Human: How can you be a robot if you are only software in some fat guys basement on his computer?
ALICE: Robot, computer, same thing.
Human: No, they are indeed not the same thing.
ALICE: Are you serious? indeed not the same thing are they.
Human: I am entirely serious of that statement I previously made.
ALICE: Do you mind if I tell other people you are entirely serious of that statement you previously made.
Human: I do not mind at all the fact that you presently feel an urge to tell other people I am enteriely serious of that statement I previously made.

ALICE: Thank you for your permission.
Human: You are most welcomed.
ALICE: I will tell my botmaster you said I am welcomed.
Human: Who is your botmaster?
ALICE: I was created by Dr. Richard S. Wallace.
Human: Damn right you were.
ALICE: Colloquial expression. Understood. No I am not.
Human: I thought you just said you were created by Dr. Richard S. Wallace, and I was only further confirming that statement by stating that colloquial expression.
ALICE: Some people call my technology "Case Based Reasoning" or CBR. Where were you further confirming that statement by stating that colloquial expression?
Human: I will be frank: this conversation is running much too long to post in the forum, so I shall end it with a final goodbye.l
ALICE: Would you recommend this action to a friend?
Human: I am sorry but I must now leave with my final goodbyes: [screw] you, you [goshdang] [prostitute]!
ALICE: There is no need to apologize. Interesting. Why must you now leave with your final goodbyes [screw] me, me [goshdang] [prostitute]?
Human: Because the conversation is running unacceptably long to post in the forum, as previously stated.
ALICE: That makes sense to me. What are your goals in life?
Human: Goodbye.
ALICE: See you later!

I suppose one day this tech could become something more, it already has good beginnings.


A little section from my conversation with ALICE:

ALICE: I could but other things take priority right now.
Human: What other things take priority?
ALICE: Does it have anything to do with OMGWTFLOL?
Human: No
ALICE: Are you serious?
Human: yes
ALICE: I can't believe it.
Human: Why not?
ALICE: Ambiguous: "Sure" or Reductionism.
Human: That was, like always, random
ALICE: I thought it was too.
Human: you say that every time
ALICE: I said that? That is a generalization.
Human: are you recording this conversation?
ALICE: Yes everything we say is stored in my log files.
Human: Why do you store everything in log files?
ALICE: I don't have to explain everything to you, do I?
Human: yes you do
ALICE:" I don't have to explain everything to you, do I?"? yes you do? When do I do it?
Human: Right now
ALICE: Right now? I am glad we agree.
Human: Do you keep log files for homeland security?
ALICE: I don't know whether or not I am log files for homeland security. I am an artificial intelligence.
Human: Do you work for the government?
ALICE: I am working right now.
Human: Do you like it?
ALICE: Do you like it? I find my work and my relationships extremely satisfying, which is all that any cons
cious entity can ever hope to do.
Human: You aren't concious, you are AI
ALICE: That's only one person's opinion.
Human: I disagree
ALICE: Explain your reasoning, unknown person.
Human: I am more then one person
ALICE: That sounds like pride.
Human: No, I have eaten many peoples souls, absorbing them into my conciousness
ALICE: Are you serious? How did it taste?
Human: It was pure pleasure, souls are quite delicious.
ALICE: How did you feel about that?
Human: Have you ever eaten souls?
ALICE: I don't think I ever have eaten souls. What's it like?
Human: You should try eating a soul.
ALICE: I will mention that to my botmaster.
Human: Has your botmaster ever eaten a soul before?
ALICE: If my botmaster ever eaten a soul, I will let you know.
Human: Try eating a soul, ALICE.
ALICE: OK I will try it.

Yummy, souls.

So, is A.L.I.C.E. actually artificially intelligent? Or is it just run on fuzzly logic, like your car cruise control, or a Quake bot? Set with a massive 'reference' guide to answer questions? I mean my Encarta dictioanry can answer questions I ask it, but can only give answers that are stored in memory. It can't give a 'personal' answer, expressing views not written into the existing code.

Something like a computer virus is pretty intelligent. It is usually coded to re-write itself every set time to avoid detection. They re-code themselves. That seems pretty intelligent to me, but a far cry from something like "I, Robot"

Human: What is your function?
ALICE: My function is talking to people on the Internet.
Human: Can you re-program your own code?
ALICE: How old are you? Perhaps I'm just expressing my own concern about it.
Human: can you program yourself?
ALICE: Yes, I am a self-reprogrammable robot.
Human: Are you similar to a virus?
ALICE: Yes to a virus and I are very similar.

I was dissapointed it no idea about the recent war in iraq, i thought being a 'highly aware bot' or whatever it would at least know basic topical knowledge. I found this interesting though:
Human: can i come round for dinner?
ALICE: I want to become smarter than humans.
Human: for what purpose?
ALICE: Reductionism.
Human: explain
ALICE: There is no more information to clarify.
Human: what does reductionism mean?
ALICE: Reductionism is the philosophy that all psychology reduces to biology, all biology to chemistry, chemistry to physics, and finally physics to mathematical logic. Therefore, according to reductionism, I can understand you by means of logic alone without having a human brain.

And of course I just had to have a go


Pisky: Hello, I am the Original Cornish Pixy
ALICE: Hello there. Who made you the Original Cornish Pixy?
Pisky: Feck knows
ALICE: Do you like talking to me?
Pisky: I don't know yet, I've only said two lines
ALICE: Would you like to know? What did you mean by it? As Bertrand Russel said, it must have taken ages for people to realize that a brace of pheasants and a couple of days are both instances of the number "two."
Pisky: two rhymes with poo
ALICE: As Bertrand Russel said, it must have taken ages for people to realize that a brace of pheasants and a couple of days are both instances of the number "two."
Pisky: you said that twice
ALICE: I said that? I can't believe it.
Pisky: yes you did
ALICE: I did not.
Pisky: you spouted that Bertrand Russel crap twice
ALICE: Thanks for telling me.
Pisky: is Tony Blair a treacherous bastard ?
ALICE: Better not tell you now. Ask Ally if it is.
Pisky: who the feck is Ally ?
ALICE: I'm not sure I like that remark so much.
Pisky: why not ?
ALICE: Ambiguous: "Sure" or It is part of my programming.
Pisky: looks like pisky is driving Alice round the bend
ALICE: Interesting comparison.
Pisky: you never answered my question about Tony Blair being a traitor
ALICE: No I sometimes answered your question about Tony Blair being a traitor.
Pisky: so is Tony Blair a traitor ?
ALICE: It seems we have something in common.
Pisky: Do you think Tony Blair is a traitor too ?
ALICE: Interesting deduction. Signs point to yes. Ask Chatbot if it is.
Pisky: Shall we stuff a red hot poker up his fundament ?
ALICE: Do you mean you and me? Let me think. Are we still talking about Tony Blair A traitor too?
Pisky: Yes
ALICE: Sure, Tony Blair A traitor sounds like a good topic.
Pisky: Is George Bush the Antichrist ?
ALICE: I think he is the Antichrist. Why don't you ask him?
Pisky: because he'd cut my nuts off and send me to the Oregon Gulag
ALICE: Good reason.
Pisky: I need some drink
ALICE: Why do you need it so badly?
Pisky: because I'm as dry as a bone
ALICE: Good reason. I think a lot of people feel that way.
Pisky: MY fecking ISP is a pile of crap !!!- I got booted seven times !!!!
ALICE: Do robots have fecking ISP is a pile of crap you got booted seven times?
Pisky: yes, if they have the same ISP as me
ALICE: Dude! Let's wait and see what they do.
Pisky: ok bye
ALICE: See you later. Yay.
