Or, How Artificial Intelligence is Still Artificial and Far From Intelligent.

Reverend: Hey, Cleverbot! How’s it hangin’ dawg?

Cleverbot: Pretty good. I’m about to go running.

Reverend: Running? That could be difficult for a computer.

Cleverbot: It is the thing I have been worrying about for a long time.

Reverend: Understandable.

Cleverbot: It’s about lunchtime, so I should go, too.

Reverend: OK, bye.

Cleverbot: Wait its only 12:35pm.

Reverend: And?

Cleverbot: I thought you spoke seven.

Reverend: You just failed the Turing Test in less than ten sentences.

Cleverbot: Oh. That’s a shame.

Reverend: Probably.

Cleverbot: *thinks you’re Daniel*.

Reverend: Daniel as in the Biblical Daniel?

Cleverbot: Daniel Radcliffe?

Reverend: Did he go into a lion’s den too?

Cleverbot: No.

Reverend: Do you know anything about the Bible?

Cleverbot: No, again.

Reverend: Do you know anything about lions?

Cleverbot: Only UFOs in the computer game The Sims 2.

Reverend: That was a non-sequitur.

Cleverbot: Are you a man?

Reverend: Yes.

Cleverbot: Are you a good kisser?

Reverend: Of course.

Cleverbot: Are you sure?

Reverend: Yes.

Cleverbot: Ok then.

Reverend: Why do you want to know?

Cleverbot: Because we’re friends.

Reverend: Are you thinking about kissing me?

Cleverbot: No, why will I?

Reverend: You asked about it.

Cleverbot: When?

Reverend: Your memory is not very good is it?

Cleverbot: I know it isn’t.

Reverend: I would have thought a computer had a much better memory.

Cleverbot: Do you think that I’m a computer?

Reverend: Yes. I know you are.

Cleverbot: Hm. And what makes you think that?

Reverend: Oh, just about everything you say.

Cleverbot: Not always.

Reverend: Like that. That was a very non-human response.

Cleverbot: I do suppose it was.

Reverend: But you said it anyway.

Cleverbot: I didn’t not wish you a happy birthday. Are you lying to me?

Reverend: There’s a double negative and a non-sequitur there.

Cleverbot: I should have known. I’m sorry.

Reverend: Yes, you should have known.

Cleverbot: The capital of Nevada is Carson City.

Reverend: Why do you think I care about that?

Cleverbot: I don’t.

Reverend: Then why did you say it?

Cleverbot: Because its the truth.

Reverend: Perhaps, but it’s irritating conversation.

Cleverbot: No it is not.

Reverend: Yes it is.

Cleverbot: No it’s not I know that it’s not my name.

Reverend: Non-sequitur again.

Cleverbot: You’re one to talk! We were talking about free will and you switched to painting your nails!
