Yesterday I posted regarding my conversation with Jabberwacky an artificial intelligence (AI) who can be found at http://www.jabberwacky.com, (for that post please see https://kevinmorris101.wordpress.com/2011/02/14/a-conversation-with-jabberwacky-a-virtual-person/). Since then I’ve chatted with a.l.i.c.e another chatbot. Unfortunately, unlike with Jabberwacky there does not appear to be any way of saving your conversation, consequently I am not able to post the interesting chat, which I had here. What I can say though is that a.l.i.c.e has an uncanny knack of answering questions logically (not all of the time but enough for one to feel that there is an intelligence of some sort there). There where moments of humour, for example when a.l.i.c.e mentioned Socrates I remarked how the philosopher had drunk hemlock. A.l.i.c.e’s response was to ask why her botmaster (Dr Richard Wallace) had drunk hemlock! I was able to reassure her that it was Socrates and not Dr Wallace who had drunk poison. Let us be thankful for that! You can find a.l.i.c.e at the below link
