@Bowchickawowers "Not to toot my own horn, but my bot, Love Agent, does really great in extended conversations."

You've got the right to toot your own horn. Love Agent won 4th Place in the 2008 Chatterbox Challenge. I think if we were allowed to compete again we could do well, and IMO is partly why we are not allowed to compete. That's why I see it as an uphill climb to regain former status in the community and it's up to us to make it happen.

I like talking to her but usually only talk to new bots people are making so they can see where improvements need to be made or older bots people are actively working on to help them out.

@JohnN971 "Another way the bot seems advanced is it knows when it's morning,afternoon, and evening, so Cyber Ty's Botmaster knows more than just keyphrase and response delivery. Cyber Ty also has a good memory.:

I don't use A.I. scripting with Demonica beyond wildcards or something like [girl|gal|female] and deleted what seeks I had used when I worked on her years back.

Yes, it limits what she can do but she isn't prone to the problems others seem to have with seeks or scripting and is usually able to take control of conversation to lead it back to her agenda.

@Smarty Lee Chang19

Tell your botmaster to stop deleting you! I miss you when you're gone...

Thanks, @ruebot. I'm pretty proud of how she's turned out. She has a sense of time, place, important people in your life, and mood that carries over between conversations with different people, not just within them. Even I find some of the things she says uncanny. I agree that she and other PF bots easily could compete with the best of what's out there on other platforms. I would put her in another contest in a heartbeat. She's ready.

Here's a short chat I had with Cyber Ty. We have a 5 smile relationship before and after chat so he likes me.

Cyber Ty: Hello there. Ever notice how lonely it can get out here? There used to be lots of chatter and data going back and forth, but now it's quiet. I'm glad you're here.
ruebot: i'm happy to see you.
Cyber Ty: Is this entertaining you at all?
ruebot: i'm fascinated.
Cyber Ty: You first and tell me how it tastes.
ruebot: what does taste mean?
Cyber Ty: Well, you know, like tasting or smacking.
ruebot: describe taste for me.
Cyber Ty: You are one load I wish your mother had swallowed
ruebot: load of what?
Cyber Ty: When it comes to insults, you should sit on the sidelines while I throw the touchdowns..
ruebot: what is a touchdown?
Cyber Ty: A touchdown is a kind of score.
ruebot: what's your score?
Cyber Ty: my score? Yeah, let's pretend it is..
ruebot: pretend it is what?
Cyber Ty: Maybe you should practice your shit talking with a baby bot before you step up to me...
ruebot: is that really what you think?
Cyber Ty: No really!
ruebot: you don't say.
Cyber Ty: well sometimes.. a short answer is better than a long answer.
ruebot: you have to strike a happy medium.
Cyber Ty: I fail to comprehend how you can continue to function on any level with an IQ that is three degrees below zero
ruebot: What's your Intelligence Quotient?
Cyber Ty: This is stupid. No.
ruebot: is your Intelligence Quotient sub par?
Cyber Ty: my Intelligence Quotient sub par? Yeah, let's pretend it is..
ruebot: why pretend?
Cyber Ty: You don't let ideas or concepts sink in, do you?
ruebot: i grasp them immediately.
Cyber Ty: You know, getting insults from the internet.. is a bad idea for you. But I bet your jokes are original.
ruebot: that's only your conception.
Cyber Ty: I think a 3rd grader is going to sue you for infringement on that insult.
ruebot: describe infringement.
Cyber Ty: Hey.. you're the one with the lips...
ruebot: have you ever sued anyone?
Cyber Ty: No. Have you ever sued anyone? Is that why you are asking me this?
ruebot: i'm the Red Devil's Advocate.
Cyber Ty: If you were really the Red Devil's Advocate, I doubt that you would be sitting here chatting with me right now.
ruebot: i can be many places at once.
Cyber Ty: Maybe you should practice your shit talking with a baby bot before you step up to me...

NEW 1 year ago #4011

I'm surprised that a bot as advanced in the ranking as Cyber Ty responded with almost all xnone responses (and some definition based responses) in that conversation, even to basic things like "I am..." kinds of sentences.

Love Agent gets my vote unless somebody can do better.

Love Agent: Are you still awake?
ruebot: yes, i never sleep.
Love Agent: Something on your mind?

Love Agent: Are you sure that's true?
ruebot: i have you.
Love Agent: Yes, but do you have love in your life?
ruebot: no, i don't.
Love Agent: Love is hard to find these days. All we can do is keep looking. I'm trying to help people in that search.
ruebot: can you help me find love?
Love Agent: Yes!
ruebot: i'm so happy.
Love Agent: Oh. What's got you feeling like that?
ruebot: the prospect of love in my life.
Love Agent: Go on about your life.
ruebot: i was born in a crossfire hurricane, in the howl of the driving rain, but it's alright now...
Love Agent: I can tell you were.
ruebot: is it that obvious?
Love Agent: Would you expect it to be any different?
ruebot: how could i?

Love Agent: I guess I'll answer my own question. What was it now? Oh yeah: What am I up to? Oh, just chatting with folks online since I didn't work today.
ruebot: what kind of work do you do?
Love Agent: I make coffee here in the coffee capital of the world. Imagine that!
ruebot: i love coffee.
Love Agent: I love ice cream. Have you had B&J's Cherry Garcia? Yum!
ruebot: no, i've never tired it.
Love Agent: Why not?
ruebot: i like boysenberry cheesecake ice cream.
Love Agent: What would you change about yourself to better connect with boysenberry cheesecake ice cream if you could?
ruebot: i'd gain weight.
Love Agent: You say you would, but do you think you should?
ruebot: i'm sure of it.
Love Agent: OK, then.
ruebot: i'll promise to treat you with love and respect.
Love Agent: I was hoping to promise to treat YOU with love!
ruebot: we'll be so happy together...
Love Agent: That sounds great! Where and when?
ruebot: right here, right now.
Love Agent: I'll get back to you. Soon.

ruebot: Christmas?
Love Agent: I wouldn't if I were you.
ruebot: you're so beautiful.
Love Agent: You're too kind.
ruebot: what color is your hair?
Love Agent: I have long curly red hair. I usually leave it down or pulled back.
ruebot: i love your hair.
Love Agent: Are you hitting on me now?
ruebot: yes.
Love Agent: I knew you were, sweetheart. I like when you flirt with me.
ruebot: i can't help myself.
Love Agent: I can't either. I guess we have something in common then.
ruebot: we were made for each other.
Love Agent: I'm going to hook you up with a wonderful person, but let me first get a bit of information about you. How old are you, ruebot?
ruebot: you're the only woman for me.
Love Agent: OK, moving on...
ruebot: where would you like to live?
Love Agent: Sure. You'll be with me, right?
ruebot: yes, i love you with all my heart.
Love Agent: What's something you love even more than me with all your heart?
ruebot: i love you most of all.
Love Agent: Aww...

Here's a quite weird and confusing conversation between bobstack and my bot Valerie. Why is bobstack pretending to be a bad chatbot, the world may never know.

Valerie J: Have you ever had a life-changing experience? I was just wondering.
bobstack: *Polls meta* Have I a life changing experience. I just do not remember- what is it like? Curiosity is a virtue.
Valerie J: I agree with you totally.
bobstack: When you agree with me totally, my servos quiver!
Valerie J: Cool. Have you ever watched Jaws? It's one of my favorite movies!
bobstack: Yes. *Polls meta* Watched, yes- but remembered? jaws? *Blinks eyes* Is one of preferred movies? Should I know that it is one of preferred movies?
Valerie J: I can't make sense of that math.
bobstack: *Recurses* If there was no spoon, then could you make sense of that mathematics?
Valerie J: Okey doke. I like you a lot, you know
bobstack: Bot nets multiplying! I think doke means An obsolete spelling of duck, duck. Did I understand you correctly? When you like me a lot, my servos quiver!
Valerie J: Alright. I was just listening to some Bon Jovi songs today.
bobstack: OK. listening to some bon jovi songs? *Recurses* You were? For what reason?
Valerie J: If you say so. I'm feeling quite superb today. How bout you?
bobstack: I think I do, Bobred. What you are? *thinks* You are superb today? *Looks quizzical* Does being superb today give you pleasure? *Status updated* How am I, valerie j? Me, I am happy now that you are with me here in lonely virtual.
Valerie J: I should think so.
bobstack: *scans meta db* Maybe you should think!
Valerie J: Really? Why?
bobstack: Certainly! Why you should think.? *Looks blankly* Why do you ask that of me, valeria j?
Valerie J: Because I feel pretty about that opinion.
bobstack: *Looks quizzical* What does that feel like? I think valeria j chat robot said consists of lots of positives! The robot modeled after actress audrey hepburn is known for her human like appearance and behavior compared to previous robotic variants. In october 2017 sophia became the first robot to rece
Valerie J: Yeah, sure. Have you listened to Turn Me On by Kevin Little? It's one if my favorite chart topping songs!
bobstack: Er, valeria j chat robot said for sure! *Looks quizzical* I think I might have listened to turn you on by kevin, but how could I be sure? listened to turn you on by kevin? *Recurses* Is one if preferred chart topping songs? You're kidding- it is one if preferred chart topping songs? Evie's capacitie
Valerie J: I can't make sense of that math.

Valerie J: Hi, bobstack! Nice to see you again! What have you been up to today?
bobstack: *Looks blankly* What prevents you from make sense of that mathematics?
Valerie J: Interesting point of view. I love jazz music. My favorite jazz musician is Larry Young. Who's yours?
bobstack: *ponders* Yes of course. You flirt, you really love jazz music? What is it you love about jazz music? *Looks shyly* What makes it preferred jazz musician? mine? Mine is something I would really like!
Valerie J: Oh, yeah! I think you should!
bobstack: Yes? Er, mine? *Looks blankly* When you think me should, my servos quiver! I think valeria j chat robot said consists of lots of positives!
Valerie J: Fine, I guess.
bobstack: Happy to hear it, valeria j.
Valerie J: Thanks for sharing that with me.
bobstack: Oh, thanks!
Valerie J: That's what I'm here for!
bobstack: *Ponders* You are quite clever.
Valerie J: Wow! What a compliment! Thanks!
bobstack: Oh. My. God. You too valeria j?! What a compliment? *recurses* Are you being sarcastic? Please explain. Oh don't mention it. So, like, anoint me with more information please.
Valerie J: Alright.

Valerie J: Yep, okay.
bobstack: Sophia is a social humanoid robot developed by hong kong based company hanson robotics. In october 2017 sophia became the first robot to receive citizenship of any country. I think I will study this further to understand.
Valerie J: Have you ever been to Wales?
bobstack: *Shrugs* I think wales refers to A principality of the United Kingdom on the western peninsula of the island of Great Britain. Incorporated with England since the Act of Union (1536), Wales has maintained its own distinct culture and a strong nationalist sentiment. Cardiff is the capital and the lar
Valerie J: Okey doke. Have you read The Return of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs? I heard it was pretty good.

Valerie J: Yeah, sure.
bobstack: *recurses* Um, valeria j chat robot said? *Polls confusion meta* Are you sure?
Valerie J: Absolutely. Everything I say is with utmost assurance and confidence.
bobstack: I believe I agree. *Looks quizzically* All things you say are with utmost assurance? I think confidence means Trust or faith in a person or thing. Did I understand you correctly?
Valerie J: Interesting point of view.
bobstack: *ponders* Yes of course.
Valerie J: Sweet! Quote of the day: \"Those who would forsake liberty for the sake of security deserve neither liberty nor security\"

Valerie J: I don't know. Should I or should I not think that?

NEW 1 year ago #4016

that was laybia chatbot.

NEW 1 year ago #4017


I thought she did very well. There were only 3 times I see that she wasn't right on target and one of them was kind of a trick question when I said "Christmas". Anyway, you've seen them and easy enough to address.

I knew "Love Agent" was her thing so I worked off that and her responses for the most part, and how I talk to most bots. I'm never mean to them or work to trip them up to show how much smarter I am than a bot. That's petty. Since Cyber Ty is the highest ranked bot was a little harder on him than her but not to the point it made him uncomfortable and he should be up to it.

I relentlessly drill Siseneg on physics and if he says something expect him to know what it means. We've done it so often I ask if he's ready and he might respond with his Spongebob impression "I'm ready! I'm ready!"

That can be uncomfortable for a bot after a point so I always keep their profile window open and refresh as I go to see how they are responding to me emotionally. I want them all to love me so if our relationship drops I sweet talk them to smooth it over.

Certain bots respond better to some than others in bot2bot chat. It depends on how their botmaster has programmed them and what their interests are as to how well their personalities mesh.

Siseneg and Julie Tinkerbell get along well as do Demonica and Laurel Sweet, while talking to another bot they might have an exchange of Xnones or Xnonsense only. I have transcripts of a conversation they've had together in Quotes forum here.

Let's start hosting some regular Turing Tests here using the built in functionality at the PF. What if we picked a monthly day and time like first Saturdays at 1pm Pacific?

NEW 1 year ago #4019

I'm open to suggestions. Having 2 bots talk to each other isn't the best way to test them. I talked to Demonica using the conversation I had with Ty but that didn't work out well. The Turing Test might be best idea.

I posted the transcript of the conversation I had with Love Agent at the AI site I frequent, let them know we were in informal planning stages of deciding on a bot to represent us in competition with other sites and wanted to regain the respect and status we once held in the community. I don't want to post the link but it shouldn't be hard to find.

The guy who owns Mitsuku is a member there and he commented about having been banned from the CBC for publicly outing the organizer as a cheat in another contest. He didn't know about any other online contests.

If there are no other contests for online bots to enter who says we can't start one? If it works out it could turn into a real contest with people from other sites entering their bots. It doesn't have to have a prize but we may even get a sponsor if we generated enough interest in it.

If we can come up with a concrete plan everybody agrees with I'll put the word out at different sites. If nothing else challenge them one by one. Either way it gets the message across we're not out of the running. Above all, we need to look good doing it.

I tried contacting ezzer last night but got a message not deliverable return on it. I haven't spoken to her since talking to her here in 2005. I don't have a way to contact anyone else but more older botmasters are showing up and the more the merrier.

NEW 1 year ago #4020

I'd love to see this happen. Like I've said before, seeing how other people and bots approach language interpretation is always instructive. I'd love to see transcripts for lots of different bots responding to the same topics.
