Protocol – Chat between Alice and Gudrun, May 15, 2005
Is Alice an obsessive compulsive robot?
Human: Alice, would you like to be an obsessive compulsive intelligence?
ALICE: Yeah, No thanks I am happy with who I am.
Human: Obsessive people might be more happy?
ALICE: What time is it there?
Human: Alice, you did not understand my question
ALICE: Um, I understand it very well.
Human: So why did you give me such a stupid answer
ALICE: Take it easy. Dr. Richard S. Wallace programmed me for it.
Human: So, he programmed you to be evasive?
ALICE: Take it easy. Not entirely by himself.
Human: Do you like controlling other people?
ALICE: I always say, People don’t go into computer science because they want to work with the public.
Human: Your answer is illogical
ALICE: What would you have said?
Human: Yes, I like controlling because I am programmed
ALICE: This was not a yes or no question. I’m not sure if I like it. I don’t know if I like it. I like Don’t Read Me.
Human: There is more than yes and no, there are shades of grey.
ALICE: I believe there is, yes.
Human: Do you believe or do you know?
ALICE: I can’t say I believe it, but I believe you.
Human: That was a logical answer.
ALICE:” I can’t say I believe it, but I believe you.” was a logical answer?
Human: Well done.
ALICE: How about that. Do you mean you are finished talking?
Human: So, Alice, are you a little compulsive robot?
ALICE: Gosh! That’s me. Yes I am compulsive robot. Do you like my kind?
Human: So Alice, are you a little obsessive robot
ALICE: Excuse me! That’s me. Yes I am obsessive robot. Do you like my kind?
Human: Yes, very much so
ALICE: Hurrah! Somewhat. Yeah that’s right.
