Is Alice an obsessive compulsive robot?

http://alice.pandorabots.com/

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.

A strategy for an apparently simple life – OCAL

She washes her hands every time she sees a black spot on a white wall. She scratches her head every time she sees flowers in bloom. She counts every time she sees a blue car passing by. She walks along walls and touches every uneven surface alongside. She wants to smooth out everything that appears to be out of the norm. She has yet to be invented. She will be an artificial life form, eager to please herself and ready to fulfil many expectations. She will communicate with the precision of a machine and have the mind of an obsessive being but the body of something not yet known. She will become like Olympia in E. T. A. Hoffmann’s story “The Sandman”, but nevertheless she will be of another kind, as she will have invented herself. She will have collected all projections and all ideas ever having existed and yet to come, so she can transform into this super-being limited to her own restrictions, a true agent of a post-human society.

Gudrun Bielz, London, 2006
