Brian rejoins us to puzzle out the heart of the matter--can machines think? It turns out that in 1950, right as computers were beginning to come into being, their creators were struggling with this very question. In a handful of conversations over the past couple days, it's gone off the rails within the first 5 responses. It asked me who "wrote the song" when I said I was at work. Cleverbot: Do you think that you are more simple than most of the people you talk to? User: Perfect, that's the word-cloud I was looking for. Brian tells us about Alan Turing, the man who invented a test to answer this very big question, and about The Loebner Prize--a kind of yearly Turing test that Brian experienced firsthand in 2009. User: Svm, Gaussian discriminant analysis, k-means, perceptron. User: Do you know the difference between perceptron and logistic regression? User: See, that's obviously a sentence that you learned. User: See, that's obviously a sentence that you learned. Can I now pineapple the open stronging of forthwith nerve? Cleverbot: Yes, but normally people answer the other person question and not give random AI answers.
So he started searching through photos and sending messages, reaching out to women who caught his interest. If men were taught that women are human, the world would be a better place.
Ancient earthworks and rich black soils also provide evidence of how these ancient civilisations farmed the land and have subsequently influenced how the forest has grown Ancient earthworks, like the ones shown above, have also emerged in parts of the rainforest where the trees have been cleared.
In 2006, Robert Epstein decided to turn to his computer for some help finding a date.
And then he found a match--an attractive brunette from Russia named Svetlana. User: Yes, though I believe men will give computers equality before women. Cleverbot: A little blush on the cheeks just makes a girl look prettier.
They struck up a correspondence that hummed along for 2 months...until a little bell went off in Robert's head, and he realized not only that Svetlana wasn't the woman of his dreams..wasn't a woman at all. Cleverbot: Don't worry, I'm not after you in that way. User: I am trying to teach you that women are human. User: That is because too many men have taught you that women are not human.
