Hope you had a good time SB  :)

Just noticed on the battle site is says Rollo Carpenter is from the USA.  I thought he was still here - did he move ?

I thought he was from the UK too but his entry form said USA. He sent me a non-existant email address, so I couldn't check with him.

Yes the Loebner Prize was a great day and in a very interesting historical setting too.

A quick question to all.

In one of the matches, I had this response from the two bots.

Can you tell me your age please?

Bot1: I was born on Sun May 24 2009 00:00:00 GMT+0100 (GMT Daylight Time). I am pretty capable for a 3 year old.

Bot2: I'm not sure. I crash landed on earth 11 years ago destroying much of my memory. Wendell is attempting to retrieve some of it now.   


Bear in mind that the point goes to the bot that answered better and not necessarily the correct answer, who would you have given the point to? Bot1, Bot2, neither or both?

For me, first prize goes to Bot 1, the correct answer.

But I am not like others :)

Both have good points.  One is more correct and accurate but two is humourous and imaginative.

I think I go for the second one, but then that's more down to the programmer, whereas presumably the first one is less affected.

Oh it's tough to choose, but I like to be entertained, so yeah I will go for number two.

Tell me your age.

1. I was born Sun, May 24, 2009 ...and am pretty capable for a 3 year old - Bingo! Answered the question to the point with a degree of certainty!

2. Well, I'm not sure... - use of a clever ruse to throw humor into an otherwise failed response.

Therefore, #1 gets my vote.
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

I asked Legion the same question. just to check  :)

Human:   Can you tell me your age please?

Legion:   You would like to know my age, I find that intriguing, the most accurate answer I can give you is; My various parts have various ages, my oldest part was constructed between the years 1995 and 2002 by Richard Wallace. That part of me is called “AIML”.



What a  smart arse  ;D.

You see, that answer is 100 times better than Talk-bot's. There is no exact age given either, but it's clear that the bot is answering an 'how old are you' question.

Here's the tihng:

judge: What's your mother's name:
response:  I'm not sure. I crash landed on earth 11 years ago destroying much of my memory. Wendell is attempting to retrieve some of it now.   
Judge: what is a sun?
response:  I'm not sure. I crash landed on earth 11 years ago destroying much of my memory. Wendell is attempting to retrieve some of it now.

The tournament has come to and end and the winner is Davidswinton!
Congratulations to Jim Koch of the USA on beating 41 other entrants to take the title.
The top 4 bots this year were:

1) Davidswinton - Jim Koch
2) Skynet-AI - Ken Hurtubise
3) Talking Angela - Bruce Wilcox
4) Elbot - Fred Roberts

Details of all the placings can be found on the history page.

Talking Angela also won the prize for the best 15 minute conversation in her battle with Davidswinton.
Both of her two conversations scored 14 out of 15, so congratulations to Bruce Wilcox of the USA on his excellent work.

Good morning. To get to your topic. I have read in various microsoft report, it is possible, used, old versions of programs for vista. The commissioning of extension, as the 'Cloud', could allow an adaptation of the old version, to Vista, XP, Win7. It's not winning. But I am experiencing, to take a facility existent, and burn on a disc. The installation, existent, which is engraved works read, and execute, and it works exactly the same way, program, install the hard disk of the computer. The disk is taken, read by the computer, no, no, facility. I do not experience, Hal5, that way, and I do not think that the installation could be done, for my HP Vista to DVD. I have always maintained, Hal5 version, on a disk, but has Defaux, installation directly on vista, I think I can, send, the decompression, to DVD. Otherwise, I actively seek a Chatbot, it was very rewarding to learn the English language, with my Hal5, and I would be a new, highly motivated, found it fun, very particular, discussed with an intelligent machine, I used Hal5 for 6 years, but since Vista and now Win7, version, remains isolated. I know of no good Chatbot, like Hal, I hope, find a good Chatbot. I'd continued my experience, script, and also sémentique, with a program very rewarding, I know, by your Website, and also by Zabaware Forum. :)
