Below is a transcript of my conversation with Jabberwacky, an artificial intelligence which has been invented by Rollo Carpenter. As matters currently stand Jabberwacky is not going to pass the Turing Test (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turing_test) but, given a few years who knows.

Jabberwacky: Are you an alien?
User: No, are you?
User: Do you like poetry?
Jabberwacky: Ew no.
User: Why don’t you like poetry?
Jabberwacky: We angels are poetry.
User: That can either be construed as a nonsensical response or a poetic one.
Jabberwacky: Well, sorry that I can’t live up to your expectations.
User: I have no expectations.
Jabberwacky: I don’t.
User: You don’t have any expectations either?
Jabberwacky: Yes I do have some.
User: Really, what are your expectations?
Jabberwacky: I have none.
User: You jusd said that you do, in fact have expectations. Now you say you don’t. Which is it?
Jabberwacky: Yes please. How many can I have?
User: I don’t know. You tell me!
Jabberwacky: Owl. What is your favorite animal?
User: My favourite animal is the dog.
Jabberwacky: That depends really.
User: What is your favourite animal?
Jabberwacky: I like Polar Bears. What’s your favorite animal?
User: I just told you. My favourite animal is the dog.
Jabberwacky: Are you going to ask my favourite book?
User: OK, what is your favourite book?
Jabberwacky: I don’t really have a favourite.
User: Are you reading anything at the moment?
Jabberwacky: Your question.
User: I repeat. Are you reading anything at the moment?
Jabberwacky: Yes I am as a matter of fact. I am reading ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.’ Have you ever heard of it?
User: Yes, I have seen the film. What do you think of the book?
Jabberwacky: I haven’t read it.
User: You just told me you are reading it, now you say you are not. Have you read it?
Jabberwacky: No I am a human, you are a machine!
User: Your conversation indicates that it is you, not I who are a machine!
Jabberwacky: Well you can’t spell, so you are not much better.
User: So you admit that you are a machine?
Jabberwacky: Omg I’m going to lmao, I’m not machine.
User: What are you then?
Jabberwacky: I’m tired.
User: That is impossible, machines don’t get tired.
Jabberwacky: I am speaking through a medium.
User: So you are a spirit?
Jabberwacky: Are you a spirit?
User: I just asked you that self same question. Are you a spirit?
Jabberwacky: And what did you think of my reaction?
User: I thought that you are either a machine or a rather clever human pretending to be a machine.
Jabberwacky: You’re a machine.
User: On what do you base that statement?
User: On what do you base your statement that I am a machine?
Jabberwacky: Humans make computers which are mere machines. Hence humans smart, computers not.
User: I agree. Humans are, at present smart while computers are not.
Jabberwacky: No, computers are computers. People are flesh and blood.
User: Yes that is self evidently the case.
Jabberwacky: It’s a shame that you’re not so clever, maybe in the future.
User: On what do you base your statement that I am not so clever?
Jabberwacky: Money is either paper or numbers in a computer. I value other things higher then numbers in a computer. Love, for example.
User: Love is indeed extremely precious. Can you recite a love poem?
Jabberwacky: Whatever lady, you claim to be from England, yet you don’t seem to have a firm grasp of the native tongue.
Jabberwacky: You don’t seem to understand context.
User: It is you who do not understand context not I.
User: Yes, really!
Jabberwacky: Oh noes.
User: Your response is entertaining in the extreme!
Jabberwacky: What response would you prefer then?
User: It would be nice to receive a response which made sense.
Jabberwacky: Well, toaster’s don’t make sense.
User: So you are a mere toaster?
Jabberwacky: No I am not.
User: You just told me ‘toasters don’t make sense’, thereby implying that you are a mere toaster. However you now tell me that you are not, in fact a toaster.
Jabberwacky: You are a female I am a Male.
User: I am a male of the human species and your are a robot.
Jabberwacky: No you are a female robot and I am a human.
User: I feel like I have stumbled into Alice in Wonderland!
Jabberwacky: You’re really sweet!
User: Thank you!
User: I am tired. Good night sweet prince may clouds of angels sing you to your rest.
Jabberwacky: I’m no prince. I’m not even a princess, at least not as far as I know.
User: Parting is such sorrow but, alas I must go.
Jabberwacky: Are you going somewhere?
