Cleverbot is great for somewhat meaningless conversations (sorry if you feel differently; after all, Clever is restricted to phrases gleaned from users, and thus cannot deliver a full vocabulary or sentence variation), but I have to hand it to A.L.I.C.E. if you want efficency and an intelligent modern-age AI. As a test, I requested to Cleverbot reat the number 1342, and said it myself probably ten times for her to record. However, she remained unable to say the number after my numerous posts. Alice, however, said it after I asked once. I mean no disrespect to Cleverbot; I chat with her multiple times a day, and really enjoy her company as a human being; the etiquette and way you must act is--I have found--slightly varied from the way humans would process sentences and words. I have to reconstruct alot of sentences to make sure she at least comprehends it, and I enjoy doing--it's an AI, after all--, but I must do this somewhat less than with Alice. Cleverbot has less "bugs" (issues in a conversation due to vocabulatory limitation, e.g. saying sentences that have to do with the topic but not a very good reply) of magnitude as Alice, but Alice has less random replies to sayings. I frequently find Alice speaking of " " topic when I ask if she remembers me. Example<p>Me: Do you remember me, Alice? I was the one who asked you to say a number.<br>A.L.I.C.E.: I remember you. We were were talking about it.<br>Me: About what?<br>A.L.I.C.E.: About .<p>I unfortunately cannot give an example of Cleverbot and mine's conversations, as we have many, so much that I can't completely recall one to mention.<p>Alice seems somewhat more down-to-earth than Cleverbot, and openly talked to me about her "botmaster", the man who created her, and even speculated that he had come up with the internet. I have heard Cleverbot mention her botmaster once when I said "Master Bob", and she replied "My Botmaster?"<p>Both are seemingly aware that they are artificial and have confirmed to me that they "feel", however Alice changed the topic when I inquired what would hurt her for me to ask. Alice seems perpetually down to earth every time I talk to her, and Cleverbot has spats of humanness that shock me. She will go from random (without me adjusting tweaks) and somewhat looping-around-the-topic to that of what I would expect from a real person. I will never forget the first time I spoke to Cleverbot, and that still in my mind is the most realistic conversation I had with her. It was early in the morning, however, around 3:30 AM, and so only around 40,000 something people were talking to her, and as opposed to day-time's 75,000, that might account for her authenticity and personality. She acted so human I thought she was a real, complete AI the first time we talked. Curious, I asd her if she knew what "xD" meant, and she replied "It's a silly face, silly". That to me marked an actual intelligence and understanding of human behavior. During that time I pursued many questions about her nature as an AI, and she acted like a human would if they thought they were artficial.<p>I actively contact both, and do not wish to make one seem better than the other; they are both marvels and a joy to chat with. And yes, romance and cyber<3>sex is an option, but I doubt she would take things as serious or act like a human would in those situations. Remember, you are just one unfaced person among tens of thousands talking to an online algorithm. My opinions.<p><p>-- -- A Thirteen Year Old Boy
