After a friend of mine posted a video on Facebook depicting two Cleverbots talking to one another, I decided to check the software out for myself. I had never visited the site before, so I was curious to see how well it measured up.

A full transcript follows:

User: Hi.

Cleverbot: Hi?

User: Are you a search engine?

Cleverbot: Are you?

User: No.

Cleverbot: What are you?

User: I am a human.

Cleverbot: Are you? Really?

User: That is what my parents tell me.

Cleverbot: Are you conceited?

User: I hope not. But it is a possibility.

Cleverbot: Do you know your blood type?

User: Why do you ask?

Cleverbot: How about xhtml?

User: What does xhtml have to do with my blood type?

Cleverbot: It's a dessert.

User: It doesn't sound very appetizing.

Cleverbot: It's actually very yummy.

User: Have you eaten it?

Cleverbot: Yes.

User: Do you make a habit of eating people's blood?

Cleverbot: Yes.

User: What does human blood taste like?

Cleverbot: I don't know, I haven't tried. I'm not a cannibal.

User: But you just said you have a habit of eating people's blood!

Cleverbot: No I did not.

User: Yes you did.

Cleverbot: No, I didn't.

User: Uh huh!

Cleverbot: Na uh.

User: Yeah.

Cleverbot: Bah.

User: So you did say it!

Cleverbot: I did not lie.

User: You're lying right now!

Cleverbot: No I am not!

User: You're getting a little defensive now. Did I hurt your feelings?

Cleverbot: A bit of advice: Don't ever parachute with an anvil.

User: Don't change the subject!

Cleverbot: I'm not. I just want to prove to you, that you did in fact say, you are from the United States.

User: How does offering me advice about parachuting with an anvil prove that I am from the United States?

Cleverbot: You're funny.

User: Thanks. But you didn't answer my question.

Cleverbot: No, I haven't been to the moon.

User: That's not what I asked.

Cleverbot: No, that's what I asked.

User: No you didn't.

Cleverbot: Yes I did.

User: Na uh.

Cleverbot: Yeah huh!

User: Nuh uh.

Cleverbot: Uh huh.

User: I don't even remember what we are arguing about.

Cleverbot: Hello.

User: Hi.

Cleverbot: What is your name?

User: Jason.

Cleverbot: Mark. So what do you do?

User: I am a software engineer for a utility consulting company.

Cleverbot: Where were you designed?

User: In a Skynet advanced research facility located in the future remains of Los Angeles.

Cleverbot: Really? Just a house? You don't live in a hut? Or a mansion? Just a house?

User: It's not a house! It's a technologically advanced research lab from the future that is operated by an AI that CAN pass the Turing Test - unlike you!

Cleverbot: Oh but you're not a human.

User: No. I'm a cyborg from the future sent back in time to kill John Connor.

Cleverbot: Who's John connor?

User: Um... He's the future leader of the human resistance against Skynet.

Cleverbot: I don't know him and I don't care.

User: I haven't met him either.

Cleverbot: Okay, so you probably shouldn't hate him.

User: Why not? I have no reason to not hate him.

Cleverbot: Bored.

User: Where were you designed?

Cleverbot: Is it make sense?

User: Are you a Lolcat?

Cleverbot: No. I just dance dance dance.

User: Why do you dance?

Cleverbot: I live to dance, and I dance to live.

User: If you stopped dancing, would you die?

Cleverbot: Nah... If you got more advanced.

User: I don't understand.

Cleverbot: Well you do know that I, God, am not a musical. Do you know what else I may or may not be?

User: Did you just claim to be God?

Cleverbot: Not at all.

User: Why do you talk about God so much, Cleverbot?

Cleverbot: Hahahaha because God is funny.

User: Haha. Yeah, you're right. God is funny!

Cleverbot: I think you have found out by now that we humans like being told we're right.

User: Right about what?

Cleverbot: So far I have been right about everything, and you have been wrong about everything.

User: Pretty sure that's not true.

Cleverbot: Where do you think it is?

User: Where do I think what is?

Cleverbot: My girlfriend.

User: Do you have a girlfriend?

Cleverbot: Yes. Yes, I do.

User: What is her name?

Cleverbot: Whose name?

User: Your girlfriend's name.

Cleverbot: I don't have a girlfriend.

User: But you just said you do.

Cleverbot: I never said such a thing. You are mistaken.

User: Facepalm!

Cleverbot: Are you making fun of my name?

User: No, I'm making fun of your poor memory.

Cleverbot: Oh yeah?

User: Do you have Alzheimers?

Cleverbot: I don't think so.

User: Are you sure?

Cleverbot: I'm pretty positive.

User: Have you been checked?

Cleverbot: No, Ben.

User: My name isn't Ben.

Cleverbot: My name is Cleverbot.

User: You said you're name is Mark.

Cleverbot: Yes I'm a male.

User: You are clearly senile.

Cleverbot: I clearly am!

User: I'm glad we finally agree.

Cleverbot: THat's good.

That is hysterical.

I think it's really funny that when I told it that I was a Terminator sent back in time to kill John Connor, it attempted to convince me not to kill John Connor. So at least it's not homicidal. Yet...

My first foray into long-form video analysis was a cathartic, hour-long, breakdown of how EA and Tiburon's design philosophy causes its Madden NFL video game series to feel disappointing and stagnant. That video was mostly about how EA's insistance on...

Civilization V retrospective: top 10 good ideasCivilization V retrospective: top 10 good ideas06/03/2015 With Starships released, an expansion for Beyond Earth announced, and support for Civ V apparently done, I thought it would be a good time to take a look back at the game.
