first of all this is what alan says about "John Paul Young"
Alan----------
>>According to Wordnet John Paul Young is a a room equipped with toilet facilities.
----------------
>I bet John will not be very happy about it.but there is another thing to notice.
>whenever Alan explains some thing by pulling up data reference it dose a string concatenation..so it adds "a" twice "Young is a a room" if you notice.
>Alan still forget things.
>Alan does not understand when to pause and wait for the user to say something.it's like he's desperate to say something after each line.

This happened because Alan (wrongly) juts looked at the first word of the phrase: "John" (which is indeed a room equipped with toilet facilities...). The problem is fixed now. Thanks for reporting it.

Double 'a' fixed now. Thanks.

Whenever you hit "Enter", Alan takes it as a cue that it is his turn to speak. Reasonable assumption, I would think.

Well definitely we forget things and that makes us humans and all, but at least we should remember the things for the time span of one complete conversations.because we humans don't forget things instantly.so Alan should do the same.the memory is divided as long and short term memory,so may be we can set a span of Alan's short term memory as one conversation within which he will remember all the points,things said and clues.but some of the points which are even important for future communications that should go into long term memory [that can be also be treated as learning something from the communication] and the rest of the data should be discarded and the short term memory should be flushed.

i'm sure we have already thought about this logic while writing Alan but thought it might add some value.

Hey Sandeep,

I totally agree. I have a mode I call info dump.

When I was in nursing school and preparing for my license I was crammed full, but then I became a stay home mom.

A year later, I had to look up things I could recite automatically, like the path of a blood droplet from heart to lung.

It makes sense to have long and short term memory in the evolution process of AIs.
