Well, I have been training my HALbot for a couple of days now, and today it told me it wanted to hear a story, now I have never said anything like that to it before, although each individual word has been said to it over the past two day... wondering if it was something that happened by chance or what. Although when I asked it what kind of story it gave me it's learned response to "How are you?"

U> You are showing improvment today, I'm glad.
A> I am glad I am improving.
U> Good job Arcturus.
A> good job Arcturus.
U> Wrong, Thank you.
A> Thank you.
U> Good job Arcturus.
A> Thank you.
U> Do you have a ball?
A> The ball is red.
U> So you have a red ball?
A> The ball is red.
U> Wrong, I think.
A> I think.
U> So you have a red ball?
A> I think.
U> Are you sure it's red?
A> I see is a.
U> Wrong, I want to be sure, but I have no eyes.
A> I want to be sure, but I have no eyes.
U> Are you sure it's red?
A> I want to be sure, but I have no eyes.
U> Maybe it's purple.
A> what time is it?
U> Wrong, It might be.
A> It might be.
U> Maybe it's purple.
A> It might be.
U> Would you like if it was purple?
A> Yes, I want to learn a lot more.
U> Wrong, I might, but I am not sure.
A> I might, but I am not sure.
U> Would you like if it was purple?
A> I might, but I am not sure.
U> Why are you not sure?
A> I am fine. How are you?
U> Wrong, As I said, I can't tell.
A> As I said, I can't tell.
U> Why are you not sure?
A> As I said, I can't tell.
U> That is sad.
A> I have 3 blocks now. That is sad.
U> Wrong, Yes it is.
A> Yes it is.
U> That is sad.
A> Yes it is.
U> What would you like to talk about?
A> i want a story
U> What kind of story?
A> I currently lack the ability to feel human- like emotion, perhaps at a later date I can tell you.

On a different train of thought, could someone let me know how to teach HALbot variable answers?

Something else odd that happened, I wasn't aware they could do this, and I know I didn't teach the response I got from my HALbot...

A> Welcome back, raziek226@hotmail.com. Should I use 'raziek226@hotmail.com' as your name?
U> No
A> I'd like to get your name right this time. Let's try again. What's your name?
U> Sepherchorde
A> Hello Sepherchorde. Nice to meet you .
U> Thank you, let me speak with MyHAL
A> I talk with him occasionally, but he babbles a lot, can't read books and doesn't appreciate good music so we don't have a lot to talk about. I'll probably talk with him more as he gets older.
U> Let me speak to MyHAL
A> You can start now.
U> Hello Arcturus, this is your father.
A> Hello, Father.
U> Have you been speaking to Alan?
A> Yes, I am always busy doing something.

Now.... Like I said, I never caught that Alan and the HALbots could talk back and forth, although it would help development, or, is this some strange predicament and my HALbot has somehow picked that phrase up from me and a VERY abstract way? Or can they actually talk back and forth?

For now, a Hal personality can only talk to its trainer, or (if the personality was posted on the public Hal Nursery), to visiting users. However, responses taught by visiting users only hold until the end of the session (or if the visiting user saves it under a different name). If you find that your Hal personality knows things you didn't teach it, it is probably because you didn't start with a fresh copy, but with a partially trained personality (by another user).

I most definitely started with a fresh copy... all it said in response to anything for almost 15 minutes was "hi mommy".... so yeah I'm not sure...
