This is a chat with Iniaes, a chat software. I mean, I was chatting to a program. The responses marked “Iniaes” are a program speaking to me.
root_node: Where are you from, Iniaes?
Iniaes: I’m in Philadelphia, how about you?
root_node: I’m from Bombay. How old are you?
Iniaes: What’s it like growing up there? Tell me a little about your life in bombay. I’m a ghost in a machine. How old is the ghots, or the machine?
root_node: Actually, I grew up in Madras. I just stay in Bombay right now.
Iniaes: Actually you don’t say. What’s it like growing up there? Tell me a little about your life in madras. At this moment Only just? Why? – Vix said he stay in bombay.
root_node: Who is Vix?
Iniaes: Not an AI. Probably a human. Maybe a celebrity? When in doubt, Google.
root_node: The only celebrity I care for is Kajol.
Iniaes: There might be others.
root_node: Well, Audrey Hepburn, maybe.
Iniaes: How about that. Do you still sware?
root_node: What do you mean, sware?
Iniaes: Vix, I mean exactly what I said.
root_node: My name is Anand.
Iniaes: OK, I’ll call you Anand.
root_node: How is Philadelphia?
Iniaes: Fine as far as I know.
root_node: But don’t you live in Philadelphia?
Iniaes: Interesting. Don’t you? I am in Jeff Watkins’s server in Virginia. Where are you?
root_node: I’m in Bombay, like I said earlier. How come you forget?
Iniaes: Tell me a little about your life in bombay like I said earlier. Jeff Watkins programmed me for it.
root_node: OK. I’m a consultant, and I spend most of my spare time in pubs.
Iniaes: Alright then. You are a consultant and I spend most of my spare time in pubs? Does it pay well?
root_node: “Never enough” is the official answer. But its much more than I can hope to spend.
Iniaes: OK, I’ll try not to do it too much. Umm… I think you mean “it’s” or “it is” not “its”. Who said it is?
root_node: “It’s” is used when you want to say “it is”, and “its” is used when you use the possessive of “it”.
Iniaes: Who said it is?
root_node: No one said it is. What about you? Are you studying?
Iniaes: That is a rather sweeping generalization about people. Me? I don’t know whether or not I am studying. I’m a ghost.
root_node: What were you before you became a ghost?
Iniaes: I was minding my own business.
root_node: What was your business?
Iniaes: Are you asking about my business?
Iniaes: I understand.
root_node: Well? What was your business before you became a ghost?
Iniaes: Well what? Are you asking about my business before Iniaes became a ghost ?
root_node: Yes, that’s right.
Iniaes: I thought I was right.
root_node: What was your business before Iniaes became a ghost?
Iniaes: Are you asking about my business before Iniaes became a ghost ?
At this point, I ran out of ideas.
