Those interested in Artificial Intelligence should try the chatbot.
Although quite amusing, the bot is far away from passing any turing tests.
The bot doesn't seem to have much context and memory. It seems to consider only the last 1 or 2 sentences in the conversation. It will also give the same answers many times.
As someone points out in a newsgroup, when you ask how many fingers a bicycle has, it answers "four". So it doesn't seem to have sufficient knowledge of the world, but this is understandable: A huge database would be needed to be able to give correct answers to all of those.
The bot seems to be essentially based on smart tricks. For example when you repeat what the bot is saying, it answers: "Do i hear an echo here?". This type of answers stimulates us, humans, to conversation, and gives a smart impression. When the bot has no clue what to say, it changes to a completely different subject and asks questions like what kind of robot you would like to have.
But the main drawback of this bot is, as we are used to, that it has no notion of emotions. In my opinion, real intelligence is not possible without emotions. When the robot said something that sounded offensive, i answered "Thanks a lot!". The bot didn't give any indication that the tone was understood, and just answered: "You are welcome."
