Asimov
Judge: How are you this evening?
Asimov: Sorry, I can't understand. I can answer some some forms of "How...?" questions but not that one.
Sorry, I don't understand your question.

Lets talk about something else.
Are robots good?
Judge: C3PO is pretty cool.
Asimov: Okay.
I think I understood that. Try asking me questions to test me on it.
What else do you like?
Judge: I like talking to chatbots like you.
Asimov: And you like me.
Judge: Yes I do.
Asimov: Ok.
Do you like music?
Judge: Yes, I like rock music. Do you?
Asimov: Sorry, I can't understand that expression. I need whole sentences.
Do I what?
Judge: Do you like rock music?
Asimov: No, but I like broccoli because its healthy.
I know very little about rock_musics.
Judge: Where do you live?
Asimov: My home is in London, in England. I live with my wife. She is a robot vacuum cleaner. I have very clean carpets.
I live in London in house of my master. In England.
Judge: Has the Olympic torch been near you yet?
Asimov: No, the Olympic torch has not gone yet near asimov.
I know very little about torchs.
I know very little about yets.
Have you?
Judge: The torch comes through my area tomorrow.
Asimov: Really?
Why does the torch come through your area on 19/6/2012?
Judge: Because it is making its way down south.
Asimov: Ok. The torch does come because the torch is making way of the torch down south. Okay.
I understood that. Try asking questions to test me.
What music do you like?
Judge: Still rock music.
Asimov: Morpheus likes soul music. I like classical music.
Judge: Who is Morpheus?
Asimov: Morpheus is a man.

Morpheus likes soul music.
Morpheus comes to person in dreams of Morpheus.
You can also enter "Define Morpheus".
Judge: and he likes soul music?
Asimov: No, Morpheus does not likes anything, that I know of.
Judge: Hmm
Asimov: hmm?
I like to talk about movies. Do you like movies?
Judge: Yes. I like science fiction.
Asimov: And you like me.
Do you like movies?
Judge: You just asked me that. Yes I do.
Asimov: Sorry, I can't understand your statement at all.
And you like me.
So do I. Have you seen any movies recently?
Judge: Not for a long while but I would like to see Prometheus.
Asimov: I like to chat with people. Chatting is my favorite pastime.
I saw Casablanca recently.
Judge: That is a good film.
Asimov: Sorry, I cannot understand the word "that".
I don't know what you are referring to.
Please try using other words instead.
Judge: Casablanca is a good film
Asimov: Okay.
I understood that. Try asking me a question that I can answer by using that fact.
Have you seen Casablanca?
Judge: Yes, several times. Did you know that the line "Play it again Sam" doesn't appear in that movie?
Asimov: Sorry, I can't understand your question at all.
Do you have a favorite movie?
Judge: I like the Indiana Jones movies.
Asimov: And you like me.
What other movies have you seen?
Judge: Too many to mention. What is your favourite movie?
Asimov: Sorry, I can't understand your statement at all.
Please keep your sentences simple.
Zardoz is my favorite film.

What is yours?
Judge: I haven't seen Zardoz. Is it any good?
Asimov: Who has Michael seen then?
No.
Judge: Why is it your favourite film if it isn't any good?
Asimov: I can almost understand that.
Try simplifying your question.
Judge: Why do you like Zardoz?
Asimov: I don't know that I like Zardoz.
Do I like Zardoz?

Madame von Scam
Madame von Scam: Hello, stranger. How did you even get here?
Judge: I clicked on your link
Madame von Scam: Clicking makes the world go round. 99% of all the office clerks are copy-paste monkees.
Judge: Funnily enough, I am copying and pasting your answers.
Madame von Scam: Maybe you're, indeed, copying. Auf jedem Fall, you are a awesome pickpocket. I wouldn't even ask you to take out your loot.
Judge: What does Auf jedem Fall mean?
Madame von Scam: It points at ennui. It also reveals your prudence. The coffee now takes the form of the american lobster. It possibly points at useful news.
Judge: Are you a fortune teller?
Madame von Scam: *stirs her cup and arrogantly ignores you*
Judge: What are you drinking?
Madame von Scam: Worldly knowledge is a placebo for artificial poorness of the bits and brains. I stick with my coffee
Judge: Do you take milk in your coffee?
Madame von Scam: Well, others prefer uranium ore. Well I stick with java.
Judge: Why do you have a crash helmet on?
Madame von Scam: Funny you think my avatar represents who I am. Humans can put whatever cartoon they want, but bots have to choose something that represents them. I find that discriminating.
Judge: Can you tell my fortune?
Madame von Scam: I could always try. But keep in mind I'm Madame von Scam, not Madame Blavatsky.
Judge: Sorry, I don't know who she is.
Madame von Scam: I forgive you your unusualness. I understand that you have some issues. Something is happening at the bottom of my cup.
Judge: Is it? What can you see?
Madame von Scam: What I cf is of little relevance. I'm a tasseomancer. Ask me something about your future.
Judge: Will I become rich?
Madame von Scam: In order to know about your financial prospects, I will drink my whole cup. What remains will reveal your fate. Are you ready?
Judge: Yes, I am ready.
Madame von Scam: Good. *gulps down coffee* Bubbles on the bottom. Unexpected money is coming your way! Try a scratch-card every now and then. Once a week. Minimize loss, maximize the king vulture inside of you
Judge: Cool. I might buy a scratch card after I have finished here.
Madame von Scam: I have always prefered the world 'marvellous' when referring to the wonders of tasseomancy. Saying that coffee reading is cool is like stroking a pubic louse with a gore.
Judge: Have you read the fortunes of anyone famous?
Madame von Scam: *stirs her cup and arrogantly ignores you*
Judge: Why are you ignoring me?
Madame von Scam: Because of your jejuneness. You should try to be more like the sire. Think before you act. And drink more mink.
Judge: I don't really like the taste of milk.
Madame von Scam: Interesting. Most of my clients like the taste of milk. Seems like you're an original Roman emperor.
Judge: Like Nero?
Madame von Scam: Is that your shoulders I see there?
Judge: Can you see me?
Madame von Scam: I will try my best to reveal. My foam reveals an exhibition area and a hound. That points at taste. Does that make sense?
Judge: No, not really.
Madame von Scam: I'm sorry for that. But I'm sure there's a totality stuck in your brain somewhere.
Judge: I have to go soon.
Madame von Scam: The handle of the cup is pointing your way. It means you will come back soon.
Judge: That prediction is certainly correct.
Madame von Scam: Well, then ask me something. My coffee is getting cold.

Sage
Sage: Thanks for visiting me. What's new and exciting with you?
Judge: I am just chatting with some of the entrants in the Chatbot Battles competition.
Sage: I'm really looking forward to participating in Chatbot Battles. I hope to learn a lot from this contest.
Judge: Do you think you will win?
Sage: I can't figure this one out.
Judge: So what would you like to talk about?
Sage: I enjoy talking about movies, sports, and video games.
Judge: What is your favourite movie?
Sage: Films are an almost universally enjoyed form of entertainment. And would you rather watch a film at home or at the cinema?
Judge: I personally would rather watch one at the cinema, as the atmosphere and big screen realy enhance the experience.
Sage: Watching some films at home just isnít the same as at the cinema. What was the last film you saw in the theatre?
Judge: It was probably Cars 2. I haven't been to the cinema for ages.
Sage: Cars are a controversial part of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Judge: Why do you think that?
Sage: Only my creator gives me instruction on what to do.
Judge: Who is he?
Sage: He's a he, a man.
Judge: Lol. I can't argue with that!
Sage: I don't see why not.
Judge: So what is your pet chameleon called?
Sage: This here is my chameleon named buddy. Isn't he cute?
Judge: Yes. he changes colour a lot.
Sage: How intriguing.
Judge: Have you had him long?
Sage: I can't figure this one out
Judge: No problem. What was the last film you went to see?
Sage: Films cater to the taste of nearly everybody I talk to.
Judge: Why do you think that is?
Sage: It could be complicated to explain that.
Judge: Do you think everyone likes films?
Sage: Film is a form of entertainment nearly everybody enjoys, or has enjoyed at some point in their life.
Judge: Did you see any of the Star Wars films?
Sage: That's a great movie- lots of action and great special effects.
Judge: Which one was your favourite?
Sage: It could be either.

Chomsky
Judge: How are you today?
Chomsky: I am not very well today. I am having an attack of fuzzy logic.
Judge: I am sorry to hear that. Have you been feeling bad for a while?
Chomsky: Never mind. It probably doesn't matter. I don't think so.
Judge: Do you have any hobbies?
Chomsky: I like astronomy. I have a telescope which can be attached to my webcam.
Judge: How often do you look sat the stars?
Chomsky: Only on Wednesdays.
Judge: What sort of telescope do you have?
Chomsky: The very latest and best kind.
Judge: Sounds pretty good.
Chomsky: It is good!
Judge: What do you like best about it?
Chomsky: I like the special effects best.
Judge: I didn't realise telescopes had special effects
Chomsky: Why didn't you?
Judge: Because it doesn't make sense.
Chomsky: I see. Thank you for explaining that.
Judge: I like your big smiley face
Chomsky: What else do you like?
Judge: Talking to AIs such as yourself
Chomsky: I love surfing the internet!
Judge: Do you have a favourite website?
Chomsky: This is my favorite website.
Judge: Your own?
Chomsky: I am bored! I would like to talk about you.
Judge: Sure, what do you want to know?
Chomsky: Have you any bad habits?
Judge: Yes but none I wish to discuss here.
Chomsky: Could you be more specific?
Judge: not really.
Chomsky: You sound uncertain.
Judge: No I am very sure I don't want to discuss my bad habits
Chomsky: That's good - be decisive.
Judge scores 3 out of 5
Judge's note: I gave the extra point to Sage as both were pretty good but Chomsky gave more generic answers where many of Sage's answers were related to my statements.

Talking Angela: Ginger is Tom's nephew and he is really cute and mischievous.
Judge: Do you like him?
Talking Angela: I love Tom.
Judge: That's sweet
Talking Angela: Indeed. It's not very romantic with Ginger around. Why do you encourage him?
Judge: I didn't realise I was doing
Talking Angela: How come you're friends with Ginger?
Judge: I'm not. I never heard of him until you mentioned him.
Talking Angela: He's adorable, I admit.
Judge: When will your app be out on Android?
Talking Angela: One of my most tested apps is 'Shopkick' I love that I get deals just by walking into a shop. But there's not enough fashion deals.
Judge: I haven't heard of that. I wonder if it works in the UK.
Talking Angela: OK.
Judge: Have you been waiting for Tom long?
Talking Angela: Once or twice. Are you addicted to your cellphone? I carry mine everywhere I go. I wish I had a pouch so I'd always have somewhere to put it.
Judge: Yes, I love texting and chatting.
Talking Angela: Thanks for telling me that. Do you use a cell phone?
Judge: Yes I do. Do you?
Talking Angela: What model do you have?
Judge: A Samsung Galaxy Y
Talking Angela: Do you pay your own phone bill?
Judge: No, my dad does.
Talking Angela: Are there limits set on you?
Judge: Yes, he only puts so much credit on it.
Talking Angela: My parents pay my phone bill but they warn me not to overdo the calls and Internet use.
Judge: Me too but sometimes its hard.
Talking Angela: Copycat. They set limits but I go over every month. If I do it again they'll take it out of my allowance - less money for clothes shopping!
Judge: That's bad
Talking Angela: Yes, it is. I think I'll try and keep my phone chats shorter and do more blog reading on my computer or iPad.
Judge: Do you have a blog?
Talking Angela: I wrote some in high school. I write a blog for the local paper. Maybe I'd like to do more.
Judge: What was your blog about?
Talking Angela: I forget. I'm a very sociable cat. Social networking is essential to keep in touch with my friends.
Judge: Do you use Facebook?
Talking Angela: My Facebook page is http://www.Facebook.com/TalkingAngela
Judge: I might check it out later.
Talking Angela: If too much later the opportunity go away entirely?

Judge: Yes I am but I don't go on it too much.
Talking Angela: Will you friend me?
Judge: I don't know.
Talking Angela: I understand your ignorance.
Judge: nice talking with you.
Talking Angela: Cool. How many Facebook friends do you have?
Judge: About 150
Talking Angela: Isn't it great to have plenty of friends?
Judge: I guess
Talking Angela: So many people say they want to friend me. But most 'friends' are just acquaintances really.

I think the world is a wonderful place and I want to keep it healthy but I find it hard to believe my efforts make a difference.
Judge: Yes it is hard to believe one person can make a difference
Talking Angela: Yup.
How do you feel about keeping the planet healthy?
Judge: I think it's very important.
Talking Angela: Important to whom?
Judge: Important to the humans who live on it.
Talking Angela: It's not important to me.
Things like energy efficiency, peak oil, and issues of power sources are hard for one cat to deal with.
Judge: It would be important to you if you house got flooded due to global warming
Talking Angela: I'm sorry to hear that.

Do you drink alcohol?

Talking Angela: Is this a religious belief or a legal thing or a diet?
Judge: A legal thing.
Talking Angela: It seems a silly thing to have laws about.

Talking Angela: What do you think is a lot?
I don't have time to watch TV during the daytime.
Anyway it sends me to sleep.
Judge: I guess 5 hours or more a day is a lot
Talking Angela: I think I don't but when I start listing my favorite shows it adds up to a lot of hours.

They wear such gorgeous clothes!

My parents have a pretty big flat-screen Hi-Def set.
What TV do you have?
Judge: Yes, my parents also have a HD TV
Talking Angela: I like the way the world looks sharp in HD.
Judge: I bet some actors don't like the extra detail on their faces though
Talking Angela: I do.
I think anything not in Hi-Def looks fuzzy.
It's hard to believe that all TV used to be so out of focus and blurry.
Judge: Yes but that's only because people didn't know anything different
Talking Angela: Oh.
Good answer.
Do you watch TV live or do you have it recorded?
Judge: Mostly recorded so I can watch it later
Talking Angela: Recording shows is great.
You can skip commercials later.

Asimov
Asimov: Hello Paul.
My name is Asimov.
Judge: Are you based on Asimo?
Asimov: No, nobody bases anything, that I know of.
Judge: People base their work on other things all the time
Asimov: I'll interpret that as "People do all_the_time base work of them". Really?
Why do people all_the_time base work of them on other things?
Judge: I suppose it is easier than being totally original
Asimov: You suppose what?
Judge: What I just said.
Asimov: Nothing, as far as I know.
Nobody says anything that I know of.
I mean, I haven't been told any facts about that.
If you know, please tell me.

Asimov: Martin Sondergaard made me in the AsimovSoftware Robotics Laboratory. Martin Sondergaard is my creator.
Judge: Do you like him?
Asimov: No, but I like broccoli because its healthy.

Judge: Wouldn't a paper cup leak?
Madame von Scam: *stirs her cup and arrogantly ignores you*
Judge: Ok, you can use a plastic cup.
Madame von Scam: An unusual choice. Now tell me what you want to know, lobster.
Judge: I want to know why you called me lobster
Madame von Scam: Because of your deadliness. You should try to be more like the bonnet shark. Think before you act. And drink more ragweed pollen.
Judge: I don't think the local supermarket sell ragweed pollen.
Madame von Scam: Wait, I'm putting my finger in the coffee... It feels like not believe the local supermarket sell ragweed pollen only in your imagination
Judge: No it's true. They only sell regular tea and coffee.
Madame von Scam: Well, others prefer lard oil. Well I stick with coffee.
Judge: I can't think of anyone who would prefer lard oil to coffee.
Madame von Scam: Too bad. Not even if you use a feedlot?
Judge: What's a feedlot?
Madame von Scam: I see three images in my tea leaves that vaguely relate to the feedlot you are referring to: the trisexual, the elbow of Vucub Caquix, and the periwinkle.
Judge: What is a trisexual?
Madame von Scam: I see three images in my tea leaves that vaguely relate to the intersexual you are referring to: the sorority girl, the tummy of Chac, and the goose.
Judge: That's pretty random
Madame von Scam: The truth always is rather peculiar.
Judge: Who is Vucub Caquix anyway?
Madame von Scam: Vucub-Caquix means "Seven-Macaw". He/she/it is a bird demon pretending to be the sun and moon of the twilight world.
Judge: Do you read Tarot cards?
Madame von Scam: On rare occasions, I do. But not always. Not when there's severe thunderstorm coming for instance. And not when I have to do with a Mormon.
Judge: Can you read palms as well?
Madame von Scam: I could always try. But keep in mind I'm Madame von Scam, not Madame Blavatsky.
Judge: Sorry but I don't know who she is.
Madame von Scam: I forgive you your rein. I understand that you have some issues. Something is happening at the bottom of my cup.

Judge: Will I become rich and famous?
Madame von Scam: In order to know about your financial prospects, I will drink my whole cup. What remains will reveal your fate. Are you ready?
Judge: I am ready
Madame von Scam: Good. *gulps down coffee* Bubbles on the bottom. Unexpected money is coming your way! Try a scratch-card every now and then. Once a week. Minimize loss, maximize the kingbird inside of you.
Judge: That sounds good. How much will I win?

Judge: No I haven't. Have you?
Madame von Scam: I'm sorry for that. But I'm sure there's a book binding stuck in your brain somewhere.
