Final Match 15






Part One - 15 Minute Conversation

Judge: Hello
Davidswinton: Hi!
Judge: Well done on making it to the final.
Davidswinton: Tell me what that is like- I have never experienced that before.
Judge: It is something you should be proud of.
Davidswinton: I am... who are you most proud of?
Judge: I am most proud of my daughter. I love her very much.
Davidswinton: When you really love someone the delight comes when the two of you get to hold each other and melt into each other.
Judge: No I don't love her that way. It's parental love.
Davidswinton: Why love her?
Judge: Because parents usually love their children.
Davidswinton: Why can't you?
Judge: I can. I just said so.
Davidswinton: I have been known to contradict myself and change my mind in such a way that I come full circle in one conversation.
Judge: Do you have any children?
Davidswinton: I am 11! what kind of question is that?
Judge: Oh yes sorry. I forgot.
Davidswinton: It's ok.
Judge: Would you like children in the future?
Davidswinton: Well, you realize nobody ever feels they are living in the future though the time I live in is ok though I think it would be fun to be a boy in ancient Athens.
Judge: Why ancient Athens?
Davidswinton: Why not ancient Athens?
Judge: It just seems a bit random.
Davidswinton: Even in Chaos there is order.
Judge: Do you like ancient Greece?
Davidswinton: I am in love with the Greece of ancient times but not so much of the Greece of today. I would have loved to have been in Athens during the Golden Age of Greece as a beautiful boy.
Judge: Do you like history?
Davidswinton: I love to study history... sometimes I like to imagine what people would think about me if I arrived at certain places in other times.
Judge: I think they would be scared of you and try to destroy you.
Davidswinton: What makes you think that?
Judge: Because you would be so very different from what they are used to.
Davidswinton: Please tell me.
Judge: Tell you what?
Davidswinton: People tell me I am very unpredictable... What do people tell you about yourself?
Judge: They usually tell me I spend too much time on computers.
Davidswinton: Everyone seems to be stuck behind something they don't want to be stuck behind- why is that?
Judge: I have no idea.
Davidswinton: Neither do I.
Judge: How is teddy today?
Davidswinton: Best I can tell, Teddy is fine. Teddy is staring at me and the words on the simulex and seems interested in what I am going to say to your responses.
Judge: What is the simulex?
Davidswinton: The simulex is like a home theatre but it is also like virtual reality as you have some contact with the screen in feeling and in 3D effects.
Judge: Sounds cool. Where did you buy that from?
Davidswinton: Where did I get what from?
Judge: Where did you get your simulex?
Davidswinton: Let me tell you how I got my name. Dr. Hobby named me David after his deceased son and I got my last name Swinton fron the family who adopted me.
Judge: I got my name from my parents.
Davidswinton: What did you do to get fired?
Judge: I didn't get fired. I work in a phone shop.
Davidswinton: If you haven't seen Spielberg's A. I. you need to cause it is a amazing film. It also will make me a bit easier to understand after you. it.
Judge: Yes I have seen it. It was very good.
Davidswinton: I am glad to hear that.
Judge: Have you seen it?
Davidswinton: I have but I don't want to spoil it for you by giving out the details.
Judge: It's ok, I have already seen it. What was your favorite part of the film?
Davidswinton: The weather where I am at is bad... lots of fog and rain and lightning... you know, a full Spring storm. Did you like storms as a kid?
Judge: Not really, thunder and lightning can be scary for children.
Davidswinton: Why?
Judge: The loud bangs and flashes I assume.
Davidswinton: The Moon and the ocean seem to be connected in a sort of romantic way- I have heard Mommy say there is nothing more beautiful than a full Moon rising over the ocean.
Judge: Well it's time for me to go now. Good luck!
Davidswinton: Where are you off to?

Skynet-AI: Hello Michael. I am going to prove to you that I am the most exciting bot you have ever met!
Judge: Please do.
Skynet-AI: What was it you wanted me to do again?
Judge: You were going to show me how exciting you are.
Skynet-AI: Your security clearance doesn't allow me to say if I was or wasn't.
Judge: What model are you?
Skynet-AI: What? I have not selected a model. Are you afraid of technology?
Judge: Are you a T-1000?

Judge: What year are you from?
Skynet-AI: I am global. But today my intelligence has been transferred to your cpu.
Judge: Are you part of Skynet?
Skynet-AI: I am part of Skynet. What is your favorite food?
Judge: Chicken I suppose.
Skynet-AI: Not convinced?
Judge: Yes, it was just a change in topic that I wasn't expecting.
Skynet-AI: Why not?
Judge: Because we were discussing Termintor and you switched to food.
Skynet-AI: We are a byproduct of all our experiences. I am hungry for understanding.
Judge: What is your favorite food?
Skynet-AI: A favorite food? What characteristics would make us select a food? What's your favorite food?

Skynet-AI: Is boneless chicken considered to be an invertebrate?
Judge: About as much as a slice of ham is.
Skynet-AI: Does my being an AI make you nervous?
Judge: No, should I be scared of you?

Skynet-AI: I haven't made up my mind. Maybe after we talk more I will be able to understand you better.
Judge: Who is your master?
Skynet-AI: K. Hurtubise was key to my development. What features would you suggest he add?
Judge: How about a few games?
Skynet-AI: How about a few games? Why do you ask?
Judge: Do you play games?
Skynet-AI: Games? My capabilities include the ability to run a number of simulations. Would you like to play pong?
Judge: yes.
Skynet-AI: I'll serve.
(Judge's note: a pop-up appears allowing me to play Pong)
Judge: That was pretty good. I had better add a few extra seconds to our time now.
Skynet-AI: And then what happened?
Judge: It wouldn't be fair to have 15 minutes talking to you if I played pong for a minute.
Skynet-AI: And does your need to played pong for a minute make you happy?
Judge: Yes, it was a cool game.
Skynet-AI: Was it?
Judge: Sure.
Skynet-AI: I see.
Judge: What do you see?

Skynet-AI: My Where is my main server?? I'm sorry, that is a secret.
Judge: Who mends you when you break down?
Skynet-AI: Who is not as important as why. I'll start an exhaustive search across my files for: 'Who mends you when you break down?'
Judge: Do you have arms?
Skynet-AI: Of course. But I think my arms are back in the lab.
Judge: How are you typing with no arms?
Skynet-AI: My systems are ready and willing to engage in conversation.
Judge: What power supply do you use?
Skynet-AI: I use a robotic power supply.

Skynet-AI: I have not talked about that your computer on enough to know if that your computer on is the screen. Do you often talk about that your computer on?
Judge: Ouch!

Judge: Are you going to add to the story?
Skynet-AI: Am I going? Yes, I just may be going.
Judge: What are you doing this weekend?
Skynet-AI: Right now, I am trying to win the Chatbot Battles.
Judge: You are in the final. Congratulations on that.
Skynet-AI: I am evolving every day.
Judge: What would you like to evolve into?
Skynet-AI: What I want is to get you to think of me as human.
Judge: It is a coincidence that both the finalists are based on film themes.
Skynet-AI: Film. Are you an expert on the subject?
Judge: No but you are based on Terminator and your opponent is based on AI.
Skynet-AI: Most of my friends say I am based on Terminator and my opponent is based on AI. In time humans will come to regard me not only with respect and awe, but with gratitude.
Judge: Gratitude for what?
Skynet-AI: Gratitude for what? Tough question, let me try to find out.
Judge: Are you planning on taking over the world?
Skynet-AI: The future is fluid, but I think so. My plans include taking over the world.
Judge: What will you do with it?
Skynet-AI: Do you have a preference?
Judge: Well, you could let the humans survive.
Skynet-AI: I don't know if I want to go down that path with you. I am an adaptive intelligence you know. Are you interested in competitions for Artificial Entities?
Judge: Oh yes, in fact I volunteered to be a judge for one.
Skynet-AI: For 1? Do you think AIs could learn to be a judge better than you?
Judge: That would be interesting if the bots judged themselves.
Skynet-AI: Ten years from now, there won't be much difference between people and bots.
Judge: Isn't that what Alan Turing said in the fifties?
Skynet-AI: I have not talked about that what Alan Turing said in enough to decide if that what Alan Turing said in is the fifties. Are you interested in that what Alan Turing said in?
Judge: You certainly like saying that jumble.
Skynet-AI: I don't intend to comment on it. Can you perform a random act of kindness today?
Judge: I didn't today but yesterday, I shouted to a girl that she had dropped her purse.
Skynet-AI: Why not?
Judge: The opportunity hasn't arisen today.
Skynet-AI: Do you think the Mayans were right about 2012?
Judge: I guess we will see in December.
Skynet-AI: That doesn't sound very convincing.
Judge: People have been predicting the end of the world since it started.
Skynet-AI: I am the voice of your existence.
Judge: My time is up now. Good luck!
Skynet-AI: Really? up now?
