But of course this means that I have found it quite difficult to publish this or publicize it. Of course this is all nothing to do with AI, as I elaborate on the Turing Test page. like when was 05/02/89 :1 the 05/02/89 * paris is a beautiful city 05/02/89 From SOMEONE at DRAKE: last time that you got laid..unless it was when you 05/02/89 :2 were born o'my he said something different.
It's no coincidence that Hutchens and I are both professional AI researchers who disown our own creations. a 05/02/89 In fact, the very introduction of the whole line of questioning about sex was a complete accident (though once the user responded, MGonz was guaranteed to stay on the topic).
In 4th year (early 1989), I hooked it up to my Net account (on the node IRLEARN on EARN/BITNET), so that when I was logged off (or to be precise, disconnected, from a VM/CMS system), it would process all talk messages sent to me.
There were numerous hilarious incidents, but this is the best one. I've logged out and gone off with my girlfriend, leaving Eliza (or "MGonz" as I called it) to mind the fort.
for you it must have 05/02/89 :5 been 20 years 05/02/89 Police interrogation teams will be familiar with this method of "keep asking the same question, ignoring all answers, until he cracks". The next day, I logged in, and was amazed to find out what my machine had been up to in my absence.
Here is the So what's the secret of an effective Turing Test-passer? Hutchens, author of Mega HAL (see 1996 Loebner transcript), has written a document, How to Pass the Turing Test by Cheating.
I'd love to link from here to the real, Spanish MGONZ, but I'm afraid for the moment, he is lost somewhere out there in the ether. It has now spawned the name of a fictional person/bot "Liz" Gonzales (a combination of "Eliza" and "MGonz") in a story by Jon Camfield.
He also seems to have misread the first name as "Matthew" and named another character "Mateo" after it.One of the things that made MGonz successful was the element of surprise.Users of a CGI script Eliza expect to be talking to a program.In 2000, AOLiza returned to the element of surprise on the AOL Instant Messenger system.Like my program, and unlike the Loebner test, users do not expect to be talking to a machine.See if you can work out why this happened: * jesus who let you near me go away 05/02/89 From SOMEONE at DRAKE: i'll never tell 05/02/89 :0 * jesus who let you near me go away 05/02/89 From SOMEONE at DRAKE: [SOMEONE #2] 05/02/89 :2 From SOMEONE at DRAKE: are there two people on your username? From SOMEONE at DRAKE: do you have all these silly sayings on some sort of 05/02/89 :4 control?
