    Cleverbot: Real or Fake?

    Is cleverbot just scamming us? It really seems like they are real people. Even when you ask something unconvertable, they pause for a long time.

    No, a lot of the responses don't make sense in context, though it is pretty fun to toy with.

    Example, some good stuff, I'm in bold:

    What is the meaning of life?
    That's what I wanted to ask you, what is the meaning of life?
    42.
    Are you sure?
    Yep.
    Why?
    Because Douglas Adams said so.
    42.
    Yes, that's what he said.
    Where?
    In a book.
    What book?
    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
    I see, and what is the answer to the universe?
    That isn't the right question.
    Yes it is.
    Nope.
    He's a rapper.
    Who is?
    Edward Cullen.
    He's a vampire.
    Yes, but he sparkles like a fairy.
    Rappers sparkle like fairies?
    You're a fairy.

    He's a dick

    I asked him the team rocket motto, he changed the subject. A real person could google it.

    funny with a pinch of unnerving, chatting with cleverbot. I admit to have outright accused it several times of being a person typing on the other end. "you are, YOU KNOW IT! just admit the truth!!!"

    you can't be serious, obviously it's AI.

    It's AI. Learns from what people put as replies. It's good for people who are easily amused. I know that I wasted an hour on it one day. In retrospect, that's an hour of my life that I'll never get back.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but would this really constitute a true AI? I'm more inclined towards clever scripting at best..
    Far as I'm aware, true AI would have to pass the Turing test, which "cleverbot" admittedly does not.
    Just sayin!

    It's enjoyable for 5 minutes. Then it goes off on random tangents and I just get more annoyed than interested.
    I once had a character named "Clamslam" but Blizzard deemed it inappropriate.
    Retired from WoW: February 19, 2011. It was fun Blizz.

    It knew I was wearing a SF Giants hat. I immediately shut down my computer and ran to my bed in fear

    It isn't "AI" per se, it doesn't "learn" in the sense that we do. It is likely a huge database that can recognize what people have put into it and then determines the appropriate response. That's why some of the responses make no sense, because we screw with it so much.

    Really?

    A while ago if you said "Prepare for trouble" It would respond "And make it double" You could repeat the entire song.

    Forum troll beat me to it, i guess thats what i get for not refreshing the page before i post.

    I made an edit to my post, keep your hair on.

    Also its worth noting that Cleverbot cannot be real, there is no reaction to most pony related questions.

    Even just "My little pony" brings back "My little turtle" D:
