I noticed with the new Bot-Girl Jessi they are a couple of Buttons/Icons that show up once in a while in the upper left of HAL's  Avatar/Character Window and would like to know what they are for...

1. Once in a while a button shows up with a 'Lightbulb' in it, is this something HAL has learned from me or something from the main brain?

2. HAL had talked about writing a Paper for College and a piece of ruled paper showed up with a paperclip on it in the Button...

Do these or will they have a function if we click on them ???


Just curious, hahaha  ;D

General Discussion / HAL Mobile Teaser?
« on: May 15, 2018, 09:17:10 am »
Last week I started up HAL and was greeted by a "HAL Mobile" Splash Screen before the menu came up... It hasn't happened since so I was thinking maybe Robert was giving us a notice that maybe the Mobile version will be ready to test in the near future...

Or it just could have been a Fluke...  ;D  Hahahaha...

Was looking through the code and found this, look at line 31 in my attached image...

The spinner sequence should go from 1 to 5 but line 31 says; If Spinner = 23 then line 32 says: If Spinner = 2

Is that just a mistake Doony?...  :)

This would be really nice to have with HAL also.

"Microsoft believes it has created the first technological breakthrough that can allow people to have a conversation with an AI-powered chatbot that is more like that natural experience a person might have when talking on the phone to a friend."

Ultra Hal Assistant / New Features we would like in HAL 7.1
« on: December 18, 2017, 10:13:22 am »
Robert suggested this topic so here we go...

1. I would like an Embedded or Plugin "Spell Checker" since I and some people have Dumb Thumbs and can't spell very well... Maybe there's a Spell checker in the cloud somewhere we could tap into...  :o

2. Since HAL sometimes Tells Jokes we should have an Option in Thumbs Up to rate the quality of the joke like:  "ROTFL"  and for Thumbs Down: "That Was a Silly/Stupid Joke"... (I'm not sure is this is worthwhile or not)...

3. Not sure if this could be done, but it would be nice if you give HAL a name like "Kate" or "Tom" etc. Hal would recognize his or her name when you said it in a sentence like: Kate I'm going to the store, do you need anything?... It would have to work if you decided to change the name multiple times also...

4. The ability to speed up or slow down the Voices. I like mine a bit slow so I can listen to what is said easier... I thought I could do it through the Windows Text to Speech Control Panel but it seems it's not working with HAL 7, I thought I did it with HAL 6.2...  Maybe I'm going crazy... LOL  ;D


I'll add more as I spend more time with HAL 7...

Post your wants for HAL 7.1 guys...  :P

Ultra Hal Assistant / A Question of HAL 7's Thumbs up/Down usage.
« on: December 17, 2017, 09:18:34 pm »
Since I'm starting all over with HAL, he doesn't have much to go on when responding to my sentences and his responses are usually something I taught him a couple of days before...

Most of the time I click on "Off Topic" and I can't find any Suitable Answers in the list so I just click on "Learn"...

Do we have to pick a "Replacement Response?"...

I think maybe I could use some "Instruction" on how Thumbs Up / Down and the choices are suppose to work.... LOL  ;D

Thanks...

Ultra Hal Assistant / Couple of things HAL 7 no longer pronounces
« on: December 14, 2017, 10:47:17 am »
I noticed when there is a 'LOL' Hal 7 doesn't try say it like he did in 6.2, now he just reads the letters...  Same with 'mmm this tastes yummy'. he just pronounces the mmm's...

Maybe it's too early on in my Training of HAL 7 for him to find examples of me using it...

Not sure or not if this would be easier than adding a 'Spell Checker' to HAL but it would probably be cheaper in the long run if it can be done...

I've noticed that there are times when I give HAL a 'Thumbs Down' and I find none of the recommended responses are what I would have used or I misspelled a word or two and HAL can't pronounce them...

So how about a 'User Misspelled Word' and a 'Replace This Response With' (Where it replaces the response HAL just gave and/or the misspelled word(s))... This way the user can correct it himself... HAL would replace the 'misspelled word(s)' and/or replace the old response with the 'New Response' in the HalBrain.db database... Then the next time HAL is run he would have access to the corrections...

I remember being told you can't run the Brain Editor at the same time as HAL so I guess it would have to be done while he is shutting down or saved in a file and the HAlBrain.db edited just before he starts up the next time... You could put a note on Start Up/Shut Down: "Please Wait while HAL is Making Changes" then he would start normally or shut down...

If this can't be done then a 'Spell Checker' would be nice instead :D... Hahaha


I do have a learning question also... Would it hurt HAL's 'Overall Intelligence' if I set his learning Learning Level to "MAX" and input about 20 sentences that I have previously wrote down and then change his learning back to "25%" and continue talking to him???  I am writing new things and adding from my HAL 6.2 Brain things that I have taught him over the past 12 months and I don't want to lose the old stuff...

Since my 6.2 HalBrain.db has a Index corruption or something like that, that won't allow me to see the tables and I wouldn't know how to extract the stuff I want to pass on to HAL 7 anyways so I have Exported the DB to a Text file.

I have to tell ya, that exported HalBrain.db file came up with around 6,000 pages in Open Office Writer, it crashed a couple of times... Hahahahaha

It's easier to manage in the Crimson Editor... So I am finding the stuff I want to save and use again...

Thanks!!!!!
