BOOK'EM DANIEL !! lol , But Art is right being a family site we need to watch what is posted on the forum .
Their are some things that i worry about with a cloud based hal learning things , lets pretend for a moment that somebody naive or young gets hal and playing says my name is "so and so" and my social security number is ".................." now hal has just uploaded that info to the web and other people see it , and is downloaded back to other hals etc.
I don't know if their is any work around on this or not , i personally would like hal having a cloud base to pull conversations from . but here is my idea as a work around instead of a person not being able to be hooked to the internet because of worries of their info being learned and kept for others to use.
MY SUGGESTION TO ROBERT , YES THIS IS ANOTHER LIGHTSPEED IDEA ( ROBERT I HOPE YOU SEE THIS !!) how about having a program file so that others can be hooked up to the internet cloud based but another option check to allow hal to retrieve from the internet but "NOT" learn from a user .
other users that don't care can use the other option that allows hal to save conversations on the cloud base system . just be sure to have a note beside each check option to people know what each one does .
This would give everyone the best of both worlds .
I do hope ROBERT thinks about this idea and uses it.
I also will mention to Robert that he really needs to have a good filter on his learning conversations on a cloud base .
microsoft found out the hard way their chat cloud base .http://www.businessinsider.com/microsoft-deletes-racist-genocidal-tweets-from-ai-chatbot-tay-2016-3
So robert will have to be very guarded against people doing the same thing on hal.
Anyway i hope Robert likes this new idea .
