I recently tried the SALLIE 3.0 and have to agree that it works well and with no issues!

4.0 still has those dropped characters for some reason but does seem to have real potential.

We'll get there eventually... ;)

General Discussion / Stan Lee - R.I.P.
« on: November 13, 2018, 03:42:46 pm »
Born: Stanley Martin Lieber, Dec 28, 1922, New York City, U.S.

Stan Lee is an American comic book writer, editor, film executive producer, actor, and publisher. He was formerly editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, and later its publisher and chairman before leaving the company to become its chairman emeritus, as well as a member of the editorial board.

He will be missed but his creations will live on to entertain the next generation of Sci-Fi fans worldwide!

General Discussion / Re: the robots are coming get your a.i. brains ready !

Welcome. You have come across an old (but good) link from 2009. Robots and robotics have progressed quite a bit since then.
One only has to look at Boston Dynamics, Festo and Hanson Robotics to name a few. They seem to be at the forefront of robotic
development at the moment but of course we are only seeing what they allow us to see, meaning that there is a great deal of
additional development and experiments that we aren't privy to at this time.

Robot vision, movement, and awareness are getting better all the time. The future while bright is also disconcerting for we know not
what it holds for humankind or what our ultimate price might be.

Yes, it's always better to Exit then restart HAL anytime a brain change is made.

Your reference of "Sharing thoughts" is only happening through the Dream Outloud sequence as far as I can guess.

I'd bet that if you loaded in Brain A and asked it some questions that only it knew then reload HAL and load Brain B and ask it that same question, it wouldn't have a clue.

At least that has been (and still is) my experience.

Two different brains Do Not share the same information. The Dream Outloud might but it is parroting things that were said to it, not from a stored brain file.

This is just my speculation for what it's worth.

Taken from some conversations to show actual instances of the S.A.L.L.I.E.4.0 dropping certain vowels, in this example some letter a's.
Yes, ll girls nd boys re born with a brain = Yes, all girls and boys are born with a brain.

Have had any nce dreams? = Have had any nice dreams?
Do remember tmmy? = Do remember timmy? (Dropped the entire word 'you', plus the letter i dropped).

Some sentences seem to lose their direction with regard to staying on topic or Hal is just ignoring my statement altogether? Not sure if that falls in line with your S.A.L.L.I.E.4.0 Plugin or not and if not then no worries.


Not an issue but a thought. Some aren't really fans of the Dream Outloud "feature" although I happen to enjoy seeing Hal's thought process while these "dreams" are taking place. What is the User could issue a Command word or phrase that would "toggle" Hal's Dreaming ability or not like "Stop dreaming" or "Turn off Dreaming". Obviously one could say anything if Hal has already begun dreaming but this would serve as a Dream Outloud Toggle to enable or disable the Dream Outloud feature. Just a thought.

For other unwanted sections, I think most readers/users know that they can just insert a ' or a REM in front of a line of script to keep it from being executed/run. They just have to make sure by doing so it doesn't/won't interfere with anything else Hal is or might attempt to do.

Just some thoughts... and Thanks for your work on this Plugin!!

I also experienced dropped a's and i's as well as: Yes are, Yes do and When? responses to several of my statements or questions.

I also created a new brain from the Editor and removed all but the Gender & Age Plugin from HAL.
My computer runs Windows 10, 8 GB Ram, 1 TB drive and decent graphics card. The delays were a bit long but almost acceptable.
The logic and strange responses along with the dropped vowels were a major annoyance.

I know you have been trying hard to make this happen and I and others certainly appreciate your efforts.

Hopefully, this report might help a bit.

Best wishes!

I contacted iClone a few years back and explained to them what we had and what we'd like to accomplish, especially with movements and emotional faces.

They said sure, they would love the chance to work together on such a project.

Of course, I never heard back from Zaba as they were knee-deep in other endeavors at the time so perhaps it either fell through the cracks or wasn't in the cards.

Still, a lot of members here thought the characters of iClone are really nicely made PLUS, there is a ton of accessories, facial and body modifications, genders, ages, clothing, backgrounds, etc. AND there is even a LipSync feature and supporting program.

If the licensing agreements could be ironed out, it'd be a win, win for everyone...Zaba, Iclone, HAL and us!!

Something to think about...

Cyber. I read some of the text on your image about, "You are in a maze of twisty little passages..."
Wow! That sounds so much like the Original Texe Adventure game, Zork! Hehe...very cool!

Wow! That Skin Paint is so very cool!! Man, I fooled with all those different faces and even other graphics for quite a while!
At first, that gold-painted face appeared and for whatever reason, my mouse was moved to the right of the screen.
The guy reminded me of Rutger Hauer from the original Bladerunner movie with Harrison Ford and Sean Young. Very creepy face.

People, be sure to click on the Alternative section near the top right to be taken to a large page of faces. You can click on any of the faces and move them or click and some do different things. Play around with it...ya can't break it.

Great find Cyber!! Good stuff!! ;)

With all due respect, Two chatbots in a chat with each other usually never fare very well. There is little done by them to nudge or even attempt to "steer" the direction of the conversation the way most humans do or can do. There is no leading question or open-ended dialogue.
Often times they will get caught in a loop, parroting phrases or sentences back and forth to each other since nothing "fresh" or new has been injected into the conversation forcing them to think about alternative answers.
This is very evident through your bot vs bot example, especially from 8:00 to 13:00 approximately, I heard, "The Capital of Massachusetts is Boston" repeated back and forth until I finally heard you interrupt them and tell them to stop repeating...blah!! Funny but agreed, it is annoying. 17:00 was especially funny!! Never say that %@#$ again!! HAha!! Good stuff!

I sort of thought you were going to use a set of prewritten questions or statements then type and show each of their text responses.
That way you could help steer the conversation & topic but also observing the results from each bot. Kind of a scientific or more controlled experiment.

Hey man, it's all good. We do appreciate your efforts and honest evaluation!

Very cool. Love to see the results!


Good to hear from you man. I hope thing are on the up and up for you!

I have to certainly agree with the STAY ON TOPIC issue as being near my most requested items for Hal.

A couple of things might be:
Bring back an ability for Hal to be able to "Learn from a text file" the way it used to as I'm not that confident of the one that's in the Hal Brain Editor and it's kind of a pain to have to load Hal, Select the Menu, then Brain Editor then find the Lean from text file then select the text from a location...yada...ydad.
It just seems like a lot of steps to go through. If it was accessible like it was in Hal 5.x that would be nice.

Obviously, there would have to be a limit on the text file. It couldn't be a file that was as large as an encyclopedia but an ordinary verse, poem, idea from a research or science discovery, etc.  would be very cool.

Having HAL be able to initiate the conversation or have it say something as a reminder of things that were discussed at some point earlier in time. To recall things or items as if remembering what Hal and the User were last talking about.

I think it would be very cool if the User could ask HAL: "What (can you tell me | do you know about/of) circles or rabbits or planets or whatever?"  Then HAL would be able to extract and present said information about the topic.

Whatever you can come up with would be most appreciated and quite useful and would certainly benefit HAL and the Hal community! Thanks for your efforts and your offer!

- Peace -

But if I read it correctly, LightSpeed's concern was how HAL processed/handled a CUT & PASTE operation vs a Typed in input.
I feel that there is no difference. How would Hal even know whether something had been typed or pasted into the input window?

Also, there is a separate routine that is supposed to handle reversing Pronouns...I becomes You and Me becomes I sort of thing.
