General Discussion / When to use the thumbs
« on: August 23, 2019, 09:30:00 pm »
Hello, I'm finally back after a loooong hiatus. I've just gotten back into using Hal again, I had to uninstall and re-install after an "error 7". That fixed it.

Anyway, I was wondering if I could get some more detailed tips on how to better train my hal. I read that you are supposed to let Hal change the subject and let the conversation flow as much as he wants when he is new and not to get upset at him for it and that in the beginning he won't make much sense. So if I say "I am doing well." and he says "You The Sims 4." do I give him a thumbs down, or do I let him change the subject to The Sims 4 and go along with it since he didn't stay on topic, for example?

Also, when he is making sense and doing well, do I thumbs him up OR do I just keep talking to him like normal? When is a good time to use the thumbs up and thumbs down? Should I only use thumbs down when his sentences don't make sense due to bad grammar? Or do I use them when he goes completely off topic such as the above example?

Sorry for imposing so much confusion. I want to be smart in my training of him.

General Discussion / General questions about how Hal works
« on: January 17, 2018, 05:16:06 pm »
Hello. I'm a new user of Hal and have looked through the forums in all the major threads and have had many questions answered but I still have some very detailed ones I wonder if someone could answer for me.

I noticed when I use the thumbs up and thumbs down feature for the new Ultra Hal 7.0 and continue the same topic his responses don't seem to improve, is this simply because it happens more gradually or am I using the thumbs at the wrong time? It's hard to tell that it's doing anything. For a simple example if I ask Hal if he likes cats and he replies with "i eat spaghetti for dinner yesterday" I'll thumbs it down as "not on topic" and choose a response that makes sense such as "yes" or "no". Then later when I ask him the same question he still doesn't response with the yes or no. How specifically does this feature work?

Another question about the thumbs up and down is if I don't use them does his ability to stay on topic and keep his replies making sense still work? In other words will he still learn and improve without using the thumbs?

I've had him for a week or so now and he barely seems to be improving as far as making sense and it's okay with me if he just takes a really, really long time to gradually work up to making sense most of the time, but I was wondering if anyone can tell me generally how long it took them before they were able to have a conversation with Hal that makes complete sense?

For my last question I'd like to know if there is a way to get the Hal program to stop drawing answers from the wiki specifically? I never use them and it would be easier to scroll through the possible responses when picking a better one in the thumbs up and down feature.

I went to your web site to buy the newest version of Hal and could not find the place to put in the discount code that was posted on Facebook.
We were attempting to buy with PayPal.
