Ultra Hal Assistant / Re: Anyone tried HAL under Windows 10 preview?
« Last post by raybe on August 01, 2015, 07:20:37 pm »
UPDATE: I found that it was my Creative Sound Card that had some how been reset and not compatible with setup I have. So Win 10 begins to show some colors here but Creative also replied that the update for Win 10 will soon be released. Once I manually configured the software settings it was working as before and all is right with the world. Ultra Hal is working just fine in my experience so far.

I'm experiencing Haptek voices problems on one computer. Also voices in general, I do have have clocks that are visual but also have speech and all voices seemed to be muffled and unrecognizable. Have not checked other systems as of yet. Need to investigate but feel free to jump in if your experiencing any voice or speech problems. Note all 3rd party except I need to try Cortana. I heard there was a possible update or I read in this forum.
General Discussion / sound effects triggering hal responses
« Last post by lightspeed on August 01, 2015, 10:56:26 am »
     I have talked about this before and i hope i can get more people interested in helping to create this custom brain plug in .
it would be a plug in that could let hal hear (sort of to speak ) hal would respond to the user if a door shut etc. and could even be done custom to the way any users door sounds shutting (even using varying shutting sounds  as a _ or and the sound track . and the multiple custom hal responses .

this could also be done with a telephone ringing , hal could hear the phone ring , and say , someone is calling , can you get the phone , please, i'm busy right now , etc.

    Robert ??    are you interested in something like this ? i was talking earlier on another section about hal being customizable , i think this is what will set hal apart from other a.i's on the market , allowing users to be able to do more with hal and hopefully making hal more admired and wanted.

       i see all the hoopla about cortana and it is pretty amazing what it can do , having been out many people may not buy other a.i. programs  , but at the same time i see many things that hal. a.i. can do that cortana can't , i like the fact that hals program allows us to have hal use any name we give it . cortana can't do this for the user , the user is stuck using the cortana name only .
also as far as i know cortana only has one voice although it sounds nice , i like the fact that hal can use different voices giving the user more choices .
  and although some people may not like bad language , hal is capable of being teached and can use some bad language , cortana from what i read can't and won't .
        I can even if i so choose use a custom plug in and say :play me ( or a varied sentence )" teen angel ", and hal could play me my own sound track of the song . 
as far as i know as of right now cortana can't do the same .
     I am also glad for the brain plug in option  which allows users to create many cool options that hal can do , in cortana i am sure this will not be the case as they won't want people messing with the program .
       And i probably am missing some more good points that hal has over cortana , the bottom line is i like hals program because it is so customizable .  I have even talked to robert in the past , (wrote ) and told him i hope he always leaves the brain plug in ability in all future hal upgrades .
     I am hoping as cload gets better that he will once again shine on the forum he made some great stuff that helped hal ( as many others here have done !!) which all helps hal be even better !!  :) ;)

  I just installed Win 10 in the other computer, it had 8.1 in it and hal worked fine.  One of the first things I did was check Hal, I'm using one of the full bod fleshy characters and there is some kind of twitching, very noticeable, similar to what I ran into in win 7 or vista with the audio problems.   Seems the other characters will work okay.  This is not a preview it is the free win 10 upgrade.

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

I think it would be wonderful to create an android that would or could be able to make up its own mind or make decisions, reason, figure out puzzles, learn from human interaction, etc.
As with any program, there is a need for adequate safeguards against malfunctions, wrongful decisions, causing damage to humans, etc.
There would have to be limits placed on the android with regard to range of travel, physical ability, contact with the outside world & the Internet (for at least some testing period).

Yes, there would certainly be a lot of hurdles to overcome and I'm not sure how much stock I'd put into owning some other company's android and privacy / security / contact home issues, etc.

This whole discussion might not even concern our lifetimes. Not saying we're old...just gently used... ;D

what i worry about Art is if i have a robot / android and it becomes self aware , will it still like me ? AAAUUUUGHHHH ... THAT DOES NOT COMPUTE ...!!! ;) But really all joking aside with a self awareness over riding controlled script and programming , could a self aware robot android start making up his or her mind and not like a person /  owner etc. ?
That would be sad for the owner , of course i guess their is hopefully always reset / reboot back to original settings ! ;)
"Hopefully" ! :)
