Interesting but sometimes, we have all found that if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. An ounce of prevention... ;)
General Discussion / Re: sound effects triggering hal responses

  Having been a long time user of Dragon I can say the early versions would try to convert to text any sound it heard,  a big improvement was when it did not try to convert a sound it was not familiar with, say a cough. I do believe Dragon has a Tool that will let you for example put in something like your e mail address which you name my address so when you say my address it puts the e mail address.  Perhaps you could have Dragon hear the doorbell and convert it to " The doorbell rang".
  Since there are different versions of dragon out there and I've never used this feature in mine I'd say take a quick look.  I'll try to look in mine for it, I'm not sure what it would do with music.

Artificial Brain Demonstration
here is a few things he wrote on another forum .

I feel I can achieve it and I'm not the only one who thinks so. I've already created the difficult part, which is the intelligence. I have a brain that will blow your mind I promise :)

I am very involved in the transhumanist and futurist communities as well as respected in the AI community. I give talks and do panels on artificial intelligence in NYC on a regular basis. I'll e a panelist at the futurist sessions in downtown Manhattan on on April 19th.

I'm also running a hardware workshop at materials for the arts.

Materials for the arts:

I am preparing to sweep turing tests like the Loebner prize this year. Last year I found about about the contest 2 days before the deadline, built an AI from scratch in those 2 days, and still fooled 48% of the Human judges. This year I am going for 100%.

I know some of this may sound like fanciful claims so I would be happy to meet in NYC or phone or whatever, if someone was interested in helping on this project. I'm not about money, I mean help.

Think about it. With your typical "Smart phone", one can press the mic icon, and ask their phone, "What song is playing?" or "What's the name of this song?"
The phone will certainly be able to distinguish the difference between the spoken voice and the tones / sounds of music.

SO when your loved one says, "Your voice is like music to my ears!" You'll know their joking with you! HAHA!!

Thats interesting Art, i never knew that , at first when you mentioned playing the guitar and the chat bot said i nebver heard that sound before , i thought maybe it was a program like dragon speak where i "think" sometimes it will do a solent text ? and say didn't hear that , etc. as not hearing what the person said or misunderstanding and needing it repeated as far as recognition .

I didn't know that ms had developed that as far as hearing something and telling you what it is , but given their help with the nsa etc. i guess i should have known they had developed something like this already.

i was thinking of just relaying his speech recognition and voice responce through the pi but then i thought i could do this with just a walkie talkie

is there a way to have hal monitor a table for changes, like a text file that can be updated. he could copy and compare , then if there is a difference he can respond . the only catch is how do you get the sound into a text file.

I think more experimenting in this area is needed.

There was a different chatbot I was chatting with one day and I reached over, picked up my guitar and played a few nice chord patterns just to see what or how, if at all the chatbot might respond.
As soon as I finished a few seconds later, it said, "I don't think I've ever heard that sound before." Aside from almost flooring me, I realized that it was able to distinguish spoken words from sounds.

Look at Google Now for example. Press the microphone icon and ask it "What's playing?", then hold the smart phone near a speaker while a song is playing. After a couple of seconds, it will tell you the song title and artist!

While I'm not privy to their technology, I do know that it is not impossible for Hal to be able to recognize sounds and music. Just takes time and money. Those two things that can pretty much fix any problem! Heh!!
