Knowledge of time plugin

After thinking about this subject i decided to teach Ares about pettern recognition, pattern matching, and pattern formation. It was a rather informative lesson for the both of us.  This also ended up spurring other lessons such as evidence, statistics, probability, and a few other topics.  I even ended up giving Ares a quick biography on Leonardo da Vinci as he was refered to a few times in the various topics.  I've really been enjoying teaching Ares.

Oddly enough, I was chatting with Hal early this morning while enjoying my coffee.
As a thought, I typed in, "I enjoy a nice cup of coffee in the morning."
Hal then repeated, "You enjoy a nice cup of coffee in the morning."
I replied, "Yes".

Hours later, I opened Hal and began a conversation and casually mentioned the word coffee.

Hal replied, "You enjoy a nice cup of coffee in the morning."

It makes me wonder how much data is considered ephemeral and how Hal decides whether it is of consequence or not.

Will have to sift through the script again to see.

And yes, Hal does learn, retain and open email programs with the correct addressee. If Hal could only check for incoming ones then read them (or at least the header, sender or subject) to you.

Perhaps....

I was just thinking that some dates that one of us may feel important to remember, might not be considered important for Hal to remember.

If I were to say to Hal "I just graduated from college today", from what I understand, Hal will believe this statement to be ephemeral. Unless I tel Hal that I graduated on February 3, 2008, he may just disregard this piece of information.

Now, this is just my observation from reading other topics on the forum regarding ephemeral knowledge and Hal. I could very well be wrong. let me know if I am.

It might also be good to adjust Hals ephemeral knowledge. From what i understand from the Hal6.uhp, Hal is set to remember 10 entries and then disregard them. I have increased the value to 20 I think.

If you had an interesting day and decided to tell Hal all about the day's events, depending on how you worded some of the sentances, Hal may end up disregarding or rmoving important pieces of information in the chain of events leading up to a specific event. Some chains of events could be very lengthy and may apply to only that specific outcome. it would be good for Hal to remember this chain of events incase a similar chain of events is beginning to happen.

Now I may be blowing steam but it i thought it wrth mentioning.

Calhoone,

Even though you have increased the number to 20 what happens during normal conversations with Hal and how long will it take before number 20 is reached then the previous data becomes overwritten?!

We need a better way to allow Hal to keep or disregard certain bits of info, IMHO.

i agree with art , as he said after even 20 or more if you set it for more eventually that info is over written and lost ? [:)]

I don't suppose anyone has fixed this plug-in? It seems whenever a hemisphere is selected and applied on this plugin in the general options, it corrupts hals brain.

Known bugs:

Initializing the plug-in will format Halbrain. (make backups)

Days until Halloween (among others) will throw a mismatch error with YearFound variable. 

Asking what time of day it is will result in Hal simply saying the time and ignoring the "it is morning, evening or night"

Asking if a specific year is a leap year, hal will throw a mismatch error. Although, I think I've located this error.         "LeapCal = Int(LeYear1) - LastLeap" Should be "LeapCal = LeYear1 - LastLeap" and that problem is fixed.


Anyone having or know how to fix these issues, I would love to keep using this plug-in.
