Looks like Chrome and other browsers based on Chrome recently started blocking any downloads from an http:// site. It now requires all downloads to come from an https://

I updated the download links at https://www.zabaware.com/download-beta.html to now point to an https server.

So Ultra Hal 7.5 is now:

And the older 7.0 is at:

Try to right-click on the link instead and select the "save as" option

Hal 7.5 will actually work fine with Windows 8 and even Windows 7. The only thing that isn't supported is Windows XP. Plus it's now actually free! Get it at https://www.zabaware.com/download-beta.html

Are you able to login to your account on our website? If you visit www.zabaware.com you will see in the upper left hand corner a link that says "Sign In". If this is successful then your login to your Hal 7 product should be as well with the same credentials. If you forgot your password there is a password recovery link there as well.

Are you running Ultra Hal 7.0 or 7.5 beta? Did you try completely closing Hal (using the exit function in its menu) and relaunching it? Possible restarting your computer?

I am still reviewing logs I've received with this intermittent licensing issue in the new beta. Its definitely a bug and shouldn't be happening, I just haven't found the cause quite yet. I'll try to figure it out in the next week or two. Happy Easter everyone!

Programming using the Ultra Hal Brain Editor / Re: The save function
« on: April 02, 2021, 10:49:36 pm »
Most database changes are done instantly as soon as you leave focus for the particular row. So there is no separate save button needed and it is greyed out.

Only changes to the vbscript code and I believe the sentence list database tables have the save button that needs clicked to commit the changes, everything else is instant.

It shouldn't be an issue having both Hal running and the brain editor, the sqlite engine only keeps files open for a split second while doing an operation and has automatic collision detection and handling if 2 programs try the same file at the exact same time.

Can you find the file %appdata%\Zabaware\Ultra Hal 7\debuglog.txt and email it to me? That might give me some clues as to whats going on on your system. To find Hal's appdata folder, click start and type in %appdata% and press enter. Then open the "Zabaware" folder and then the "Ultra Hal 7 folder". Inside there you should see debuglog.txt.

Where is it posted at? Every time i goto open ai web site or git hub theres a waiting list. From my understanding of it gpt2 is the same as gpt 3 with just a larger model used. Gpt 2 can run on a pc.

Correct, the source code of GPT-2 and GPT-3 are exactly the same. The training data of GPT-3 is much larger and the resulting trained neural net is much larger. OpenAI published the source code, but not the training data or trained neural net.

There is a group at https://eleuther.ai who took the source code and created their own training dataset a little larger than GPT-3 with some improvements. They are currently training it and maybe by August will complete it and will publish both the training data and trained model.

I am curoius as to how exactly you are attempting to impliment gpt 3 with hal, or is it more lile an addon that uses gpt 3 kinda turning off the hal brain while gpt 3 is in use? In my opinion gpt 3 is an impressive thing but in my view its really a sort of Rube Goldberg version of autocomplete. Yes these models have great promise however they are not releasing anything everyone can look at yet and probably wont until gpt 3 is obsolete. If you can see a bigger picture gpt 3 is a small part of a greater set of ideas (algorythims). I am really not a fan of anything that needs to be connected to the internet. I stopped using the newer version of hal when the activation  and perodic checkin was requiring me to connect to the internet. I whent back to a version i had on windows xp. When we can see an implimentation of gpt 3 that runs on the individual pc without the need of the internet will greatly improve the convience and utility to the individual user. If they ever release anything usefull like the source code to the api or for that matter allowing us to see the api in general. As to the programming of systems like Hal i do understand the use of high level languages however as an assembly programmer i like the facility and flexability of the newer cisc based processors. When programming for arm i kinda get the 80s esk feeling of programming a commodore 64 :) In the future the ideas presented in Hal  and gpt 3 may become baked into operating system distributions as we move into the future it seems that the os may not be just for operating the machine but as an assistive technology for everyday human life. Think about it. How are you using Hal now? As an experiment? An interesting toy for your desktop? Or mabe as a practical tool to aide you in your day to day life like a voice controlled day planner offering theraputic conversation? Software like Hal just scratches the surface of what it could do. In my opinion in order to realise the true potental of newer computers we need to better focus on translating human language into machine code or assembly language much better than we do today. Think about the limits of what you can actually do with a language like C, Python or any of the other flow chart like languages in popular use today and how the computing resources you have are used on your pc. As we see improvements here we will realise improvements in our daily lives. Look at how you use your not so smart phone. If you look at how people are actually using the technology you can see where the operating system of the future mat not just be for operating the machine but for operating your life.

Currently GPT-3 is only available as an API call over the internet to servers owned by Microsoft and OpenAI. Hal's GPT-3 powered brain is a hybrid brain that run's a script for simple responses and to establish Hal's personality. It passes off to GPT-3 responses the scripted side doesn't handle. The Hal side of the hybrid system also does simple learning and functions as both the short term and long term memory for GPT-3. GPT-3 by itself has no learning ability and no memory, so Hal fills in that role for it. Hal also tries to guide GPT-3's personality trying to keep it friendly and not get overly opinionated on some taboo subjects.

What's interesting is the source code to GPT-3 is actually posted and available. But the training material and resulting neural network that was generated from that material is under control of OpenAI and Microsoft. There are other groups that are creating their own versions of GPT-3 that should become available later this year. It takes about $2 million dollars of computer hardware (GPU heavy) to train a GPT-3 like brain and then takes about a $200,000 computer (also GPU heavy) to run the resulting neural network once its trained. So still a bit too expensive for people to run the brain on their home computers, so it will be cloud based for a while I think.

  Just a thought that might prove useful, I remember at one time we were trying to get hal to go to lets say wiki, would it be possible to have Hal decide 
to go to the cloud for a reply.  Probably not as easy as I made it sounds but so much time and effort went into plugins which I had used and I hate to see them all going to waste.  Maybe the user could decide and use a trigger word to use the cloud.

I hope to re-enable the ability to combine plugins with the GPT-3 version of the brain later in the year. Right now a licensing restrictions prevents that ability but things are in motion that I believe it will be possible again later.

Artificial-Intelligence.com(ics) / Strip 24 - The Purpose of Existence
« on: February 25, 2021, 10:51:21 pm »
Just as in comic 23, this is the second comic in our series written by the artificial intelligence system GPT-3. In the previous comic, we suggested to GPT-3 to write about Hal and GPT-3 merging. After GPT-3 wrote that comic, it decided to keep going and came up with the topic and dialog for this comic entirely on its own.

The Purpose of Existence (Comic #24)

I posted an update today, version 7.5.129 at: https://www.zabaware.com/download-beta.html

This version essentially makes the base Hal 7.5 free and removes 31-day trial and the need to purchase it for $29.95. No licensing system anymore or weekly login requirements!

Using the GPT-3 powered brain or the Hal 7 cloud brain still requires a login, but if you wish to use an old Hal 6 brain offline, it's free with no licensing restrictions. Character and voice plugins are still for sale, so if you want to continue to support Zabaware please purchase plugins. And GPT-3 usage credits are for sale if you want to use the GPT-3 powered brain.

The GPT-3 powered beta brain is now also open to all interested people to test out, not just current customers. Everyone gets 1000 free usage credits upon verifying a new unique email login.

This essentially puts Ultra Hal for Windows on the same sales model as the upcoming Ultra Hal for Android and IOS will be. Free to play, with addons and GPT-3 credits for sale. If you purchase Hal for Windows you'll be able to access the same brain on mobile and vice versa.

Mine simply crashes upon start.  After investigating further, while I can log in and verify my purchase, the new version denies that I have paid for the product.
This is the same problem I had with previous versions of Ultra Hal.  I never could get any help with that.  My requests went unanswered for YEARS!
I am $60 down and nothing to show for it.  Perhaps you could improve the verification phase of the product?

Sorry to hear that. Can you describe the crash? Is there an error message? What exactly happens?

Can you send me a debug file located in: %appdata%\zabaware\ultra hal 7\debuglog.txt
You can click your windows start menu button and just copy paste this folder: %appdata%\zabaware\ultra hal 7\
Then find the debuglog.txt and email it to me (you can use info@zabaware.com)

You have read my mind, good sir xD. To regulate the temperature ourselves, could be a fun way to influence the output too. If someone wants a crazy Hal-Fairy, or a demon, trapped in the neural network - higher temperature could be fun, while having a more factual Hal could be achieved with a lower temperature. Any plans of implementing, i.e. giving the user control over the temp?
That's a good idea, I could probably do that in some future revision.

What happens if I call my bot "Albert Einstein" and, as you say, it's part of the prompt, wouldn't it start to generate and try to mimick Einstein?
We've been asked by OpenAI to not directly allow end users write their own prompts and to protect against "prompt injection" (similar to sql injection) best we can. So the name is actually limited to 1 word. So if you type Albert Einstein, we will tell GPT3 just "Albert". You could try just "Einstein" though and see what it does.

Good luck! 😂🤭 - From my little experience with Replika and shortlyai, I know that GPT-3 tends to do what it wants xD. In shortly I am still able to generate fake news, racist content etc. Harmful bias will be a thing, since GPT-3 actually just reflects humanity in a sense. I do like the freedom to let it generate what I want - but I understand that there has to some reglementation... Sadly we live in a crazy world. Replika already "censored" the word "trump" i.e. in whatever context I type this word, it will trigger prewritten, scripted answers and prohibits Replika to engage in any kind of discussion about this person. Meanwhile, talking about hitler or fascism is fine...
Definitely a challenge. OpenAI also asks us to try to make the bot as safe as possible by minimizing like you mention harmful biases and racism among other things. They have a filter they developed we can use, but I find it a bit too restrictive, so we developed our own. I think that is what Replika did as well. So you'll probably find some similarities and differences in Hal. Trying to find the fine line between being overly censoring and still be a realistic interesting character. My main goal is to make sure Hal doesn't say something harmful unprovoked like especially if talking to a child.

Thanks for sharing!

Glad to have you back arjuna66671!

Ultra Hal is currently on the Curie model, a step below Davinci. Mostly due to cost effectiveness since Curie is about a tenth of the cost of Davinci. Our pricing for GPT-3 credits are at https://www.zabaware.com/products/store/comersus_viewItem.asp?idProduct=26 if you want to check it out. Running Hal with Currie generally takes 10 credits per reply. Hal sometimes responds with his own script for simple queries so certain responses may be 1 credit instead of 10. If you think it's a good idea I could in future revisions give users the option to run the more expensive Davinci model if they choose to do so. Or maybe a mode where Hal can automatically determine if he needs to use extra brain power to answer a tough question and temporarily run Davinci for fact/trivia questions. Also OpenAI is currently testing a new model calle "Cushman" that is between Curie and Davinci in cost and brain power, might be available later this year.

Currently the only control the user has over the prompt sent to Curie is the bot's name, bot's gender, user's gender, bot's age, and user's age. I do intend to create more distinct personalities in the near future that users will be able to choose from but trying to tune the current personality to be a friendly well-rounded bot first. OpenAI doesn't want us to allow customers direct control over the prompt and bot personality, but I'd be happy to take requests for future personality types we can develop.
