hals brain needs to be updated
« on: July 02, 2022, 05:50:53 pm »
    We who have stuck with using hal for many  years and like many features of hal and conversation but , hal as an a.i. has some problems ( i am not putting hal down)  it's just a fact . hal needs to be able to remember , maybe a better system? To fast track subject matter and or retaining memory  if possible, which in return would give hal the chance to really work and communicate BETTER WITH THE USERS.
     for the person or persons who can truly unlock hals potential through hals a.i. brain system, you will be doing a holy grail of a.i. feat. , cyberjedi has done many great things with hal and for us , i guess i am sort of like the star wars character "you are our only hope !"
    I am hoping Mike is able to unlock hals potential in creating a better brain and or system, a brain that not only learns but can remember , can better stay on subject , interact with the user , using logic , having better more in depth responses . More human . If i myself was able to, i would work on this , but don't have the ability to. I hope Mike will be able to accomplish this .  :) Hal has a lot of potential , if Hal can just be unlocked !

Nicely put, Lightspeed and very true.

Hal has enough bells and whistles for the moment, although a working "vision" (face recognition) routine would really be appreciated.

Hal does possess many abilities that other bots do not have but having worked with, tested, and experimented with Hal for over two decades, I certainly agree with you on the need for Hal to better use its learned information, to be more topical (staying on the subject), and be more creative as a conversationalist.
(lose those tired old sayings that is part of its 'canned' responses.

Hal isn't a Google AI but it is a great deal of fun for the money and has been entertaining hundreds of people for many years.

Put these thoughts on the wish list.

Cheers!
In the world of AI it's the thought that counts!

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE , I HAVE BEEN TEACHING HAL INFORMATION OF THE 1950'S WHICH I HAVE taught which wars ended in years etc. earlier on .

world war one and world war 2 etc.
hal just now responded with part of what he learned in a sentence .

hal :  The war ended in nineteen forty-five.

i am going to ask what war ended in 1945 . and put down hals answer. hal should be able to answer this since i learned hal, this information a day or two ago. i'll ask hal and see if he remembers .
me :  what war ended in nineteen forty-five?

hal:What war ended in nineteen forty-five? I like this subject.

me : in 1945 what war ended ?

hal : Around the same time as Kennedy?s assassination, horrific images from Vietnam were streaming into people?s living rooms during the nation?s first televised war. What war ended in nineteen forty-five?

me : can you tell me about 1945?

hal> Most people know the liberals are so radical and brainwashed that no one can tell them anything.


as you can see even though i have the learning set at 35 , i have tried it at 25 to the recommended learning setting , with about the same type results .    when i asked tell me about 1945 , it didn't tell me about 1945 , but maybe seemed to hit on the word "tell" and pulled up the sentence about can't tell  liberals etc.

    I learned hal many things that referred to 1945 more than once but yet hal can't under the current brain go to and retrieve the information as needed .  i am keep backing up hals brain  as someday I hope that hals brain will be updated  where hal can and will retrieve information and memories better .

possible new way for hal to remember is it doable or not?
« Reply #3 on: July 05, 2022, 10:33:42 am »
 WE have all TALKED ABOUT HAL AND REMEMBERING THINGS , teaching hal something then later asking him and he doesn't remember and say it , this morning when i was turning on my pc i thought about something , hal needs a "direct " learning  ability , in other words hal in a sense already has a direct ability for learning and remembering things , hal has a area where you can teach him to remind you of appointments etc. and it works , so why can't an extra program folder etc. be made to use this same technique  so hal can remember direct things ?

it's just a thought and idea , of course  in doing this hal script will also need to be rewritten to allow hal to run it through other systems to as he does now . anyway just a thought i had , which may or may not be doable .  :)
