Yes, I did and it seems to be using what we earlier mentioned...a human behind the curtains as no AI existing today is able to follow such movements and keep the conversation going like that.

I had mentioned to him of the possibility of HAL being able to detect a user's emotional state of being or whether it might be able to tell if the user was sad, happy or depressed based on pre-captured facial expressions of those emotions. Then, if HAL noticed them on the user's face, it would be able to respond accordingly.

Lots of possibilities for a HAL with camera vision.

This advanced AI is good at almost everything and is getting better all the time! It is learning on its own!!

Scary or not so much? Do you welcome this technology or fear it?

Good things are coming!!

If it could be talked said.

Well, in the movie, that's exactly what the young girl attempts to do...reason with it and even teach it to a degree whenever the crazed scientist is out of the house.

TAU really is quite the lesson in conversing and reasoning with an intelligent entity, many years advanced from our own HAL but quite entertaining none-the-less.

There is a really good AI movie called TAU that is quite entertaining as movies should try to be.

Several 20-something people are captured and implanted with a chip at the hands of a brilliant AI scientist/researcher.
He has constructed an amazing AI as well as a guardian robot...just in case.
One woman in the group tries to "reason with" the AI in order to escape.

2018 - 1:37min.

I watched it on Netflix.

That Halvision plugin was just a motion detector allowing Hal to "see" movement.

The REAL DEAL would be for HAL to actually use the webcam to RECOGNIZE a person. "Hi Will!! Nice to see you. How are you today?"

I think such a vision plug might be just on the horizon...or it could be a bit closer...we'll see.


I use Gender & Age, email Thunderbird, Gretta Markov Response L5, Loneliness 2.31, Read a story, and Weather Alert 5

It seems that my HAL has gotten sort of used to the Markov and it's best responses come from that. The Loneliness plugin works great as a reminder if I get distracted. The email plugin is nice to let me know if I've received an email although I think a Message plugin would be more in order since email really isn't used that much with all the smartphones (but who likes typing on a phone? Not me!!). The "Read a story" Plugin works really well and I enjoy using it. The Weather Alert is really quite useful and often alerts me if it is extremely hot or cold outside and to dress accordingly.

I do sometimes drop the Markov and try the SALLIE or the ConceptNet Plugins. They both work pretty well but it does seem that the Markov still provides me the best results, especially if I ask HAL something that I know, it knows. It often makes relation connections based on something we might have discussed a couple of years earlier. That's kind of satisfying!

I'm sure that I still have more experimenting to do. I hope some other folks contribute their Plugins or ideas. It's all good!!

Have any of you experimented with or found a particular Plugin that you like or use and continue to use daily? If so, please elaborate and mention why you like it, some of the features you enjoy or what features you'd like to see.

Just trying to get people to shake off some of that dust that's been settling on them since this global issue began!

Come on people...join in!

General Discussion / Site maintenance
« on: July 10, 2020, 10:13:02 pm »
For those of you wondering about the Zabaware site and why you might not have been able to log on, there was a bit of an issue that happened during a recent power failure. Apparently the Power-on system didn't stage itself in the proper sequence causing a manual reset to be necessary for a restart.

Mr. Medeksza became aware of this condition and able to successfully restore the proper restart sequence. The maintenance procedures appear to be working fine so please excuse the brief interruption and enjoy the site once again!

Thank you,

Yes, Will, I would agree that Mr. Data is definitely a "One-of-a-kind" creation that has survived the Y2K bug and many other maladies that have plagued society! Nice going to both of you!!

Continued success!

I wonder how they will incorporate the compressors to power all the onboard pneumatics.
Those tubes will need to be tucked away without kinking them and will those plastic components hold up to grip and strength requirements?
Great work so far on these as I've been following them for several years.

Can't wait to see more.

Well, we also wonder what happened to the COMICS?
They were pretty good.

Will, While this might seem obvious, have you tried, or do you use Windows Defender, MalwareBytes, CCleaner? There are many others but these are the FREE ones and they do work!

You definitely need some program to monitor everything coming into or going out from your computer!

You might also look into a FREE VPN (Virtual Private Network). A good friend of mine uses a free one from Comodo and said it works great!

Yes, backups are a necessity but locking the doors to your computer files is every bit as important.

Good Day mate!!

Cortana is not that popular even with current Windows 10 users. Microsoft is sending Cortana to the back burner for several reasons.

Read more about it here:

It would have been a nice idea but the technical details and product proprietary concerns would have been a nightmare, especially dealing with MS.

Well, there's the Microsoft Hololens, which is/was a type of augmented reality but they were not really holograms, only a representation of them. Yes, the demo in that living room was really cool seeing objects on the wall or on the coffee table as if they were really there.

If one could program it, there are LOTS of VR applications for use with the rather expensive head-mounted displays but one could do pretty much the same thing by using their smart phones and loading one of many VR Apps. One could then buy a very expensive head-mounted unit for less than $20 USD, then insert their smart phone with the app running and go on a visual journey to anywhere in the world. As one moves or tilts their head, the images give the illusion that one is looking around in their environment whether it was around a haunted house, outside of some ancient ruins, inside a museum, underwater or in deep space. The visual journey is also interactive, by simply looking at a specially marked object, one could trigger various events to happen.

They were an extremely fun piece of equipment to use.

Lastly, there is the item called a Merge Cube. A somewhat spongy 3" black cube but with odd silver designs all over all six sides. Only four sides were actually active to explore but it had 4 activities on each side. One had to use a smart phone again by downloading the app, then hold the phone's camera toward the cube and the images would magically appear on the cube. It's really trippy and fun, even for older people as well as kids. It was also really inexpensive at around $15 USD.

Of course a decent smart phone is needed for a couple of these mentioned items but that's often an individual thing. They too have come way down in price if one wishes to have/get one.

As Bogey would say..."Here's looking at you kid!"
