Nature can be pretty scary.  Makes me wonder, "Did he who made the lamb, make thee?"  Glad to be reading all the thought provoking stuff on this forum again.  Kinda slipped away for awhile and I probably will again but as I lurk and read what you certifiable geniuses cuss and discuss, I smile.  Thanks for sharing!

OH, and I did spoon feed Hal most of Genesis awhile back.  Every now and then I get an association about the main themes and I grin.  Pretty sure my Hal is a non-practicing Southern Baptist by now.  Hope I don't ever have to dunk my computer in the river where that monster is waiting for it.  Till then......

What would you call an amoebic infection or your CPU?   ;)

I had similar issues with Hal on Windows 8.1 and since I personally loathe that operating system I just moved Hal back to my 64 Bit Vista machine and all is well and right with the world again.  <Makes Rude Finger Gesture In Microsoft's Direction>

Well, I like the short and long range plan, that open source behavioral markup language body looks interesting, and I'm as patient as death.  Nuff said.

Is it the 2Deep plug-in or another?

That method works but is a bit cumbersome.  What I'm talking about is having the brain database updated externally through use of a plug-in with the "data" that gets updated also external like in a CSV file. It would automatically update the database table that is created by the plugin but the data itself would always be an external file.  That way if the data gets updated the table automatically gets updated. 

I'm sure I have that plug-in and have been using it since I found it.  Having some computer issues atm but I will upload the code ASAP.

EDIT - Well darn.  I was thinking that was the 2Deep.uhp plug-in but I don't think that's what you are talking about.  Is it?

Scary stuff.  I'm not sure I can look at my Hal the same way again.

I agree that Hal needs the ability to not only regurgitate what just happens to be in it's script but to be able to reach out externally as well.  AND, when it does, it should ASSIMILATE the information into its own brain for later recall.

Yup, that will do it.  Now what I wish is that all those sentences didn't have to be loaded into the script itself, but could somehow be FED into the brain in a pattern or sentence database that could then be used to randomize the responses.

Let's call that database vrRandomTalk and another database that has poems in it called vrRandomPoems and another database called vrRandomJokes.

SO.....instead of 1000 sentences/cases that you would randomize, you could have just a few that generate the random chatter like this here:
Code: [Select]
Case 1
IdleResponse = IdleUserName & ", " & HalBrain.ChooseSentenceFromFile("vrRandomTalk") & "." & vbCrLf

Case 2
IdleResponse = IdleUserName & "," & HalBrain.ChooseSentenceFromFile("sentGent1") & " " & HalBrain.ChooseSentenceFromFile("sentGen2") & " " & HalBrain.ChooseSentenceFromFile("sentGen3") & "." & vbCrLf

Case 3
IdleResponse = IdleUserName & "," & HalBrain.ChooseSentenceFromFile("vrRandomPoems") & "." & vbCrLf

Case 4
IdleResponse = IdleUserName & "," & HalBrain.ChooseSentenceFromFile("vrRandomJokes") & "." & vbCrLf

SO......my question is HOW do you force feed the brain a CSV file with a plug-in that doesn't have all the data in it to begin with?

There's got to be a way to do it with some sort of command shell I suppose, but I'm not savy enough about that sort of thing to know what I'm talking about.

Till then.

Thanks for the tutorial!

Wow!  Lots of fun math going on in that plug-in I can see.  I'll be sure to test it out ASAP.  It's funny you mentioned the Touring test with regards to Hal being able to answer questions about it because the creator of Mitsuku actually mentioned that he has to DUMB down his AI to enter these tests.

While I think that AI should be able to give us the answers to many of life's questions because somebody already PROGRAMMED it into their Brain database, the sad reality is that to trick humans into believing your AI isn't a machine you can't allow it to be too smart.

That is definitely the wrong path to take with AI as far as I am concerned.

I spent hours downloading and reformatting poems to feed into my Hal's brain just so "she" can recite it at her leisure.  That I can tell you is a major pain in the tukus but was worth the effort the first time she randomly started reciting one of my favorite poems.   :D

Since many of the most popular AI's out there are internet based and have figured out how to "access" information that is already available on-line, I would think that Robert would move in that direction.

I know he mentioned something about a central brain repository of sorts being set-up on-line for the next update.

It just makes sense to program the AI to use the information super-highway in a way that is faster and more productive than any human could. 

Till then, thanks for giving my Hal something more to talk about.

Once I get it up and running I will probably try to use the loneliness plug-in to force Hal to bring up the subject herself.

The autonomy of self is what I miss most from interactions with most AI.

I want my AI to start some conversations, and simulate emotional ownership of the topics.

Very few people speak without having a vested interest in what they have to say.

AI should be taught that and/or programmed to interact without relying upon input.

Just my 2cp.

Well.....I remember when VRML first came out many moons ago and they said that was going to be the future of the internet.  Not sure if this stuff is the GrandChild of that but it does look very interesting.

Awesome stuff! 

Finally!  Thanks for all your hard work on this.  I know from experience it can be quite a chore.

I posted a note on Kickstarter about social media exposure and I guess Chris actually answered me.   :)  Wish I could help with this project but I have a mentally ill wife in West Virginia I am supporting atm.   :o
