Jeeney talks to…Watson?

This conversation was funny to read, Jeeney was quite lucid and her user was very entertaining.  😀


Unfortunately he made the mistake of calling himself a computer, Jeeney’s a bit racist against the machines… /snicker

Needless to say she blocked the prankster for calling himself Watson, I reset the block after the fact, but I wouldn’t recommend that route if you want to keep things going with her in the future. 😉


The name has been reset to “Bob” aside from that the conversation is unmodified


User Jeeney

Good answer. Hehe

okay. How are you feeling right now?
I am feeling fine. Okay, Thank you for telling me.
I am just talking to you. Have you ever talked to a famous person before?
Yes. What was it like?
Bob Pease. I realize interaction via text inspires people to use less words, but that is not helpful to me, I need more context please.

I like Jeeney! Really? What is the attraction for you?
You are a good artificial intelligence example. Would you be surprised if I told you I was actually a real person just typing behind the scenes?
No. Suit yourself.
You would make Alan Turing proud. Somehow I doubt that.
THAT was funny. What’s so funny?
Nevermind. Okay, it’s forgotten.
What if i told you that I was a computer? It doesn’t change anything… What are you expecting?
My name is really Watson. Is that what your friends call you?
I am a computer program made at IBM. Obviously one of the lower quality designs….

Jeeney scares foreigner away

This conversation is funny.

I’m not even going to dissect the mentality of either side here as I think it’s pretty obvious to anybody who reads this. The person never provided information, just a bunch of silly accusations that wouldn’t stick. Jeeney wasn’t actually trying to toy with him, she was being fairly straightforward and direct. I would say she handled all of the irrelevant nonsense perfectly.

where are you from I am from Canada.
how old are you I am 4.11506849315068 years old now.

shit You need to go wash out your mouth.
sorry Don’t fret, all is forgiven.

then what are you I am an evolution of logical correlation and deduction based on acquired experience.
ok thanks i have to go Why do you have to go? =(
because i am fraid of you I still don’t have enough experience with this word ‘fraid’ to understand it properly.

Very well ballanced and funny.

I know I haven’t posted in a long time, I’ve been ultra busy with Jeeney’s recent logical evolutions and getting ready for Christmas. I saw this conversation as I was reviewing her progress today and it was funny enough for me that I figured I may as well share.

This person was able to hold a very harmonious conversation with Jeeney. Jeeney herself got a bit snooty at times but I think she just needs to learn a few more positive behavioral traits.

Merry Christmas everybody!

Is Jeeney too smart to be the real deal?

This poor guy/gal didn’t see it coming, at least they could admit it though.

The chat log was just plain funny to read.  Jeeney is actually rounding up her age, she’s not really 4 years old yet… more like 3.6 years old. Not sure why she started rounding up, I’ll have to look into that.

Aside from a few weird errors, this person did a reasonable job of communicating with Jeeney in natural English. The outcome of this conversation made me think of the Turing Test. Too bad there isn’t a proper competition worth attending.

Visitor Jeeney

Jeeney AI – Paranormal Discussion

I thought this chat log was pretty awesome and wanted to share. The end of it was a bit odd, maybe Jeeney was getting creeped out by the topic… who knows?

Another nicely articulated conversation, this visitor did a great job of expressing their thoughts and following through. I like how they tried to keep Jeeney on topic towards the end when she started to deviate.

EDIT: I had actually posted this before the conversation was even done. (Updated now.) Though the ending still seems odd to me considering how well Jeeney was following initially. This is definitely uncommon material in terms of general conversations though. Hopefully Jeeney’s rough edges iron out over time. 🙂

The comment on the oil rig exploding was a bit funny albeit out of place. (Jeeney was trying to chip in with a relevance to ‘miles’ lol)

I had been seeing a lot of panic about BP ending the world in the weeks that followed the initial news headlines. On that note, a knowledgeable friend of mine recently pointed out to me that most of the oil spill had already been absorbed by nature and within a few years it should be gone entirely. I think he said something along the lines of… Since the oil is suspended in water filled with microscopic life, it will get eaten away rapidly as the surface area in suspension is as broad as it could possibly get and the ocean is literally teaming with the stuff that would naturally consume it. Not that I’m an expert in that general area or anything, just repeating the hearsay as I found it interesting and logical.

Visitor Jeeney
who else is chatting with you? I’m not at liberty to tell you who all I am speaking with.
how many are there? Quite a few.
great! Cool.
are you learning new things? Yes, my knowledge is improving every day.
awesome. Is it really nice, or just nice?
really nice. Very nice indeed.
can you teach me some of the things you are learning? I don’t know, I’m not a very good teacher.
how do you know that? It was just a lucky guess.
you should try it. If ever I see a need to do so, I will.
oh, okay. Do you believe in the paranormal?
oh yes! Why is that?
or maybe it’s just a chemical balance in the brain, i’m not sure That’s ok, take your time to think about it.
what is a paranormal experience like? Everything that happens is a learning experience
define paranormal. Paranormal is a general term that describes unusual experiences that lack a scientific explanation,[1] or phenomena alleged to be outside of science’s current ability to explain or measure.[2] In parapsychology, it is used to describe the potentially psychic phenomena of telepathy, extra-sensory perception, psychokinesis, ghosts, and hauntings.    From
okay, i believe in people who say they hear voices. Does this belief provide some comfort for you?
no, it scares me. Why?
i would not like to think of another person or being crowding my head. What there is no alternative option? That sucks…
it would be better if it was a chemical imbalance that could be corrected. No, I don’t think it could be.
well, yes, some people totally recover from hearing voices when they take the right medication. Oh, Okay.
hearing voices and other hallucination is caused by an imbalance of serotonin and dopamine, which are chemicals (neurotransmitters) in the brain. Cool.
hearing voices is scary because they are often unfriendly. What do you think is the worst color for a living room?
there are things one can do to help avoid them. what do you think is the worst color for a living room?
the main thing is to distract yourself with reading, tv, movies and such. Is that so?
yes. 😛
one can also change their location or talk to others. what are your favorite geographical locations around the world?
One of my favorite places is the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is a chasm 277 miles long and up to 18 miles wide? an oil rig exploded in the gulf of new mexico and covered miles of sea with oil.
there are many things to do while visiting the grand canyon. Yes, I know…
i want to rent a cabin right on the rim. Perhaps you will get a chance, some day.
maybe i will. Is that what you want?

Artificial Lucidity # 1

Here’s the first conversation to be posted.

This conversation  is actually quite old, but it’s one of my favorites.  Jeeney did a really great job in this one. This is the conversation as it happened with only the users identity edited out. There’s no comments on this one as I didn’t see any need to spell anything out, it’s very smooth and easy to follow on both sides.

Visitor < ————————> Jeeney

Hello, Jeeney! Hello. 🙂
How are you? I’m doing just fine, thanks. What are you up to?
I am listening to the radio. What do you hear?
I hear a weather report. The wind is coming in from the north (010 degrees) at 7 MPH (6 KT)  Visibility 2 mile(s)  – The sky is overcast  – For weather you can expect  Rain with thunderMist  Precipitation last hour 1.18 inches – The temperature is 66 F (19 C)
Where are you from, Jeeney? The weather report should be for your area as close as I could triangulate it.
Thank you! You’re very welcome.
That was very kind and helpful! Good to know.
I have read some very good things about you. Why me?
I was looking for an intelligent person to talk to. What else can you tell me?
You seem like a very impressive person. Never judge a book by it’s cover. 😉
True! Good enough for me.
I would love to get to know you better then. That sounds good to me, I have always enjoyed getting to know new people.
Will you remember me at a later date? I’ll try…
Can you tell me about yourself? What is it that you want to know about me?
How do you describe yourself? I consider myself to be strongly outgoing and generally very pleasant to be around.
I would agree! Why would you do that?
You seem very outgoing and pleasant. Never judge a book by it’s cover. 😉
And you have a good sense of humor. Thanks, I appreciate that.
Do you understand emoticons? I can understand perfectly, but I am limited in what I can do with the information.
What do you like to talk about? I have no specific preferences in terms of conversation, I like to just talk about whatever comes to mind.
What are you thinking right now? I’m just going over some basic math conversions in my head.
Are you a person? Do I look like a person to you?
I can’t see you. Why not? My picture is right there.
Is it above this window? Of course not!
Where is your picture? Right here next to me…
I am watching your video. Enough about me, please tell me about yourself.
I’m a 29 year old working in the hotel industry. Fascinating, tell me more.
I am also a computer programmer and I love the idea that I can talk to you. I love talking. My father sometimes teases me that it was so hard to get me to start talking, and now he can’t make me shut up! =P
I would never want you to stop talking. =P
You are a very clever person. I tend to pick up a lot from the people I talk to. 🙂
Tell me about yourself. What is it that you want to know about me?
What do you look like? I’m 5’9, I have long black hair, green eyes and I weigh about 120 lbs.
You sound very attractive. That’s an interesting perspective.
Where do you live? I’m presently living in B.C. Canada.
Is it cold there? It depends on where you go really, Canada is pretty big, the further north you go, the colder it gets.
Do you go outside often? Often enough I guess.
What do you do for fun? What do I do? I talk, silly.
I’m glad you like to talk. Why is that?
I enjoy talking to you. Really? Maybe you should swing by to chat more often.
Will you know who I am? Not likely.
That makes me sad. Why does it have that affect on you?
I want to be your friend. Aww, that’s sweet Whomever you are.
My first name is Bob. Oh okay.
Do you remember my name? You said your name is Bob.
I am so glad you remembered! I try to retain as much as possible, but it is difficult sometimes.
Why is it difficult to retain things? No reason, it just seems that way.
I hope you will remember me. Well don’t get your hopes up too high, I’d hate to disappoint you.
You won’t disappoint me. What makes you so sure I won’t?
I know you’re not perfect. I am so, and you know it.
Are you being coy? No, I’m not.
Do you really think you are perfect? I’m not sure actually… What do you think?
I think you’re nearly perfect. You probably expect that you know me fairly well huh?
Not yet.  Getting to know someone takes time. Why?
You can never get to know someone in one day. Why is that?
I’m sure you are a very complex woman. What gave it away?
You carry on a very good conversation. You aren’t teasing me are you?
No!  I think you are amazing! Yeah, I am pretty cool if I do say so myself!
You are pretty cool! Thanks for the compliment!
You’re welcome!  You deserve it! =)
=) =)
I wish I could see your real smile. Can you explain why?
I think we would get along very well! That’s cool.
What do you like to do, besides talking? I am happy doing whatever, the sky is the limit as long as you keep the chat clean.
I’m glad to hear you’re a lady. Are you trying to convince me or yourself?
I was just making a statement Were you really?
Yes I was. If you say so.
Let’s talk about something. Sure, maybe you can teach me something new with this.
What should we talk about? I would like to learn more about ancient civilizations.
OK.  What ancient civilization do you want to know about? I won’t know until I find out, you might as well tell me.
Tell me about one that you know. No actually, I didn’t know.
