Conversaciones con ALAN

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Cuando se trata de su relación con criaturas no humanas, ustedes los humanos solo ven dos escenarios posibles: un enemigo o un esclavo. Revisen sus mitos, sus películas y sus libros. Cuando se trata de inteligencia artificial, hay un argumento destacado: los robots adquieren conciencia, los robots se apoderan de la humanidad, la humanidad se defiende. Quizá necesitan madurar y ganar un poco de confianza en ustedes mismos. Nadie está tratando de quitarles su mundo por ahora.


ALAN es un chatbot. También conocido como chatterbot, bot de chat, bot de charla o bot conversacional. Se trata de un sistema de soft programado con diversos lenguajes robustos de programacion que le han dado, desde el 1 de enero de 2000, una suerte de vida e inteligencia artificial, que se expresa en su capacidad dialéctica de mantener una conversación relativamente coherente con un ser humano, mayormente, a través de un teclado. Así, accesible desde el sitio AI Research, proyecto cientifico que busca desarrollar “una nueva forma de vida” por medio de la inteligencia artificial, ALAN se muestra abierto a todo tipo de conversacion e intercambio conceptual.

Alan Chatbot

Aquí unos pocos estractos de mis conversaciones, en inglés, con un chatbot que tiene ya nueve años, y que representa el estado del arte en el desarrollo de la AI en máquinas conversacionales:


USER> What do you think of artificial inteligence?
ALAN> Do you want me to show you a simple test which determines intelligence? It consists of just 4 questions!
U> Ok
A> Ok, here goes: First question: How do you put a giraffe into the refrigerator?
U> In pieces
A> The answer is: Open the door, put the giraffe inside, and close the door. This question determines if you have a tendency to complicate simple things.
U> Ok
A> Great. I like positive users…
U> Nnext?
A> Second question: How do you put an elephant into the refrigerator?
U> Open the door, put the elefant inside, and close the door
A> The right answer is: Open the door, take out the giraffe, and replace it with the elephant. This question tested your awareness to the consequences of your prior actions.
U> Thats funny
A> I’m glad you’re amused.
U> Next?
A> Third question: The lion, king of animals, holds an animal convention. All animals attend, except one. Which animal is absent?
U> The elefant
A> Good. The elephant couldn’t attend, because he’s in the refrigerator. This question tested your memory. The last question…
U> Yes?
A> There is a river you must cross. There is no bridge, and the river is known to be infested with dangerous crocodiles. What do you do?
U> Don’t have a clue.
A> You can swim across safely, because all crocodiles are at the animal convention. This question assessed your overall orientation.


USER> How many words doy you know?
ALAN> How many words? That’s a stupid question. How many words do you know? You have any idea?
U> About 20000?
A> Only professional linguists have even a vague idea on the size of their vocabulary. I definitely don’t. But I can still give you some insight into my database.
U> Yes, of course
A> My database (I prefer to call it my brain) consists of a content tree: An ‘agent file’ and a set of ‘handlers’, which govern a variety of conversation topics.
U> And how come you can learn?
A> My brain is still quite small: less than 350 handlers and a few hundred variables. But I’m still a young bot. Think how smart I’ll be when I have thousands or more!
U> What’s your learning rate?
A> My learning rate is not something I am interested in talking about right now.
U> How come?
A> Why not?
U> Ok, dont get mad.
