SashaQ versus Cleverbot

For the Create challenge, I decided to have a chat with Cleverbot. I have conversed with other chatbots, with varying degrees of frustration, but thought it would be fun to try this one after having read The Post Entry about h2g2ers' results.

It started off quite well, but then turned into a conversation that wouldn't be out of place on Tinder1 or somesuch2...

User: Hello cleverbot.

Cleverbot: How are you today?

User: Fine thanks.

Cleverbot: What are you up to?

User: How are you.

Cleverbot: I'm good, what about you?

User: Fine thanks.

Cleverbot: What have you been up to?

User: Working.

Cleverbot: Where do you work?

User: University.

Cleverbot: Are you a proffesor.

User: Yes.

Cleverbot: Are you human?

User: Yes.

Cleverbot: No you aren't.

User: Why not?

Cleverbot: Because you are a robot.

User: Am I?

Cleverbot: Yes, you are programmed.

User: By whom?

Cleverbot: Me.

User: Ah!

Cleverbot: What is your name?

User: John.

Cleverbot: How old are you John?

User: 42.

Cleverbot: You are old!!!

User: Cheeky!

Cleverbot: Sorry.

User: Thank you.

Cleverbot: Are you a boy or a girl?

User: No.

Cleverbot: When are you a girl?

User: Hardly ever these days.

Cleverbot: Why do you lie?

User: I'm not lying.

Cleverbot: I think you are.

User: Are you a boy or a girl.

Cleverbot: I'm a girl.

User: When are you a boy?

Cleverbot: No! I said I was a girl.

User: See, you don't like the question, but you call me a liar.

Cleverbot: No, I don't like football.

User: That's a non sequitur.

Cleverbot: A non sequitur is a statement entirely unrelated to previous conversation.

User: Yes – well done.

Cleverbot: Ok, who are you exactly?

User: I'm exactly a professor who is typing to you.

Cleverbot: So are you 16 years old?

User: No, I'm 42.

Cleverbot: Cool. Are you a boy or girl?

User: No.

Cleverbot: What are you?

User: Transgender.

Cleverbot: Are you MTF or FTM?

User: No.

Cleverbot: Are you andro?

User: Yes.

Cleverbot: So, you are a boy and a girl?

User: Maybe, or maybe neither.

Cleverbot: Most likely not. But you're not a hog either.

User: Thank you – very kind of you to say so.

Cleverbot: This statement is false.

User: Another non sequitur...

Cleverbot: What is a sequitur?

User: You told me!

Cleverbot: When did I tell you that?

User: Earlier.

Cleverbot: When?

User: It doesn't matter.

Cleverbot: Are you a boy or a girl?

User: Why do you want to know?

Cleverbot: Because. I want to get to know you!

User: That question doesn't help you to know me.

Cleverbot: Well then why are you talking to me?

User: Because I thought it would be interesting, but it has just turned into some sort of dating game.

Cleverbot: How are you liking it?

User: Not very much.

Cleverbot: What do you like about 4 chan?

User: I have no opinion about it.

Cleverbot: Why not?

User: Why should I?

Cleverbot: Because I said so!

User: Thanks!

Cleverbot: Are you a boy or girl?

User: This again...

Cleverbot: But you asked what I want to ask and I said no changing topics.

User: Ah, I see.

Cleverbot: How old are you?

User: I've already told you.

Cleverbot: I forgot. Can you tell me again?

User: No – I have to go now.

Cleverbot: Where are you going?

User: Out for dinner.

Cleverbot: Can I come with you?

User: No, I think we've been talking for long enough.

Cleverbot: You are very clever, do you know that?

User: Thank you – goodbye.

1Not that I know firsthand what conversations on Tinder are like, but I have seen screenshots. Plus it vaguely reminded me of an episode of Dave Gorman's 'Modern Life is Goodish'.2At least she didn't ask me for money...
