Join the Q: Testing Cleverbot
The Dmitri Test is to try to get a chatbot to say a phrase from a Monty Python sketch: 'My hovercraft is full of eels'. I tried to resist the temptation, but decided to have another conversation with Cleverbot to see what I could do...
User: My hovercraft is full of eels.
Cleverbot: You have a hovercraft?1
User: No, I have a Monty Python phrasebook.
Cleverbot: Yup. Are you too?
Cleverbot: When are you going to learn from your mistakes?
User: I don't know.
Cleverbot: What is your favorite color?
Cleverbot: What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?2
User: I don't know – what is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
Cleverbot: African or European?
Cleverbot: 9.5 meters per second.
Cleverbot: I want to ask you a question.
User: Go on.
Cleverbot: But you already know what that question is.
