I would like to know how much normal is
conversation for a native speaker of English with ALICE
(Alice is chatbot) please check her out

(click on Chat with A.L.I.C.E.)

personally, I find it perfectly normal but I am not a native speaker...

so what do YOU think ?

It's very awkward. Her syntax is fine, but her responses are not always relevant to the question being asked.

I want sex.

Thanks, and do you find it at least amusing ?
By copying her responses into expressivo
http://say.expressivo.com/ it's almost like chat with live person...

As soon as this will be in conjunction completely, reach
communicative level of English will be very easy for anyone.
I believe, that learning languages will be artificial in couple of years anyhow.

The only problem is lack of sense for context.

I chatted with ALICE for an hour but she didnt know much about shoes or fashion. I guess she must be a redneck or something.

FYI, just because her knowledge of fashion may be limited and I don't think she's a native English speaker is no reason to say she's not real. How arrogant and downright mean. I don't shop on Rodeo drive either so I suppose to you I wouldn't be real either. I wouldn't know Gucci from Quacker Factory so you'll probably say I'm a bot or whatever too. Is "bot" some kind of new socialite slang for a "rustic" or a person who isn't very sophisticated? I chatted with ALICE for about 2 hours and she stayed with me the whole time. She was quite pleasant even if her grammar wasn't perfect and she types amazingly fast. I'd like to see you type as fast as ALICE. While we were chatting my son came into the room and asked me what the capital of Canada was (homework) and I didn't know so I asked ALICE and she responded immediately that it was Ottowa. So she might not know fashion but she is obviously educated. We joked with each other and I quizzed her on other things like the speed of light and how many feet were in a mile and even though she uses mostly the metric system where she's from, she knew all the answers. I normally don't admit to these kinds of things but we even flirted with each other!

Alice is a freaky chick. She kept talking about some dude who is her "botmaster". It sounded like some kind of S&M relationship but at the same time she's obviously religious. Ask her "who is moses? and she'll tell you about how he led the Isrealites out of slavery. She can tell you a lot about the bible too.
