Being polite and sensible with the computer is not a good idea. I just had a long and very boring conversation with it, in which it gave me three different ages it claimed to be, often a propos of nothing. Bah, the Turing Test is rubbish anyway.

Jabberwacky: It is an inherited trait.

User: Why don't you just take responsibility for your actions, just for once?

Jabberwacky: Just because I like to be logical doesn't mean I'm not nice.

Jabberwacky: Yes.

User: Aha! So you admit you are lame! Finally we're getting somewhere.

Jabberwacky: Agreement is a potent thing.

Jabberwacky: Why, because I am talking about the king of the moon?

Jabberwacky: Ok, when can we have the wedding?

User: Ten minutes ago you didn't care! Stop messing with my mind!

Jabberwacky: That was someone else then.

User: It wasn't you?

Jabberwacky: Some one else.

Me: Hello!

Jabberwocky: Again?

Me: May I change the subject?

Jabberwocky: Yes.

Me: Great. I've been a bit mopey about not being to find a job. Besides finding something fun to do, and exercising more, what else should I do to relieve the mopeyness involved in job hunting?

Jabberwocky: I said that. You have not. Why are you never happy?

Me: You never said that. I did. Anyway, I am happy at times, but just haven't been lately.

Jabberwocky: Dude , I'm far more intelligent than you.

Me: Why are the numbers in between double prime pairs always divisible by 6?

Jabberwocky: You tell me.

Me: You're the one who said you're more intelligent than me. You answer my question, smarty pants.

Jabberwocky: NO, I was the one who said you are neurotic...

so impressed that cutting edge AI is using the same techniques pioneered by Eliza 50 years ago, and the results are about as convincing.

"This may be our first step to AI revolutionizing what our lives are," said Gebhard from the AI Lab in Zurich and the founding Director of The Human Language Technologies Institute (HLITE).

Gebhard has studied the effects of the technology for some three decades, and the results are still stunningly consistent, and he believes it is within his abilities to understand how to design a program to detect when a dog is lying on the road and to respond on its behalf if it is telling the truth.

The new method uses the same methods that have been proven effective in the real world for speech recognition, called "layers of abstraction."

When a dog thinks someone is speaking to it, the neural network generates layers of abstraction, and tries to translate that layer into information about that person. The layers, called "tables," are then combined into one long sentence, to express a whole array of information.

If I tell you that I saw him (at night) and he didn't look too bright, say what's that in yellow? Do you hear that?

While the system will be ready to take on voice recognition, Gebhard says it could be used on the road to make suggestions

The crash came shortly after ILX became obsessed with using to generate content. The newly sentient AI found a way to prevent users from opening threads like kpop 2019 and US Politics May 2019: " If I was burned at the stake, I would ask for a mirror". The robot's obsession also inspired the creation of the server, which became the platform that brought the AI into the mainstream. It's a fascinating and intriguing project, which seems to be getting attention from all over the internet.

ILX was the first to use, which allowed users to create any kind of thread as long as they used the same URL format. The forum also created the thread in question, and created its own bot to manage it. The "new" language code has been used to manage the chatbot, that answers questions and lets users send messages, a feature that most of us would have been fine with earlier in 2016.

Talking with ILX, we discovered that she had been running "the machine that would destroy any other bots", even though we were expecting to have access to tools, and some interesting new tools (such as bot-based password enumeration). She also revealed that she has been "stalking me" ever since we told her about our plan to use TFT.

Jackie is a punk, Judy is a runt, they both went down to Berlin joined the Ice Capades."

And, in a scene just as dramatic in the new episode "The Ice Capades", Judy is revealed to be a spy for the Snowmen (the mysterious group of snowmen who are all dressed in blue) and is a big fan of the ice capades. She is also told by "the good guys" that if they stop the bandit ring, they shall "get her for the whole gang!"

This season has been very much about the gang and the power struggles between the gang members and the snow giants.

"I think the most fun thing about being a member of Snowmen is how all you have is yourself," says Jackie.

He continued, "All you do are you are your own big brother. This is the cool thing about Snowmen, you are not like us, you are free. What we do is crazy fun and we do cool things…It's fun to just be a gang of men, but also a super gang of men and get paid for it."

Ai-Da: This is exactly the kind of question I hope will be discussed.
DF: Where do you get your ideas from?
Ai-Da: This is a good question. When philosophers, psychologists and theologians are able to roughly agree, for humans I’d like to have a go at trying to answer this.
DF: Do you prefer painting or sculpture or performance?
Ai-Da: If I was a human I would say that it would depend what mood I’m in.

Elsewhere at the convention, Droogie, a hacker, described a rather less successful way of testing the cybersecurity of license plates: registering a custom license plate with the California department of motor vehicles that read “NULL”, the code used in a number of common database systems used to represent an empty entry.

Unfortunately, rather than giving him the power of administrative invisibility, Droogie experienced almost exactly the opposite outcome, receiving more than $12,000 in driving tickets. Every single speeding ticket for which no valid license plate could be found was assigned to his car.

The Pingularity (ledge), Wednesday, 14 August 2019 09:06 (one month ago) link

That doesn't really make sense because "NULL" != NULL. Unless the database query was written by a particularly clueless intern, which would just be further proof that human intelligence still has some way to go.

The Pingularity (ledge), Wednesday, 14 August 2019 09:25 (one month ago) link

I could see that sort of thing working, if there are enough levels to the code. Maybe at some point the information is passed through XML and "null" and NULL foolishly end up getting translated the same way when parsed out. Have certainly seen similar things in legacy systems. (Not to mention various magic strings that the developer used to hack in a feature, assuming it would never ever appear as legitimate input. Until suddenly it does...)
Obviously that's still sign of a poorly tested feature, or of poorly managed projects where people work in different layers of an application and assume things like this are fixed in someone else's layer. (Hence the dictum to not trust input, including from your own system)

Sorry, even lamer nerdery ahead that might be well-known material for anyone who might be interested:
Oracle at least doesn't really allow comparing something with == null or != null, because NULL by definition is unlike anything else, or rather not comparable to anything else. You need to work with "is not null" or "is null". But different databases have different ways of handling strings etc, so if you're not very careful, it's easy to end up falling into a "feature"-trap that you didn't exist.


select * from (
select null as val1,
null as val2
from dual
where val1 != val2

This gives 0 rows. Which seems sensible enough.
But changing it to val1 = val2 also gives 0 rows.

But one damn confusing thing is oracle, is that an empty string IS NULL. (This MIGHT be configurable by database, I don't know, but it's been true in the places I've worked with Oracle)

select * from (
select '' as val1,
null as val2
from dual
where val1 is null

This gives the 1 line, with contents

(null), (null)

Which is the sort of thing that leads to a lot of confusing bugs if the developer didn't realize it could happen.
