If you went on reading the conversation trail and thinking what on earth was I doing "flirting" online with Mr Cleverbot....waittttt a minute!! Hang on to your horses before you go tazkirah-ing me.
My chat partner was a computer program called Chatterbots, okay. This latest chatting AI was designed to have conversations with humans. They use some form of artificial intelligence to learn how to generate better dialogue over time.
Its developer Rollo Carpenter has developed this chatterbot which learns from the most chaotic and difficult conversationalists: internet users.
My verdict - talking to Cleverbot is a little like talking with the collective community of the internet. And it’s just as horrific, funny and is definitely a boredom buster during those dry days when not a single drop of brain juice insight.
