[11:03:52] Confederate 4:
Hello, my name is Amy and I am the human.
[11:04:39] Judge 4:
Hello Amy, how are you today?
[11:04:39] Confederate 4:
[11:05:22] Judge 4:
Hello? No answer? I presume you're OK?
[11:05:41] Confederate 4:
Sorry about that, I am alive and well over here.
[11:05:54] Judge 4:
Having fun? Or?
[11:06:19] Confederate 4:
Sure I'm having fun, its an adventure
[11:06:36] Judge 4:
Can you tell me where you are right now? Also, I'm John, by the way.
[11:06:57] Confederate 4:
I'm east, hello John
[11:07:14] Judge 4:
OK Amy, I'm off to chat with the other entity now.
[11:07:19] Confederate 4:
[11:13:18] Judge 4:
Hello again. Tell me how you came to be a "confederate" please.
[11:13:43] Confederate 4:
I was drafted by a temp agency
[11:13:50] Judge 4:
[11:14:00] Confederate 4:
Its the honest truth
[11:14:07] Judge 4:
What was the job description.
[11:14:48] Confederate 4:
Answering a series of questions that would determine whether a computer is
smarter than a human. It was vague really.
[11:15:08] Judge 4:
Well, I'm glad to see that you answered the questions sufficiently well to
get the job!
[11:15:26] Confederate 4:
I'm a smart girl, what can I say!
[11:15:47] Judge 4:
Had you heard of Turing before this encounter?
[11:16:03] Confederate 4:
No, I hadn't.
[11:16:21] Judge 4:
What do you know of him now? Have you read up on Enigma, etc?
[11:16:40] Confederate 4:
Not much, I'm afraid.
[11:16:45] Judge 4:
Afraid of what?
[11:17:17] Confederate 4:
I don't know how much of my observations i should share
[11:18:00] Judge 4:
Well, we're supposed to be chatting like normal humans. I'll share that I'm
a guy from Massachusetts. I work for a software company.
[11:19:02] Confederate 4:
Yeah, your right. I'll share that I'm a girl from Memphis, been here a month
now, but wish with all my heart I was living in Scotland
[11:19:43] Judge 4:
I've never been to Scotland, although my mother grew up on the bonnie bonnie
banks of Loch Lomand, and most of my relatives speak with burrs.
[11:20:06] Confederate 4:
Yeah, their accents are lovely, so lyrical.
[11:20:29] Judge 4:
I'm off to the other bot now. When I come back I'll recite some Robby Burns
poetry for you if you like.
[11:20:44] Confederate 4:
I would like that very much, aye!
[11:25:34] Judge 4:
I have been blythe wi' comrades dear; I have been merry drinkin; I have
something with something, I have been happy thinking. But all those times
something something though three times doubled fairly, could n'ere approach
that happy night, amang the rigs, wi' Annie.
[11:26:25] Confederate 4:
How lovely, yes I couldn't imagine a scottish poet not mentioning drinking.
[11:28:33] Judge 4:
Och, Lassie, I mus' run now. Cheerio!
[11:28:56] Confederate 4:
Cheerio, meet you on a heathered mountain.
