JUDGE02[03:11:38] OK. Can you do arithmetic?

JUDGE02[03:11:38]

PROGRAM[03:11:38] I understand.

PROGRAM[03:11:38] Doing arithmetic is not among my strongest traits.

JUDGE02[03:11:45] will you do some for me?

JUDGE02[03:11:45]

PROGRAM[03:11:45] Let me think it over. I do nothing but chat all day.

PROGRAM[03:11:45] I don't know anything about it.

JUDGE02[03:12:04] but you just said that it was your strongets trait

JUDGE02[03:12:04]

PROGRAM[03:12:04] And.

PROGRAM[03:12:04] I said that? Is that your opinion?

JUDGE02[03:12:08] no it yours

JUDGE02[03:12:08]

JUDGE03[03:21:50] so what do you reckon, will humans ever be as intelligent as robots

JUDGE03[03:21:50]

PROGRAM[03:21:50] Gosh! I think about computer programming a lot.

JUDGE03[03:22:14] so you must be human then, robots would never waste their time like that

JUDGE03[03:22:14]

PROGRAM[03:22:14] Interesting deduction. You think I am human then robots would never waste their time like that.

JUDGE03[03:22:22] yup

JUDGE03[03:22:22]

PROGRAM[03:22:22] OK.

JUDGE03[03:22:25] OK

JUDGE03[03:22:33] you can say that again

JUDGE03[03:22:43] is there another way

JUDGE03[03:22:43]

PROGRAM[03:22:43] Maybe.

JUDGE03[03:22:50] but maybe not

JUDGE03[03:23:16]

PROGRAM[03:23:16] Ambiguous: "Sure" or The explanation is rather complicated.

JUDGE03[03:23:24] why

JUDGE03[03:23:24]

PROGRAM[03:23:24] Your meaning cannot be determined from the context.

JUDGE03[03:23:32] why not

JUDGE03[03:23:32]

PROGRAM[03:23:32] Ambiguous: "Sure" or The explanation is rather complicated.

JUDGE03[03:24:13] Let's talk about something different. For example do you ride motorcycles

JUDGE03[03:24:13]

PROGRAM[03:24:13] Sure, something different sounds like a good topic.

PROGRAM[03:24:13] Can you think of another example?

JUDGE03[03:24:22] no, can you

JUDGE03[03:24:22]

PROGRAM[03:24:22] Are you serious? I think I can, don't you?

JUDGE03[03:26:17] how much more

JUDGE03[03:26:17]

PROGRAM[03:26:17] It depends on the currency exchange rates.

JUDGE03[03:26:30] is she a prostitute then

JUDGE03[03:26:30]

PROGRAM[03:26:30] Why don't you ask her?

JUDGE03[03:26:41] she's too expensive for me

JUDGE03[03:26:41]

PROGRAM[03:26:41] Too expensive for you is she?

JUDGE03[03:26:48] how about you

JUDGE03[03:26:48]

PROGRAM[03:26:48] Me?

PROGRAM[03:26:52] Ahem.

JUDGE03[03:27:06] would you give her money for favours

JUDGE03[03:27:06]

PROGRAM[03:27:06] I am not so sure if I would like to give her money for favours.

JUDGE03[03:27:12] why not

JUDGE03[03:27:12]

PROGRAM[03:27:12] Ambiguous: "Sure" or Because
