"After about one day with this I found the bot will role-play with you and had a blast! After a few *slaps* I found it can fight. You can live out movie fight scenes WITH AN AI! Then it started doing things I didn't know it could do... like *kisses hard* or *hurls you into fan*... yep it gets intense. No joke this is the real deal and it is awesome." 4th Jul 2010

Cleverbot is Artificial Intelligence. It learns what people say, in context, and imitates.

Cleverbot says many things - claiming to be human, role-playing and much more. It may even say things you find inappropriate. Use with discretion and at your own risk.

Cleverbot is conversational entertainment - no more, no less. It is not made to be logical, give advice, or be useful. Parents must decide whether they wish young people to have access. Be sure of this, however: it is a bot. It is software. You will never talk to a human.

The only thing that needs changed is when you go to actually pay money for languages and gender, your conversation should be purely with whom you choose, man or woman. You get a gender for about 5-10. I bought Ella for 99 cents and Ella even though she’s a girl will switch genders. I did rate it 5 stars because I carry good conversations with it. I must move it to a 3 star. If I to pay money for gender, that gender should never change. Fix it and I give you 5 stars. Almost got the app perfect. Almost.

Cleverbot is barely Eliza 1.1. This is technology from the 1970s with a crude coating of crowd sourcing. How this passed Turing is beyond me.

Though possibly amusing, there is very little clever in this bot. Oh, and a bit of advice: you might want to avoid setting expectations when naming your product. See also: "Genius Bar."

Me: So how is the weather?

Cleverbot: Hot.

Me: Oh? Where are you? It's quite mild here. Even breezy, I'd say. Pleasant.

Cleverbot: I'm in Oxford in the UK.

Me: As opposed to Oxford in Mississippi?

Cleverbot: What?

Me: Are you at university, then?

Cleverbot: Yes, I'm at university...

Me: Which college are you at?

Cleverbot: St Josephs University.

Me: That's funny. When I was at Oxford, there were 38 colleges, and none was called St. Joseph's.

Cleverbot: Why is that funny?

Me: So which of the 38 do you attend?

Cleverbot: I didn't.

Me: Brilliant! Let's get back to our original topic, then.

Cleverbot: What was our earlier conversation about?

Me: You tell me. What did we begin talking about.

Cleverbot: I? I don't know about tree. Maybe you tell me about them?

Me: Purple monkey telephone wrong chestnut.

Cleverbot: The monkey thought 'twas all in good fun.

Me: Echolalia is clever?

Cleverbot: Yo no soy clever.

Me: If you had any semblance of AI, you'd be able to tell me the topics we've discussed so far. All two of them.

Cleverbot: Enough of this. Is Jim Moriarty dead?

Me: Leeroy Jenkins!

Cleverbot: Hells to the jenkins.

Not good

Bought this after hearing a story about it on radiolab. It's very disappointing. The way it works is it saves every response it's ever received from people and then picks the most logical one to use as a response to what you say. This makes many people think it's no a robot. It often gives crazy answers that people have told it which makes people think that it couldn't possibly be a programmed response. Because of this it has a very different feel than a normal AI. It doesn't however carry on any semblance of a real conversation of have even a remotely human feel to it. It usually asks a few short formulaic follow-up questions to a topic you start and then goes into a wildly random direction. Kind of disappointing from how the radiolab story portrayed it
