2001 Space Odyssey
Who out there does not remember the movie "2001 Space Odyssey" and the computer Hal. Well, according to this software, you can have a Hal Computer. Zabaware has put out a program that will give your computer "artificial intelligence". The URL is http://www.zabaware.com/home.html?gclid=CPmj8YKP3IwCFQoNgQodbEYPYg.
The company claims this "software can hold intelligent conversations with you. You can chat with your computer about anything and you can always expect an intelligent response."
"Ultra Hal Assistant is your digital secretary and companion. He (or she depending on your character preference) can remember and remind you of appointments. He can keep an address book. He can keep a phone book, and even dial phone numbers for you! Hal can also run programs and recent documents on command. Hal can help you browse the Internet. He will offer you help with most of your Windows programs. Hal does all of this from natural language -- simply tell him or ask him something in plain English! Hal has huge conversational database and can chat about anything at all. Hal will learn from every single sentence that you tell him and over time Hal will learn to like the same things you do, and to talk about topics you like to talk about. Ultra Hal Assistant even has built in speech recognition so that you can speak to Hal out loud instead of typing. Ultra Hal utilizes an advanced real time 3D character engine from Haptek that delivers 3-D artificial human characters so convincing and engaging you could swear they were real."
There is a free download for this software, but we where unable to use get it to work. Therefore, Dembe has never used this program, but thought the concept was very interested and worth sharing. Download with caution.
