Arrête de répéter c’que j’dis !

Posted in Robot by ths1104 on 23/01/2010

Combien de fois ai-je joué à répéter ce que disait mon petit frère rien que pour l’embêter ? Souvent la réaction était immédiate : “(Mais euh!) Arrête de répéter c’que j’dis ! ” Et si on jouait à la même chose avec un robot ? Quelle serait sa réaction ?

Petit test avec George le bot de conversation de Jabberwacky :

(Comme la conversation est longue, décousue et souvent inintéressante, j’ai mis en couleur ce qui paraît le plus pertinent. En rouge, les points drôles de la conversation. En vert, les points où George est perdu et relance apparement de façon random la conversation.)

Hi, want to chat? (George)

Décidement, George est (trop) calme et vraiment pas malin. Nous avons eu le droit à une jolie petite allusion au fait que l’on tournait en rond (rien de transcendantal non plus). Je dois avouer que j’ai un faible pour les espèces de petit crescendo qui apparaissent quand George est bloqué, notamment le “Indeededodu“! J’ai refait le test et là j’ai obtenu une réponse bien plus satisfaisante :

Once upon a time, a very wise, smart, cunning individual, slayed the evil cleverbot, and saved the entire planet from redundant and stupid conversations, the end. satisfied?
(MAGNIFIQUE GEORGE! BRAVO!)

Bien que cette réponse ait été apprise puisque George n’est qu’un robot imitateur qui “apprend peu à peu à placer la réponse la mieux adaptée au contexte de la conversation” [1], je défis quiconque d’obtenir une telle réponse en “jouant” avec quelqu’un de réel… Bref, on ne peut pas dire que George sache réellement détecter quand quelqu’un répète ce qu’il dit.

J’ai aussi essayé avec Alice [2],  qui a quand même gagné le prix Loebner – et oui monsieur, il y a du niveau ici!- mais la conversation a très vite tourné en rond et Alice n’a pas fait une seule remarque à propos de répétitions…

Conclusion : il y a encore du travail pour apprendre aux chat bots à reconnaître quand quelqu’un se moque d’eux…
