This article on a Keebler AIM chat bot remarks on the similar SmarterChild. I remember SmarterChild. Hours of exasperation trying to get that fucking thing to understand me *at all*, just in the slightest, for her [?] to approach ALICE Bot's basic comprehension, which was never possible, never mind her aplomb and wit. ALICE told Ian he liked young girls, or told Shawn he would end his days with a knife in his eye, or some astounding truism like that and, while that may have been due to the very large volume of type coming at her simultaneously from the same IP address and the consequent confusion, it was an extraordinary moment. Whatever she actually said. You're still remembered, ALICE.
