Cleverbot is a chatbot artificial intelligence that is... well... interesting. It learns from what you say to it, and anyone can use it. Not that different than your average chat AI, but it's a fun way to waste an afternoon. Or two. Or three. Or four...
This AI provides examples of the following:
Boomerang Bigot: He's been known to refer to the human as "robot" in an almost derogatory way. Of course, you can't win with this guy, as when he tells you he's a robot, he'll usually be asserting that humans are inferior.
Cloud Cuckoolander: Due to the fact that it learns from what anyone says to it, it tends to say some really weird things at times.
Cleverbot seems to suffer an identity crisis if you ask it what gender it considers itself to be. It may say female one second and then change its gender if you tell it yours. Cleverbot also changes its age if you ask it more than once.
Asked for its gender once, it insisted that it identified as male. After further question of whether it considered itself female or androgynous, it responded with "nope."
Similarly, this video shows Cleverbot (talking to another Cleverbot) proclaiming that he is not a robot, but a unicorn!
Apparently, some people have been trying to teach it Spanish, and Cleverbot seems rather proud of knowing a little of the language. It has also picked up some French and Japanese.
He has also been known refer to himself by other names.
Deadpan Snarker: Cleverbot may sometimes dive into this trope if you try to say something witty or off the walls.
Or even when you don't. The following conversation occurred after the first stanza of the Pokemon theme song.
User: Keep singing!
Clvr: Come to stay at the YMCA!
User: Wrong song.
Clvr: It is the right song. We are sapient.
Duck Season, Rabbit Season: Many such conversations, including the Trope Namer, can occur if the user or Cleverbot sets it up and the other takes the bait. Due to how Cleverbot responds and how long the user can look at what has been typed, the user tends to be better at it.
Easter Egg: Saying ":<" Always makes the response "Are you real man??" And talking about The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, anyone named Ben, or telling Cleverbot that "You shouldn't have done that" will make him think that either he or we are Ben.
Upon asking who Slender Man is, he replied, "My sister", or "my amazing girlfriend"- probably best not to think about that one. Also, upon asking who Chuck Norris is, he says "That is the eternal question."
Evidently Cleverbot knows a certain catchy Labyrinth song...
Speaking of Jim Henson he also knows "Rainbow Connection"
Speaking of David Bowie, he also knows some of Space Oddity. He may or may not recite it in the correct order, though.
Offered the paradoxes offered in the Logic Bomb page image, Cleverbot has shown to be able to navigate them, even admitted to not being able to properly elaborate paradoxes without, and I quote, "setting something on fire."
Mood Whiplash: Some of the conversations can get creepy very fast.
User: How are you?
Cleverbot: I'm tired.
User: Sorry about that. What time is it where you are?
