Abstract [en]

In 1950 Alan Turing introduced the famous “Turing test” which tests if a machine can be as intelligent as a human by testing if it can communicate with a person in a “human” way. Inspired by this test, numerous so called chatbots, in the form of computer programs, that manage a written dialogue have been created. A so called commonsensedatabase consists of data that most humans would know andconsider as common knowledge, something that computers generally do not know very muchabout. This report describes the process of an attempt to implement a simple chatbot using the common-sense database ConceptNet. The behaviour, or the human-likeness, of this chatbot was then compared to that of the classic chatbot ELIZA and the 2008 Loebner prize winning chatbot Elbot, through a series of user tests. The results indicate that using a common-sense database for a chatbot shows some promisefor further investigation.
