As you can see ALICE can hold up the conversation quite good. It even makes funny remarks. The bot recognizes our questions correctly and gives believable answers. Although it seems that when the context of our conversation is not programmed in her database it tries to use pointed questions in order to keep the conversation going. Nevertheless the bot shows amazing abilities which can – under the right circumstances- be mistaken as a real person.
