How to decide if a chatterbot is intelligent

I experimented a bit with Jabberwacky today. Jabberwacky is a chatterbot that won the Loebner Prize in 2005 and 2006. It learns from the interactions it has with humans. This sometimes results in funny conversations.

Here is an excerpt of the conversation I had with it:

Me: Hey, don’t be rude, you are the robot, remember?
Bot: You are not a robot?
Me: No. I am a human being.
Bot: You think you’re the center of the world, don’t you?
Me: Well, we humans do indeed.
Bot: What about world domination?
Me: That’s the ultimate goal.
Bot: Does linux mean love?
Me: Linux is the best OS in the world.
Bot: Linux is beautiful.

This is real intelligence people ;-)
