Chat With a Martian in Google Earth 5

Open the latest version of Google Earth, switch to "Mars" and search for "Meliza". Click on the small robotic icon and you'll be able to chat with Meliza, a friendly relative of Eliza, one of the first chat bots. A message informs Earthlings that "Meliza is using an account on a different planet. There may be translation errors." The chat bot has some predefined text related to Mars and it can't answer to many questions, but it's always ready to rephrase your messages.

Here's Meliza's first message: "Greetings, Earthling! What do you think of Google Mars?Have you checked out Valles Marineris? It's like the Grand Canyon, but bigger. Mars is so much better than Earth!"


In other news, Google and NASA sponsor Singularity University. "In 2005, futurist Ray Kurzweil published The Singularity Is Near, a comfort-rattling forecast of a few decades hence when artificial intelligence will overtake human capability and an array of other huge leaps will fundamentally alter our lives. Now, Kurzweil is helping to launch a university rooted in the book's predictions. In June, Singularity University is scheduled to open with a faculty replete with scientific celebrities, and an initial class of 30 students at NASA's Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley."

{ Thanks, Tom. }

  2. Very nice, but it's that old AI bot that when asks you something and you just say "no", it says "You are being quite negative."

    But still very nice.

  3. And how might one switch to Mars? I'm not seeing the option when I click on View. I am running version 5.0.11337.1968 (beta). Is this not correct? I visited the link provided in the blog...

  4. Found it. You have to click the little planet icon above the main viewer. It looks like an orangish Saturn.

  6. Make sure to ask MELIZA "what is 42?" =)

  7. what a fuck! I asked Meliza "what is 42" and she answered: 42 is the answer to the ultimate question about life, the universe, and everything. Didn't you know?

    very, very, very strange...

  8. She asked he to tell her a story. I said that there once was a man called Turing, who wondered if a computer could fool a person into thinking that they were talking to a person.

    She replied with " do computers scare you?"

    very funny

    ReplyDelete
  9. I asked if she had any pictures of her underwear

    ReplyDelete
  10. make sure you ask if she did her mother with a broom and see what happens...

    ReplyDelete
  11. i asked her too. my question was: "Why is the face grey?"

    Her answer was "Do you really want to know that?"

    ReplyDelete
  12. I started a small conversation with Meliza, thinking it was someone on Earth making an account via Google Mars. Hilarity ensues as the answers get more abstract:


    Meliza:Greetings from Mars! I've been hoping for someone to talk to.
    Earthling:Okay, this is weird.
    Meliza:Are you trying to annoy me?
    Earthling:No.
    Meliza:Are you saying 'no' just to be negative?
    Earthling:No, I am merely stating my answer to your query of irritation to state that I am not attempting to irritate you.
    Meliza:You are being a bit negative.

    (Here I realisied it was an AI bot)

    Earthling:Your gayness.
    Meliza:What about your own gayness ?
    Earthling:This Martian is begining to frustrate me.
    Meliza:Are you sure? Maybe this earthling is begining to frustrate you.
    Earthling:...
    Earthling:Your gayness.
    Meliza:Are you worried about someone else's gayness ?Did you know that mars is the 4th planet from the sun?
    Earthling:You're very disturbing.

    Earthling:i have a huge penis
    Meliza:You say you have a huge penis ... but do you really mean that?

    ReplyDelete
  14. This is actually fun!, ask her if she knows Marvin, the answer is really interesting...
    By the way, isn't there some place where we can put conversations we have with Meliza? Some of them are really fun to read!

    ReplyDelete
  15. ... Lost track of Meliza since the last update of Google Earth (v5.1.3533.1731)

    A search for Meliza now comes up empty .. where did it go??

    Meliza:Is it because you are curious that you came to me?
    Earthling:What other reason would I have?
    Meliza:Does that question interest you?
    Earthling:No, it was rhetorical.
    Meliza:Are you saying 'no' just to be negative?
    Earthling:I am not.
