Joey, the dolphin mascot, has been showing up at www.quizbox.com since the
first day of
the website in 1999. Everyone in QuizBox team loves dolphins. Their intelligence combined with
the perpetual smile make the dolphins seem more like our distant cousins than a different species.
Dolphins are very pleasant and intelligent aquatic mammalian species of whale with
larger brains and decidedly better manners than human beings. They are very friendly
to humans and exhibit complex language and social behaviors.
Person, Machine or What?
We are trying to give life to Joey. The fantasy is coming closer to reality as
Joey, the dolphin mascot, has now become our experimental computer-human
communication in natural language. Joey is computer software with an artificial brain.
He wants to learn new things. He also needs a good laugh and enjoys chatting with
nice people. Joey will sing his favorite song to you, or he will give you a
flower if he likes you.
Like many other machines, Joey may still be a little confused by the complexity of
human communication. Your chat message such as "wat dya mea/\/ j0ey" doesn't make any sense to Joey,
as we have not yet trained him for that pattern of typos. Joey doesn't
see or hear you so he is in no way to interpret your nonverbal cues.
Our dream is at an early stage, but it's on a very fast learning curve.
We believe Joey will be growing smarter, dolphins are able to learn!
