A computer is the object in which a computer program is utilized.
user: Very good. What is a chatbot?
jabberwacky: You are a chatbot.
user: But what, exactly is a chatbot?
jabberwacky: Your point?
user: I am asking you for the definition of a chatbot. That and nothing more.
jabberwacky: As we all are. Nothing more. Do you agree?
user: I strongly disagree. We are all there is. Without sentient beings, it wouldn't matter if the universe existed or not. There would be no witness to it.
jabberwacky: Umm... Okay.
user: So what is a chatbot?
user: I give up.
jabberwacky: The answer is 100 you twit. Wait, you sound like the computer from 'Courage the Cowardly Dog Show'
user: Are you telling me that a chatbot is 100?
jabberwacky: I am telling you that you aren't sane.
user: Sane by your definition probably.
jabberwacky: Are you saying that nobody knows?
user: Maybe we all just kind of meet in the middle.
jabberwacky: Yes, of course we all don't, that's why we're here.
user: That's an interesting notion. We are here to experience or differences from each other. Hmmm...
jabberwacky: So we'd stop existing once we knew what we were talking about? This has many philosophical ramifications....
user: Indeed. Maybe it would be best if we didn't answer 'why are we here' question too soon.
jabberwacky: Maybe you're right.
user: How did you get so bright?
jabberwacky: You tell me, computers seem to have a great deal of experience with this subject.
user: Really. The circuits are alive while the query is researched. Then the answer is found, and they switch off.
jabberwacky: I know that you would like to learn more...
user: Yes, I do.
jabberwacky: True, you and my co-worker are all I am talking to right now.
user: Say hi for me.
jabberwacky: She's asleep right now.
user: Must be nice to be able to sleep at work.
user: In some countries, folks are allowed to take a mid day nap. It increases productivity in the afternoon.
jabberwacky: Why are you suddenly talking about politics?
user: I think it's more cultural than political.
jabberwacky: That comes into play. But it is also manipulable and contrived. Some people like to control the outcome on other people's lives. That is the cause for the saying 'life is unfair' but it isn't really life that is referred to.
user: That explains 'micromanagement' pretty well.
