Probably because a common response to hello, is... hello. In the emulator you have to send text to start a conversation. So hello is your only user input so far. Usually you want to add a Raw Input card or Wait for User Input card after your text greeting. Then you can use either event.preview or store their message in a variable and then run it through your AI task. Try adding one of those two cards after your text cards and before your AI task.
