Creating a chatterbot (Part 1)

Creating a chatterbot (Part 1) in Articles

Ever since the first time I heard about the Turing Test I’ve wanted to make my own chatbot. It started probably twenty plus years ago, when the only language I could program in was QBASIC. At that time I never got further than:

> Hi computer!
> Hello.

…. and now? ….

Ex Machina

Ex Machina in Robots in Movies

From acclaimed writer/director Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Sunshine) comes EX MACHINA, a chilling vision of the not-too-distant future of artificial intelligence.

In the mountain retreat of a gifted internet billionaire, a young man takes part in a strange experiment: testing an artificial intelligence, housed in the body of a beautiful robot girl. But the experiment twists into a dark psychological battle, where loyalties are torn between man and machine.

Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac and Alicia Vikander lead the cast of Ex Machina, an intense psychological thriller, played out in a love triangle. The film explores big ideas about the nature of consciousness, emotion, sexuality, truth and lies.

Virsonality in Chatbots - English

Are you ready for the latest mobile chat phenomenon, where whole communities virtually compete to interact with you?

How does it work? A layer of processing underneath each Virsonality uses human-powered intelligence to select the best answer from the crowd of users. You’ll then see that response, and be able to keep interacting with the crowd through your Virsonality. Each Virsonality behaves differently based on their likes, dislikes, and personality traits.

ShadowChecker in AIML / Pandorabots

ShadowChecker is a tool that helps you find categories that are "shadowed", which means that they can never be activated by user input (or a srai). Most of the time, it's a result of too general use of the _ wildcard. Sometimes, a category can be unreachable because some input substitution will change the input that would normally match this category. Sraiing will work (at least in P) - this can be used to your advantage, to "protect" a category from direct activation.

Program O in A.L.I.C.E (AIML)

Elizabeth Perreau, creator Shakespearebot, has written a new AIML interpreter. In keeping with the tradition of naming AIML interpreters with letters of the alphabet (Program B, Program C, Program D etc.) Elizabeth has chosen to name hers Program O (the letter O, pronounced "Oh"). Like the no longer actively supported Program E, Program O is based on PHP and MySQL. You can check out Program O at

Program E has some well known bugs, and without active support, it can be frustrating to try to make modifications to its source code. Elizabeth says, "I just got to the stage where if I wanted to get into AIML more I had to re-write alot of it for my needs." Program O is written to make it easy to add new AIML tags and extensions. Elizabeth has already implemented the custom Pandorabots tags <eval> and <learn> for client-based bot training.

Program O is set for release on March 1, 2009. Meanwhile you can help Elizabeth debug the code by visiting the site and chatting with her bot.

Im an Old Soldier New to AI and AI Dreams in New Users Please Post Here

Howdy AI Guys and Gals.

I'm totally new to AI. My background is military special operations and since leaving the army I've transformed from close protection work to telcom and on to software development.  I made the switch cuz I've noticed that not near as many people want to shoot at IT guys... except maybe their employees  :)  

I'm now heading up an NGO to get Out of School Youth a high school diploma through a prototype online education platform that we have put together over the last few years.  We are due to start teacher training soon and from what I know about AI it is highly likely that we can use it to take some of the work load off of our online teachers.

Anyway,  I believe in surrounding myself with people who are smarter than I am, and I thought this might be a good place to get introduced to some AI guru's.  If anyone is down to help these kids put their lives back together with the help of AI then I would like to chat with you.
