Creating a Chat Bot

Creating a Chat Bot in Articles

Human interaction has always fascinated me: social awkwardness, communication style, how knowledge is transferred, how relationships are built around trust, story telling and knowledge exchange.

What if a machine invoked an emotional response?

I want to write about a project I have been working on, and how it has engulfed the last few years of my life, but ultimately, this post is about creating a real chat bot.

Robot Combat League

Robot Combat League in Robots on TV

Each weekly show features tournament competitions between 8-foot, 1000-pound humanoid robots controlled by human competitors, one robo-jockey and one robo-tech per team. The series features twelve teams of individuals from diverse backgrounds. Each team is paired with a robot that they control using an exo-suit that directs its movements. Each fight goes three rounds, and the winning team advances. There are 12 total robots. The robots range from an axe headed laser eyed warrior to a robot made of plexiglass and a roll cage. The robots and the suits used to control them were created by robotics expert Mark Setrakian.

The five biggest threats to human existence

The five biggest threats to human existence in Articles

In the daily hubbub of current “crises” facing humanity, we forget about the many generations we hope are yet to come. Not those who will live 200 years from now, but 1,000 or 10,000 years from now. I use the word “hope” because we face risks, called existential risks, that threaten to wipe out humanity. These risks are not just for big disasters, but for the disasters that could end history.

Why Is Our Sci-Fi So Glum About A.I.?

Why Is Our Sci-Fi So Glum About A.I.? in Articles

When I was 12, I invented a superhero named Boy Genius, a guy my age who awakens one morning with access to 100 percent of his brain power. This allows him to tap into frightening and exhilarating gifts — telekinesis, telepathy, teleportation. Like most superheroes, Boy Genius is both blessed with and plagued by his abilities. The U.S. government becomes aware of his existence, which means he dodges men in black while also fending off middle-school bullies and tormentors.

My inspiration for Boy Genius was the normal superhero recipe, one part pubescent self-pity, one part junk science fiction. The junk sci-fi, in this case, was borrowed from a movie I had recently watched called “The Lawnmower Man.” (The HBO guide alerted me to expect some “BN,” or “Brief Nudity,” somewhere in its 108-minute run time.) It was reprehensibly silly, the sort of movie that even a 12-year-old awaiting a flash of breasts intuits is insulting to his intelligence. And yet at its witless core was an old question I was encountering for the first time: How would human consciousness contend with a software upgrade?

Brain in AIML / Pandorabots

Brain is a system to model, create and manage the knowledge base of chatbots based on AIML technology.

It was designed to be an extreme productive tool, hence it is simple and gathers in a smart and harmonious way all the necessary tools for modeling and creating the knowledge base on a single screen. It encourages the creation of as much content as possible, either to contemplate the maximum sentences of chat's users and to increase the robot's ability to give different answers to the same sentence of users.

It was also designed to be an extreme effective tool, hence there is no direct manipulation of AIML's sources. Instead, it was created an interface to a metamodel that is more intuitive and extends some original elements of AIML, which gives the user greater productivity without losing the power of pure AIML.

Friday Funny in General Chat

A 'friend of a friend' put him in touch with a notorious dark-side,
underworld figure who went by the name of 'Artie.' Artie then explained to
the husband that his going price for snuffing out a spouse was £5,000.

The husband said he was willing to pay that amount, but that he wouldn't
have any cash on hand until he could collect his wife's insurance money.

Artie insisted on being paid at least something up front, so the man opened
his wallet, displaying the single pound coin that rested inside. Artie
sighed, rolled his eyes, & reluctantly agreed to accept the pound as down
payment for the dirty deed.

A few days later, Artie followed the man's wife to the local Tesco store.
There, he surprised her in the produce department and proceeded to strangle
her with his gloved hands and as the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last
breath and slumped to the floor the manager of the produce department
stumbled unexpectedly onto the murder scene. Unwilling to leave any living
witnesses behind, Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce
manager as well.

However, unknown to Artie, the entire proceedings were captured by the
hidden security cameras and observed by the store's security guard, who
immediately called the police.

Artie was caught and arrested before he could even leave the store. Under
intense questioning at the police station, Artie revealed the whole sordid
plan, including his unusual financial arrangements with the hapless husband
who was also quickly arrested.

The next day in the newspaper,

The headline declared............

This Technology Could Change the Way Deaf People Live
22 October 2014, 12:00 am

Ryan Hait-Campbell says his San Francisco company's invention is really about jobs. Deaf people like himself, explains the MotionSavvy CEO, are too often shunted into positions that don't require talking to anyone--washing dishes, fishing or other solitary vocations that often have low wages, little opportunity for advancement and no need for an employer to hire an interpreter.

3D Avatar Project in General Project Discussion

Here's where I am at with my animated head. I've added blinking and eye movement now. The blinking is automatic and the eyes are currently controlled via a slider. Eventually I will work out some noise routine so that the eyes wander realistically.

I'm not completely happy with the hair. Getting the transparency right for that has been the bugbear so far. I mean the layering is not quite right, but I have one idea to try still.

This is a new voice too - 'Jess' from Cereproc.

Most of the recent work has been 'under the skin', quite literally. As I mentioned before somewhere I am now working with a lower poly model. This has meant I can do much more. There's also a bit of optimisation done to the mesh, so that only the parts that need animating are processed. If it doesn't move then I simply display it, but then forget about it.

Scientists have crunched data to predict crime, hospital visits, and government uprisings -- so why not the price of Bitcoin? A researcher at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems recently developed a machine-learning algorithm that can predict the price of the infamously volatile cryptocurrency Bitcoin, allowing his team to nearly double its investment over a period of 50 days.

Ford wants to keep drivers alert on the long road to autonomous cars
21 October 2014, 12:00 am

Self-driving vehicles will make the driver redundant, but long before that, smarter cars may leave the driver thinking about other things. Ford is already studying that problem, anticipating an evolution toward autonomous cars that will take a lot longer than projects by the likes of Google may suggest. PCWorldLink.
