Update (soft of) on Silvia...
« on: November 21, 2010, 01:50:30 AM »
... the chatbot of Leslie Spring.

I did some follow up information after posting an announcement here a few years ago.

It seems that their company, Cognitive Code, has been growing or trying to as they've
landed a contract with Northrop Grumann corporation, a large defense contractor.
Perhaps they are interested in the program's AI.
I think there are three other companies that want the system as well. Check out the
article as it's a pretty informative read.

Whether we see it any time soon...well, don't get your hopes up but I did fire off a letter to
them with some pertinent questions....

OK...Here's the promised Update...

Greetings,

I contacted your company a few years ago and received a reply from Mimi Chen I believe. Basically, I'd like to know the status of Silvia as a stand-alone platform. There are several AI (Artificial Intelligence) forums that I belong to and we all thought Silvia would make an excellent vehicle with which to explore new avenues in AI, chatbots, assistants, etc.

Are there plans on making the program available to the general public any time soon and if so would you be kind enough to provide details, cost, abilities, etc.

Would the program need the studio to make custom modifications for a particular need much like an Expert System is "tailored" to a specific database or topic?

Thank you for your time.

Wishing you all the best,

Art,

Here are the current rates for our SILVIA technology.  Note that we are
gearing up to release a SILVIA for the Unity Game Engine, but I can't
offer that at the moment.


SILVIA Studio : $5,000 per seat

SILVIA Server : $25,000 for up to 5 machines/runtimes, discounts offered
for larger deployments.

The above rates only include 3 full sessions of live online training, and
e-mail support for a 30 day period.

Application runtime licenses are negotiated per-product, based on
reasonable royalty rates fitting the customer's needs. Examples:

1) A software-only product dependent on SILVIA technology may require a
royalty rate of 25 percent of net product revenues for the product.

2) A hardware product with low margins and "SILVIA Inside" may require a
royalty rate of 3 to 5 percent of the retail price.

Mimi,

Thank you for your prompt response. With all due respect would you mind if I were to post this email
on our AI forum for other members to view. Again, I appreciate your reply.

Thank you for your time,

Yes, of course
Also, note that there has been discussion about
SILVIA on the Unity forum, you may want to review it here:

Cheers
