Over the last few months I have been working hard on Legion and adding lots more information to her database and making little tweaks to her AIML here and there, most recently I have been teaching Legion about the solar system and I plan to make it one of her strong subjects as it fits in with one of the subjects over on DH.
I am still in the process of adding more information, I don't really see that ever ending during Legions life.
Here is a little demo of what has been added.
Human: Hi Legion
Legion: Hello and welcome to Datahopa, how can I help you today?
Human: tell me about the solar system
Legion: The Solar System is located about two thirds of the way out from the Galactic Centre, on the inner edge of the Orion Cygnus Arm of the Milky Way galaxy. It consists of the Sun and its planetary system of eight planets, (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune), their moons, the asteroid belt, Kuiper belt and the Oort cloud. It formed 4.6 billion years ago from the collapse of a giant molecular cloud. The vast majority of the system's mass is in the Sun, with most of the remaining mass contained in Jupiter.
Human: name the planets
Legion: They are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and sometimes Pluto.
Human: how many planets are there?
Legion: There are 8 major planets in our solar system. There were 9 planets which including Pluto too. International Astronomical Union decided that Pluto is no longer a planet , it is a dwarf planet. There are 5 dwarf planets.
Human: what are dwarf planets
Legion: A dwarf planet, as defined by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), is a celestial body in direct orbit of the Sun that is massive enough that its shape is controlled by gravitational forces rather than mechanical forces (and is thus an ellipsoid), but has not cleared the neighboring region of other objects. It is a planetary-mass object having sufficient mass to overcome its internal compressive strength and achieve hydrostatic equilibrium, but is neither a planet nor a satellite. The IAU recognizes five dwarf planets in the Solar System: Ceres, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris.
Human: tell me about Pluto
Legion: I have more than one definition of Pluto. Do you want Pluto astronomy or mythology?
Legion: Pluto is the largest known member of the Kuiper belt. Originally classified as the ninth planet from the Sun, its status was reclassified to a "dwarf planet" in 2006. It is composed primarily of rock and ice, and is approximately one-sixth the mass of the Earth's Moon and one-third its volume. It has an eccentric and highly inclined orbit that takes it from 30 to 49 AU (4.4 to 7.4 billion km) from the Sun. Periodically it comes closer to the Sun than Neptune. Its orbital period is 248 Earth years and its day is equal to 6.39 Earth days. It has five known moons, the largest being Charon.
Human: what is the Kuiper belt
Legion: The Kuiper Belt sometimes called the Edgeworth Kuiper belt, is a region of the Solar System beyond the planets, extending from the orbit of Neptune (at 30 AU) to approximately 50 AU from the Sun. It is larger than the asteroid belt, (20 times as wide and 20 to 200 times as massive). It consists mainly of remnants from the Solar System's formation. Kuiper belt objects are composed largely of frozen methane, ammonia and water. It is home to at least three dwarf planets: Pluto, Haumea, and Makemake. Some moons, such as Neptune's Triton and Saturn's Phoebe, are also believed to have originated there.
Human: tell me about Saturn
Legion: I have more than one definition of Saturn. Do you want Saturn astronomy or mythology?
Legion: Saturn is a gas giant, the sixth planet from the Sun, and the second largest planet in the Solar System. The average distance between it and the Sun is over 1.4 billion km, or 9 AU. It takes Saturn 10,759 Earth days (or about 29.5years), to finish one revolution around the Sun. It has a pale yellow hue due to ammonia crystals in its upper atmosphere. It has a prominent ring system; nine continuous main rings and three discontinuous arcs, composed of ice, rocky debris and dust. It has sixty-two moons. Titan is its largest, the only moon in the Solar System to retain a substantial atmosphere.
Human: what is a moon
Legion: A moon is a natural satellite of a planet.
Human: does Saturn have moons?
Legion: Saturn has 53 official moons and 9 provisional (unofficial) moons. The most well-known of Saturn's moons is probably Titan. It is the second largest moon in the Solar System next to Jupiter's Ganymede. Titan is larger than the planet Mercury. Some of the other moons are Pan, Atlas, Prometheus, Pandora, Epimetheus, Janus, Mimas , Enceladus , Tethys, Telesto, Calypso, Dione, Helene, Rhea, Hyperion, Iapetus, and Phoebe.
Human: tell me about the sun
Legion: The Sun (Sol) is the star at the centre of the Solar System. Roughly 149.6 million km (1 AU) from Earth, light travels from it to Earth in 8 minutes and 19 seconds. It is a yellow dwarf, spectral class G2V; a main-sequence star generating energy by nuclear fusion of hydrogen nuclei into helium, with a surface temperature of roughly 5778 K ((5505 C). It formed about 4.6 billion years ago and accounts for 99.86% of the total mass of the Solar System. It orbits the centre of the Milky Way at roughly 24,000 to 26,000 light-years from the galactic centre, with one clockwise orbit taking 225 to 250 million years.
Human: Educate me
Legion: You might not know this; Comets are bodies of ice, rock and organic compounds that can be several miles in diameter. Again?
Human: what is a comet
Legion: A comet is a small body orbiting the sun on an elliptical path with a long tail of dust and ice.
Human: Educate me
Legion: How about this; Every year there are more than 16 million thunderstorms - an average of 45,000 a day. At any moment, there are 2000 in progress. There are about 100 lightning flashes each second somewhere on Earth. More?
Legion: You might not know this; It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. Again?
Legion: How about this; Women blink nearly twice as much as men. More?
Human: thanks Legion
Legion: You are more than welcome, Helping people pleases me very much.
