I would just like to share what new features have been added to the BOT libre chat bot hosting platform since November.

We completed our AIML support last month, now AIML 1.0.1 is fully supported.
You can import or export AIML, either as a script, or as a chat log.
AIML imported as scripts, are run as scripts, AIML imported as chat logs, are merged into the bot's knowledge base similar to any other responses it has learned.
You can import responses that your bot has learned on its own, or export your bot's conversation logs as AIML, or import chat logs, and reexport then as AIML.
You can also use AIML to script Twitterbots, Email bots, or IRC bots.

We have added many extensions to our “Self” scripting language, both the support a hybrid syntax for AIML terminology, and to support new features including advanced Math, and Date/Time awareness.

We have done numerous enhancements to our bot's AI engine, including better grammar and understanding of verb tenses, information retrieval, name identification, conversational context, and keyword and topic analysis.

We released a web API, and an open source web and mobile SDK.

We released integrated live chat, and chatrooms.  You can create a live chat channel for your website or blog, and let your bot service it when you are not available, or you can configure your bot to learn from your live chat conversations.  You can create a chatroom for your bot, and let your friends chat with it.

We added forums and domains.  You can create your own forum, and embed it on your own website, or mobile app.  A domain lets you isolate your content in its own space.  We also added many security options to let you control who can access your bots, and who they will learn from.

We released the second version of our mobile support, including live chat, chatrooms, forums, and domains.

We added email automation support, so your bot can answer a gmail, pop or stmp email account.  We also made numerous enhancements to our Twitterbot support, including auto tweeting.

Finally we launched Paphus Live Chat, our commercial website for live chat, chatrooms, chat bots, and forums.  You can migrate any BOT libre bots to the commercial website if they require extra resource capacity, or professional support or services.

Let me know what you think, or what you think is still missing with the service.

I really like the addition of AIML  O0

So I guess it's possible to start with a totally blank brain and import some AIML ?

Can you please provide a link to the commercial website, that sounds interesting too.

One thought I had within the bounds of my own needs and also with thought to some of the things in AIML2. I would find a custom field (similar to OOB in AIML2 I think) whereby you can send a hidden field back via the API that would mean something to the client.

Yes, you can choose your template when you create your bot, so you could start with an empty brain.  There is also an option in the Memory admin page to "Delete All", which will delete everything in the bot's brain (including its avatars), to let you start fresh. (sometimes is feels like putting your dog down doing this though...)

I have thought about sending the client back something other than a response as well.  BOT libre has some of that with returning the emotional state and avatar, but I would like to also add an "action" object that could be returned.  This could be something like phone a number or open an app on mobile, or even move left/right in a robotic client (adding robotic support to the platform is something I dream of).  You can also return JavaScript in your response that the client can execute.
