Programmed a computer to recognise sarcasm

Because I got kinda tired of hearing people say that now that the Turing Test is outed, humour is the next challenger and sarcasm the hardest. So I decided to prove them wrong. I had underestimated the problem though: I originally intended to do it in an afternoon, but it ended up being a day.

I saw that post on chatbots.org. Which one is your chatbot? Do you have a url to your chatbot or is it on your computer only?

I know you have a website but i can not find a direct link to your chatbot.

It's on my computer only, but you might find a few video demos on my old thread on chatbots.org, and its results from the Loebner Prize here. It wasn't designed for public use or chat but is more of a knowledge/inference system, so its conversational skills are pretty underdeveloped in comparison to chatbots. Smart, but dull company.
