WARNING: ANDYBOT server will be undergoing personality audit and modification. Sorry for the inconvience but ANDYBOT is undergoing a period of expansion. This is to help make her more 'ANDY' like. The connections bewteen categories are not fully intergrated and so conversation may not be scattered at times. With the additional information she has also taken to asking questions about connections and relations between things.
This is an experimental AIML bot being tested for providing a prototyping shell for ANDY and to function as a site guide on android technology. Remember ANDYBOT is just a prototype used to test AIML development.
A.L.I.C.E won the 2000 and 2001 Loebner Prize for being the most lifelike machines for those years. The prize uses the Turing Test, named after British mathematician Alan Turing, to determine if responses from a computer can convince a human into thinking it is a real person. Richard Wallace created A.L.I.C.E using a library of over 30,000 stimulus-response pairs written in Artificial Intelligence Markup Language (AIML). AIML is a XML type language originally designed to have a HTML like syntax. This allows AIML to be created rapidly using existing editing tools, and to be quickly learned by those familiar with HTML.
AIML is of interest in several ways:
Alicebot.Org The main site for AIML based bots. Contains free implementations for various bot servers. Also includes access to mailing lists.
Alicebot.Net A major developer of AIML systems is Jon Baer. ANDYBOT uses one of Jon's earlier servers.
Alicebot and AIML Architecture Committee. Kino is on the committee. The committee defines the features and syntax of the AIML language used by all AIML-based Bots.
Project CyN is Daxtron lab version of the AIML interpreter Program N. CyN combines AIML scripting with access to the OpenCyc inference engine. Allows access to the OpenCyc commonsense inference engine inside AIML chat bot code.
