AI program for instant messengers
« on: December 23, 2005, 07:58 PM »
I used to run THE FLASH BBS, a bulletin board used from multiple countries. One of the programs for it was an AI answering machine for when the users paged the sysop. It would key off keywords and answer the pager with edible pre programmed responses. It logged the conversations and was a lot of fun when you read the log and saw how long it took them to realize they were talking to a machine. There were multiple responses to each key word. I have not seen anything similar after the web took over the computers communications. It would be a great shareware program to use on the instant messengers. I would like to interest a programmer to program something similar.

Yeah, I loved programs like that!

There are a few similar programs available today.  I haven't tried many, but I do know about TrillAlice, a plugin for Trillian implementing the A.l.i.c.e. chat system.
Lots of fun.  You can find out more about the Alice system in general at .  There's a lot to look through!

if you can find one of these addins that has source included it would be a lot easier for someone to modify that sourcecode to do something more specific like you want bratliff.
