I Can Write a Halfway Decent Chatterbot From Scratch

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3 People

    Bots who "Love" things and the people who hopefully love them...

    In my Last post I mentioned what this hobby was and that "art" was an  ideal application. Several years ago I tried to write a chatterbot who portrayed herself as being romantically interested in human creations.  The problem with the idea was that she was my...
