    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...

    Why From Scratch?

    Someone wrote me and asked (about my Renilee bot project, who is really a "Shari 2.0" :-D): "I wanna hear more about her. I think 'Alice' is cool but why does Renilee make a better conversational bot?" ... I agree, Alice isn't bad at all...  But what isn't as...

    What the hobby is "Good For"

    First I'll say I've been out of the hobby for like 3 or 4 years, so that's my perspective. Tools and techniques are probably better nowadays... Having said that... Every day hundreds of people spend countless hours on this fascinating hobby... They are not computer geeks...
