I Can Write a Halfway Decent Chatterbot From Scratch

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3 People

    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...

    The Skills Are Useful For Other Things Too...

    What the hobby is "Good For"
