Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3 People

    New Group....

    This is for anyone interested in the idea of making simulated personalities for artistic reasons using chatterbot tools like (but not limited to) Dr. Rich Wallace's AIML invention (bot development is largely the same regardless of platform anyway)...  This groups is also...
