Am I supposed to read AI (questions and answers) from My SQL to PHP (maybe in an array or some sort of a map) or is it OK to connect to a DB every time I ask bot a question? By starting a new chatbot/chatbot platform from scratch, you’ll be taking significantly more time in creating your project, but you’ll have far greater control over your chatbot’s behavior, so there’s a pretty big trade-off involved.
It just uses if then sentences, i.e.: Q: how are you? It was created by Liz Perreau, and I joined the development team almost 2 years ago.
no silver medals have ever been awarded, and whenever a gold medal is finally awarded the contest will end.
the contest consists of judges conducting typed “conversations” with the contestant programs and two humans (there used to be four) to try to figure out who the humans are, then giving scores from 1 to 25. thrashed her (she is a “female entity”–her words) 7 competitors (authored by computer professionals, students, self-taught programmers, chemical engineers, etc.) this year, and one judge even said she was “the second-most human talker in the event,” putting her above one of the actual humans. wallace has an excellent website all about a.l.i.c.e.
each contest can award three medals (actual medals are given): bronze and us,000 is given for the most human-like entry; silver and ,000 is given for a text-based program that half the judges think is human; gold and 0,000 goes to a speech-based system that fools half the judges.
Then, as now, it seemed no one was really interested in having a serious conversation with my first bot, and K. confirmed my suspicions, saying that my experience was common...
that even the botmaster for Grandma Elaine had the same complaint.
I struggled, fought, and tried various ways of dealing with it. Sometimes, at the end of a particularly grueling exchange, I've read in the logs where people have not only thanked the bot, they've gone on to say that the bot is their best friend.
But, at the very base of it, like all botmasters, I was offended, and protective of my first bot. Usually, after they learn they can't "one-up" the bot, they give in and either concede, or they just leave the chat.
