However, the Sweetie 1.0 project was limited in scale because it was operated by humans.
The follow-up, Sweetie 2.0, due to be introduced later this year, is an artificial intelligence (a “chatbot”) specifically designed for the task and far more scalable as it can be deployed in multiple instances simultaneously.
The Chatbot hosting companies i use are personalityforge, Pandorabots, Chatbot4U, Love droids, Rebot me (back online), and SECOND EGO.
IF you use one of the companies consider donating to them.
Chatbots4U has the advantage of having some apps you can add to the bot and the method of creating it is fairly simple but you end up doing the most work because they dont understand as well as the rest.
Rebot me and second ego are also very easy to customize but again without out templates you will end up doing most of the work or they are really going to fail at conversations.
They are from three different chat bot hosting companies.
Except for two of them (Dusky and Lucy ) they are rated for teens and up. Some might even flirt with you but don't exepct it to actually go very far if you push them and they will smart off to you.
However, Ms Kuyda is not the only one to be inspired by the dark show.
LA-based entrepreneur Josh Bocanegra has been recording audio of his mother, so that when she dies, he can continue having phone chats with her.
All of these links where current at the time I added them.
If you find a link that is not current then please email me I have several chatbots.
In some ways pandora makes it the easiest for you if you use the standard aiml.
