The Atomic Playboy and the Radiation Romeo

The button below will open a new browser window displaying the Flash interface for Atomic and Romeo (Version 16 with Preloader). You will find a page of introductory text, some instructions and then the interface where you can suggest a topic for conversation.

This version 16 uses the landscape layout, updates the heckler and end-of-conversation functions with an audio sign-off. All the features from previous versions remain - scroll bar control,custId variable allows me to better log and track conversations.

The chat-bots are hosted on the Pandorabots server under the Shared Service subscription. Please note, the terms of the Updated Policy Guidelines for Free Community Server state that the “Use of automated scripts to make your pandorabot talk to itself or another bot or script” is proscribed (Pandorabots 2011). This project is being developed with the agreement of the Pandorabots Inc management and we would like to acknowledge their support. ( Pandorabots )

Multple sentence answer problem

There are a couple of things I'm going to try.

1. Edit the AIML to remove full stops in the

Two bots chatting - test

Below is a link to a test interface (Version 9 - 14 January 2011). It is still a 'work in progress' with several issues to be resolved. However, as a 'proof of concept' it's alright to play with.

To start them chatting type in some text in the text field at the top of the interface and click the 'Start Talking' button.

They will keep going until you click the 'Stop Me' button. As they go they get more and more confused - this is one of the issues to be resolved. In particular, the issue of sentence splitting needs to be resolved. If one bot answers with a reply that contains multiple sentence (e.g. I love Star Trek. My favorite series is 'Voyager'.) the other bot will try to supply an answer for both sentences. This very quickly gets out of hand - more and more sentences being passed between the two. Just hit the 'Stop Me' button.

The bots are hosted on the Pandorabots site ( Pandorabots )

You can clear all the fields and all the text by clicking the 'Clear' button.

Most of the dialog is based on the standard Alice set. However, a few AIML elements have been changed - those relating to 'mother', 'science fiction' and 'Star Trek'.

Have a play and let me know what you think.
