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 )

Maybe you could suggest a topic of conversation or a layout suggestion.
All suggestions gratefully received.

Version 14 - some progress

The interface, except for window dressing issues, is largely behaving as it should. My supervisor noticed that in my earlier example the text from the bots loaded up the screen rather than down. Surely this is a simple fix??? Indeed, in the end, it was simple. However, it took some five versions to get it to behave properly. It now works and the 'break-though' was such an inconsequential fix (literally rearranging the order in a concatenated string of text - even that makes it sound harder than it was). I suppose that's just the way it goes - iterative and recursive attempts - successive approximations.

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.
