Thanks for the notice, Knytetrypper, make sure you let us know when you are ready to accept and we will post the announcement as a thread (or have you post one on the Guestblog).]]>
That’s cool. Just let me know when you want to get together about it. I’ve already voted at CBC, so can’t help you any more, there, lol. I don’t mind if you post some interesting chats, etc., at my forum to promote Alex a bit more, in the meantime.
I’m sort of relieved. I’d happily jump in and do a marathon page-building session to have such a fine bot to feature, but I’d much more happily tinker it together gradually. To my delight, AI Nexus has grown large enough over the past year or so that I need to go to a multi-page format, anyway. So I’ll just include plans for the new section in the reorganization.
For what it’s worth, lol, I guess that’s breaking bot news right here at WRT: AI Nexus soon to be open to all bots with a webpage avatar.
It’s nice to know Alex has its fans :)
I’m rather busy right now with the ChatterBox Challenge, but I’d love to have ‘Kirsty’ featured on your “A.I. Nexus-General” page.
I’m thinking about how I can add images and sound to the downloadable version of Alex, so working out how to use Blender and making up an avatar for Kirsty will be good practice.
Can’t promise it’ll be soon though. At least a few weeks, possibly a month or two. I’m currently trying to drum up support for Alex for in the CBC, so other project have to wait!]]>
Hmm. Interesting dilemma, John. Yes, A.I. Nexus is “dedicated to the children of ALICE,” so all the bots listed are AIML bots with avatars. But I’m also an Alex fan, myself, and would love to be able to showcase your bot, as well. Not that you need featuring on my pages, lol. Your bot would bring more status to my pages than the other way around. Alex is already a world-class bot, whereas both I and my project are still of neophyte status. So I’ll offer this idea for your feedback: If you’re willing to spend a few evenings creating an avatar page for Kirsty Pierce, I’ll create an “A.I. Nexus-General” page to showcase bots of all types which feature an avatar. I have a couple of non-ALICE bots, myself, to go along with Kirsty as page-starters, and like the original AI Nexus site, it would be open to any bots with avatars whose botmasters want to participate. It’s something I’m likely to do at some time in the future, anyway, but if I have an opportunity to start it up with as prestigious a bot as Alex’s online personality, this may be the perfect time to begin.]]>
In general you may find A.I. Nexus to be a helpful resource for exploring the basic premise of this topic. A unique avatar is the minimum basic requirement for inclusion… I’ve attempted to assemble as diverse a collection as possible, with the common characteristic that their developers have attempted to personify their bots by creating a unique avatar.
Is that in addition to being an ALICE-bot/being written in AIML?
For example, my bot A.I. Alex (and its online personality Kirsty Pierce) was written from the ground up in the Python programming language. If I spend a few evenings with Blender and make up an avatar for Kirsty, would you included her on the A.I. Nexus?]]>
