The bot can be configured with an RSS feed of your choosing for regular chat updates.
Your community site news, financials, stocks, government, and academic syndications are at your fingertips.
Spanish researchers from the University of Deusto near Bilbao have designed the chat bot, called Negobot, using artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and machine learning so that it can convincingly chat like a teenager, with as much of the slang, misspellings, memory, and conversational ability that comes with a human teenager. Carlos Laorden, told the BBC that past chat bots have tended to be too predictable: The most innovative aspect of Negobot may be a key differentiator that makes it appear more lifelike: namely, the incorporation of the advanced decision-making strategies used in game theory.
In a paper about their creation, the researchers describe how they’ve taught the robot to consider a conversation itself as a game.
For example, imagine you had a question like 'What's there to do in here? The robot can answer with a predefined line like 'Chat, play games and plenty more...' or pull your chat's info summary from the database, saving you time when dealing with frequently asked questions and other simple queries on your chat website. There is a one minute delay between each bot enable or disable action too, so your robot will appear to naturally log in and out of rooms - just like a normal video chat user would. It can be set to greet newcomers to the chatroom after they log in for the first time.
The greeting message can be customised and will include the visitor's name.
The chat bot can then be moved into a custom user group with special permissions to suit your needs.
This capability enables you to change the bot's profile information, avatar picture and icon.
Building on that kind of information, a new chat bot will serve as a virtual Lolita, posing as a 14-year-old schoolgirl, with the aim of lulling paedophiles into thinking they’re human and thus making it easier for law enforcement to intercept them in chat rooms.
The robot also won't issue a welcome greeting to the same user twice on the same day.
Don't want the chat robot to have guest level privileges? You can create a user account and assign it to the robot via the 'Username' field through the control panel.
Chat Robot is clever enough to request, rotate and refresh the feed by itself.
It will post the news items at regular intervals whilst checking if there is more recent information available at the source for your flash chat. Active traders will appreciate the ability to swap out feeds on the fly and get rapid updates from a broad spectrum of standard services.
