Hy Vasyle01 (talk) , 27 March 2016 (UTC) SHRDLU was an experiment in natural language understanding, but it hardly qualifies as a chatterbot.
If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks. The crucial difference is that SHRDLU did know what it was talking about -- or at least "attempted" to.
This article is or was the subject of a Wiki Education Foundation-supported course assignment. Its purpose, unlike a chatterbot, wasn't just trying to convince human operators that a "real person" was on the other end (except indirectly -- but then any human being qualifies as one, too.
It's not going to be very helpful for 99% of our readers.
I think we should, if not remove it outright, recast this as pseudocode, and, if it would be helpful, provide an external link to source code.
— Matt , (UTC) We could certainly recast the program as pseudocode as an aid to comprehension.
I contributed the code in answer to the request at the top of this page, so the source code is a response to demand.
It didn't, I figure I must have messed something up somewhere.
My point is, it would be nice if the code was commented, or if the variable names were longer than one character...
However if QBASIC is no good perhaps you can suggest a better language. -- Derek Ross | Talk , 2004 Sep 23 (UTC) For people who want to try out or implement a chatterbot, I think the set of external links to software for various platforms is sufficient.
I'd point out that the request at the top of the page asked for "links to open source bots", not for actual source code to be placed within the article.
