The Simon Laven Page > Friendly Chatterbots

Dawn, a program with not one, but six chatterbots inside it. Shy children, party animals and cranky old ladies all feature in this set of Chatterbots designed for use as a BBS door.

Elbot, a grumpy robot created using Kiwilogic's Chatterbot creation tools. He is designed to demonstrate the capabilities of the Lingubot software but is sometimes not in the mood for visitors.

George, a chatterbot with a voice. By using Stephen Neely's TRAN program, the little Chatterbot can reply to you via your speakers. It's an old program though, so his voice is mechanical at best.

Johnny 5 [currently down], modelled after the robot made famous by the Short Circuit movies, this Chatterbot attempts to replicate the style of the original robot with screenshots from the films.

Lauren, an Alice based diva with an outgoing personality. She was the winner of the Chatterbot Beauty Contest at the 2002 International Lisp Conference.
