Who is Simon Laven?
The Simon Laven Page > Teachable Chatterbots

Corby, an intelligent conversation robot that simulates human verbal behaviour. It is based the stimulus-response model to use statements provided by the user to provide appropriate responses.

Dobot, a chatterbot that can be taught words, names and sentences. It can also customize the way you want it to reply to certain phrases. He can become very smart, but it depends on his teacher.

Jabberwacky, a wacky, humorous and surprisingly human bot that has learnt from millions of users, in many styles and languages. Warning: you may get hooked.

Leo and Dante, teachable chatterbots that learn from your conversation. However, as the author knows, starting from a clear database can be frustrating, so one is provided for you to build on.

MegaHal, not to be confused with the 2001 computer, Megahal was created by Jason Hutchens as a web experiment to learn what the public teach him, just like a baby does.

Niall, The Non-Intelligent Acquired Language Learner is another chatterbot which in the beginning knows absolutely nothing. Created by Mat Peck, it is up to you to teach it.

Nicole, inspired by Mat Peck, the Nearly Intelligent Computer Operated Language Examiner is an attempt to simulate a conversation by learning how words are related to other words.

Omnibot, a Chatterbot that knows very little. However, like the other two, the more it is taught, the more it then knows. Be advised that to do this requires you to have a lot of spare time.
