About this site and its content

This site and others like it would not be possible with out the tireless work and dedication of men and women who created the foundations of the virtual assistants that many are using today. Some with little or no pay or recognition. They were the brave explorers of a new frontier of artificial intelligence that you use today.This site only explores one aspect of it. I also want to give a special thank you to art who pokes me and reminds me to take care of my site. He has contributed a lot to this site and I am very grateful to him.

So come with me and explore the fascinating world of Artificial Intelligence in the form of chatterbots also known as Chatbots, Virtual Assistants and other AI programs here. You wont find a more uptodate directory around. I search the web for content you want.

Cortana, Siri and other AI agents are now finally becoming popular after years of disappointments in progress. AI is becoming more intelligent.

In 1950 Alan Turing wrote a article called "Computing Machinery and Intelligence" which started it all. From there came the now famous Turing test which set the background for the Loebner Prize. Dr. Loebner pledged a Grand Prize of $100,000 and a Gold Medal for the first computer whose responses were indistinguishable from a human. The first winner of the Loebner Prize was 1991 Joseph Weintraub with his chatbot ELIZA. Many now feel that the turing test is a inadequate test because recently a chatbot won by pretending to not know english well.

Chatbots also known as conversational agents are just one small part of the growing field of articial intelligence (AI). AI is part of many areas from robots and smart phones to virtual assistants and deep learning.

There are even companies that will let you create a virtual you that some claim they can eventually be uploaded into a robot or a new body made from cells of yours that they store.

If you have a company , website or blog about AI / Deep Learning contact us to be listed. I do create websites and chatbots (hosted at a chatbot hosting site of your choice) So contact me for more information.

If it is game AI also known as Alife or artificial life your more interested in then head over to my other website AIVPETZ™ (My other website)

I list links relating to Artificial Intelligence and Chatter-bots. I dig for links in various places so you don't have to. Some sources are on the Internet, places you can download them such as cnet or sourceforge and many from the AI forums. You will find links here that most search engines place so far back that it is never found. I check out each link I find to see if it works and to get a idea of what the site is about.
