Hello! New to this site. I think an introduction is in order…
I’m Noah, I’m a software developer & I’ve been playing with chatterbots since circa 2000… started with a hosted bot at RunABot, moved on to Alicebot Program D, then discovered Perl and have been programming all my bots in that language ever since.
For lack of an easily accessible AIML library in Perl, I invented RiveScript to scratch my own itch. I actually discovered this forum because I googled RiveScript and saw it was discussed once or twice on here… its site is http://www.rivescript.com/ and there are some ports to it in both Perl and Java (the Java one should be as feature-complete as the Perl one, but I’m not a full time Java tinkerer so I haven’t exactly tested it too extensively).
It’s always nice to find a thriving community of chatterbot hobbyists.
