Neo (nickname: Neobot) is a chatterbot of the Betabot family which uses the ProgramPY-SH engine and uses Xaiml files as the knowledge databases. The core of Neo (ProgramPY-SH) is written in Python3.x and BASH.
NOTE: Neo does not work on Windows or mobile devices. Neo was designed specifically for Linux; the program works on Unix systems. Cross-platform support is currently being added.
Neo's development started March 30, 2012 by Devyn Collier Johnson, NCLA, Linux+, LPIC-1, DCTS. Neo uses the ProgramPY-SH engine which reads Xaiml files instead of AIML files. Xaiml stands for eXtended Artificial Intelligence Markup Language and was first made August 31, 2012 by Devyn Collier Johnson, NCLA, Linux+, LPIC-1, DCTS. The ProgramPY-SH engine (or Pysh) is written in BASH and Python3.x. All chatterbots that run on the ProgramPY-SH engine are known as Betabots. Before version 0.6a, Neo was called Betabot, but now, Betabot refers to any ProgramPY-SH based chatterbot.
