Pose questions to the virtual US 2012 presidential candidates and the conversational system will respond with actual quotes as once said by their real-life counterparts. Powered by the Ultra Hal AI engine.
Additional comments by developer Zabaware:
Have you ever wished you could be the one asking the questions during a presidential debate? With this site, we give you easy and direct access to the positions each candidate has (and has had) on the specific issues that are most important to you as an individual.
It's very easy. Simply type your question, and get your response. The response you receive will be a direct quote from each candidate. There is no middle man, there is no bias, and there is no filter. Using this tool, we hope to create a more open and honest debate.
We think this system is so easy to use that with even the smallest amount of effort, you can become very informed about what each candidate has to say on issues which are most important to you. We even show you exactly where the quotes come from for each response. Feel free to check them yourself. We hope the information you find here will spark more curiosity and lead you to do further research on your own.
