Testing a Bot


This bot is produced by Daden and can be seen here. As you will see she has extremely limited language ability, but still it is pretty advanced for a bot. The problem probably is that she is asking you to ask anything. Maybe she should be more directive, like an automated phone line. But it was good fun, and impressive work by Daden Limited, whoes bot did give a good deal of information. One suggestion, maybe she should not be blonde and her favorite colour could be something other than pink?
