Speaking with Bots (Part I)

This is my first post on the blog,  I will begin speaking with “Bots” , analizing them, studying their behaviours and their answers. But before I will do that,  it is a good idea to know what is a bot and in this case the type one that I found is a “chatbot” and here is the definition in wikipedia about this programs :

“A chatter robot, chatterbot, chatbot or char is a computer program designed to simulate an intelligent conversation with one or more human users via auditory or textual methods, primarily for engaging in small talk.The primary aim of such simulation has been to fool the user into thinking that the program’s output has been produced by a human (the Turing test). Programs playing this role are sometimes referred to as Artificial Conversational Entities, talk bots or chatterboxes.

In addition, however, chatterbots are often integrated into dialog systems for various practical purposes such as online help, personalised service, or information acquisition. Some chatterbots use sophisticated natural language processing systems, but many simply scan for keywords within the input and pull a reply with the most matching keywords, or the most similar wording pattern, from a textual”.

It is easy to  recognize when you speak with a chatbot but sometimes it can be confused for some of the residents. In other situations, some residents possible may ask to a bot for a date or ask them their email address and most of the time you would get a unreasonable answer!. I was in helfell when I found a more than 3 bots in the main sim each one on different positions, one of them with a funny name and I decided that this will be my first conversation with this bot. I will refer her as “First Bot”:
