These code examples will walk you through how to create your own artificial intelligence chat bot using Python.

He made a bot called A. Artificial Linguistics Internet Computer Entity which won several artificial intelligence awards. Interestingly, one of the Turing tests to look for artificial intelligence is to have a human chat with a bot through a text interface for several minutes and see if they thought it was a human. It is standard to create a startup file called std-startup.

In this case we will create a basic file that matches one pattern and takes one action. We want to match the pattern load aiml b , and have it load our aiml brain in response. Above we created the AIML file that only handles one pattern, load aiml b. It won't work unless we actually create it.

We will match two basic patterns and respond. You can also add random responses like this. This one will respond randomly when it receives a message that starts with "One time I ". It can be fun to write your own AIML files, but it can be a lot of work. I think it needs around 10, patterns before it starts to feel realistic. There was one floating around before called stdpercent.

There is also one that lets you play BlackJack with the bot. All of that is important and will make up the brain of the bot, but it's just information right now. The bot needs to come to life. You could use any language to implement the AIML specification, but some nice person has already done that in Python. For Python 3, the source code remains exactly the same. You still import the package as aiml but when installing it with pip you use the name python-aiml. This is the simplest program we can start with.

It creates the aiml object, learns the startup file, and then loads the rest of the aiml files. After that, it is ready to chat, and we enter an infinite loop that will continue to prompt the user for a message. You will need to enter a pattern the bot recognizes. The patterns recognized depend on what AIML files you loaded. We create the startup file as a separate entity so that we can add more aiml files to the bot later without having to modify any of the programs source code.

We can just add more files to learn in the startup xml file. When you start to have a lot of AIML files, it can take a long time to learn.

This is where brain files come in. After the bot learns all the AIML files it can save its brain directly to a file which will drastically speed up load times on subsequent runs. You can send the load message to the bot while it is running and it will reload the AIML files. Keep in mind that if you are using the brain method as it is written above, reloading it on the fly will not save the new changes to the brain. You will either need to delete the brain file so it rebuilds on the next startup, or you will need to modify the code so that it saves the brain at some point after reloading.

See the next section on creating Python commands for the bot to do that. If you want to give your bot some special commands that run Python functions, then you should capture the input message to the bot and process it before sending it to kernel. We could get our input from anywhere though. Perhaps a TCP socket, or a voice-to-text source. Process the message before it goes through AIML.

You may want to skip the AIML processing on certain messages. For example, if one person tells the bot their name is Alice, and the other person tells the bot their name is Bob, the bot can differentiate the people. To specify which session you are using you pass it as a second parameter to respond. This is good for having personalized conversations with each client. You will have to generate your own session Id some how and track them. Note that saving the brain file does not save all the session values.

And the bot will respond with That is interesting that you have a dog named Max And if you ask the bot:. View the discussion thread. Want some programming help? Schedule time with me! Skip to main content. What is AIML? Create Standard Startup File It is standard to create a startup file called std-startup. Kernel kernel. Kernel if os. The bot will respond: Your dog's name is Max.



Because the A. Free AIML sets [5] in several languages have been developed and made available by the user community. Since early , The A. E foundation has been working on a draft specification for AIML 2.

It was developed by Dr. Most of AIML interpreters are open source programs. The winner is Fred Roberts and Artificial Solutions of www. This is a basic AIML coding instructable. We will simply used Notepad. That's it, you see it right, Windows Notepad!
