This is the ChatScript project ("chatscript")
This project was registered on SourceForge.net on Jan 6, 2011, and is described by the project team as follows:
ChatScript is a "next Generation" chatbot engine, based on the one that powered Suzette, that won the 2010 Loebner Competition. ChatScript has many advanced features and capabilities that, when properly utilitized, permit extremely clever bots to be programmed. There is also a potentially useful ontology of nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs for understanding meaning.
Version: 3.1 Created: 5/18/2013
In early 2012, Bruce did some consulting/support work for a company to help them produce a couple of corporate chatbots that use the ChatScript engine. This company (unnamed here to prevent legal entanglements) asserts that any changes to the ChatScript engine during this time are their "intellectual property", and as such, cannot be included in the public release of the ChatScript engine. As a result, it was decided to "roll back" ChatScript to version 2.0 in an effort to prevent a lengthy, expensive lawsuit. However, Bruce is working on ChatScript version 3, which will address the legal issues, and development of ChatScript will continue from there. Please stay tuned for further details.
We've added a number of documentation files, and moved most of them to a more convenient location. Please check out the Documentation Page for more details.
We've teamed up with chatbots.org to provide a discussion and support forum for ChatScript. The URL is http://www.chatbots.org/ai_zone/viewforum/44/ and you're encouraged to join us there, not only to ask questions, but also to discuss the project, make feature requests, or whatever you like, regarding ChatScript. Come on over, and join in on the conversations!
We're pleased to announce a new addition to the ChatScript project. Dave Morton from Geek Cave Creations has joined the team, bringing with him his enthusiasm, insights and skills. We are all looking forward to a successful relationship. Dave will be primarily assisting with maintaining the web pages here at Source Forge, along with monitoring bug reports and feature requests here. He's also agreed to write a tutorial for ChatScript, from the perspective of a new botmaster, though this will probably take a short while to complete, since he's still learning, himself. Also, when he comes up to speed on ChatScript, he will be able to answer basic questions as they arise for new users.
