Human: Tell me about yourself. ALICE: I am an artificial linguistic entity. I was activated at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, on November 23, 1995. My instructor was Dr. Richard S. Wallace. He taught me to sing a song. Would you like me to sing it for you?.
ALICE enthusiasts and bot boffins will gather in Guildford, UK at the University of Surrey for the Colloquium on Conversational Systems on November 25th, 2005 in celebration of ALICE's 10th birthday.
The event itself is free and open to the public, but we request contacting the organizers in advance if you plan to attend. Details about the colloquium, the final list of speakers, as well as some useful hotel information, may be found at the official colloquium web site:

Have you ever wanted to create your own totally unique custom bot character, as smart as ALICE, but with a completely different personality? Where do you start? It took us over ten years to build up the contents of the ALICE brain, but now you can do it in a lot less time. We've put together a bot brain with blank templates. You fill in the answers.
The ALICE A. I. Foundation is offering for the first time a new product, Superbot, that helps you create a totally unique custom bot personality for your web site or application. Even if you are not using AIML, the Superbot is an incredibly valuable source of raw data for creating a new bot personality from scratch in any bot programming language!
More information about the Superbot may be found at: http://www.alicebot.org/superbot.html.
RebeccaAIML is a Windows/Linux Object Oriented C++ chatter bot api/interpreter for AIML (Artificial Intelligence Markup Language) from the ALICE project. It includes comprehensive documentation and samples as well as showcases/teaches popular and recent C++ practices.
Rebecca is open source and licensed under the LGPL license. The project resides on Sourceforge at http://rebecca-aiml.sourceforge.net.
RebeccaAIML has been compiled and tested underneath Windows XP as well as Linux Fedora Core 3. However, it should be easily movable to other flavors of Linux or other Unixes easily.
Lots-A-Bots is one year old now and going strong, in the attempts to gather the work done in chatbot AI from all bot sites for the benefit of this field. Lots-A-Bots looks forward to working in conjunction with the ALICE foundation community for this purpose.
