Projects / Anna


Anna is a set of AIML (Artificial Intelligence Markup Language) files that constitute a chat bot. Unlike other Chat Bots, Anna declares herself to be human, and then has a past, personality, and identity built up from there. Anna is designed to win the 2002 Loebner Prize Competition, and is based on the landmark work of the ALICE AI foundation.
