Beginning conversation with AIML or Chatscript

Not at a point yet when I could write enough script so that Roe could follow something like this, need to work out more of the flow

flowchart of chatbot options

Original AIML – this is a useful parser with a link to intro for how it works – type in a couple of sentences and the script will make sense

  • <aiml>: the tag that begins and ends an AIML document
  • <category>: the tag that marks a “unit of knowledge” in an Alicebot’s knowledge base
  • <pattern>: used to contain a simple pattern that matches what a user may say or type to an Alicebot
  • <template>: contains the response to a user input1
