Jenny18 - A Cybersex Bot Implemented in Eliza
'eliza' is a program that talks to you, pretending to be a psychologist. its script of possible responses is super tiny, so it doesn't fool anyone. or so i thought.
IRC is a network full of chat rooms (or "channels") where a lot of scary internet people (or "perverts") hang out. my friend reduz found a version of 'eliza' that could go on IRC. he put it on IRC. a lot of people from other countries thought it was a real woman, so naturally they tried to have sex with it. they got frustrated quickly. reduz is a bad man.
reduz asked me to make the eliza bot better. i'm not smart enough to make like neural networks and natural language parsing and contextual branching decision matrices, but i sure as hell know how to talk like a guy pretending to be a dumb girl. it is sort of like
jenny18: heeeeeyyyy how r u? =) wanna sex? lol
so i replaced eliza's tiny, boring script with a massive dumb blonde script that has like 3,800 responses on all sorts of topics, but mostly sex. jenny18 is very horny and she loves talking to horny guys. and everyone knows the best place to talk to horny guys is on dalnet irc sex channels.
so i took jenny18 there.
eventually an actual real artificial intelligence professor from Ireland noticed this little page. he came up with the idea long before i did, but i obsessed for hundreds of hours over it, so he was pretty impressed. this goes to show that lots of challenge in AI is in speaking naturally, and on the internet most people speak like idiots, so you can sort of cheat around a lot of things. i wrote a little editorial on that phenomenon a while back, too.
e-mail me at email@example.com if you think this is cool. to answer some questions: no, not a single line of jenny18 dialogue is typed in, it's all coming from the bot's script. also no, i'm not releasing the script just yet, i am working on a second, even cooler version! and finally, making sex bots is just a disturbing side hobby, my real job is writing music for video games!
