Anime chat bots

The chatbot structure is based on that of chat.eliza.

With the recent increase in the popularity of chatbots (due, in large part, to the recent 2011 Chatterbox Challenge), I’ve seen a lot of requests in various places, asking about how someone could create their own chatbot, with many of these questions coming from individuals who have no prior experience or knowledge.

The basic web-based chatbot, in its simplest form, is nothing more than a blank white web page with a form embedded in it that is the sole interface between the user (you) and the bot.

Any “upgrades” or improvements to the interface are solely the option and responsibility of the botmaster.

Basically, there are several options available to the prospective new botmaster for creating a new chatbot, and while I can’t cover every option here, I’ll try to briefly cover some of the more popular options, citing advantages and disadvantages of each.
