More bots 

I really lke the idea of web-bots. I can't wait till they start roaming around the web, dipping in & out of chat rooms and virtual worlds. I could imagine some chat-room predator trying to convince an AI to meet him at a motel... Then suddenly his credit disappears and his car won't start. It'd be like that Simpson's Halloween bit when the machines take over. Or was that the Matrix? Anyway...

Here's a link to a fine list of chat bots at BotSpot. Some of them will let you print out a log of your conversation. I like to try to get them to tell me about themselves, what they think of art & politics, if they believe in a supreme being. Anything that will test for limits in their self-awareness.

Oh, and here's the home of the ALICE bot: ALICE AI Foundation

And the John Lennon Artificial Intelligence Project.
