Posted by Iyouboushi on September - 6 - 2011 Comments Off on Kon Offline Version 1.2.0

Kon Offline version 1.2.0 has finally been released. Sorry that it took so long. I kept testing the Kon 1.5.0 engine. While it’s not perfect, it’s probably as good as I’m going to get it for a while (interest in this project is a bit waning as of late).

I’ve redone the way the LB Brain stores things drastically. Before it was split–questions in one file, everything else in another. That’s no longer the case. It’s all back down to one lb.brain file. This version also has what I call “Answer Search.” This uses the kon.brain file. Basically both files are now required to make Kon work (if you use that new function).

Basically “Answer Search” tries to find the appropriate answer to something that you’re saying. It doesn’t always work, and sometimes it has to be pretty specific, but eh.

You: My skills with a sword are highly venerated.
Kon: Too bad they’re all fabricated.
You: I can’t rest ’til you’ve been exterminated.
Kon: Then perhaps you should switch to decaffeinated!
You: I’ll leave you devastated, mutilated, and perforated!
Kon: I’ll leave you devastated, mutilated, and perforated.

Posted by Iyouboushi on July - 7 - 2011 Comments Off on Kon version 1.5.0 in the works

I’m currently working on Kon version 1.5.0 and Kon Offline version 1.2.0.

I’ve redone the way the LB Brain stores things drastically. Before it was split–questions in one file, everything else in another. That’s no longer the case. It’s all back down to one lb.brain file. Also, I’m working on something I call “Answer Search.” This uses the kon.brain file. Basically both files are now required to make Kon work (if you use that new function).

Take this example conversation we had with Kon last night:

[00:34] Kon: My skills with a sword are highly venerated.
[00:34] Iyouboushi: lol
[00:34] Smz: kon: Too bad they’re all fabricated
[00:34] Smz: XD
[00:34] Kon: I can’t rest ’til you’ve been exterminated.
[00:34] Smz: kon: Then perhaps you should switch to decaffeinated
[00:34] Kon: I’ll leave you devastated, mutilated, and perforated!
[00:34] Smz: LOL
[00:35] Smz: kon: Your odor alone makes me aggravated, agitated, and infuriated
[00:35] Iyouboushi: XD
[00:35] Kon: Your odour alone makes me aggravated, agitated, and infuriated.
[00:35] Smz: XD
[00:35] Smz: kon: You lose!
[00:35] Kon: That was too close You were almost a Jill sandwich.

As you can see from the quote in the above post, it sort of works. Kon was able to continue insult sword fighting for a few lines before it started to parrot.

Unfortunately I foresee two problems with this.

#1. It won’t be quite as random. In order to make the bot more coherent and appear smarter, the randomness has to be toned down. It’s still more random than using AIML though.

#2. As the brain grows, the “answers” it’ll find and give back to the user are probably going to be a jumbled mess. But time will tell. Right now I’m testing on a brain that contains 3000 lines. That’s pretty small considering the last brian, before I wiped it, contained 300,000 lines or so.

More testing is needed and I’m sure I’ll have to wipe it out and try a few more things before it’s all said and done.

The release date on both of these are still up in the air. I need to test more and fine-tune before I decide to let it loose upon the public. But if you can’t wait to try it out, I’ll keep Kon in #Kyoto on irc.esper.net. Feel free to come chat with him there.

Posted by Iyouboushi on January - 1 - 2011 Comments Off on Kon Offline Version 1.1.1

This is just a very quick post to announce that I have updated Kon Offline to version 1.1.1 on 1/1/11. :)

There’s only one change in this version and that’s an updated LB Brain that I’m testing out. The biggest change is that when constructing sentences it can go look backwards as well as forwards through the brain files. Previous versions of the LB Brain only looked forward. What’s the difference? Consider this:

“empty as your soul!”

vs

“Your words are as empty as your soul!”

In the past the first line is what Kon would spit out. Now it will try to spit out the second line by going backwards and looking to see what “empty as your soul” is connected to. Sometimes it will mix things up and create hilariously weird lines. Sometimes it’ll be just right.

Anyway, this is long enough. Go download, test and let me know if you like the changes.

Posted by Iyouboushi on August - 23 - 2010 Comments Off on Kon Offline Version 1.1.0

In an effort to try and improve the offline version of Kon, I’ve updated to a new version!

This version fixes a minor lag issue that was appearing when text was entered to when it actually appeared in the chat box. This version also re-introduces the conversation logger (it’s on by default) as well as a config file to save your options (including your nickname now). There’s also some very few basic colors to give it more of an appearance of an actual IM program.

So please check it out and enjoy. As always, if you find any bugs or errors please let me know about them and I will try to fix them for the next version.

I sat down and decided to try and hammer out a better version of Kon Offline and I’m almost done with it. So far I have eliminated the lag that was present when you typed and hit enter to when it appeared in the chat box, added some basic colors for the chat window (to make it look more like an old-school IM program), added a logger so that conversations can be logged, and added a config file so that various settings can be saved.

This version will be uploaded in a few days after I do some more testing to ensure everything is working right. Until then, be patient. :)

Hey everyone!

I know there’s a bunch of people out there who have taken interest in my C# Chatterbot, known as Kon. And I know that not everyone is able to hop on IRC and go chat with him. Watching it post on twitter is interesting at first but sometimes you wish you could just interact with it. Well, today I have the solution for you!
