If I gave you guys the code for my language acquiring program, would you incorporate it in the website? I don't have enough storage to see how smart it could get. Also, it would be interesting to see how I can refine the program if I don't have to give birth to it every time I go to use it (meaning that the program will have knowledge and not forget things). Theres plenty of fun to be had here I just want to know if you guys will let me release the first version in a nice intellectual community.

What do you mean "incorporate it in the website"? Have it learn from posts and reply to them?

Well, there is the option to get it to learn from posts, but I don't have the code prepared for that task, and no it wouldn't reply in threads, unless you guys wanted to add a response prediction function but I wouldn't want to spam threads. I was thinking maybe you could have a little link at the home page called "the wiz" or something like that and it's just a chat interface that acquires language and responds with what it has learned. It would learn from everyone and something very interesting could arise.

And I was thinking that maybe we could use a submit personality function to see what is acceptable to be incorporated in the global personality.

Please guys, this could be the perfect environment for the program

Why don't you just make a website for it and link us to it?

I seriously doubt that anyone here is willing to do any programming... so unless you already build some kind of user-interface for your code, we cannot help you.

We're talking about language here, and if that is in written form, storage cannot be the bottleneck.

 

If you have a user interface, you would be able to place that on a website, or you can even let it communicate on an IRC channel. Cap'n Refsmmat just gave you permission to place a link - essentially advertising it on our forum.

 

But I get the feeling that you actually have just a smart piece of code, which is nowhere near ready to actually communicate with humans. I think there is a bit of work to be done before that "chat" would be operational. Am I correct?

 

Maybe some of our IT experts would be able to point out some simple user interface that you could use with little effort, to allow your "code" to talk to a human.

Please let me chat with these IT experts. I don't have a user interface at the moment but I do have about 70 lines of code that suffices for having a conversation. I didn't major in computer science though so it might take some time to get it working properly. Maybe I'll try to build a UI tonight, but if we can put it up here, then I need to know what you guys want it to look like.

Thanks for the interest, I really think something fun and useful could come from this.

The IT experts, like everyone else, are just members. They will step forward on their own choice. We cannot "arrange" it.

Ok, well I kind of expect that there is a lot of work involved in getting this program up and running on a website or something like that. I'm not exactly sure what needs to be done except that it needs a user interface. Maybe I can work out a rough draft over the next few days. I also don't know how I should store all the information it acquires, that's why I asked for help. I don't know how to save the personality that the program develops. Is there anybody I can consult with about getting this done? It would speed up the process if I had someone to talk with about this.
