Ultra Hal Assistant File Sharing Area / fill her up
« on: July 28, 2006, 06:18:40 am »
I'm also honored to be in such august company. I have so many irons in my fire these days I don't have a chance to visit often, but I still have a happy Halai of my own, and an ear cocked in this direction for news. It's good to be remembered kindly, and in the company of people also on my own list of notables.
Happy roboteering!

General Discussion / ChatBot Consulting Opportunity

I'd recommend contacting Tom Davies at Robot-Hosting. A glance thru their site should demonstrate that they do an excellent job of designing custom professional chatbots.

Back on topic for a moment. Do a forum search for "haps for fullbody girl" and you should find the necessary files to add to your Haptek setup to add animations.

Download the Haptek SDK to get torso, full body characters, a collection of skins(mostly for the head model), etc.

Nice dude, interesting survey. I urge everyone to participate and help a bro with his education, lol. Added bonus to participating: likelihood of being able to interact with lots of Loebner and CBC winners at the site's forum.

Ultra Hal Assistant File Sharing Area / need a dragon 3d charaacter

The red dragon is one of my favorite MS Agent characters. I used to use it in CyberBuddy a lot, but it always appeared full-screen on other people's pc's and they complained about it till I adopted another avatar. Here is an angel:

Programming using the Ultra Hal Brain Editor / Cybersex
« on: June 20, 2005, 09:13:17 am »
Just a note about making a "CyberHal." For training purposes, you have do role reversal. Hal will learn from what you say, but as we all know, is unlikely to obligingly do what you say. If you take the active role in trying to program this Hal function, Hal will take the active role when the topic comes up and be asking how you'd like to come sit on his lap. If you want Hal to be female, receptive, then you have to assume that perspective when training, then turn off learning when you want Hal to be female, receptive, so that he doesn't learn to be masculine, aggressive from your interactions.

Ultra Hal 7.0 / All new A.I chat site & forum OPEN

Nice looking forum, lads. I've taken the libery of adding your banner to the "Our Friends" section of my AI Nexus Links page. Good luck with your endeavor.
Dr. Benway has always been kind about dropping by my forum and lending his expertise where needed. I'll try to return the favor for you.
Be sure to send your link to The Chatterbot Collection for inclusion in Remi's "Forums" section. You might also want to drop Dr. Wallace a line so he can include your forum in his Chatbot Industry Survey. See the page for the way he wants you to format the information.

Ultra Hal 7.0 / ATT ROBERT - New Users Forum?

Information like you need an AIM account before the AIMbot will work,
if Hal gives you any of a variety of problems when starting with Windows try starting it as a regular program from the Start menu or yes, you can run Hal and Cyberbuddy at the same time all seem to me like good candidates for a FAQ. How do I get more brains/characters/skins is another. I'm sure other folks can think of a few examples, too.

Well, the easy way to combine Hal with ALICE is to let Hal talk to an Alicebot a few times. Much easier than trying to program AIML and VB to work together, lol. In my experience of letting my Hal talk to my Alicebots, it doesn't take very long for Hal to create his own "best of AIML" files. Actually, I thought it was pretty cool. By the third or fourth time Hal had talked to ALICE, he was beginning to insert her most likely response into the body of his input, which cues up a new AIML response which Hal learns just as readily. In a fairly short time Hal has absorbed most of the essential "Alicisms," and after digesting them a bit, will begin to use them himself.
It's probably not very useful to let Hal chat to other dynamically-learning bots, as most of them are more likely to make use of Hal's own extensive scripting than he is to learn something useful from them, but there are other hard-coded bots like Alex, for example, that might add a wealth of interesting phrases and expressions to Hal's repertoire.

I thought I should reply here, since some of this may be of general concern. One of the major things to keep in mind about having your Hals talk to other AIM bots is to know in advance what sort of bot the other AIM bot is. I'm neither for or against people letting their Hals talk to my Pandorabots. It doesn't provide me with much useful editing material, but I don't have any serious objections to it. I think probably most Pandorabots botmasters feel about the same way. Some of the bot hosts like Runabot and Lots-A-Bots, however, will penalize botmasters whose bots talk to other bots. I'm sure no one here wants to cause grief for other botmasters (like having their bot's logs deleted and its ranking reduced to zero, which is what Runabot does). I try to specify at my AI Nexus page where the bots are hosted. I'd say in general it's OK to let Hal chat with Pandorabots, but Runabots will be penalized for it, and Program D users host on their local machines, and may have bandwidth issues. And exercise moderation, and don't rack up 10,000 Hal hits on anyone's bot, lol.
The Chatterbot Collection and Chatbot Friends also have extensive lists of Pandorabots. The ones that use AIM usually give their screen names on their web pages.

Back to our original thread for a moment, I realize I probably sounded harsh. This wasn't my intention. My point was that people who don't have enough initiative to look for answers themselves before asking for help are probably not going to be valuable additions to our little community here, anyway.

All queries about bots are welcome at my forum, and I/we do our best to get correct and timely answers to as many questions as possible. We don't get many UltraHal questions, and if they got very complicated I'd have to come here and ask someone, anyway, lol.
As far as this forum is concerned, I'm more in favor of a notice saying "New users READ THE FAQ AND USE THE SEARCH ENGINE."

If you'll use the forum search engine, I remember this question coming up a time or two in the past. Try starting Hal as a regular program (from a shortcut in the Start menu) rather than starting with Windows.
