I installed an “artificial intelligence” bot at my work shop in Second Life.
The bot is made up of three parts:
- A hosted account on pandorabots.com (Thanks Ennui!)
- A body form sculpture made out of Second Life prims (Thanks Jan!)
- A wonderful script by Angela Talamasca that communicates with my account on pandorabots.com.
Use the pandorabots.com chat window to communicate with the bot without having to go into Second Life.
I also downloaded the source code for Knowee. Knowee is a distributed address book implemented in PHP and MySQL. Knowee looks like it provides a SPARQL endpoint which I’m sure I can make good use of. I’m planning on using that to experiment with RDF at the workshop. I hope to get lots of semantic web stuff hooked up to the bot and other features of the workshop.
In some ways, everything we have so far looks rather primitive but with some time and energy, the ability of the workshop to inform and realistically interact with you will be astounding.
