Catty Bot

Catty is a chat bot which doesn’t try to tackle the complicated world of AI, but instead interfaces the world wide web via Google to come off as intelligent (I tried similar with Egobot of 2003). [Via the forum.]

“Catty v3 is an exercise in artificial futility. It is a chatter bot that does not try to understand or simulate human language, cannot learn, does not know meanings, knows no facts. Instead, it interfaces you to the entire web by using Google search engine to look up sentences that may be relevant to what you are saying.
Catty is the way the web is: it may not always make sense, it may offend you with no apparent reason, but more importantly, it will never respond with canned, predictable responses you might have seen elsewhere.”
