Chatbots

Chatbots are not something new: I encountered them online since 2004, when I started graduate school. You can find some of them under this link: https://sites.google.com/site/webtoolsbox/bots . There is another one called CleverBot: http://www.cleverbot.com/.

However, you can see that they are pretty dumb when you try them out. I have a feeling that those conversational models are Markov models, and the chatbots basically forget what they previously said.

A few days ago, Google put a paper on arXiv preprint that described how they applied neural network conversational models in chatbots. [Vinyals & Le 2015] In short they look for more previous sentences in the conversations. It is certainly inspired by some previous natural language processing (NLP) work from Google, especially Word2Vec that employs skip-gram models. [Mikolov et. al. 2013]

Deep learning is what a lot of big guys are trying now.

I wish to play with this chatbot.
