Gregory G. Leedberg created Daisy for DOS which evolved to Billy on Windows. These are AI Chat Bots that brought me hours of AI flavored happiness in the year 2000.
Even though these programs serve purposes which may make them seem like toys, the artificial intelligence developed to support these programs is actually quite advanced. The goal is to advance this AI within these programs, so that it may eventually be applied to real-world problems.
Daisy is from Y2K runs on MSDOS. It made me laugh for hours. Billy is even Smarter. If you can teach billy a thing or two about your own mind then you will be soon be “Talking to yourself ”
Learn how to give someone a piece of one’s mind but do not try that on a Smart Bot. Then you will lose your Peace of Mind.
Students can learn a lot by using this software and understand how to make Interactive Bots.
