Can Pandorabot Be Upgraded To Aiml 2.0?


I have been using the Pandorabot plugin with some success. It is dated though and based on the old Alicebot I believe which is about 15 years old by the looks of the files it accesses.

The site has moved on and we are using a backdoor to access now. They have implemented AIML 2.0 which is greatly superior and the website interface has been substantially improved.

Is there any intent to upgrade this plugin? I can't imagine them maintaining the old site forever.

I use this functionality constantly. After reading the Google AI tutorials I am seeing this is not the chatbot solution. I believe the solution is out there, The plugin just needs updated to access it.



I Will publish in 3 or 4 weeks a plugin for a bot similar to pandora
Synbot with features greater than aiml 2.0
So be patient i need just some time to finish the integration testings
And look

I just checked out This looks great for chatbot type things. @jlucben, thank you for taking this on and working on a plugin for it. I look forward to using it.


Cant wait for this!


I'm curious, why would Google AI not make a good chat bot?


@JustinRatliff Do you have to pay for Google AI? Because if you have to pay for it then that would be a good reason not to use it... Free works for me Smile


Good to hear. I am anxious for better chat bot personality. I am curious about the SIML spec vs. the AIML spec. I was not aware it existed. Perhaps it is a construct of this company.

While writing your plugin I hope there are easy methods to make calls like you can with AIML. You have to manually edit the AIML files to insert the calls. Would be cool if it could be done via the plugin.

I don't believe Google API.AI is the way to go based on David C's posts and video on the matter.



Look at the features on the site
The siml editor is powerful no need To develop éditing in plugin

SimL can be also easily extend with new spécific tags
I have développed tags with interface To Wikipedia and weather api
In progress tag To access translator api Microsoft a way To have french responses with vision plugin

I Will try To publish as soon as possible
Doc and tutorial are in progress but not my cup of tea ....

Great, thank you. I read trough the site for a bit but I was at work and couldn't concentrate on it. I'll give a more thorough look. I did download their application though.

Any new developments are good. I am still interested in seeing the AIML 2.0 updated in the original Pandorabot control. I imagine it would be really easy but then again, I can't do it with my skills yet.


@RichardR, no I'm not being charged.
