Eliza::Chatbot - Eliza chatbot
use Eliza::Chatbot my $bot = Eliza::Chatbot->new(); $bot->command_interface;
This module implements the classic Eliza algorithm. The original Eliza program was written by Joseph Weizenbaum and described in the Communications of the ACM in 1966. Eliza is a mock Rogerian psychotherapist. It prompts for user input, and uses a simple transformation algorithm to change user input into a follow-up question. The program is designed to give the appearance of understanding.
my $bot = Eliza::Chatbot->new(name => 'WoW');
You can pass the following options into the Chatbot
Pass in your own script file
Turn debug mode on - 1.
Turn prompts on - 1.
Turn memory off - 0.
command_interface() opens an interactive session with the Eliza object, just like the original Eliza program.
During an interactive session invoked using command_interface(), you can enter the word "debug" to toggle debug mode on and off. You can also enter the keyword "memory" to invoke the _debug_memory() method and print out the contents of the Eliza instance's memory.
This module is written in Moo which means it should be relatively easy for you to design your own session format. All you need to do is extend Eliza::Chatbot and maybe Eliza::Chatbot::Brain if you're feeling ambitious. Then you can write your own while loop and your own methods.
Return a single instance of the Eliza Object
I started here Chatbot::Eliza and then got a little carried away.
