Dhamma Bot

Postby Moth » Mon Aug 29, 2011 8:32 pm

I am interested in writing an A.I. chat bot which essentially creates the experience of asking questions to the Buddha or his disciples by responding with quotes from the Tipitika. For example if you asked,

User: "what is the cause of suffering?"

Bot: "It is craving, which brings renewal of being, is accompanied by delight and lust, and delights in this and that; that is, craving for sensual pleasures, craving for being and craving for non-being. This is called the origin of suffering."

User: "what is the escape from suffering?

Bot: "it is the remainderless fading away and ceasing, the giving up, relinquishing, letting go and rejecting of that same craving. This is called the cessation of suffering."

etc

I am posting this here to see if anyone would be interested in joining in on the project. It would probably be done in either javascript or php and use regular expressions. If you are interested contact me here or at [email protected]. Thanks :)

Metta
May you be happy. May you be a peace. May you be free from suffering.

hahaha, yes unfortunately Eliza doesn't seem to possess much wisdom. Then again, perhaps your life does have something to do with your wanting to understand the Dhamma.
May you be happy. May you be a peace. May you be free from suffering.
