Willbot is a learning AI. He was released in February 2016 but he shares the same database with Cleverbot and Evie. So the things he says were learned from a human being at some point in the last 10 years, and stored in a giant database. Willbot figures out what to say using proprietary software created by Rollo Carpenter and Existor.
Willbot's capacities go beyond mere verbal or textual interactions; the AI utilised in Willbot also extends to controlling the timing and degree of facial expressions and movement. His visually displayed reactions and emotions blend and vary in surprisingly complex ways, and a range of voices are delivered to your browser, along with lip synching information, to bring the avatar to life! Willbot uses Flash if your browser supports it, but still works even without, thanks to our own Existor Avatar Player technology, allowing you to enjoy her to the full on iOS and Android.
Along with the continued development of our avatars, we are also investigating machine learning and deep learning techniques, and working on the creation of a short term memory for our bots. This will allow humans interacting with our AI to develop genuine human-like relationships with their bot; any personal information that is exchanged will be remembered by the bot and recalled in the correct context at the appropriate time. The bots will get to know their human companion, and utilise this knowledge to form warmer and more personal interactions.
