Literary MUD Gets Oscar Wilde Bot

"The literary-orientated, text-based multiuser role-playing game TriadCity has implemented an automated character based on the personality - or at least the sayings - of legendary wit Oscar Wilde. 'Oscar' is an AIML-based chatterbot configured around an extensive database of Wilde's witticisms and epigrams. Unlike conventional chatterbots, Oscar doesn't attempt to engage in long-running conversations with meaningful state. Instead, he responds to inputs by choosing the most appropriate epigram in his database, making him a sort of walking repository of clever one-liners."
