Rob Medeksza Interview

Loebner 2007 Winner - It's that time of year again, when after many monthsand even years of hard work, programmers finallyoffer their chatbots up forjudgement intheannual Loebner Prize competition. Although there were only three entrants this year, competition was still stiff, especially considering one of the entrants was the two-time winner Rollo Carpenter. However, by the final reckoning of the competition that challenges programmers to create the most human chatbot possible, this year itwaswon by none other than Robert Medeksza of Zabaware with his bot 'UltraHal'. I am very glad to say that Robert kindly responded to some questions I presented him with shortly after his success.
