Let's Make Robots!


AIs and conversation

I've been thinking about AI resently, and I have been stumped on the idea of how to make a robot/computer talk like a human. Algorithms like those used by cleverbot don't have a real "memory", and I really want a robot that will also take into acount a set of variables called emotions. What ideas have you come across?

RaspberryPi - powered talking robot using Cleverbot (Idea)

'Nuff said.

Considering I can hook up both a mic and a speaker, this should be awesome!

Oh and a WiFi dongle/ethernet cable.

Sphinx 4

Ok so I downloaded Sphinx 4 and I am attempting to use it with Java. I am using Eclipse and this is all going down on a Windows XP. I have downloaded everything I need but I can't seem to figure out which JAR files I need in my library in Eclipse. I was wondering if someone who has some experience with Sphinx could offer some insight into how to get everything set up and running so I can start coding. I basically need to know which JAR files I need in my library. Thanks for the help!
