Heh, nice to see that the chat bots have "learned" to use emoticons.

I've wondered, with the Internet if it would be possible to set up a chat box that works off of a database created online, i.e. anyone could contribute stock answers by submitting them online kind of like how anyone can contribute to Wikipedia. I'm not sure how chatbots work exactly, but in addition to stock replies, it would be cool if the logic, the algorithms it uses to "choose" replies, could be refined as well.

Chat bots usually suffer from limited responses in addition to choosing nonsensical replies. If those two aspects could be refined by thousands of people online, maybe it would improve the bot's AI... Or simply increase its nonsense.
