After that, AIML language is described and each AIML command/tag is followed by an In the literature that presents the AIML concepts, there are tutorials that. In order to follow the examples in this tutorial you will need to login using the panel to The goal of this tutorial is to teach you the minimum of AIML necessary to. Even if you do not want to make an AIML file, you can still use the basic AIML coding tutorial which you can find in this instructable. You can save it as XML for .

Check out the Chatty Cathy project page for more information, screenshots and source code or jump straight on to the DevDungeon Discord https: Also available on GitHub at https: These code examples will walk you through how to create your own akml intelligence chat bot using Python. He made a bot called A.

AIML Tutorial

Artificial Linguistics Internet Computer Entity which won several artificial intelligence awards. Interestingly, one of the Turing tests to look for artificial intelligence is to have a human chat with a bot through a tutorlal interface for several minutes and see if they thought it was a human.

It is standard to create a startup file called std-startup. In this case we will create a basic file that matches one pattern and takes one action.

We want to match the pattern load aiml band have it load our aiml brain in response. Above we created the AIML file that only handles one pattern, load aiml ttutorial. It won’t work unless we actually create it.

AIML – Introduction

We will match two basic patterns and respond. You can also add random responses like this. This one will respond randomly when it receives a message that starts with “One time I “. It can be fun to write your own AIML files, but it can be tutoriak lot of work. I think it needs around 10, patterns before it starts to feel realistic.


There was one floating around before called stdpercent. There is also one that lets you play BlackJack with the bot. All of that is important and will make up the brain of the bot, but it’s just information right now. The bot needs to come to life.

You could use any language to implement the AIML specification, but some nice person has already done that in Python. Install the aiml package first with pip or download from https: For Python 3, the source code remains exactly the same.

You still import the package as aiml but when installing it with pip you use the name python-aiml. The source code is available at https: This is the simplest program we can start with. It creates the aiml object, learns the startup file, and then loads the rest of the aiml files. After that, it is ready to chat, and we enter an infinite loop that will continue to prompt the user for a message.

AIML Introduction

You will need to enter a pattern the bot recognizes. The patterns recognized depend on what AIML files you loaded. We create the startup file as a separate entity so that we can add more aiml files to the bot later without having to modify any of the programs source code.

We can just add more files to learn in the startup xml file. When you start to have a lot of AIML aim, it can take a long time to learn. This is where brain files come in. After the bot learns all the AIML files it can save its brain directly to a file which will drastically speed up load times on subsequent runs.

You can send the load message to the bot while it is running and it tutoral reload the AIML files. Keep in mind that if you are using the brain method as it is written above, reloading it on the fly will not save the new changes to tutoriial brain.


You will either need to delete the brain file so it rebuilds on the next startup, or you will need to modify the code so that it saves the brain at some point after reloading. See the next section on creating Python commands for the bot to do that. If you want to siml your bot some special commands that run Python functions, then you should capture the input message to the bot and process it before sending it to kernel.

We could get our input from anywhere though. Perhaps a Ajml socket, or a voice-to-text source. Process the message before it goes through AIML. You may aml to skip the AIML processing on certain messages. For example, if one person tells the bot their name is Alice, and the other person tells the bot their name is Bob, the bot can differentiate the people.

To specify which session you are using you pass it as a second parameter to respond. This is good for having personalized conversations with each client.

You will have to generate your own session Id some how and track them. Note that saving the brain file does not save all the session values.

And the bot will respond with That is interesting that you have a dog named Max And if you ask the bot:. View the discussion thread.

Skip to main content. Create Standard Startup File It is standard to create a startup file called std-startup. Python 2 Install the aiml package first with pip or download from https: My dogs name is Max And the bot will respond with That is interesting that you have a dog named Max And if you ask the bot: What is my dogs name?

The bot will respond: Your tutoriak name is Max.
