Why You Don't Need Proprietary Bot Software

Windows 0.3

In the year 2001, there is no HAL 9000. Instead, there are a growing number of software packages that attempt to do some part of what Arthur Clarke / Stanley Kubrick envisioned in the book and film of the same name, most of which go by the label "chatter bot", "virtual representative", "virtual person", "smart bot", or some similar variant. Here I'll be calling them all "bot software", disregarding the fact that "bot" usually applies to a broader range of software than just conversational programs.
