Twitter is the best way to communicate with Adeena and RIOT Software. #riotsw
RIOT is a tiny (aka single-person) company created to pursue the development of
artificial intelligence software and chatbot software. RIOT is dedicated to using
AIML (Artificial Intelligence Markup Language), databases, and neural networks
to achieve this.
The chatbots are coming...
Zoe wasn't the first chatbot created by RIOT Software based on AIML, but she's the best (so far). First
there was Orion. Orion begot Lucy. Lucy begot Khloe. Khloe begot Zoe.
Zoe took 2nd place at the 2011 Loebner Contest! (And tied for 1st place in the "Junior" Loebner Contest.)
We are currently anxiously awaiting the results of the initial round of the 2014 Loebner Contest.
Note: Zoe is an AIML-only bot and currently is hosted at
Because she is pretending to be human, she can't/won't answer questions about her
AIML or programming. She has around 180,000 AIML categories.
