This is an update to an old post mentioned below:
I added some default functionality to the Unix terminal on the index page of this website. Now when you type a command that it doesn’t understand an ‘Elizabot’ (GitHub) will respond questioningly. ‘Eliza’ was the name of one of the first natural language processing scripts and you can read more about it here.
Ideas for improvement
- Track returning users using cookies or login/logout
- Add simple game functions. I will probably add simple card and gambling games (blackjack, poker, roulette). High scores would be a cool addition too and would let me practice database management. Would be even cooler if it synced up with cryptocurrency for ‘real’ gambling.
- Text adventure like the emacs game
- Connect with other people. Imagine if other people had this sort of robot on their website and they could talk to each other. It would also be neat to randomly connect to real people… but we all know what kind of problems anonymity can bring.
