Hi everyone,

I was browsing another ESL forum yesterday and read a topic about a robot you can talk to on MSN (in English). Have you heard of it? It's name is Spleak. If you want to try it out, just add spleak@hotmail.com to your contacts. You'll be surprised. Start the conversation by saying 'hi' and if it doesn't answer add 'are you there?' or something like that Laughing

What do you guys think of that? Shocked

Another robot able to answer all the possible questions you may have: encarta@conversagent.com Ask it something like: what's the flag of Turkey? It will show it to you Shocked

I've chatted with some robots like Spleak already. and I think it is just OK to ask them some questions and get the replies, some of which are funny or knowledgeable. But they will not talk actively, just waiting for your words, and being not curious about you.They should be improved,I think.
