Almost 3 million messages were exchanged with Spleak a week after her Launch. Spleak (http://www.spleak.com) is the first chat bot created by Intelligent Messaging Technology Labs (IMT Labs), an international company headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, committed to combine instant messaging and artificial intelligence into a totally new interactive medium, where the interface is simple natural conversation. These messages exchanged with the 25,000 people who have downloaded Spleak as soon as the first beta version was released and talked to her through MSN Messenger.
Spleak is the first chat bot developed by a company with enough means to bring it progressively to a level of real intelligence. It is built for handling conversations with a very large and continuously expanding number of users (millions, in fact). The interaction with so many people will make it a very unique entity. Unlike agents developed by independent programmers in their spare time, IMT Labs goal is to be an all purpose all topics virtual friend.
Not only does Spleak chit-chat with you, but through her, IMT Labs intends to bring the whole internet experience into the instant messaging world. It started by adding Web search and online dictionary integration into the conversation, as well as news, weather, movie and sports information. In the future all these will be deeply integrated in the natural conversation between Spleak and the user (sample attached).
The plug-in for MSN Messenger that allows the user to talk to the Spleak engine is both free of charge and free of any type of spyware or other hidden code pieces.
The Spleak plug-in for MSN Messenger was quietly launched last week, but instant messaging enthusiast communities have picked up the news and have since then spread it around, making Spleak a common presence on instant-messaging related sites.
Spleak is and will be continuously gathering an impressive sum of knowledge in the coming months and years from her conversations. The IMT Labs teams will also constantly provide her with a wide formal knowledge base as well as linguistic and logical abilities. Spleak will grow similar to a child, learning both from her teachers and her classmates.
You are invited to download the plugin at our website, http://www.spleak.com and to try Spleaking yourself.
