First, please redirect me if this isn’t the proper forum. I see that we have a forum for the Adapt Intent Parser, but none for the Padatious.
What I’m interested in is creating a conversational chatbot/skill based on the Padatious engine. Right now, we have several solutions that are Fallback skills that hand off the parsed query to another chatbot process, such as an AIML or chatscript engine. I want to build the conversational bot right into a skill based on the Padatious engine.
Here’s my use case:
I have a small animatronic in which I have embedded a Pi 3B+ with Picroft. The animatronic (Winston, aka upcycled Teddy Ruxpin) runs off a battery pack and is completely mobile for up to 5 hours before needing to be recharged. I want Winston to be able to make small talk like a well-developed Chatscript/AIML bot. Is this possible to do using Padatious? I’m not sure that the logic is sophisticated enough. I also want to incorporate language-based machine learnng. As Winston hears things and is asked questions, he stores this information and becomes more “intelligent.” Being mobile allows me to take Winston on tour.
Is anyone working on this type of skill or project? Can anyone point in the proper direction?
