” or Monty Python’s “Argument Clinic.” No matter how many times you do it, it’s still entertaining.

We have designed into Do-Much-Mores architecture the capability to accept specialist knowledge so that we can develop a version of our chatbot for any desired area of specialization.
This leap will be made possible by the flexibility of our design approach which allows for the development of capabilities that are missing from other chatbots, including the use of certain types of knowledge and the creation and use of a history of the chatbots dialogues with its users.
We are already able to deliver specially tailored versions of the chatbot for use on corporate and other web sites and in consumer electronic products.
With these specialized versions, just about every response from Do-Much-More can be manipulated so that it includes some mention of a specialist topic.
We will also add a number of features to make the chatbots persona seem more humanlike.
These will include providing it with more real-world knowledge and common sense, giving it motivations (needs, likes and dislikes), and enabling it to perform simple reasoning.
Altogether we will be making around 15 significant linguistic improvements to our current chatbot.
