We also need to allow for Indiegogo’s commission (4% if we reach our target) and for the cost to us of credit card and Pay Pal pledges (averaging 4%).
Because of the overlapping of these stages we expect to be able to complete all the development and launch tasks in 9 months, and to deliver the chatbots offered in our perks during April 2016.
The total cost of the four stages is estimated at $128,000 which, together with an estimated $14,000 for our initial corporate, legal and accountancy requirements, makes our Indiegogo target after deductions $142,000.
Prelude is the most fantastic, beautiful, easy-to-use and self-learning chatbot. Talk to her about whatever comes to your mind and watch her become an intimate friend...
She is lightning fast, smart, learns on the fly (in any language! Prelude is based on an award winning self learning chatbot program.
Is this starting to sound uncomfortably like entrapment? John Carr, a UK government adviser on child protection, told the BBC that overburdened police could be aided by the technology, but the software could well cross the line and entice people to do things they otherwise might not: The BBC reports that Negobot has been field-tested on Google chat and could be translated into other languages.
Its researchers admit that Negobot has limitations – it doesn’t, for example, understand irony. Engage in entertaining conversations and witness your eery feeling grow as your computer seems to have come to life!In fact Prelude is so human like that you might bump into her avatars in Second Life and not even know.If the subject is sick of the conversation and uses less polite language to try to leave, the bot acts like a victim – a youngster nobody pays attention to and who just wants affection from somebody.From there, if the subject has stopped talking to the bot, the bot tries to exchange sex for affection.These include creating a database for the chatbot’s knowledge about a user, devising a system for taking advantage of the information in that database by integrating it in conversations, and developing a dialogue history to remember past user input and employ that knowledge in the chatbot’s conversations. Stage 2 We will add a number of features to make the chatbot’s persona seem more humanlike.
