A couple general ideas, however: You can check against the context responded flag at the end of the bot logic to see if the bot sent anything back to the user during the turn. If all else fails, you should send a default response instead of doing nothing and leaving the user wondering what is going on.

Looking for a suggested base for bot Author: The bot chooses a random word from your input and generates a response by choosing another random word that has been seen to be a successor to its held word. It reaches that conclusion by stopping at a word that was prior to a punctuation mark in the training text.
It then returns to input mode again to let you respond, and so on. This is a great challenge for any budding Pythonists, and I just wish I could open the challenge to a wider audience than the small number of visitors I get to this blog. To code a bot that is always guaranteed to be grammatical must surely be closer to several hundred lines, I simplified hugely by just trying to think of the simplest rule to give the computer a mere stab at having something to say.
Its responses are rather impressionistic to say the least! Also you have to put what you say in single quotes. I would suggest looking at Bayesian probabilities. Then just monitor the chat room for a period of time to create your probability tree.
I'm not sure this is what you're looking for, but there's an old program called ELIZA which could hold a conversation by taking what you said and spitting it back at you after performing some simple textual transformations.
If I remember correctly, many people were convinced that they were "talking" to a real person and had long elaborate conversations with it.
If you're just dabbling, I believe Pidgin allows you to script chat style behavior. Part of the framework probably tacks the state of who sent the message when, and you'd want to keep a log of your bot's internal state for each of the last N messages.
Future state decisions could be hardcoded based on inspection of previous states and the content of the most recent few messages. Or you could do something like the Markov chains discussed and use it both for parsing and generating.
If you do not require a learning bot, using AIML http: There are parsers made in several different languages to choose from, and as far as I can tell the code seems to be open source in most cases.
There are bots with state, I worked on one myself. It was a parsing bot against a knowledge base using neural network. Rickenbach Oct 20 '08 at 9: Before we can actually use this remotely deployed bot we need to get some valid credentials by registering it with the Microsoft Bot Framework.
Head over to https: You should now be back in your dev portal with your new bot listed and showing as already being connected to Skype! When you send your first message it may take a few seconds to get a response, but subsequent ones should be quicker.
Where do we go from here? You could connect your bot to other services if you have the prerequisites for that service, such as Facebook Messenger, SMS Twilio or Slack. You could start to develop cleverness around parsing the content of the message, and responding appropriately. Thanks for your post. I am facing a problem when I put my messaging endpoint https: Any help will be welcome:: We are getting delay while getting our responses.
Sometimes, it happens for the first time sometime it happens randomly. Is this happening from Azure since we have deployed the bot to azure? Is there any solution to this delaying response issue? Secondly, try to host your bot in East US I think , since this is currently the only location the botframework is hosted — saving on network latency.
