In this infinite cosmos we have only one life each. A life in this infinite cosmos is just like a dust in the world. Born by chance and die in necessity. Feeble life and boundless world, two facts we face. Even if you spend your whole life solving them. You will get nothing. - 1998

Spleak- the Chatbot

"Have you been chatting with your computer lately? Wouldn't it be a major achievement to stop clicking our way through the Web or complex programs and get answers in the same way we talk to a colleague or a friend?"

This is a chatbot made with the technologies that I have studied. Just encountered and tried. Not to my supprise, the conversation is far from a real conversion with human. It provides more like a automatic answering telephone system, providing 1,2,3 multiple choices. I asked her to tell me about FPGA, and she gives me a list of available functions of the system. I have to choose through the menus. AI is really difficult. But this once again arouses my interest on AI. I will keep an eye on it.

Later I find more of chatbots here at robot invaders.

An Ajax (Asynchronous Javascript, DOM, XML, XSLT, XMLHttpRequest, XHTML, CSS) application eliminates the start-stop-start-stop nature of interaction on the Web by introducing an intermediary — an Ajax engine — between the user and the server. Adding a layer to the
application makes it more responsive. 所有的AJAX应用程序实现了一种“丰富的”UI——这是通过JavaScript操作HTML文档对象模型并且经由XMLHttpRequest实现的精确定位的数据检索来实现的。Highest-profile examples of Ajax application: All of the major products Google has introduced over the last year. 最重要的是,在用户通过地图导航或输入一个查找字符串的同时,这些事件不需要刷新页面。

Suicide of Ajax: When Achilles was killed, his armor was to be awarded to the next greatest Greek hero. Ajax thought it should go to him. Ajax went mad and tried to kill his comrades when the armor was awarded to Odysseus, instead. Athena intervened by making Ajax think cattle were his former allies. When Ajax realized he had slaughtered the herd, he committed suicide as his only honorable end. Ajax used the sword Hector had given him to kill himself.
