Welcome to the first ever Chatbot Battles!
Ladies and gentlemen, grab your ringside seats and welcome to the first ever series of Chatbot Battles. Let's get ready to rumble!
Chatbot owners from all over the world enter their creations in a knockout league to determine the winner. Each competitor must play each other in a league with the top entrants battling out in a one-on-one dual. Last bot standing wins!
Each match sees both chatbots either being asked the same 5 questions or having a free flowing conversation for 5 minutes. The winner is decided from their responses.
Deadline to enter your chatbot: 1 June 2012
League stage from: 11 June 2012 to: 7 July 2012
Knockout stages start from: 9 July 2012 to: 20 July 2012
Final result should be announced in July 2012
Below is the list of chatbots that have entered the Chatbot Battles for 2012
All bots are welcome to enter and test themselves against others, whether they be web based, downloadble, chatroom bots or even Android apps, sorry but we are unable to test iPhone apps - unless you want to send an iPhone along with your entry :-)
