IRC Bot Announces Headlines

IRC Chat Bot

There’s now an IRC bot on called ai-depot. By default, it will announce the latest news in the #ai channel as it becomes available in the RSS feed. You can also query the news that was published recently if you missed it; simply type ai-depot: LATEST and the bot will give you the last two headlines.

The code is based on Supybot, written in Python. The ai-depot bot uses mostly the default RSS plugin, but with a few bug fixes and enhancements over the latest release on Sourceforge (0.83).

Remember, you can swing by on the #ai channel of freenode at any time for idle chat on artificial intelligence and life in general! Don’t say hi to the bot, as he won’t understand much yet though…
