Interactive bot users


I am just playing with some ideas. Wondering if anyone has something in place that conditionally operates with the api and the discourse db or a third party database?

This has got something with nokogiri written all over it almost like the onebox if it does third party “fetching”.

Artificial intelligence users would be users that can both start new topics (i.e. this day in history for my liberal category, today’s birthdays) and also respond to “@ai_user” notifications with some sort of arbitrary third party data lookup that pertains to your specific community.

example post with response:

@ai_user Tell me who is Donald Trump?”

@ai_user would then respond with hard data on Donald Trump and maybe a picture to keep the discussion going.

It would be like an online “Siri” but with more specific functionality.


Like “trivia bots” on IRC networks? :neutral_face:

You probably want something like this:
