Comment: Hmm, an NLP improvement. (Score 1) 577

For a Natural Language Processing project, I wrote a perl script that would take all of your Gaim logs, build a database of things you are most likely to say, in the style you are most likely to say it. Then, as you typed, it non-obtrusively suggested the rest of the word or next word that you were currently typing. You could hit a key and it would fill it in for you

If IM bots get sophisticated enough, they could start doing something like this. Not for typing something out, but for generating messages from a person that sound a lot like them. Perhaps copying a message of sending a link they had sent earlier, just changing the link location. Then if the person replied, they could use information from the logs on how to best respond like the person.

Hmm, perhaps I shouldn't be giving anyone more ideas...
