I want to create a custom chat bot for use with smart home software, but not from scratch. What’s the best method to do this?


I want to create a custom chat bot for use with smart home software, but not from scratch. What’s the best method to do this?

In lieu of answering this question here, I have made a new Meta-Guide.com webpage on “Dialog Systems in Smart Home Automation & Domotics (Domestic Robotics)” [1].  This webpage was created by extracting all relevant references from my four years of tweets as well as from my Meta Guide website itself.

Although not open source, I imagine that the new Microsoft HomeOS [2] could be used with the Kinect for Windows [3], which has speech capabilities.  (See also Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio microsoft.com/robotics ..)

I can add that Steve Prior [4] is a good person to ask about dialog systems in smart homes in general, and about his “Geekster Smarthome” [5] in particular.
