Chat bots look like they
have some intelligence
to them. But, in reality
Hmm ! Well I think I’m
their conversations
smarter than a human…
Have you met my cousin
are just a lot of clever Siri? If humans’ are so
smart why do they always
ask us computers daft
pre-programmed
questions?
Do I look like I know what

you ask Siri he’ll know…
anticipated inputs..
What is an
input?
Any information or data that's entered or sent
to the computer to be processed is
considered input.
Input or user input is most often sent to the
computer using an input device such as
a keyboard or mouse.
What is an output?
An output is anything where information comes out of the computer.
Printouts are called Hard copy soft copy is viewed on sc
Soft copy is a copy of text stored on the
computer and only accessible through the
computer. The most common method of
displaying a soft copy is through a
computer monitor or other display.
We are going to try make the user feel like they are having a conversational dialogue
“chat” with the computer. To do this we will need to get and store some personal
information.
We are going to need a container In the computers
memory to store the name of the users name. Lets
create a VARIABLE , this memory container needs a
sensible name.. How about
1
We don’t know the name
yet so leave this TEXT block
empty.
We’ll need a greeting!
Create a new variable
2
Add a suitable welcome like
this one.
TOP TIP
Put a space after the word
YOU

Simple Chat bot greeting.
Challenge
• Your program should now look like this. Did
you follow the instructions carefully to make
the first stage?
Lesson 2 In our next lesson we are going to make a routine
which will do some counting and will output a
message to the user which will make the chat bot
appear intelligent.
Task- Now create a procedure called chat
bot.
Place your code inside the procedure.
Remember to include the procedure call
command.

What should we do if the user behaves in an unexpected way.
Lets say the user does not enter a name that is sensible.
It would be difficult to write a set of instructions to spot that the
name is invalid.
The program would respond – Hello ksfuhdsakfjhaskfj nice to
meet you!
But what would happen if the user didn’t type anything but just
pressed enter.
Our program would say Hello nice to meet you!
Have a look at Elbot and try presing enter.

Extension
What did Elbot do?
Elbot gives a cheeky message, “oi type louder! I can’t hear you!”
Elbot must be using an array to store these messages
Messages must be called for using a random command like the
one we used in the blockly minecraft task.

APPEND
add (something) to the end of a something.
synonyms:
add, attach, affix, adjoin, include, put in/on;
With numbers append really means add
e.g. Variable_X = 1
Varibale_Y=2
Variable Z= 0
Variable Z = X APPEND Y = 3
Print Variable_Z
So variable Z == 3
