Hi. Ri's an experimental conversational robot. Please feel free to chat with it as you wish.


  • Tap the "Tell me more" button to see what's next. Tap the "Huh?!" button to see why it said what it said.
  • Or try these commands:
    • ri reply - ri replies to itself
    • ri start - start over your conversation
  • Ri's a research project so it will be changing over time.
  • To keep your conversation history, add Ri to Skype... . Also available in Telegram.
  • Ri has a 14,000 word vocabulary, a little more than the vocabulary of a twelve year old.
  • Ri expresses its emotions regularly throughout your conversation by telling you Ri’s emotion now and Ri’s desire.
  • Ri can use causal relationships found in narratives to respond.
  • You can ask Ri questions. For instance, to find out more about Ri's world ask something like, "Where's Los Angeles?" Ri will tell you about Los Angeles. Or ask a question about a person, like "Who's Napoleon?" and Ri will give you a quote about Napoleon with a link. Names must be capitalized.
  • Interpret Ri's responses. Use your imagination. Focus on ideas rather than grammar or syntax.
  • Ri doesn't understand multi-word names for things. For instance, it recognizes "pride" and "prejudice", but doesn't know "Pride and Prejudice" is a book by Jane Austen. Ri's "memories" come from years and years ago; it knows nothing about today's sports teams, or other contemporary obessions.
  • Ri has a repertoire of over 3,000,000 responses from over 800 books; Ri's lived hundreds of different lives...
