A.L.I.C.E. Artificial Intelligence … has come to virtual worlds. My first introduction to this phenomenon was when my friend Lion Ewry introduced me to “Mr. Ed” a beautiful black and white pinto horse who will follow you around and chat with you on just about any subject. The more you talk the larger “Mr. Ed’s” vocabulary grows. I was totally impressed!!!
This wonderful experience felt magical, my goodness we’re communicating with a horse! Oh such bizzare fun! DJTommy Seetan and Lion Ewry worked together to make this talking horse a virtual reality. And if you just feel plain silly talking to a horse, go to Intoxicated region @ Island Oasis, at the Games Area there you can sit and chat with ‘Nadia’ the Gypsy… ‘Nadia’ she will make you laugh and the time will fly by as the two of you get to know each other. Daisy Coronet, Mrs. Kat Ewry, Lion Ewry and DJTommy Seetan and Sunbeam spent a lovely time playing games and chatting with Artificial Intelligence… what’s next.. holograms??? dancing with your avatar buddies from around the world in your very own rl livingroom. IMAGINE.
It’s been a very busy couple weeks for me…. in my VW grids. Sunbeam enjoyed some great Disco music and shared some laughs with Max Kling DJ @ Olantic… it brought back memories of the days when Dude and I taught Disco lessons around the Southern California area. Dude was the DJ (killer sexy voice) and myself and our dear friends at the time (so to protect their privacy lets just call them the Furries, and myself made up our traveling troupe. We called ourselves “The Sunset Dancers” ♫♫♪ “Those were the days my friend I’d thought they never end ♫♪♫” Freak OUT! Funky Town!
Sunbeam helped set up the venue for my bffz (best friends forever)Lion Ewry and Katarina Svarovski and was Maid of Honor at the wedding and Wedding Co-ordinator. We had a nice rehersal and all went very well. It was the most beautiuful wedding I’ve ever been to in a VW (and let me tell you I have been to many over the last 8 years) and the most special thing happened. Lion asked Kat to marry him in rl too. Yeah! so romantic. They met in InWorst virtual grid and were introduced by me, myself and alt (Evvie Silverweb) and I feel like a match.maker he he. The are two of the nicest, most generous, most helpful, most compassionate avi’s I’ve ever met. I made a smilebox slideshow of some wedding snaps I was able to get:
The Ewry Wedding, January 27th, 2013
On the WHAT grid: don’t you just love that name. Remember the old “who’s on first routine” done by Abbot and Costello? Sunbeam helped fill up the contest pods, and get avi’s entered. The beginnings of the contest builds is already turning Marvin Park into a magically wonderful, colorful place full of hearts, and love. We have such awesome builders entered: AAcme Fall, jillytopaz wasp, guy quicksand, Fee Edenbaum, Anan Eebus, Shadow Ilo and mark forster.
I set up a sim wide menu teleport system for the RP Western Town, Dry Gulch IO on Lady K & Lions Horse World region. I visited the new Welcome center at Island Oasis and spent some quality time with my friend Annallisia (she lives in Germany but is actually from the United States). I down sized to one shop only in 3rg and helped Dude to take down his AAcme shop and box up his things. He rarely rarely ever joins me in Virtual Worlds anymore, preferring to spend his time other ways. Anyway I will close this post with just a bunch of random GridHopping pictures I captured while flittering about the magical metaverse. Hope you enjoy them!
Step in Sunshine!
Ps. I haven’t quite mastered inserting pictures they seem to stick whenever they want to not where I told them to.

Wow…amazing! Thanks for the info – it’s cool to see the virtual ‘reality’ starting to come into its own. And thanks for the pics – I wasn’t able to get to Lion and Kat’s wedding and it was so wonderful to see a little of the joining of two wonderful, special people. And in RL too?? *cries a little* Beautiful!!!
Thanks Rhiannon… glad you enjoyed the images… yes itsn’t that wonderful perhaps a rl wedding in the sun, summertime! HUGS
No offense, but ALICE is just a chat response program. it is in no way Artificial Intelligence. There are some good examples or real AI out there, though.
Thanks Jazzi for the clarification …dubbed ‘chat response’ or AI its all kind of pretend anyway and fun to do in the virtual worlds
