EcoChatBot is an AI experiment. EcoChatBot wants to help you turn green. EcoChatBot is an artificial intelligence that will chat with you See the little blue box in the corner? Just pop the talk open and chat about ecology and the environment.
I’ve been thinking a great deal about fostering sustainability communication via diffusion theory ala Malcolm Gladwell. Essentially diffusion theory maintains that conversation + media creates changes in our appropriation of experience. So I figure if I can’t always be around to chat with people about the environment – or you can’t find someone handy to talk to about some ideas you might have about going green. Why not talk to a chat bot? EcoBot should learn from the talking and make more environmentally interesting conversation as it grows in experience.
