George in action!


George the Dev is a chat bot for the Stack Exchange network of chat sites.

He currently hangs out in the Sandbox and is capable of understanding a few commands and those commands resemble a natural form of English. Here are some examples:

Me: @GeorgetheDev what time is it?
George: @Nathan The current time is Thu, 03 Sep 2015 05:22:02 GMT.
Me: @GeorgetheDev what is tritium?
George: @Nathan [link to "Tritium" article on Wikipedia]
Me: @GeorgetheDev what is (12 + 2) * 3?
George: @Nathan 42

He can also lookup manpages, perform ping and dig lookups, etc.


George is released under the MIT License.


The source code for George is available here on GitHub.

The bot is written in Go and uses go-sechat.

    @Fosco: Well... me too. I will do my best to make this happen - currently some proprietary API keys are what's holding up the project from going open source. Commented Jun 8, 2011 at 18:47
