In Hook with Simsimi: The Cutest Chat-Bot Craze!

Wednesday, March 21, 2012
Question: Have you experienced going online with no friends available to chat with?

If you’ve answered YES, well, don’t ever again feel upset since today there is someone who will make the most of his time to chat with you. A friend that is so open-minded and responsive to all thoughts that you will share while making your heart laugh out loud. And it’s no other than SIMSIMI!

Simsimi, an app for Android and iPhone users, is taking the world by storm. Almost 2.7 million people are already using it, and that number is expected to grow over the next few months as word spreads about this innovative and entertaining app. Simsimi is a robot that has the ability to converse with users about a wide variety of topics. Simsimi also has the ability to learn from each and every user it converses with. It stores information from all of its conversations. So, when you text Simsimi about a certain topic, it is able to converse with you based on the information about that topic it’s acquired from conversations with other users.

Created in 2002 by the Korean tech company ISMaker, it uses artificial intelligence (or AI) to converse with human users.

A very detailed description of the Simsimi app is posted in
"SimSimi is a super advanced chatting robot that makes amusing conversation to engage with users," the blog reports. "Using this app is really simple. Just start a talk session at your touch screen then Simsimi will instantly greet you with a cheerful chat. Like those typical messaging apps, just send your message through a chatting box. Don't be surprised by Simsimi's fast response. It's a super-duper robot, you know!"

The blog goes on to describe how the artificial intelligence built into Simsimi also allows it to "learn" new information from users, which allows the app to be called as the "the cutest chatting robot ever," to evolve over time:

"Simsimi's vocabulary grows by your input. You can teach Simsimi your own words as other users teach their own ones too," the blog describes. "If Simsimi has no data to answer your former message, it will say 'I HAVE NO RESPONSE'. Then you might select the 'TEACH' tab and instruct it your own words in a paired form of 'request & response'. Once you teach Simsimi a pair of words, it will make a response with those words immediately (approx. 3 minutes)."

The Simsimi app for iPhone is often described as analogous to the conversation features that the Siri software on the iPhone 4s comes with, only unable to interact via a voice-recognition interface.

Though Simsimi can not do many of the things Siri is able to do--from fetching directions to setting an alarm--Jung-hoe Choi, the president of ISMaker, believes his Simsimi app is a superior conversationalist:

"Contrary to Simsimi, Siri of iPhone seems to show the answer made by programmers," the blog said.
