Technical Support Cyborgs

    Here is my design to build a cyborg.

    You just have a search engine, and as the user types in queries to the
    cyborg, the program searches for the best possible responses. Then a
    support agent chooses a question. Once the question is chosen the
    program plays like 20 questions, and the technical support agent can
    browse through those questions or move backwards and forwards in the
    nest of 20 questions to pick other answers with the search engine.

    The technical support agents at AOL use software like this, and the
    people on the phone do it to to make sure they keep clients and get
    buisness. But they are paying people in india 10 cents an hour to use
    the software to do this, when they can barely speak english.

    My idea it to create an open source version of this software, and get
    Americans using it to talk to each other to answer questions about
    Linux, or get life coaching and counseling. It is simple to write the
    code, but we need people to program the responses!

    And it isn't that hard to link people up to webpages for serious
    inquiries.

    Do I need to be a Native American Speaker,
    to contribute to this project? ;-)

    don't you see, WE ARE THE BORG, resistance is futile!
    the fact that you can think about this doesn't mean you are free.

    knowing or unknowing, we all follow the same rules, which were imprinted
    upon us a long time ago, most of them within our system, some in our
    culture and some by our little social network we operate within.

    you want examples? what do you do when you get an e-mail, do you read
    it? and what about your voice mails? what about e-mails from your boss,
    and what about e-mails from viagra offerings or Nigeria lottery? you
    see, we all have our little set of rules of engagement.

    you are the borg

    What we need is someone who can understand all of the open source
    spaghetti out there. We could build this program to work along side of
    "Alice", so that all of the multiple choice options the Cyborg created
    would seem human-realistic. But whoever programmed Alice wrote it in
    an attempt to release the source code so no one could ever understand
    how it worked. Just to mock reverse engineers.
