I´m really a noob and just curious. I’m a 40 year old librarian from Sweden who used to program simpler things in my youth like some games in pascal and some textadventures. I have always wanted to try some simpler AI stuff and I was thinking that the world needs a “Robot Tommy” aka Chat bot Tommy.
It would be fun to make something that I actually could use in my work. For example it would be nice if Robot Tommy could give customers the answer to opening hours, it would be really helpful if he could interact with the library’s digital calendar.
Im more of a creative kind of librarian so Robot Tommy would have to be able to give people tips on new books and perhaps articles. Also have the answer to if superman could defeat the incredible hulk.
And make jokes
So. I´m totally new on this. Where would I even begin creating such a monster? It would have to be free and open sorce in case I would want to use it for work.
