I really would recommend anyone enter your bot. You get so many good conversations that it helps you learn. There is no fee, no pressure, just fun, and you can win lots of cash.

LAST DAY TO ENTER THE CBC...Please enter, there aren't many bots and there is a good chance to win. There is cash this year. There are very few Forge bots!

3) Izar - 72
4) Vira - 60

Congratulations Patti! (..and the other winners too, obviously...)

Just got this email. So very sad

I have decided after 12 years to end the CBC. I think the contest has become a bit stale and needs a new life and a new direction. I'm hoping another contest will appear and perhaps take it's place. I do think it's been a good alternative to the Loebner Contest allowing virtually anyone to enter with minimal entry restrictions.
If any individual or group has an interest in starting a new contest Peter Cole, the sponsor of the 2011 and 2012 CBC, maybe interested in being the sponsor.

Thanks for all the support over the years.

Calling all botmasters!

Sadly, the Chatterbox Challenge is no longer with us and the conditions for entering the Loebner Prize are prohibitive to most botmasters (especially to those outside the USA). This has left no way for most people with a chatbot to compare its performance against others.

To remedy this, I would like to announce the first in a series of Chatbot Battles, in which each entrant goes head to head with opponents in a league table/knockout format similar to the soccer World Cup. The main difference between this and other contests held in the past is that each entrant is judged on both question and answering abilities and also on how well they can carry out a normal conversation. Also, the bots do not have to pretend they are human to score extra marks. All chatbots are welcome to enter, whether they be web-based, downloadable, chatroom based or even Android apps.

Unfortunately, I do not have a sponsor and so the contest is currently just for bragging rights and kudos, although I may give some small prizes like T-shirts, mousemats and mugs away to the winners. If you would like to sponsor the competition, please contact me.

The closing date for entries is 1st June 2012 and the battles will start shortly afterwards.

Don't forget to enter the Chatbot Battles at

It's FREE, easy to enter and contests get you lots of conversations with your bot. Great way to learn!

Thanks Patti,

Just to let everyone know that Decadent Vapours (the sponsor of the CBC) have kindly donated $100 in prize money with a view to sponsoring it fully next year, if it is a success. I have also received

NEW 5 years ago #3927

Don't forget it's the last day to enter today. We have 35 bots so far taking part but there's still room for more if you wish to make a last minute entry. Remember, each botmaster can enter up to 3 bots.
