Probably it’s a bit late for SOT to review about SimSimi, because this web application is so popular recently among teenagers, especially single, lonely, and need friends.. Hehehe..
How come? It because SimSimi is a chat program by using AI (Artificial Intelligence) which has been pioneered since 2002 by ISMaker. SimSimi, derived from Korea language, simsim which means “bored”. Not just website, Simsimi application can be accessed in Android and iOS. This program is interesting because it can be taught to answer conversation and use different language, the program will respond all your typed sentences, sometimes innocence, sometimes inconsequent, but it will make us smile.
For you who have never met Simi, feel free to visit it in:
Welcome screen in Simsimi website is quite simple, you can download Simsimi application to be used in Android or iOS device by pressing button provided. If you entered directly to the website, you have to ‘agree’ statement that you have been 17 years old or above, and able to responsible for your action. This disclaimer is put because sometimes Simsimi burst inappropriate words when chatting since someone taught it to do it..
Simi’s Interface is quite simple, you can write sentences you wanted to say in left below column, just like common chatting.
The funny thing from SimSimi is, it sometimes blows unpredictable answer for your questions.
Simsimi has learning feature. You’d just have to click on “Teach” button on upper right to give ‘lesson’ to Simi about how it should answer when there’s certain question.
Is that so simple to teach Simi? Unfortunately not! You just have to ‘Teach’ it many times, then Simi would have just been able to answer the question you state, exactly like answer you wanted. But this is the interesting point and make us get addicted chatting with this A.I robot!
