instantreality 1.0

fully implemented
Structure type:


This node is used to create an Eliza-style communication. You can send clear-text questions to the ask inslot and get a clear-text answer from the answer outslot. This is especially useful for creating avatars that can communicate with the user of the X3D world. To specify the topics the Brain node is able to talk about, you have to specify the URL of an AIML file. Internally, the Brain node depends on the Alice library (see for more information).

SFString ask SFString inputOnly Send clear-text questions to this inslot. The Brain node answers the questions via the answer outslot.
SFString answer SFString outputOnly Receive the clear-text answers to the questions sent to the ask inslot from this outslot.
SFBool enabled SFBool inputOutput TRUE Enables or disables the node. A node that is disabled does not react to incoming events and does not send events.
MFString logFeature MFString inputOutput state, child, parent, route, eventIn, eventOut controls the logging of changes, state: log state changes (e.g. live), child: log child add/remove, parent: log parent add/remove, route: log route add/remove; eventIn: log receiving of events, eventOut: log sending of events: guiView, runtime system should create node-view, guiEdit: runtime system should create node-editeverything: log everything
