Web-based English-Sinhala translator in action

Chatbots are becoming popular as a means for interactive communication between human and machines. Due to their interactivity, chatbots are much better than standard machine translation systems, which may provide unrealistic solutions when the system cannot perform without user intervention.

 Chatbots are becoming popular as a means for interactive communication between human and machines. Due to their interactivity, chatbots are much better than standard machine translation systems, which may provide unrealistic solutions when the system cannot perform without user intervention. This paper reports on the design and implementation of the Sinhala Chatbot System that can communicate between computer and user, through Sinhala language. This is the first ever Sinhala Chatbot. The current chatbot has been designed to work on Linux and Windows Operating systems. As such the current chatbot can be queried on operating system related concepts such as date, time, and also identify individuals and greet accordingly. This system has been developed as an application of a Sinhala parser that comes under a major component of our project in English to Sinhala machine translation system. Nevertheless, our chatbot is more than a mere application of the said Sinhala paper, but an extension to capture verbal syntax and semantics of Sinhala language into a machine translation. The entire system has been developed using JAVA and SWI-PROLOG that runs on both Linux and Windows. The current chatbot can be used as ‘shell’ for developing chatbots for any domain.
