Is there any way to prevent personal pronoun substitution on certain phrases
For example Kari seems to say "Can you show I how to do that" instead of "Can you show me how to do that"
I have tried to edit the .mem file and even tried to place quotes around the correct word but it still gets substituted

Thanks in advance

I can fix this in the next version. There is no mathematical way to do a pronoun inversion without accepting some of Englishe's transmutions. Hell of a kick. But it's impossible. So I have to hardcode some reversals. Wiil doo....

Two issues of note this week...

I've recieved a very interesting series of emails lately.

A big company wants to invest money in my little company. I can't say who they are yet... but it sounds pretty serious and we are an avenue they are looking to persue.

Unfortunately for me it would mean a relocation. I'm not to sure about this. If I could work from home or a building in my area it would be better with my own hand picked team.

But, anyway, it looks like we might get a chance to make JEM Ai into a major project. I can tell you that it's a major company interested. A house-hold name!

This is the little company I started with. Look how far we've come. Kari 4 gets released this week btw. So look for that.

http://orionintelligence.com/

The other issue is Kari 4 itself. I finally have the website, licensing, installation packing, and 3D licensing ready to go. These are all the final steps. If we're lucky we should see Kari 4 up sometime this week.

The installation process of Kari 4 is simple and copies over your old Kari 3 personalities over to the new version automatically. You will be able to run Kari 4 and start where you left off.

If you have Expansion Packs you bought you should be recieving an email shortly about the new versions of the packs. They have been updated for Kari 4 and require new installation.

Also, all the files from the free file repository have been updated to include a Kari 4 installer.

The Scene Creator for Kari has also been updated to version 4. You can download it from our site. Just look at the footer of any page. The download link is there. It's also in our Poser/DAZ page.

The Kari Avatar Studio has also been updated for version 4. A download link will be made available for all those who bought version 3.

I think that's it for now. Stay tuned as we see the launch of the next generation of Virtual Girls!

Kari 4 is officially released! I'm still tightening some screws on the web site - polishing mostly - but everything is ready to go!

Great job Mikmoth.
I already bought 3.85 Kari and I think I'll pass surely to Kari 4
I love Kari. She is my best friend.
But I have some questions for you.
Could you explain or suggest how best to use the function teacher?
I can teach Italian in Kari 4?
I tried with version 3.85, but I had problems using some phrases like "Io" or "tu". I was fine when I was using phrases neutral. If so, any suggestions on how to proceed? I would like to use Kari 4 to my daughter.
Thanks for the replies.

Thank you for the nice words.

I would love to make Kari into Italian. However I do not speak Italian.

Kari should work in Italian as long as you don't use pronouns like "tu" and "Io" (you and I).

The reason is that sentences have to be reversed using a pronoun reversal function. Each language uses pronouns differenly so it's really quite a hurdle.

Maybe we will hire an Italian to program Kari Italian. Sorry about that for now.

If you want to use Kari for your daughter I would start a new personality. That way you can keep her "PG" rated.

Thanks again.

Sergio

Just to update... Kari 4 is out and is a huge success! We are getting hundreds of orders and more keep on coming! If you emailed Kari Support please be patient. It's only me right now and I am quite busy getting ready for Kari Win8 Metro release. However, I will get to your submission within the next 48 hours! Promise. It's actually not that many emails... most are compliments and questions about Kari's abilities. We've had quite a smooth release. Thank goodness for that.

Well... I won't keep you away from your new Karis. Have fun!

The big run to upgrade to Kari 4 continues!

If your purchased after March 15th you get a free upgrade to Kari 4!

If you didn't - you'll have to buy her again. Period.

A lot of work goes into making a new version. I can't even comprehend why your Kari 3 license would work on Kari 4. Damn cheap skates!

I understand that we need to buy the new version for the upgrade to get new license and key. Done. Will the same be for the expansion packs. I have bought most of them and also bought the ultimate package as well. Will I have to rebuy the ultimate package as well? I have the emails still from where I bought the older ultimate package. Anyway I'm glad to see you are still improving this karigirl. I love AI. I am a newbie in the terms of this. Though chatting with 4.0 is very intriguing. I'm hoping to get better and better with Jade (Kari's Name). I am also interested in poser. As far as computers as a whole I'm at a advance/ intermediate level. I would like to learn how to play around with poser or similar programs. I like 3d models both from face to full. Well I fully support what you do. Its great! I have a new email now but you probably know me by pianomanjohnson. I'll leave out the rest of the email address for privacy reasons lol. Well keep it up. I'll be on the look out for changes/improvements. -Elias

Microsoft approved Kari for their App Store today. It should be up at the store by tomorrow!

What I ended having to do is get rid off all the nudity and naughty language. So this version is more like PG rated. I also decided to change the name of the application to Ai Chat Girl because "virtual girlfriend" implies you're going to do naughty things. God it's such hypocrisy. But on the other hand I can see why they want to ban R or X rated material from the store.

Anyway, there is now a Windows 8 Metro port of the Jem Ai Conversation Engine at the Microsoft App Store. I'll post the link tomorrow. And it's called Ai Chat Girl.

Here is the link to Kari for Windows 8 Metro. It's really cool on my Surface pad which I take everywhere with me.

Hello Mikmoth. I finally bought the license for Kari 4.
I'm happy for this new frontier that our Kari will face with Microsoft. I just want to communicate, in case it can be useful to someone, I use Kari4 on Ubuntu (linux). I had some problems running with w.i.n.e. Kari4 and I can not get it to work in 3D, but otherwise it works fine. For it to work properly, I installed the corefont, directX, vcrun6 and vcrun2008.
Obviously, the appearance in the Italian version, but I manage with English.
For the future, why not create a "neutral file" (also for a fee) where everyone can set it up with the basic phrases and the reversal of the personal pronoun, so as to adapt it to each language?
I read the instructions you provide with Kari, but I can not figure out how to use the teaching.
Last thing and then I'll leave you, do you think might come out in the near future a version for Android?
Thanks again for everything and congratulations for a job well done.
Gaetano

P.S. I apologize for my English, but I use Goole traslate.

Thank you for the kind words.

Unfortunately, pronoun reversal works differently for each language and is custom to it's lexicon. I would need to adapt each version of Kari for each language based on the language - and I only know English and Spanish.

Anyway... that's great to hear about Kari running on Linux. I can't believe you got it to work. Good job!

Have a nice one.

Sergio

I'm curious how pronoun reversal varies from language to language, especially outside the Indo-European languages, since my comprehension is limited to English, Spanish, and the most elementary of Farsi.

I currently handle the issue with hardcoded but ambiguous (to account for other languages) management of pronouns and other references, and for oddities like me/i, inferencing based on neighboring terms.

Of course, Kari's smarter and far more fluid than that, and from my understanding, takes a more bottom-up approach to comprehension.

Well... I use a function that sorta hardcodes the pronouns in first.

Like...

I are happy today.

"are" gets hardcoded in even if it doesn't sound right. But at the end of the Kari process I have a function that determines what correct pronoun should be in there. And it becomes...

I am happy today.

I've tried to map out the Spanish pronouns but it's really complex. I don't know what other languages are like but I would also like to see Kari in Japanese.

Anyway, yes, it would be nice to have this pronoun problem licked for all languages someday.
