Eliza is a framework that provides all of the essentials necessary to build an open-domain chatbot capable of fulfilling basic needs in natural language. This repo holds our implementation for these essentials, including modules that perform core NLP, context building, and more.


Firstly, a Sukima Backend is required to be running to host Eliza locally. In order to install and setup Sukima, please click here.

Then, you will have to clone and setup Eliza by running these commands:

$ git clone https://github.com/harubaru/eliza

$ cd eliza

$ pip install -r requirements.txt


After the setup is complete, you can use one of our default configurations listed in the config folder, or you can create your own by using the default as a template.


Then finally, to run the chatbot, all you would need to do is to run this command with your selected config file.

$ python eliza --config=config/twitter_yukari_yakumo.json
