The Ready Reference files were created from open-source .aiml files from Git Hub. The files have been organized, reviewed, and updated. We pulled categories that provided a factual response into the Ready Reference files, but we may have missed a few in the conversation files so if you want to do further organizing, feel free. We also attempted to even up the treatment of men and women in science and politics. We found that women who have made contributions to society were either referred to as wives of their husbands or their contributions were ignored, for example, while there was an entry on Marie Curie, they did not mention that she was a Nobel Prize winner for her work with radioactivity.

There are 6 Ready Reference files, they are designated as rr_”broad subject area” and range from 10 KB to 160 KB. They can be downloaded individually or as a collection in a zip file.
