The ANTswers team created all of the library and subject files, while the conversation, bot, and ready reference files are heavily edited and organized open-source files. ANTswers was developed using AIML (Artificial Intelligence Mark-up Language). You can find more information about AIML at http://www.alicebot.org/aiml.html.
ANTswers was developed by Danielle Kane and Chloe Lerit of the UC Irvine Libraries. Programming for ANTswers started in August of 2013 and went live in March of 2014.
