DIY Omegle Chat Bot!

I have been chatting on  Omegle for quite some time now and I must say that i find it rather addictive. During one conversation, i encountered a bot and needless to say, i was hooked on to the convo ! I wanted to make one for myself badly somehow 🙂

A quick search later revealed that most of the chatter bots were based on the Artificial Intelligence Markup Language.It’s basically a rule based xml language which is used by the AI engine to give a response (a.k.a. categories) based on a set of  pre-loaded rules (a.k.a. topics).Such a topic-category definition is written in to a AIML file which the engine loads.  And guess what, there was a python implementation of  the AIML engine 😛 .This blog shows how to implement a standalone bot using PyAIML. I used the Annotated A.L.I.C.E. AIML files (AAA) for the engine’s rule base.

Now all i had to do was to find out how to connect to Omegle through code.Once that was done, i could capture what the stranger typed, pass it on to the engine and transmit back the response to the Omegle server .There is no ‘official’ documentation on the various connection string options but a good samaritan had written a python client for Omegle. I used that code (liberally!) to get connected.

Here’s the final listing:

#This omegle bot is based on the PyAIML and liberally uses code from PyOmegle
# PyAMIL:http://pyaiml.sourceforge.net/
# PyOmegle:http://code.google.com/p/pyomegle/

import aiml
import urllib2 as url
import urllib
import os
import time
import commands

k = aiml.Kernel()

if os.path.isfile("omeglebrain.brn"):
    k.bootstrap(brainFile = "omeglebrain.brn")
    #Change to the directory where the AIML files are located
    for item in list:
    #Change back to homedir to save the brain for subsequent loads

# #conversation ID
def fmtId( string ):

    return string[1:len( string ) - 1]

# #The event listener
def listenServer( id, req ):

    while True:

        site = url.urlopen(req)
        rec = site.read()

        if 'waiting' in rec:

        elif 'strangerDisconnected' in rec:
            print('Stranger Disconnected!')

        elif 'connected' in rec:
            print('Found one')

        elif 'typing' in rec:
            print("Stranger is typing...")

        elif 'gotMessage' in rec:
            input=rec[16:len( rec ) - 2]
	    print "Stranger:",input

# #Send the bot's response to Omegle
def talk(id,req,msg):

    typing = url.urlopen('http://omegle.com/typing', '&id='+id)
    time.sleep((len(msg))/5) #5 characters per second
    print "You:",msg
    msgReq = url.urlopen('http://omegle.com/send', '&msg='+msg+'&id='+id)

# #Initiate connecton
def omegleConnect():

    site = url.urlopen('http://omegle.com/start','')
    id = fmtId( site.read() )
    req = url.Request('http://omegle.com/events', urllib.urlencode( {'id':id}))
    print('Finding stranger...')


For this code to work, you need to download the AAA folder(files) into the directory where this python script is located.

We are good to go now! You can play around with the AIML files and even make your own  file for chat specific questions like “asl” ,”from”  etc. Here’s an interesting(?)  chat that my bot had:

    Awesome! Now a stranger wouldn’t be talking on omegele 😛
    Pretty cool work, I’m working on something similar, but not as cool as fooling people on omegele.
    Taking help from your code.

    @Abhishek:Idea Monk, May the source be with you 🙂

    Thanks !!
    So this is what I came up with this morning – http://ideamonk.madetokill.com/bakabot/ 🙂

    This is not working me for me… I have all the aiml files in the folder under /aaa/ where pyomegle.py is in /
    I also added the PyAiml files to / just in case, but when i open pyomegle.py it immediatly shuts down again, also i’m no python expert so i dont know if there is a log somewhere or atleast keep the window open to see the error.

      It needs python 2 not 3

    Well, it’s working sometimes and sometimes not.
    But how can you make it save conversations through a log ?
    Also, it randomly exits sometimes, and with pyaiml i couldnt do k.respond(“load aiml b”) as it gave me an error.
    If anyone can help me with this: shys_aelaes@yahoo.com

    Well I had managed to play with it and the code was pretty straightforward to pickup and modify into my own project – http://github.com/ideamonk/BakaBot

    I suggest you too do your side of some research as with the issues.

    I’m sure it wont be a boring journey.

    Omegle made some kind of update to their site and broke this bot. An updated version can be found here (the code must be changed to work. I was trying to pipe a text adventure through using subprocess, but it gets stuck)

    If anyone is still having trouble on making this Python Omeglebot working in 2012, check out my YouTube video and read through the description: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cM3aZh60jWc

    You are also welcome to view my other videos. Thanks.

    …Is it me or are people missing the obvious thing : The Turing Machine Test, supposed to demonstrate if a program has near-human intellect, resolves on testing if a program can fool a human being into believing it is another human being… ( of course it’s supposed to be tested on several people).
    I’d say this chat log was a most definit succes, now if you happen to convince every person who chats with your bot…well, You’ll become famous for creating the first AI machine ( assuming people in the AI business still think the Turing Machine Test is the one they have to beat to make something intelligent XD).

    Of course, the fact that I’ve managed to trick people into believing I was the bot is…a counter-argument… against the turing test having any validity 🙂

    Thanks for the bot, personally I’m trying to make a script to get the IP of any person I video-chat with (it’s a pain finding it in Wireshark, especially since my network has an extraordinary amount of trash ( as “anything I don’t care about” stuff) traffic flowing back and forth.
