I’m a researcher and I’m currently conducting a research project. I will conduct a study where I would like to trigger different emotions using chatbots on a smartphone (e.g. on Facebook Messenger).

Are there any existing chatbots which are able to trigger different emotions intentionally (also negative ones)?

Emotions can of course be triggered by lots of different things. I think the most rich source could well be socialbots like Mitsuku.com and Zo.ai -- Steve Worswick is the owner of Mitsuku and may be interested in helping you by doing (appropriately filtered) chat log queries. You can get him on Twitter at @Mitsuku.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks a lot. I have dropped some lines to steve. I also had a look at Misuku and Zo. They are very interesting and pretty intelligent but if a participant is using them for 30 minutes I think not a wide range of emotions is triggered (most of the time only positive emotions I think). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I have played around with Mitsuku and Zo. These bots are mostly triggering positive emotions. Do you know bots which are nasty or confusing (writing garbage)? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @machinery Mitsuku will get quite aggressive if you're agressive to it. If you want a mirror, check out replika.ai. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Do you know other socialbots like Mitsuku and Zo and cleverbot? I also like cleverbot because it can get pretty confusing and surprising discussions. Unfortuantely, cleverbot is not available in skype or facebook messenger. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I was supremely unimpressed with Cleverbot unfortunately -- nothing I did with it was really coherent. But the "surprise factor" yes sometimes people like that, perhaps for entertainment. Replika.ai is a good one too. I typically talk about Jessie too but it doesn't appear to have been kept online facebook.com/JessieHumani $\endgroup$
