ANTswers is in Beta! ANTswers is an experimental chatbot that can answer questions about the UC Irvine Libraries. Talk to ANTswers using simple and short questions. Reply to questions with yes or no, or respond using the prompts supplied by ANTswers. The first link in a response will appear in a preview window, when you click on other links they will open in a new window. UCI Libraries' licensed online resources are available to current UC Irvine students, faculty & staff, use Connect From Off-Campus to enable remote access.

We will monitor the logs so if ANTswers gives an incorrect answer or is unable to answer a question we can then add information to improve its responses.

This program was developed using AIML (Artificial Intelligence Mark-up Language). You can find more information about AIML at
