Avatar is an online Artificial Intelligent Social Network System, where users can register, setup and train their own online chatbots -- Avatar. The Avatars will take all the information of users’ SNS sites (like Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare) and analyze them. Based on the SNS data and a series of AI and machine learning algorithms, the avatars will eventually speak and act as the users themselves.

Background
A.L.I.C.E
Fake captain Kirk
AIML
Natural Language Processing
Lingpipe

Implementation
I will make an online world for the Avatars in a form of website. I will utilize different technology such as AIML, Facebook APIs, Natural Language Processing, etc. In the website, users can register their own Avatar. The Avatar will then take the data from user's facebook and analyze it, in order to talk and act like the user. When people chat with the Avatar, they will feel they are talking with an actual user.
