WIkipedia api
« on: March 17, 2013, 05:49:48 pm »

I have been playing with a program called JEANNIE on my tablet and it pulls info from Wikipedia to give it a more artificial intelligence type logic.  In hunting around I noticed that Wikipedia has an API I thought is would be cool if PCC could interface with it to answer questions giving PCC a AI personality   :`)    (RoFL)

Anyone else have thoughts On this  ::)

with the use of PCC4 my setup keeps getting more life like this would allow PCC to be more conversational I would think  :`)

Can you post a link to the API and I'll have a look at it?
I had thought of adding something like this however there always seems to be some other wish that side tracks me.  (CZB)

It sounds like the api is mediawiki that allows programs to interact with Wikipedia   here is the link to the main page. 
I think this is what you need but if not let me know.  I will do more digging.  but I'm not a programmer so reading alot of it is greek to me  (RoFL)
