Meet DAVE E.S.L. bot

You may remember that back in November we introduced you to Alan, an artificial-intelligence based chatbot. Well now there's DAVE E.S.L. bot. According to the A.L.I.C.E. AI Foundation site, Dave is an English teacher who "replies in perfect English just like a private English teacher or human chat partner! With tens of thousands of words in its vocabulary, he is the perfect private tutor." There is a charge of US$9.95 per month for the 'private lessons.' (Note: we have not used the service and cannot vouch for its authenticity)
