basic philosophy behind P.A.U.L.A is making a product not only focusing
on advanced artificial intelligence, but rather an artificial being
- a companion easy and fun chatting with no matter how old you are.
No matter if you're looking for a grown up chat, a fun discussion,
a toy suitable for your children or if you're simply looking to
explore the powers of an artificial intelligence as you've never
experienced it before - P.A.U.L.A is the chatter bot for you! It
feels, it thinks, it understands and it even learns from you.
could write this in a third person perspective, or simply using
the word "us" as in "We created Paula." or "We
are currently aiming towards...". But I won't, because there
is really no "we", only "I". My name is Paolo, and I am the
creator of P.A.U.L.A the artificial intelligence.

the fall of 1999, I first created an artificial girl whom I called
Paula. Because programming was only a hobby of mine and still is,
I didn't really focus much on her development and decided to practically
hand her out for free although there was a registration fee of 10$
for those who decided to use the program for more than thirty days.
Upon registration, there was no patch, no key, no code. The program
had no shareware limitations, and paying the ten dollars didn't
change much - the user just cleared his or her heart from knowing
that there was actually some time spent behind the making of the
program. Not allot of time, but the time of ten bucks at least!
couple of days after I'd published Paula on my official web site
something happened. A big web site published an article on the program
and in the matter of a few days tens of thousands of people downloaded
Paula. I don't know how many of these actually liked the program,
and kept it for more than thirty days - but had as many as half
of all the people downloading the program actually paid for it,
I would have enough money to afford producing my film productions
by myself. Today, Paula has probably been downloaded by more than
half a million people. How many of these have paid me the ten bucks
I asked for? Around forty people. That's a percentage of less than
0.000084 - And people call me cheep for wanting ten dollars as a
it's time for the next generation of the Paula software - P.A.U.L.A
SG. It's rewritten from scratch, and the artificial intelligence
- its understanding and learning capabilities are superior compared
to any older versions. Paula is no longer the name of a female robot,
but the name of the Second Generation of an artificial intelligence
as you've never seen it before. It is no longer only a female bot
- but a fully customizable intelligence; Paolo's Artificial Unit
Limited to Assimilation.
