Welcome to HobbyWare.Org. This is a collection of my programs and projects which are free downloads to anyone who wants them.

The release of Stronghold CMD v1.10 is now live. There is a short 5 minute video depicting the new features of the software. The software now includes emotions displayed through a life like animated avatar of yours truly. All the basic emotions are covered, from sad to happy to mad to surprised. There is also a new implementation of cloud based speech using Microsoft Cognitive services, aka Project Oxford. Using this new speech recognition technology you can chat with Stronghold CMD, and the program will formulate a reply based on what you said. With a little imagination it can be quite entertaining to use. You can download the source code for yourself or install the program on your own computer to see Stronghold CMD in action. Find everything in the projects section, subheading Stronghold CMD.

Last months update was an article on basic artificial intelligence. Specifically how to construct a Markov chain using simple sentence fed to the program and then have it output a semi-intelligent, semi grammatically correct reply. This is a great way to create a chat bot or other social bot of some type, I go over the basic theory, how to setup your database, the restrictions of Markov chains and how to potentially improve the Markov chain process. You read the article under the Computers heading sub-heading artificial intelligence then clicking the button for Markov Chains.
