Development History

2017/12 Register LINE official account: Miri, and try to connect account with python program. The first version can only make echo responses of text messages, that is, respond to whatever the users send. There is not AI or semantic analysis related knowledge. The skills of Python was also very low.

2019/5 To further developed Miri, start to create a python project and try to develop the back-end program. At this stage, due to work and study in the first company, the master of python technology has gradually matured, and the newly created python program is connected with the LINE Miri account. It can processed text messages, using jieba and NLTK to analyze the incoming message, and set some replies to respond. At this time, there was no clear plan for Miri to be developed. I only know that I want to turn Miri into Siri in the future.

2019/10/19 Had some expected features and have thought how to train Miri for a long time. Finally because lacked of main concept so decided to develop one simple divination feature: Runes. Made a database for storing responses, allowing Miri to store the received messages in the database and reply messages.
