:AI in general and Neural Nets specifically have been extensively discussed

:may be a good starting point. As for a mud that is actually using it...
:hmm, Nathan's maybe? I don't know, I've never played on a mud that has an
:AI worth mentioning. :(

I use NNs for my "skill" system, or character based learning, and client
based, NLP linked fast-reordering nets (sort of a bastard neural net) in
the client command interpreter, or client based learning. The client has
a bit of a brain... it remembers what you've been up to, and association
of your last several dozen commands. The skill net works, but the client
is incomplete, and has been dormant for a long time. I'm a busy guy, and
mud development is getting the shaft in favor of quantum physics, comics
and editorial cartoons, and writing.
