How To Make Simple Ai With Python

In this tutorial, we will learn how to create a simple AI (Artificial Intelligence) using Python. We will be using an AI technique called rule-based systems to create a basic AI capable of answering simple questions.

The primary focus will be on understanding the core concepts of AI rather than creating complicated AI models.

A basic understanding of Python programming will also be helpful in following this tutorial.

Step 1: Create a Python Script

First, we will create a new Python file named “”. Open your favorite text editor or IDE and create a new file with the following content:

The above code is a simple skeleton of our AI script. It reads user input in a loop and processes it using the process_input function. It breaks the loop when the user types “exit”.

Step 2: Implement Rule-Based AI Logic

Now, let’s implement the AI logic inside the process_input function. We will create a series of if-else conditions to process the user’s input and generate a response.

In this code snippet, we convert the user input to lowercase so that the AI is case-insensitive. Then, we match the user input with predefined rules and return the relevant reply.

Step 3: Test the AI

It’s time to test our simple AI. Run your Python script from the command line or your IDE:

And try asking the AI some questions.

Welcome to Simple AI
Enter your question: Hello
AI: Hello there!
Enter your question: How are you?
AI: I am an AI, I do not have feelings.
Enter your question: Are you a human?
AI: Sorry, I didn't understand your question.

In this tutorial, we learned how to create a simple rule-based AI using Python. This example was basic, but it demonstrates the core principle of AI development: processing user input, implementing logic, and generating responses.
