Hailo is a fast and lightweight markov engine intended to replace AI::MegaHAL. It has a Mouse (or Moose) based core with pluggable storage, tokenizer, and engine backends. It is similar to MegaHAL in functionality. The main differences (with the default backends) are better scalability, drastically less memory usage, an improved tokenizer, and tidier output. With this distribution, you can create, modify, and query Hailo brains. To use Hailo in event-driven POE applications, you can use the POE::Component::Hailo wrapper. One example is POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::Hailo, which implements an IRC chat bot.
Job-Machine is a small, but versatile system for sending jobs to a message queue and, if necessary, communicating answers back to the sender. Job::Machine uses LISTEN / NOTIFY from PostgreSQL to send signals between clients and workers. This ensures very efficient message passing, giving any worker that is awake the chance to start working immediately.
