by creating an interface the AI can execute the Interface and all DLL's implementing the interface.

This feature enables for a release of the AI, Giving the ability to issue updates which can be placed in the designated plugins/updates folder.

Here: An interface Called Iplugin defines the shape of the "Class" or the plugin to be designed. 
The main source code, can create an instance of the class and execute the "unknown class" extracting the "response" from the class to be used in the main script.

The load Plugins function, loads all dlls then only the classes which implement the interface.
