And Sherry Turkle of MIT helps tell the story of ELIZA, a program designed in the 1960s to mimic responses as though it were a therapist. It's perfect time to make some plans for the future and it's time to be happy.
At first, ELIZA's creator Joseph Weizenbaum thought the idea of a computer therapist was funny. I've read this post and if I may just I wish to suggest you some attention-grabbing things or advice. I'm not getting even the thinnest illusion of talking to a human.
Is it possible that cleverbot can be put online (instead of being just a downloadable app), so that computer users, particularly English learners, can simply link to it and chat with it to improve their English? As the submitter answers these questions, the associated stored cases are re-scored, and more questions are returned. Hopefully, I'll regain consciousness in a new living organism on another planet or galaxy.
As the submitter answers more, a stored case becomes "the winner,” and increasingly more specific questions are sent back. My employers' software was used to provide call center reps with automated (and standardized) ways to answer callers’ questions. User: Would you like to explore the universe if you can live forever?
Anybody who doesn't know what DOS is will only be confused by that claim.

The "story" that results is the false narrative created by the writer, who can only stare at what is plainly unintelligible to him or her and then represent that void by invoking notions they've acquired from fiction, sideshow and personal fantasy. As opposed to simple decision trees, CBR uses stored cases with associated questions organized into a "knowledge base." A presented case, e.g. Cleverbot: Human.___________ User: Why do you hate women? I just chatted with Elbot the Robot ( and he left me a little disappointed response-wise. "My printer won't work" is scored based on keyword matching of the incoming question, and questions associated to the stored cases are presented on the highest scoring stored cases. These cons were trying a fast-track to getting money out of me. I've long had a theory that men's "theory of mind", their ability to make inferences about others' mental states, simply shuts down in the presence of an attractive woman, literally "object-ifying" her.
