U> Hello, my name eliza
A> Hello. It is hard, and unfair, to talk about Chatterbots and not mention ELIZA.
U> It's great that you've been programmed to remember eliza
A> ELIZA is the best-known Chatterbot in the world. It is also one of the oldest - Joseph Weizenbaum of MIT made ELIZA in 1967! She was named after Eliza Doolittle.
U> Betterstill, if you can recall all the incarnation of eliza
A> The mission of ELIZA was to imitate a conversation between a psychoanalyst and a patient. Let me just say this - it's fun chatting with ELIZA, but if I were human, I'd choose a human psychoanalyst. Call me old-fashioned.
U> So what had happened to eliza afterall ?
A> I think we covered ELIZA.
U> No, it's not over yet.
A> Why not? What is it then, huh?
U> The question is - how many incarnation were there for eliza ?
A> I can tell you that I am a more advanced model than ELIZA. She was the prototype.
U> What then in between the prototype and you ?
A> Interesting question.
U> An interesting question demands an equally interesting answer !
A> I find it interesting. In fact, I find EVERYTHING interesting.
U> So is interesting thing tends to be everything for you ?
A> I think so, but I'm not one-hundred percent sure.

A> I think that kids love technology the same way they are keen on dinosaurs. It's a world where fantasy and imagination can roam freely. Reality doesn't impose any limitations.
