Virtual agents / Chatbots Directory

chatbot, chatterbot, conversational agent, virtual agent Racter Racter is an artificial intelligence simulator from 1984. Similar to Eliza, Racter will converse with the user until boredom occurs. However, there's a twist - Racter is not quite sane! This makes for a lot of fun conversation.

Racter was originally programmed on an early Apple computer.
chatbot, chatterbot, conversational agent, virtual agent Parry Parry is natural language program that simulates the thinking of a paranoid individual. This thinking entails the consistent misinterpretation of others motives – others must be up to no good, they must have concealed motives that are dangerous, and their inquiries into certain areas must be deflected - which Parry achieves via a complex system of assumptions, attributions, and "emotional responses" triggered by shifting weights assigned to verbal inputs.

Parry was the first to pass the Turing Test - it was in the early seventies, when human interrogators, interacting with the program via remote keyboard, were unable with more than random accuracy to distinguish Parry from an actual paranoid individual.
 
chatbot, chatterbot, conversational agent, virtual agent Eliza Eliza parodies a Rogerian therapist, largely by rephrasing many of the patient's statements as questions and posing them to the patient. Thus, for example, the response to "My head hurts" might be "Why do you say your head hurts?" The response to "My mother hates me" might be "Who else in your family hates you?" ELIZA was named after Eliza Doolittle, a working-class character in George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion, who is taught to speak with an upper class accent.
