Chatterbot sex


Given her history, ELIZA would be by far the most important thing I'd ever had sex with.

Of course, the ELIZA I was trying to bone was one of many clones, and it's hard to say how close to the original it really comes, but after testing a few different versions, the results were equal parts frustrating and hilarious.

Here's a quick transcript of my failed attempt at sexting ELIZA. While I've yet to find logs of ELIZA's other illicit affairs, I can't imagine I'm the first to sexualize the pioneering fembot.

While my experience with ELIZA was nice and lighthearted, there's a sinister side to chatbots.

When Weizenbaum cooked up his little therapist at MIT, he had no way of knowing that it would spawn hordes of fraudsters and con-bots.

Naturally, my thoughts shifted to getting it on with a pioneering computer program.

ELIZA was developed at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in the mid-'60s by Joseph Weizenbaum.

Unfortunately, ELIZA isn't the most engaging of sexual partners. Either ELIZA wasn't feeling it, or I need a lesson in spitting chatbot game.
