I had a programme called ELIZA for my Amstrad PC1512. I think it was the first, if not one of the first, computer programmes that simulated someone having a conversation. It tended to come across like it was analysing you, and would often ask questions like 'why do you say…?' or 'how does that affect your mother' and especially 'tell me about your fantasies'. Who wants to be interrupted from having a pleasant conversation by being asked 'tell me about your fantasies?'smiley - grr

An analyst bot sounds good in principle, that it would come across as more realistic because it just gets you to do the talking, but that is rather creepy...

Even more creepy than me almost inadvertently inviting Cleverbot on a date smiley - laugh

I've not tested this, but I found out the other day that someone has made a bot that you can talk to about mental illness http://rebot.me/april-61
