Virtual sex chat bot girls
This goes back to an "Eliza" AI chat program (see What is an "Eliza" program?
) that I wrote in early 1987, in the 2nd year of my undergraduate degree at University College Dublin, Ireland.
In 4th year (early 1989), I hooked it up to my Net account (on the node IRLEARN on EARN/BITNET), so that when I was logged off (or to be precise, disconnected, from a VM/CMS system), it would process all talk messages sent to me.
There were numerous hilarious incidents, but this is the best one. I've logged out and gone off with my girlfriend, leaving Eliza (or "MGonz" as I called it) to mind the fort.
Some coverage of AOLiza: Finally, I wrote the program when I was 18.
Some of the more conservative Web filtering programs would regard that as a minor and hence would have denied me the right to look at my own creation! So where does this name come from, people have asked.
Someone from Drake University, Iowa, USA (the node DRAKE on BITNET) where it is early afternoon.
for you it must have 05/02/89 :5 been 20 years 05/02/89 Police interrogation teams will be familiar with this method of "keep asking the same question, ignoring all answers, until he cracks". The next day, I logged in, and was amazed to find out what my machine had been up to in my absence.
Here is the So what's the secret of an effective Turing Test-passer? Hutchens, author of Mega HAL (see 1996 Loebner transcript), has written a document, How to Pass the Turing Test by Cheating.
I'd love to link from here to the real, Spanish MGONZ, but I'm afraid for the moment, he is lost somewhere out there in the ether. It has now spawned the name of a fictional person/bot "Liz" Gonzales (a combination of "Eliza" and "MGonz") in a story by Jon Camfield.
He also seems to have misread the first name as "Matthew" and named another character "Mateo" after it.
