A modern take on Eliza

Eliza was an early artificial intelligence that simulated a psychiatrist. The user could interact with it giving answers to questions posed.

Although quite simple, it did manage to fool some people into thinking that it was a real person, just like a Turing Test. It’s what first interested me in artificial intelligence. This is a much more modern approach.

I wonder how many people will be fooled this time?
