Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence has grown a lot past years. While looking for some AI issues for one of my projects, I found a chat bot that can answer questions. The program uses PHP and MySQL. I spent nearly 10 minutes talking to bot and trying to confuse it. Questions varies a lot from simple to quite sophisticated. I almost failed. So I decided to write a final statement and give up. But this was the statement where the bot choked:

But in general it was very impressive how AI bot could communicate. Interestingly it did not repeat the same answers to same questions.

  8. Seriously though, conversation programs have been around for a long, long time. Most famous among them is Eliza which dates back to times when there was only the command line.

    It's supposed to be a psychotherapy software. I remember a very funny discussion about blue cucumbers...
