CyberPsych – Eliza, the Computer Therapist: Hello, I am ELIZA

Let’s talk about your feelings.

The original ELIZA first appeared in the 60’s. She seems almost human. This example of artificial intelligence works best, however, if you limit your conversation to talking about yourself and your feelings. Full sentences will give better results.

To copy the dialog, you can download Screenpresso or use an app for Google Crome, IE or Foxpro called FireShot Screen Capture

Note: Eliza is still learning! Please let me know your experience with the computer therapist, and anything you might want to see improved. We are not using cookies or keeping a log of conversations, so please let us know exactly what you said and what Eliza said when sending comments to

Eliza is a creation of Weizenbaum 1966-2008. This javascript version of ELIZA was originally written by Michal Wallace and significantly enhanced by George Dunlop and now improved by Carol Lindemann.
