A great improvement over ELIZA Answered


MindMentor, the first robot psychologist

People affected by emotional problems are often reluctant when they're told to see a psychologist. Now, they can confidentially consult online MindMentor, the first robot psychologist. It will cost them €4.95 for one hour session (or about US$7.65 as of today).

( does anyone remember Eliza ? )

That IS an older form of psychoanalysis where the therapist would change what you said boomerang style into a question. So this is a fairly simplistic program.

Hmm... So it is a fairly simplistic program you say. Interesting...

It was "before the NET" :-) I got a copy of it from a BBS and they were kind enough to also allow me to download the source code (I do not know where THAT went), but it was in "normal" BASIC, so I made a few attempts at converting it to TRS-DOS BASIC. It didn't translate well....
