Eliza – Javascript AI Analyst Simulation

I found an archive of old games in a disk that I had from the says that I ran a BBS. Eliza was a popular demonstration of limited artificial intelligence. The version that found is very limited, but is still an interesting idea.

I converted the program from GWBASIC to JavasScript. I think I got it to work OK, but I can’t really tell.

Eliza is a Freudian therapist who answers questions with questions. It should, if you play along, lead you to reveal your deepest thoughts and ideas and guide you to greater self understanding. I, of course, am not a Freudian, but lean towards Jung. Jung was into story telling.

You can add this you your own page. Just grab the code and paste it into your blog or web page html.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
