Eliza was an early attempt at computer AI. The idea was that it would be something like a computer therapist, where you would enter your problems and it would reply with further probing questions to help you with your problems. In practice, due to the simplistic algorithms used, it was most often a thoroughly frustrating experience. (See the screenshot for an example.) This thing is probably good for a laugh and nothing more ... it's all text. ;) As the author says, "Eliza can either cure your psychosis or generate new ones depending on how you take it." There are many versions of this program, this copy includes source code in both Basic and Pascal.
