Hello and Welcome to The Simon Laven Page. Launched in 1996 as a tiny site devoted to four Chatterbots it rapidly grew into one of the most comprehensive historical collections of Chatterbots on the Internet.
I am your host, Simon Laven, and you will find dozens of Chatterbots in the categories on the left, some are decades old. They can be accessed over the web or downloaded to your PC, mainly as DOS programs.
(A write-up of this site in Britain’s The Observer newspaper once joked that after they had downloaded ELIZA from here, they had to “rummage around in the attic to find a computer sufficiently underpowered to run it”).
So click on the links on the left to begin exploring the world of Chatterbots, and if you have any comments or questions then please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope you enjoy your visit.
