In 1964, researchers at MIT university were working on a computer program. A program so ahead of its time that it would allow seamless communication between humans and machines.
By 1966, they built ELIZA, an app that would set the foundation for all future chatbots. What made ELIZA so impressive was the introduction of keyword-enabled responses. For the first time, users felt they were talking to someone who understood their input.
By 1995, another language processing bot, A.L.I.C.E, came out and was followed by SmarterChild in 2001, setting the stage for all the current generation chatbots.
