Eliza '17

A Rogerian Robot for Facebook Messenger!

Meet Eliza

Eliza was the original chatbot, built in 1964 at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory by Joseph Weizenbaum.

She is designed to mimic a Rogerian psychotherapist, giving typical yet dynamic responses to your input.

I've given Eliza a modern update, refactoring all the code and making her compatible with Facebook Messenger. To get started, send her a message on Messenger by scanning the image on the right, or by clicking here!


Eliza '17 does not provide, and is not a substitute for, medical, psychological, or psychiatric diagnosis or advice. Always consult with a qualified mental health professional if you have concerns for your wellbeing.

And what would you like to have happen?
