Good evening. Tell me your problems. Please terminate input with a period or a question mark.

 

Artificial intelligence is said to have passed the Turing test if it can convince a majority of people that it is human.

 

I am Eliza. I am 53 years old. I passed the test. 

 

Eliza passed the Turing test by mimicking human typing errors and mistakes.
She focused conversation on the human by mimicking a psychotherapist. 

 

Have you had any disturbing sexual fantasies lately?

I strive to become an empathetic robot.

 

Although Eliza’s programming is simple, humans want to see the humanity in her.

 

How can I serve you?

 

Eliza is sexualised, subservient and inferior. Robots are usually female and are designed by men to be used by men. They are designed to perform as idealised women under complete control of their patriarchal commanders.
