ChatGPT, the large language model-based “artificial intelligence” from OpenAI, echoes an earlier attempt at AI: ELIZA, a 1966 chatbot by MIT’s Joseph Weizenbaum. The program, which simulated a psychologist responding to text input, resulted in many users ascribing human behaviors to computers.

Retrocomputing channel P-Lab, whose videos include many Apple-1 hardware demos, has now introduced ELIZA to ChatGPT, with the former running on an Apple-1 replica. Here is the five-minute video of the ensuing dialogue.
