People dies everyday. Some of them because they’re old and his/her life comes to an end. On March 5th, Joseph Weizenbaum, a German-American author and professor emeritus of computer science at MIT, passed away. I’ve just read it in a posted blog article while looking for AI news in Internet. He’s the author of ELIZA a computer program which parodied a Rogerian therapist. This program raised some interesting questions about Turing Tests and human machine interaction.
