Was the year 1996 when the professor Weizenbaum created ELIZA, the first chatbot application and the first that the human could use to talk about their problems, because was a psychotherapist. Later, in 1971, Colby, Weber and Hilf developed PARRY, another chatbot, but this time was a paranoid schizophrenic made to chat with ELIZA. So they hooked up at ARPANET (pre-Internet) and put them to chat together. Do you want to know what happened? Don't left of read the rest of "When the machines talked to each other"

Although the majority of them have a voice very robotic, without intonation and feelings, but we can understand it. Here you see roughly how is imitated the human voice in a computer and because is so difficult achieve a voice equal to the human one.
