    Who is Simon Laven?
  • What is a Chatterbot?
    A Chatterbot is a program that attempts to simulate typed conversation, with the aim of at least temporarily fooling a human into thinking they were talking to another person.
    Hello and Welcome to The Simon Laven Page. Launched in 1996 as a tiny site devoted to four Chatterbots it rapidly grew as people such as yourself started visiting one of the most comprehensive Chatterbot websites on the Internet.

    I am your host, Simon Laven, and on this site you will find dozens of Chatterbots in the nine categories. They can be accessed over the web or downloaded to your PC.

    If you want to read up on the subject or get hold of movies from 2001 to Short Circuit, The Simon Laven Page also offers a selection of top Books, DVD's, Blu-ray's, and Toys related to Artificial Intelligence.

    I've also inadvertently started a wider discussion about getting DOS programs to work for people with 64-bit Windows (without the mess of separate emulators). Here's the original post: Musing on getting DOS Programs to work in 64-bit Windows.
