ELIZA’s Adventures in the Uncanny Valley explores what it is to be human, and how artificial intelligence modifies human characteristics resulting in the scrutiny of what is real and what is illusion.In the early 1960s, MIT developed artificial intelligence software called ELIZA, its title a reference to Shaw’s Pygmalion. ELIZA made certain kinds of conversations between humans and computers possible.
