Chatbots have grown in popularity as natural language processing (NLP) has improved. An example is the Woebot developed by psychologists to assist people who are in need of cognitive behavioral therapy. Chatbots had their origin in the 1960s. One of the early chatbots was the ELIZA program developed at MIT. ELIZA employed very simple NLP and used some tricks to give the illusion that it is understanding what you are saying. For example, the computer could ask how you are feeling and you might say you are feeling blue.
