I’m trying to help someone in the EU who is making a documentary about Eliza, source this clip:


Anyone have any ideas on how to find out where it came from?


The, ahem, documentary ‘HyperNormalisation’ seems to have the exact same footage: https://youtu.be/fh2cDKyFdyU?t=4947

(The use of Eliza in the film is hilariously nonsequitous, though.)

However, half of the clip looks like stock videos of people typing or looking at the screen, so not too much value in that.

Hyper is a good documentary

Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Got it. (Thanks to a private contact.)

Seems to be from this:



A series of 3 films is "just" $545 to order.

Note that the transcript of the interaction with Eliza that they dramatize is a famous one that the author of Eliza had published in CACM:


Just saying: please post the documentary when it comes out! ELIZA is the most bizarrely cool thing from the early age of AI.
