German-American computer scientist Professor Joseph Weizenbaum from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology lectured on “Computer Power and Human Reason: Ethical Issues of Artificial Intelligence” in New England Building. The developer in 1964 and 1965 of a “conversational” program he called Eliza after the heroine of Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, Weizenbaum was troubled by its perception both among scientists and by the general public as having “intelligence.” His analysis of the dangers of this misconception in Computer Power and Human Reason: From Judgment to Calculation (1976) led to his estrangement from the growing community of cognitive scientists.
