Chatbots have actually been around since the 1960’s but have gotten more popular due to its compatibility with social network and messenger applications. In 1966, Joseph Weizenburg designed one of the first chatbots, which simulated a dialogue with a Rogerian psychotherapist. The chatbot acted as a passive therapist by rephrasing patient statements in the form of a question. (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, SJSU)
