I myself have been the moderator for online relationship forums starting back with People Link and Qlink (systems into which you had to dial in, before there was ubiquitous Internet), and even back then, the question came up quite regularly.Here’s the thing: ask just about anyone which bothers them more – the idea of their spouse or mate being physical with someone, or the idea of their spouse or mate becoming emotionally involved with someone, and the vast majority of them will say that the latter is far worse.This goes back to an "Eliza" AI chat program (see What is an "Eliza" program?) that I wrote in early 1987, in the 2nd year of my undergraduate degree at University College Dublin, Ireland.Whether you’re in store for something ordinary, or thinking a little kinky, you’ll always find what you need.

In 1995 I finally got around to setting up this page to tell everyone about it.
MGonz is finally written up as a book chapter: Humphrys, Mark (2008), "How my program passed the Turing Test", Chapter 15 of Parsing the Turing Test: Philosophical and Methodological Issues in the Quest for the Thinking Computer, Robert Epstein, Gary Roberts and Grace Beber (eds.), Springer, 2008.
In fact, back in 2014, there were reports that an artificial intelligence (AI) successfully passed the legendary Turing Test.
Named after Alan Turing, the tragic genius many acknowledge as the father of modern computing, the test is, on the surface, rather basic: a computer program must convince a human being it is also a human being during text-based conversations.
