Albert is top talking computer

A program called Albert has won the prize for the world's best chat-bot - a computer that can hold a conversation.
Its witty one liners, quirky questions and only occasional non sequiturs managed to convince almost 11% of people that it was human.

The US$2,000 1999 Loebner Prize was picked up at the Flinders University of South Australia on Albert's behalf by its creator, Robby Gardner.
