L. I. C. E. but seems to be after Eliza, refers to itself in its 1980's documentation for the DOS version that I have as a "Virtual Human". There is no reference to it as a bot of any kind. Humorously enough, the DOS version still runs on my Windows Vista machine. I remember that Richard Wallace's original college web site announcing Alice had a section listing "influences" that listed, among other things, Virtual Woman, but when the site moved to its own server that link disappeared...I'm assuming for politically correct reasons. The original site was still on its EDU server up until a few years ago; if anyone can find it again it would be interesting to see if he was using the term chatbot then or something else. As the site could easily be dated it could give a snapshot of the terms in use at the time.

More linguistic snobbery:

ACE = artificial conversational entity
