The history of social botting can be traced back to Alan Turing in the 1950s and his vision of designing sets of instructional code that passes the Turing test.
From 1964 to 1966, ELIZA, a natural language processing computer program created by Joseph Weizenbaum, is an early indicator of artificial intelligence algorithms that inspired computer programmers to design tasked programs that can match behavior patterns to their sets of instruction.
you name her as you want The quiet sound of classical music rippled to life at my bedside.
I gave a long stretched over my head and rolled over.
With my face buried in my pillow my hand flopped out and slapped at the snooze button a few times until Mozart faded away.
Various designs of networking bots vary from chat bots, algorithms designed to converse with a human user, to social bots, algorithms designed to mimic human behaviors to converse with behavioral patterns similar to that of a human user.
Any bot interacting with (or 'spidering') any server that does not follow these rules should, in theory, be denied access to, or removed from, the affected website.
If the only rule implementation by a server is a posted text file with no associated program/software/app, then adhering to those rules is entirely voluntary – in reality there is no way to enforce those rules, or even to ensure that a bot's creator or implementer acknowledges, or even reads, the file contents. search engine spiders – while others can be used to launch malicious and harsh attacks, most notably, in political campaigns.
Typically, bots perform tasks that are both simple and structurally repetitive, at a much higher rate than would be possible for a human alone.
The largest use of bots is in web spidering (web crawler), in which an automated script fetches, analyzes and files information from web servers at many times the speed of a human.
