The Loebner prize is an award given out every year to a chatterbot.[1] The winner is chosen by a Turing test: Each judge talks (text-based) to a chatterbot and to a human. The judge guesses which is which. The contest started in 1990 by Hugh Loebner.[1] The first winner was "Whimsical Conversation".[2]
