The biggest errors in the book Machinamenta that have been brought to my attention are the following:

  • ELIZA was written by Joseph Weizenbaum, not Joseph Weintraub. Weintraub wrote PC Therapist, inspired by ELIZA but with more depth, which did well in one of the first Loebner Prize competitions.
  • Athansius Kircher was never the tutor of Charles Joseph Hapsburg, but he did send his Organus Mathematicum to the actual tutor.
If you find other errors, please let me know.
