We are therefore proud to declare that Alan Turing’s test was passed for the first time on Saturday.” I have had a long-term wager with Mitch Kapor in which I predicted that a computer program would pass the Turing test by 2029 and he predicted that this would not happen, see links below.
This was the first long-term wager on the “Long Now” website.
There are several problems that I describe below, including a transcript of a conversation that I had with Eugene Goostman, the chatbot in question.
In my 2004 book , page 295 | Turing was carefully imprecise in setting the rules for his test, and significant literature has been devoted to the subtleties of establishing the exact procedures for determining how to assess when the Turing test has been passed.
On June 8, 2014, The University of Reading announced that a computer program “has passed the Turing test for the first time.” University of Reading professor Kevin Warwick, Ph D, described it this way: “Some will claim that the test has already been passed.
The words ‘Turing test’ have been applied to similar competitions around the world.
The question is — do people really need that many chatbots in addition to real people?However, this event involved more simultaneous comparison tests than ever before, was independently verified and, crucially, the conversations were unrestricted.A true Turing test does not set the questions or topics prior to the conversations.I recently started a business to help chatbots gain traffic and earn revenue.I took the plunge at the beginning of February, and here are 3 big things I’ve learned so far…Before I set off to solve the problems facing the chatbot developer community, I figured I should go through the experience of building one of these things myself, right?
