Turing Test: Computer Program Convinces Judges It's Human - NBC News.com
This is big. A computer program has successfully managed to fool a bunch of researchers into thinking that it was a 13-year-old boy named Eugene Goostman. In doing so, it has become the first in the world to have successfully passed the Turing Test. The test is named after computer pioneer Alan Turing. To pass it, a computer program needs to dupe 30 percent of human judges in five-minute, text-based chats, a feat that until now had never been accomplished.
Note: this is not the computer, however it could
be what 'computers/androids' looks like in the future
The Turing Test is based on “the father of modern computer science” Alan Turing’s question, “Can Machines Think?” If a computer is mistaken for a human by more than 30 percent of judges, it passes the test, but no computer has accomplished the feat — until now.
