‚Eugene Goostman‘ fools 33% of interrogators into thinking it is human, in what is seen as a milestone in artificial intelligence
A „super computer“ has duped humans into thinking it was a 13-year-old boy to become the first machine to pass the Turing test, experts have said. Five machines were tested at the Royal Society in central London to see if they could fool people into thinking they were humans during text-based conversations.
[…] No computer had ever previously passed the Turing test, which requires 30% of human interrogators to be duped during a series of five-minute keyboard conversations, organisers from the University of Reading said.
But „Eugene Goostman“, a computer programme developed to simulate a 13-year-old boy, managed to convince 33% of the judges that it was human, the university said.
