Experts Fooled into Thinking Computer is Human

The future belongs to the machine. A computer was able to mimic a 13-year-old boy and convince experts that it was human. This is the first time in the history of computing that a computer has passed the Turing test, an evaluation of a machine's intelligence named for the British mathematician Alan Turing.

 

The University of Reading organized the 2014 Turing Test at the Royal Society, the home of British science. The winning super-computer, dubbed '”Eugene Goostman,” along 4 other machines, “participated” in the competition to see if they could trick people into thinking they were real human. Eugene was able to convince 33% of the judges it was, in fact, a real boy, over the course of a five-minute conversation.

Eugene is a chatbot programmed to simulate the cognition of a 13-year-old Ukrainian boy. Its creators, Russian programmer Vladimir Veselov and Ukrainian software engineer Eugene Demchenko, hope this remarkable achievement will make people more interested in artificial intelligence.


 

And, boy, does this have huge implications for the modern digital society! This marks a milestone in artificial intelligence, as it proves that we humans find it hard to distinguish machines from, well, us. There may also be practical applications for a machine like Eugene, such as fighting cybercrime.

 

The Turing Test 2014 took place on the 60th anniversary of the death of Mr. Alan Turing, who had laid the foundations of computing, and died by “accidental” suicide after being criminally charged with homosexuality in 1952. He was granted a posthumous Royal Pardon last December.
