A poetic Turing test was held at Dartmouth yesterday to pit artificial intelligence against human poets, AP reported. Good news: the computers lost.
A team of researchers from MIT has developed an artificial intelligence system that can fool human judges into thinking it’s a person when it comes to drawing unfamiliar letter-like characters.
The Turing Test, which is intended to detect human-like intelligence in a machine, is fundamentally flawed. But that doesn't mean it can't be improved or modified. Here are eight proposed alternatives that could help us distinguish bot from human.
28 Days Later and Sunshine writer Alex Garland's directorial debut attempts to sex up the Turing Test. And it's creepy. Really creepy. Check out the latest trailer for Ex Machina, which sets up the story a bit better than the previous trailers.
This coming weekend at Austin's annual convention of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, a group of AI experts will attend a workshop in hopes of hammering out a new-and-improved version of the Turing Test.
28 Days Later and Sunshine writer Alex Garland is back with a new science fiction thriller, this one about the line between human and AI. In Ex Machina, a programmer is tasked with evaluating the consciousness of a female-bodied AI, and things quickly take a turn for the very weird.
Nuance Communications has announced a new annual competition to develop artificially intelligent agents capable of solving the "Winograd Schema Challenge", a possible alternative to the Turing Test — and one that's intended to provide a more accurate measure of genuine machine intelligence.
Can you tell the difference between a chatbot and a PhD thesis advisor? PHD Comics puts college professors to the Turing Test, and they fail hilariously.
With the Turing test all over the news, Stephen Colbert asks "How close are we to having to battle AI for existence?" He also answers that question with "Now."
As many reported yesterday, a chatbot has passed the Turing Test, though under some very convenient conditions. The announcement has led some to declare that the age of AI is finally here, but that's nonsense. Here's why the Turing Test is a very poor way of measuring machine intelligence.
A Russian chatterbot named "Eugene Goostman" has become the first to pass the Turing Test – an assessment of machine intelligence first proposed in 1950 by visionary mathematician, logician and codebreaker Alan Turing – by convincing 1 in 3 judges that it was a 13-year-old non-native-English-speaking Ukrainian boy.
For the first time ever, a computer program has been able to fool a human into thinking it was another human, passing the Turing Test—the benchmark for artificial intelligence.
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.
Can you tell the difference between poetry written by a human and poetry generated by a computer? Bot or Not is a Turing test for poetry; take the quiz to see if you can guess the provenance of each poem. It turns out that some of those bots aren't half-bad poets.
"What are your favourite Sci Fi movies?" "I like Star Wars and The Matrix," comes the typed reply.
This Saturday, June 23rd, would have marked the 100th birthday of Alan Turing. A visionary mathematician, logician and codebreaker, Turing was a pioneer in the fields of computer science and artificial intelligence. A linchpin member of Ultra, Britain's World War II counterintelligence team, Turing created the…
Chatbots can convince you of remarkable things — like the necessity of clicking a link or giving away your credit card number. Mostly, though, they just want to make you believe that they're real breathing humans. And the creators of chatbot programs work hard to compensate for their lack of soul or independent will.
