didn’t necessarily pass the Turing Test, since I didn’t care about playing into Eugene’s script, and therefore repeatedly ignored his questions about my job.Well, Turing didn’t say anything in his paper about the interrogator a robot as quickly as possible, not how to distinguish yourself from one. I’ve learned through mutual acquaintances that Vladimir Veselov, one of the creators of “Eugene,” has an excellent attitude about all of this.At RAND, we share our research publications in digital format free of charge as a public service.
) who uncritically repeated Warwick’s pronouncements. Incidentally, I strongly encourage people to read Stuart Shieber’s classic paper, Lessons from a Restricted Turing Test (about Shieber’s experiences with the Loebner Prize competition).
This is the paper where Shieber introduces the pogo-stick analogy, and where he crisply explains why AI researchers don’t currently focus their energies on chatbot competitions.
RAND research is conducted on a uniquely broad front for clients around the globe that include both the public and private sectors.
Research and analysis is carried out by four programs that address social and economic policy issues, both in the United States and overseas; by four federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs) that focus on U. national security policy issues; and by RAND's wholly owned subsidiaries, RAND Europe and RAND Australia.
If you haven’t read about it yet, “Eugene Goostman” is a chatbot that’s being heavily promoted by the University of Reading’s Kevin Warwick, for fooling 33% of judges in a recent Turing Test competition into thinking it was human, and thereby supposedly becoming “the first program to pass the Turing Test” as Turing defined it in his 1950 paper. In reality, while Turing did venture a prediction involving AIs fooling humans 30% of the time by the year 2000, he never set such a numerical milestone as the condition for “passing his test.” Much more importantly, Turing’s famous example dialogue, involving Mr. :-))) By the way, I still don’t know your specialty – or, possibly, I’ve missed it? Eugene: Just two, but Chernobyl mutants may have them up to five. Scott: No, I need to know that you’re not a chatbot. :-))) Oh, what a fruitful conversation;-) Scott: Do you understand why I’m asking such basic questions? Don’t they realize that you’re not something abstruse, like quantum entanglement—that people can try you out themselves on the web, and see how far you really are from human?
