Computer Gets a Third of Judges to Think it is Human

While the computer did not pass the Turing Test, which is designed to show if a computer exhibits intelligent behavior, it did fool a third of the judges. The Turing Test is meant to show if a computer is intelligent by fooling people into thinking it is human. The judges had a five minute text based conversation with the computer and made a third of them think it was a 13 year old boy. This test is meant to determine if a machine can think by being able to make others think it is human. A computer passing the test would be a huge milestone in AI. While it did not fool a majority of the people who “spoke” to this computer this is the best at the endeavor so far. As technology improves and logic algorithms continue to get better as the work continues it will not be long before a machine passes the Turing Test.
