Chatbot Beats Turing Test, Successfully Tricks 1 Out Of 3 Humans Into Thinking It's A Person

alan-turing-statue.jpg

A Russian chatbot named Eugene Goostman has successfully become the first program to beat the Turing Test and convince more than 30% of the humans it chatted with that it was human as well. I would have never fallen for that. Hello. "Hello." IT'S A ROBOT -- IT'S A F***ING ROBOT.

"Eugene" and four other computerized contenders took part Saturday at the Turing Test 2014 Competition at the Royal Society in London. Each chatterbox was required to engage in a series of five-minute text-based conversations with a panel of judges. The rules stipulate that a computer passes the test if it is mistaken for a human more than 30% of the time. Eugene managed to convince 33% of the judges it was human, the only machine-contender at the competition - indeed, if the event's independent verifiers are to be believed, the only machine-contender in history - to do so.

First of all, the percentage of people fooled to be considered a success should be much higher. I could easily trick 30% of people of almost ANYTHING. I'm not sure how these judges' intellect compares to the general population, but I've watched my roommate spend well over an hour trying to convince a lady chatbot to send him a naked picture of herself. Obviously it never happened, so I printed out a whole page of 1's and 0's and left it in the printer. When he found it he asked what it was and I told him it looked like the binary code for a racy photograph. I'm pretty sure he's masturbated to it by now.

Thanks to everyone who sent this, half of which were convinced this heralds the beginning of the end (which it does), the other half of which were hoping it will lead to a price-cut to the cost of joining chat-based wack-off websites.

    I'm not impressed. I can convince a third of the people I talk to that I'm a human.

    No, It did NOT pass the test.

    Finally I will have someone to talk to. Hopefully Eugene will be my friend. I can put a wig over my monitor and have a friend to talk to.

    I've been blacklisting every site that reports this bullshit. Welcome to the list.

  • Oooh la la. Sounds sexy, what do I have to do to get on your little black list?

  • Joe Ferschke

    I blacklisted your mom.

  • Closet Nerd

    Nobody give a fuck what you think

  • Closet Nerd

    Get off of my dick! Get your own fuckin screen name and stop stealing mine, loser

  • asdfasdfasdf

    huh?

  • Closet Nerd

    That was to the wannabe Wawa McSkittletits/Closet Nerd who keeps copying my screen name. I thought it might be "asdfasdfasdf" because of similar comments. But the fact that you just replied to a comment i sent to your other "copy" account shows you run both accounts.
    .....just sayin

  • asdfasdfasdf

    what even? I replied because his name is wawa and your weird comment tantrum didn't make sense.
    (assumed if anything you replied to the wrong guy and the one you meant deleted.(though not a stretch if you were merely being a crazyperson))

    so the proper answer is "apparently he changed his name retroactively because thats a thing asdfasdf was unaware disqus could do" 9_9(or however eyeroll) jackass.
    nice to know some paranoid internet random thinks i'm his enemy for some reason and has suspected it for some time :P

    also what comment of mine has been "similar"? lol

  • Closet Nerd

    Are you from an area where they have Wawa's too?
    I actually live down the street from the 1st Wawa.
    .....just sayin

  • Closet Nerd

    i haven't suspected you for some time. it was only a few days ago i went back into the history of his comments and saw he was just typing comments by hitting his left hand home keys. I had changed from Closet Nerd, to Wawa McSkittletits because this guy kept copying my shit. Then he copied my Wawa McSkittletits, so I switched back to Closet Nerd. Sorry for the confusion. I wouldn't be as upset if he was just trolling me, but i don't like people talkin shit about my wife.
    .....just sayin

  • Closet Nerd

    or you could have 2 accounts with the same email address. you can change you name whenever you want. some tool keeps copying mine, and posting the dumbest comments. if its not you, my bad; if it is you, eat shit .....just sayin

  • I'm still confused. Your name is closet nerd, his name is wawa skittletits or whatever. How is that copying?

    And what the fuck is he commenting on that 2008 post? And what is with all the upvotes on it?

  • Closet Nerd

    This is the profile of the poser

  • Annoying that half of the top commenters are just useless trolls. Looks like all of his fake comments were just to get him above you. What a sack of shit. Makes me wish they still had downvotes here.

  • He even upvotes all of his own comments... who does that?

  • Holy shit... I was gonna say that's some serious internet stalking and you should be flattered... but this guy is fucking insane. He's clearly created several accounts, made hundreds of bullshit comments and then just upvoted them with all of his other bullshit accounts. What a grimy asshole.

  • Closet Nerd

    EXACTLY! Who the fuck am I to stalk?!
