For the first time a Russian team managed to fool more than 30 percent of human interrogators to believe that the computer is a human.
It was not Siri or similar type of technology, but it seems that the artificial intelligence is moving so fast that the day is not so far when it will fool all of us by doing all the activities that human being does . A Russian team created a program that passed the Turing Test. Named after Alan Turing who passed away on 7 June, 1954, the challenge is to convince a minimum of 30 percent people that the computer is a real person just like them.
According to Independent reports, the test was conducted at the Royal Society in London and the Eugene Goostman program managed to convince 33 percent people that it was a boy of 13 years old from Odessa, Ukraine.
University of Reading organized the event. The University claims that this is the first time the Turing Test has passed with flying deception. Professor Ken Warwick, a professor at Reading University said that some would say that the Turing Test has been passed. However, a true Turing Test does not set the topics or questions prior to the conversations.
