Turing test: no winner

Filed under: Uncategorized — ubikcan @ 11:37 am

There was no winner in the recent Turing test (a test for artificial intelligence: if a computer can fool an interlocutor into thinking it is human it has “passed” the test). See earlier story here.

According to the BBC no computer has ever passed, despite an easy pass threshold of only 30%. Compare that to university grades where 60% is pass (D) and 70% is a “C.”
