One supercomputer achieved a milestone in artificial intelligence — tricking judges into believing it was human and allegedly becoming the first computer to pass the Turing Test.
“Scientists at the Royal Society carried out a test devised by the man known as the father of computing, Alan Turing. A computer program mimicked a conversation and fooled 30% of the humans listening to it.” (Via BBC)
Researchers at the University of Reading developed the program. Their winning machine mimics a 13 year-old Ukrainian boy named "Eugene Goostman."
