Artificial Intelligence reached

Amazing achievement in robotics. After more than 60 years since its conception, a computer was able to pass the Turing Test. If confirmed, a new age of robotics could dawn.

In more detail, the computer program managed to trick 33% of dialogue partners that they were conversing with a human. Specifically, a 13-year old boy named Eugene Goostman from Odessa.

Re: Artificial Intelligence reached

Science would do well to stay one step ahead of Science Fiction, in interest of Mankind.

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”

Re: Artificial Intelligence reached

People should really take a look at this article before claiming AI has been achieved.

Re: Artificial Intelligence reached

One of the comments summs it up nicely:

This story is totally bogus, by the way.

It wasn't a "computer", just a chat-bot program that simulates conversation by plugging in somewhat plausible answers to user queries. There's really no semantic processing going on here, and this Eugene Gootsman isn't even the best chat bot out there.

Although with people being so easily duped, I can definitely see how this thing fooled 30% of the jury
And this intro on Wikipedia leaves little for doubt:

Quote:
A chatter robot, chatterbot, chatbot, or chat bot is a computer program designed to simulate an intelligent conversation with one or more human users via auditory or textual methods, primarily for engaging in small talk. The primary aim of such simulation has been to fool the user into thinking that the program's output has been produced by a human. See the Turing test. Programs playing this role are sometimes referred to as Artificial Conversational Entities, talk bots or chatterboxes. In addition, however, chatterbots are often integrated into dialog systems for various practical purposes such as offline help, personalised service, or information acquisition. Some chatterbots use sophisticated natural language processing systems, but many simply scan for keywords within the input and pull a reply with the most matching keywords, or the most similar wording pattern, from a textual database.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

In other words , a more basic model of V.I. Virtual Intelligence .

Well, if this is AI, then I guess Apple's Siri could be one too

a bit blunt but yeah. It's more the judges failing that the "AI" passing.

The others who failed big time, are the media (what a surprise ).

Quote:
‘I believe that in about fifty years’ time [from 1950] it will be possible, to programme computers, with a storage capacity of about 10^9 [i.e. a billion bits, corrected from link], to make them play the imitation game so well that an average interrogator will not have more than 70 per cent chance of making the right identification after five minutes of questioning’
I took this from http://www.loebner.net/Prizef/TuringArticle.html

Resumed, Turing believed that by 2000 we'd have a 128 MB imitate a human well enough to fool 70% of the people for 5 minutes.

He doesn't say that this means it can be called intelligent nor that this can reasonably be expected of an intelligent machine.

After all, it's a pretty minimal thing, the requisites set by AT. The test is a measure of the capability of a computer and of an average person – but it is not, any sort of reliable measure of artificial intelligence.

On the other hand, if the chatbot can fool, at least half when interacting with them for days, then I’d be willing to give it's “intelligent” status a chance.

bah, tl;dr the link Police of Mind gave explains it better. Just, a big no.

Re: Artificial Intelligence reached

I want to see transcripts of those conversations. I imagine they went a little something like this.

Quote:
A: Hi, I am Eugene Goostman from Odessa. I am 13 years old.
B. Oh hey, you sound like a totally real person and not at all like a made up character.

Re: Artificial Intelligence reached

Well, if they tested people in America, I wouldn't be surprised if almost 1 third of those people got duped. At least a third of our country doesn't even know simple things that have happened in our country, and are not aware of any current events. It really is a testament to how stupid society has become, and not how intelligent this bot truly is.

10 rank of Nadal when he beat him at Wimby.
9 ATP World Tour quarterfinals.
8 December, 1984 is his birthday.
7 straight seasons in the top 200.
6 ATP Challenger Tour titles.
5 ATP World Tour doubles title finals.
4 games won against Djokovic.
3 wins against the top 10.
2-0 record against Nadal.
1 ATP World Tour singles semifinal.
0 ATP Masters wins, ATP Singles finals/titles.

This was found to be untrue, a supercomputer DID NOT in fact pass the Turing test.

Re: Artificial Intelligence reached

so what's Goostman's username on MTF?

we could do with some "artificial intelligence" -- the natural kind is starting to stink up this place

Hi. I am Eugene Goostman from Odessa. I am 13 years old. This thing is a very good thing. That computer must be very smart.

Re: Artificial Intelligence reached

To add to the fray of these responses, a sample of a conversation that will convince you that artificial intelligence was not reached after all.

Me: Is there a God?
