Turing Test Breakthrough

Eugene Goostman Turing Test

On June 7, 2014, a Russian-based team is said to be the first to create a program that passed the Turing Test. Named after Alan Turing the challenge is to persuade a minimum of 30 percent of humans that the computer is a real person. This is a major milestone in the path towards development of true artificial intelligence.

In tests conducted at the Royal Society in London, the Eugene Goostman program managed to persuade 33 percent of people that it was a 13-year-old boy from Odessa, Ukraine.

We can’t wait to hear what Ray Kurzweil has to say about this!
