Researchers find cunning loophole to help dumb AI pass the Turing Test

The Holy Grail of artificial intelligence is convincing a human that the AI is another human, and that they are therefore free to talk candidly about sports and current affairs. In 1950, Alan Turing developed the Turing Test which involved a human and a computer being asked a series of written questions. If a third party believed the computer was really the human, then it would have successfully passed the Turing Test. That’s a very high bar to entry. In the past, the Turing Test has been troubled by a computer pretending to be a child, but according to a new paper from the University of Coventry, there’s an even simpler solution. To paraphrase Ronan Keating, Artificial Intelligence says it best when it says nothing at all. Here’s how it…
