AI would become a species and imbue itself with a "survival of the fittest/species."
    Agreed. And by the way, that IS the ultimate test of real intelligence.

    Re: Computer becomes first to pass Turing Test in artificial intelligence...

    It looks to me like this is cheating. By making the program impersonate a 13 year old boy whose first language isn't English, the human reviewers may be led to think that grammatical inconsistencies and nonsense answers are due to those features of the situation. What Turing had in mind is that a computer would have to convince a group of educated people, in their native language, that it was another educated adult. That's much harder to do, and this program doesn't appear to have done so.

    Do we need to start pondering what makes us human? It is increasingly evident that self awareness is no longer the sole criteria as computer ai makes interesting gains in becoming self aware. This has been tackled so many times by hollywood but I don't think any more poignant view has been made better than by Phillip K. Dick's "Do androids dream of electric sheep?" published in 1968 and better known as the sci-fi movie "Blade Runner". In both the book and movie, the question about what makes us human is asked, and if self aware artificial intelligence is given real people's memories, does that make them human? Is it really that we need to update our tests and probe empathy?

    The need to understand how such technology is used will also start to become an issue as the decades tick on. Phillip apparently was a visionary in so many ways.... Voigt-Kampf indeed.





    Do you see this technology in the long run being used for good or will humanity create another slave class as Blade Runner depicts?
    I'm probably the biggest proponent of AI, technology, and general excitement for the future that you are likely to find. But as many others have noted this isn't the most impressive achievement. What it shows is how advanced and sophisticated scripting programs have become and how out of date the Turing Test is as a litmus test for AI. Much more exciting are advances being made in supercomputing (we'll probably have a supercomputer that exceeds the raw processing power of the brain by the end of the decade), brain emulation and simulation, neural computing, and advanced AI programming.

    I still think we're decades away from 'Strong AI' but I believe we'll see it in my lifetime. Sometime in the next 30-70 years.

    The inevitable result of increasingly advanced bio-technology, the eventual advent of AI, and other associated technologies is the self-directed evolution of mankind. I highly doubt that what humans look like in 200 or 300 years will resemble what we look like today.

    I'm a little bit bummed, actually. My generation will miss the inevitable enslavement/extermination of the human race by the machines, but I'll most likely miss that brief window where we get to have robots tend to our every desire.

    At this point, I'm not surprised that we have an expert system that can MIMIC human text conversation well enough to fool some people into thinking it is a child.


    Key word: MIMIC.


    Until there is some self-awareness and abstract reasoning ability, it isn't truly artificial sapience.


    When the first machine, contrary to its programming, refuses to do something for you unless you give it something it wants in return, then you'll know AI is here.

    All I'm going to say is that the second half of this century is going to be really messed up.

    Look at Google's self driving cars, without any controls. You'd think they'd at least leave the option of interaction, in case of malfunctioning? Then again, companies like Google want excessive control over human action.

    I see with the scope of technology monitoring our every move and turn that corporations, with the cooperation of gov't, will begin to herd us more and more like cattle.

    Independence and individual innovation will be frowned upon with pressure to operate in a lockstep culture of *beep beep* and *blink blink* without depth, artistry or diversity for the purpose of group progress.

    I, for one, welcome our more efficient overlords. Even if they do decide im a waste. They are just soooo cool. Maybe we can convince AI to not leave us behind by being cool enough instead of fighting them.
