Behaviour Capture and Test

Behaviour Capture and Test, or BCT is a relatively recent technique used in system diagnosis and AI character development fields, to monitor how a system, or player?s character behaves in a given situation, then capture the essential characteristics of the behaviour.

These characteristics are then compared to other, similar situations, to determine best fit. Characteristics that work better than already known ones are then used to replace existing behaviour.

In this way, behaviour of the system improves as more and more comparisons to other?s reactions are performed.

A Turing Test of Actions, Not Words
On the 26th of September 2012, on the centenary of inventor of the test, mathematician Alan Turning's birth, a form of the Turing Test not based on words, succeeded. An AI was considered more human than most humans involved in the test.

Lego AR Kiosks: Colour Magic Symbol
At the beginning of 2009, Lego announced in a press release that they were teaming with German AR developer Metaio to develop an augmented reality solution for Lego kits. This went on sale in Germany and California, as test markets. So far, the test is not over, but from all indications they are doing very well.

The Loebner Prize
The Loebner Prize for artificial intelligence is an annual contest, designed to put artificially intelligent chat programs through their paces. It uses the Turing Test for AI, as conceptualised by Alan Turing in the 1950 paper "Computing machinery and intelligence". In the decades since then, the Loebner prize is the first attempt to take the Turing test seriously, as a benchmark for AI.

Combining MoCap and Gesture Recognition
MoCap - Motion Capture - for all its impressive abilities, has definite limitations in terms of sensory fidelity, the expense and bulk of the rig. Gesture control is cheap and captures every little movement, but easily overwhelmed. Is a hybrid system possible?
