The Turing Test is a test of the believability of AI. Its simple in concept: Two computers are in a room, one is remotely connected to a human, the other is remotely connected to a computer running an artificial intelligence.

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.
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.
Passing the Turing test -the holy grail of artificial intelligence, whereby a human conversing with a computer can't tell it's not human- may now be possible via VR with a Blue Gene supercomputer, according to AI experts at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
A quote from Otherland, book one which discusses a particularly knarly problem. When you have AIs that can fool the Turing test, and act human, when you have bots that can psychologically fool you into thinking they are sentient - but are in fact not, how do you tell the difference reliably? Simple. You use the Law.
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.
Industry news, originally posted 14-11-2004. The world?s first hippocampus prosthesis has passed the first stages of live testing.
Even the most vigorous, modern crash test simulation, with all known variables accounted for, can be wrong. Sometimes these differences are unavoidable with the computational power limitations of the simulation computers, sometimes its another, unforeseen cause.
Biochip laboratories can perform all the processing a patient might require, speedily, but they cannot extract the blood itself. A Japanese company has developed a self-contained blood sampler and test strip which takes the place of the nurse, and can be performed at home with ease.
Researchers at The University of Manchester have recruited volunteers with a variety of driving phobias to test whether virtual reality can be used alongside conventional psychological therapies to help tackle their fears. Impressively they are including full immersion VR in the trials.
