AI game bots pass ‘Turing test,’ fooling silly humans
100 years ago, a man named Alan Turing was born. He would go on to become a permanent fixture in the world of science, computers, and theoretical practices that are commonplace today. One of his most striking predictions was that there could potentially be an entity powered by computers that humans would mistake for being one of their own.
Turing‘s dream is exactly what was achieved at The University of Texas at Austin. Computer scientists there have won the “BotPrize” for being able to create an in-game bot that other players legitimately believed was a human player.
