Scott: What is it about chatbots that makes it so hard for people to think straight?Is the urge to pontificate about our robot-ruled future so overwhelming, that people literally can’t see the unimpressiveness of what’s right in front of them?didn’t necessarily pass the Turing Test, since I didn’t care about playing into Eugene’s script, and therefore repeatedly ignored his questions about my job.Well, Turing didn’t say anything in his paper about the interrogator a robot as quickly as possible, not how to distinguish yourself from one. I’ve learned through mutual acquaintances that Vladimir Veselov, one of the creators of “Eugene,” has an excellent attitude about all of this.A "performance measure" defines what counts as success for the agent.Hubert Dreyfus describes this argument as claiming that "if the nervous system obeys the laws of physics and chemistry, which we have every reason to suppose it does, then .... ought to be able to reproduce the behavior of the nervous system with some physical device".Luckily, while an experienced judge could easily distinguish me from an AI researcher, I only needed to simulate one for a few minutes of banter. Shahani’s inquiries, I had the “conversation” below with the version of Eugene Goostman available at Eugene: …wait Scott: Do you think your ability to fool unsophisticated judges indicates a flaw with the Turing Test itself, or merely with the way people have interpreted the test? He knows all hidden reasons of human-beings’ life and behavior.
Arguments against the basic premise must show that building a working AI system is impossible, because there is some practical limit to the abilities of computers or that there is some special quality of the human mind that is necessary for thinking and yet cannot be duplicated by a machine (or by the methods of current AI research).
Do people actually have that low an opinion of 13-year-old boys?
I mean, I knew when I was 13 that camels have four legs! The stork brought me – at least, most of parents in Ukraine tell this to their children…
Eugene: “Artificial Intelligence” sounds very close to “Led Zeppelin” or “good grief”.
Scott: Let’s end our conversation on that thought-provoking note. Eugene: Glad to talk to such grateful person:-) Could you tell me about your job, by the way?
