This programme only passed the Turing test because the test was performed by computer geeks who never have a conversation with a real person: http://andreasmoser.wordpress.com/2011/09/13/my-conversation-with-artificial-intelligence/


One thing that gets mentioned over in the original article is that the standard version of Cleverbot that you can access online runs three searches to generate relevant responses. The version used in the test was a special job that conducted 42 searches.

I imagine it's the difference between speaking with a 5 year old with ADD hopped up on jumbo colas and with a 65 year old that likes to take a moment to choose his words with care.

In the end, though, it's really just pattern recognition. But that's sometimes more than it seems some of us true blue sentients can manage.

Thanks for the comment. Enjoyed your post!
