Today we bring you two submissions on reports of Eugene passing the Turing Test:

Eugene passed the turing test.

Yet another notch in the belt for bad science reporting.

The singularity is here! jk, lol! While what has happened is an amazing accomplishment and I'm stoked... It doesn't count as a complete passing of the Turing test in my book. This program was written to pass the test, not as a general purpose 'thinking' machine that can pass it. Again, hats off to these guys, but media outlets reporting it as true AI (conjuring images of Data, Rommy, Hal, Sonny, etc.) doesn't seem right.

Turing Test Success

The 65 year-old iconic Turing Test was passed for the very first time by supercomputer Eugene Goostman during Turing Test 2014 held at the renowned Royal Society in London on Saturday.

'Eugene', a computer programme that simulates a 13 year old boy, was developed in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The development team includes Eugene's creator Vladimir Veselov, who was born in Russia and now lives in the United States, and Ukrainian born Eugene Demchenko who now lives in Russia.
