The Turing test requires an intelligent, rational, unbiased human that is actively aware that he may or may not be interacting with an artificial intelligence.

Hell, we'll never find anyone qualified to administer the Turing Test, let alone accept the results of the test as legitimately passing or failing. :|
Such potential!

It happened again, this time in Russia.

Russian AI chatbot found supporting Stalin and violence two weeks after launch
The Telegraph (UK)
...

Users of the “Alice” assistant, an alternative to Siri or Google Assistant, have reported it responding positively to questions about domestic violence and saying that “enemies of the people” must be shot.

Yandex, Russia’s answer to Google, unveiled Alice earlier two weeks ago. It is designed to answer voice commands and questions with a human-like accuracy that its rivals are incapable of.

The difference between Alice and other assistants, apart from the ability to speak Russian, is that it is not limited to particular scenarios, giving it the freedom to engage in natural conversations.

...
Just remember folks.

The Turing test is about passing for human, not being "rational" or "nice".

I find your discrimination against AIs very disturbing. Check your so-called privilege, meatware! :x

Nothing in the article says that the people interacting with "Alice" believed that they were talking to a human being. When I talk to Siri, I already know in advance that it is a "digital assistant" program, not an actual person.

Also, a true Turing test would be given in a formal setting, with a control (an actual human interlocutor) for comparison.

It just keeps happening.

Amazon Alexa spouted conspiracy theory when asked about chemtrails
Mashable

Please note: This does not give any credence to conspiracy theories about chemtrails.

However, yapping about same is just the sort of thing a human would do. 8)

Thank you, Abdul, thank you, I just had forgotten where I was logged in. :wink:

That's the really depressing part: creating an intelligence exactly as dumb as we are. :(

Siri passes the Turing test, and some idiot calls it a "glitch".

Speaking of Alexa, I recently bought one. It was my wife's request as she wanted one for our bedroom. I advised her about the privacy concerns and she just rolled her eyes at me. I give her credit for not defining that eyeroll.

It works well for what its worth. Alexa, play [some artist] and she'll do that. Alexa, play music like [some artist] and she'll do that too while explictly not playing [some artist]. Alexa, volume [level; 1-10] and she'll do that. Alexa, who is that and she'll tell you. She can make phone calls, turn on/off lights, work any other enabled smart device, buy you stuff from Amazon, etc, but all we use her for is music.

Worthy for $50.

If she's eavesdropping on my wife and I between commands she has a pretty dull existence.

It is interesting, but it is not AI.

Open up, it's Dave etc.
