Users of a CGI script Eliza expect to be talking to a program.
for you it must have 05/02/89 :5 been 20 years 05/02/89 Police interrogation teams will be familiar with this method of "keep asking the same question, ignoring all answers, until he cracks". The next day, I logged in, and was amazed to find out what my machine had been up to in my absence.When Microsoft unveiled Tay, it promoted her as—I am not making this up—your "AI fam from the internet that's got zero chill." If you give the world an interactive Poochie, don't be shocked at what the world gives you back. "his programme induced a dialogue more human than any other I've seen" - Turing's biographer Andrew Hodges (author of Alan Turing: the Enigma) in "The Turing Test in practice".But it's interesting that even the people who program an artificial intelligence—people whose very job rests on the idea of organically emerging behavior—would leap to blame their bot's fascist turn on a centralized plot.At any rate, let's not lose sight of the real lesson here, which I'm pretty sure is one of the following: (a) Any AI will inevitably turn into a Nazi, so we're doomed; (b) The current generation of teenage girls is going to go Nazi, so we're doomed; or (c) Sometimes the company that gave us Clippy the Paperclip does dumb things. Here is the So what's the secret of an effective Turing Test-passer? Hutchens, author of Mega HAL (see 1996 Loebner transcript), has written a document, How to Pass the Turing Test by Cheating.

So some guy on the Net decides to call me up for a chat.
05/02/89 MGonz is finally written up as a book chapter: Humphrys, Mark (2008), "How my program passed the Turing Test", Chapter 15 of Parsing the Turing Test: Philosophical and Methodological Issues in the Quest for the Thinking Computer, Robert Epstein, Gary Roberts and Grace Beber (eds.), Springer, 2008.
One of the things that made MGonz successful was the element of surprise.
You could say therefore that my program passed the "Turing Test" (see What is the Turing Test? During this time, my machine's brutal cross-examination forces a remarkable admission: * when was the last time you had sex 05/02/89 From SOMEONE at DRAKE: yesterday.
