Eugene Goostman was able to fool eminent researchers into believing that it was just a 13 year old boy. Now you must be thinking, “What’s the Big Deal in this?” Well, for a start, Eugene is not a person, rather it is a supercomputer designed and created by the Russians. This is the first computer that actually cracked the Turing test. The Turing test was designed by Alan Turing for understanding the level of artificial intelligence. This test determines if a computer is “smart” enough to exhibit human like cognitive abilities. Up till now no computer has been able to crack it.
The test requires volunteers or researchers to ask questions to the computer and the answers are assessed in 5 minutes. If the researchers are unable to determine the source of the answers, then the system wins. This is exactly what happened in the case of Eugene, where 33% of the researchers failed to identify Eugene as a computer. As a shocking outcome, this 33% actually identified Eugene as a 13 year old boy. Now this is an achievement that is truly groundbreaking and has the potential to redefine our future. The test is really difficult because the test parameters are really stringent and this particular test for Eugene had independent auditors for curating.
The software was created by Vladimir Veselov and Eugene Demchenko in Saint Petersburg, Russia. This is definitely the next step in the evolution of the personal computer. Some even believe that such high intelligence levels could actually assist humans in solving cybercrime cases as the software would be able to perceive things in a different manner and with endless possibilities, just like a human. It won’t just work on the basis of predefined rules anymore. Maybe Jarvis is a possibility after all!
