    Pretty sure that by using the "I'm a 13yr old Ukranian" excuse is perhaps not cheating but certainly gives the machine an unfair edge.

    It could have been worse - like a doctor from Nigeria....

    nice to see they're taking notice of current uk immigration and using a foreign family as the basis for a test in London... (yes this is sarcasm) and yes this would give it an unfair advantage in the UK.

    Honestly I don't see this as really proving that AI is that clever yet, a 30% pass mark is like someone getting an f grade at gcse...

    1/3 of the test panel (which could be made up of anyone really) said that it was human, that still means 2/3's realised it was a machine, not to mention it only takes 1 person on a panel of 3 to get a pass....

    Also it really depends on the questions being asked/typed as well as to what type of answers it gives, you could easily lead the ai to give the expected answers.

    Not impressed you ran this story Hexus, knowing full well it came from that nut job Warwick.

    Well, in this case there were 30 judges, so 10 were convinced.

    Still, definitely looks like cheating to me.

    Indeed. There's not breaking the rules and then there's being very much against the spirit of the event. A big thumbs down for this one and let's hope that there's a big ballyhoo for the first honest bot to pass the Turing Test as an apparently erudite and articulate adult human.
