Shall. We. Play. A. Game?

Has the Turing Test been passed? This should start some debate in AI and academic circles.

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.
