"Eugene" Passes Turing Test

In 1950, British mathematician and computer theorist Alan Turing predicted that by 2000, a computer could be programmed so that after 5 minutes of questioning, the average interrogator would not have more than a 70% chance of telling whether he was talking to a machine or another person. The ability of a machine to carry on a conversation indistinguishable from that of a human, he contended, is the true measure of artificial intelligence. And while he was a little off on the timing, a computer program has finally passed the Turing test. Last Saturday, a program called Eugene Goostman convinced 33% of the judges at the Royal Society in London that it was human. More...

Where do we go from here! Legalized Marriages to a "chatbot." At a minimum we have a new word now, Chatbot.

Such experiments can only prove that machines/computers can be programed very well. Computers are electronic automatons, they can not really think. THINKING implies being a personality. These computer specialists must be extremely naive if they do believe that they can ever create real artificial intelligence, or, in the other words, ARTIFICIAL PERSONALITY. No computer software will ever develop self-awareness or sense of being a personality (except in SF stories and/or movies).

Experience is a collection of data (information). We respond to a situation base on our experience. Machines can produce a proper result base on the collection of data.

Since when is 33% a passing grade, and since when do we take for granted the definition of "average interrogator," and since when do we overlook the glaring fact that this essentially defines humanity as nothing but a mindless series of programmable drones with no significance?
