trying to fool us, store window dummies, into believing in intelligence...

second-rate computer

A "super computer" has duped humans into thinking it was a 13-year-old boy to become the first machine to pass the "iconic" Turing Test, experts say.

Five machines were tested at the Royal Society in central London to see if they could fool people into thinking they were humans during text-based conversations.

The test was devised in 1950 by computer science pioneer and World War II code breaker Alan Turing, who said that if a machine was indistinguishable from a human, then it was "thinking".

No computer had ever previously passed the Turing Test, which requires 30 per cent of human interrogators to be duped during a series of five-minute keyboard conversations, organisers from the University of Reading said.

But "Eugene Goostman", a computer program developed to simulate a 13-year-old boy, managed to convince 33 per cent of the judges that it was human, the university said.

Professor Kevin Warwick, from the University of Reading, said: "In the field of artificial intelligence there is no more iconic and controversial milestone than the Turing Test.

"It is fitting that such an important landmark has been reached at the Royal Society in London, the home of British science and the scene of many great advances in human understanding over the centuries. This milestone will go down in history as one of the most exciting."

I believe that our own Tony is an old 386 computer inside a store window dummy trying to fool us that its intelligence is above that of a potty-trained four year old. As well, the Abbottgootsman386 has many glitches, like saying one thing one day and telling the opposite the next, depending on its audience. The Abbottgootsman believes that this is a sign of intelligence, as only idiots do not change their minds, but the store dummy inspection headquarters think that dummy changing minds like red underpants is a sign of derangement in the budgie module.

 

The geezer even walks like a badly balanced dummy that has been riding a wooden horse for too long. One of the worrying part in the Abbottgootsman386, is the religious belief sub-board that tells it to be humble and generous but contrarily acts as if a god with orange sadistic lifeboats.

Unlike rats, Tony does not have any regrets. He just find a new lie to explain his bad decisions...

----------------------------

Rats experience regret when their actions make them miss out on better food options, a study has found.

It is the first time regret has been identified in mammals other than humans.

Researchers created situations where rats had to choose whether to wait a set amount of time for a food reward, or move onto another one.

Those that moved on and found the next offering was even worse showed regretful behaviour.

The study was conducted by neuroscientists based at the University of Minnesota, US; their findings are reported in Nature Neuroscience.

Artificial intelligence will never be a match against idiots...

short-term political opportunism...

 

He said the prime minister, Tony Abbott, had been motivated by short-term political opportunism, when in opposition, on the issue of carbon pricing – and that Labor had left a policy vacuum that allowed an old-fashioned scare campaign take root among voters.

Hewson said all parties should now come back to the table and work through sensible policy responses to global warming. He thought that elements of the Coalition’s direct action policy could work, but now was the time to have a “mature debate” about which policies were best to mitigate the risks.

As an economist, he said he was a long-time advocate of the market mechanism of carbon pricing.

Hewson was attending a Climate Institute function in Canberra. The institute’s chief executive, John Connor, said parliament should stick with the status quo. “The carbon laws are working. They are working to reduce pollution in a growing economy,” Connor said.

------------------------------

Hewson, a conservative, is far cleverer than the present Turd in the position of PM. But as he blasts Abbott for being a short-term political opportunist — possible the most opportunistic loony ever in a position of power and who would not be there had the turdograh and its derivative media not supported him, Hewson also blasts Labor for leaving a policy vacuum — which in political parlance means that Labor had good policies but failed to hold on to power due to relentless attack from the tobacco supporter, the said turdographic merde-och press...
