 Humans Fooled by Computer Pretending to be Teen

Media reports indicate that a computer is the first machine to clear the famous 'Turing' test after it tricked humans to believe it was a 13-year-old boy.

According to the experts, Royal Society in central London tested "Eugene Goostman", a computer program to fool people through text-based conversations, where the program managed to convince 33 per cent of the judges, News.com.au reported.

Professor Kevin Warwick from the University of Reading said that this was the first time the iconic test, which was developed by World War II code breaker Alan Turing in 1950, had been passed and this was the most controversial milestone in the field of artificial intelligence.

The machine's creators Vladimir Veselov and Eugene Demchenko, said that the achievement was significant and they hope it would help boost interest in artificial intelligence.

The event took place on the 60th anniversary of the death of Turing.
