I'm interested this. A Turing Test, to quote Wikipedia, "a test of a machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behavior." Which is interesting is that, once the machine can exhibit enough intelligent behavior--30% are fooled--then that machine can be considered "intelligent." Which goes on to some pretty intriguing questions about person hood and intelligence.

But that is not the objective of this. Which is why this isn't in either the technology or philosophy forums. I want to conduct an actual Turing test. I will need a pool of people to talk to either a person or a chatterbox, which will be called "contestants." And I will need people to be the "confederates" or people that need to be discerned from the chatterboxes.

The actual test will be conducted via PMs, though the results of the Turing test will be posted in the forums. Each confederate will have one line of conversation, and each chatterbox will have one line of conversation. Each contestant will only have one, too. At the end of a two-hour period, each contestant will decide whether he or she was talking to a chatterbox or a contestant. The test will be moderated by me.

I will be happy to accept questions, comments, or recommendations.

*IMPORTANT NOTE* The test will probably not be today, but next Saturday. I have school and, of course, homework to consider. And you will need to friend me, because I do not accept messages from non-friends.

Contestants:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

Confederates:
1.
2.
3.

Chatterboxes I will be using:

I could actually do it today if everybody signs up quickly enough. I will definitely be off at 9:00, so it needs to be started by 7.

Yeah, I'm done with mine too. I think it would have been more fun to be a confederate.

I think so, too. Especially with your correspondent.

When will you post the results?

After everybody has completed their conversation. Oberherr needs to wait until the weekend, so it's going to be a long wait. : (
