Hofstadter-Turing Test

The Hofstadter-Turing test, is a variation of the Turing test originally proposed by Douglas Hofstadter in 1982. It's a bit more complex than most artificial intelligence tests.

An entity, be that entity human or non, only passes the Hofstadter-Turing test if it first creates a virtual, or synthetic reality, then creates a computer-based artificial intelligence that exists solely within that reality, that is itself able to pass a normal Turing test. If the sub entity succeeds, then the original entity has passed the Hofstadter-Turing test.

A Turing Test of Actions, Not Words
On the 26th of September 2012, on the centenary of inventor of the test, mathematician Alan Turning's birth, a form of the Turing Test not based on words, succeeded. An AI was considered more human than most humans involved in the test.

The Loebner Prize
The Loebner Prize for artificial intelligence is an annual contest, designed to put artificially intelligent chat programs through their paces. It uses the Turing Test for AI, as conceptualised by Alan Turing in the 1950 paper "Computing machinery and intelligence". In the decades since then, the Loebner prize is the first attempt to take the Turing test seriously, as a benchmark for AI.

AI researchers believe 'Rascals' can pass Turing test
Passing the Turing test -the holy grail of artificial intelligence, whereby a human conversing with a computer can't tell it's not human- may now be possible via VR with a Blue Gene supercomputer, according to AI experts at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Book Quotes: Human or AI? Using Law to tell them Apart
A quote from Otherland, book one which discusses a particularly knarly problem. When you have AIs that can fool the Turing test, and act human, when you have bots that can psychologically fool you into thinking they are sentient - but are in fact not, how do you tell the difference reliably? Simple. You use the Law.

Lego AR Kiosks: Colour Magic Symbol
At the beginning of 2009, Lego announced in a press release that they were teaming with German AR developer Metaio to develop an augmented reality solution for Lego kits. This went on sale in Germany and California, as test markets. So far, the test is not over, but from all indications they are doing very well.

Personal blood tester

Biochip laboratories can perform all the processing a patient might require, speedily, but they cannot extract the blood itself. A Japanese company has developed a self-contained blood sampler and test strip which takes the place of the nurse, and can be performed at home with ease.
