Loebner Prize

The Loebner prize was created in 1990 by American inventor Hugh Loebner. Hosted by various institutions over the years, the prize is essentially an annual turing test competition designed to find a chatbot that can fool the judges into thinking they are conversing remotely with a sentient mind.

Loebner has put up 100,000 US dollars of his own money as a prize to the first bot that achieves this task. When it is achieved, the contest will end.

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.
