Researchers at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute believe they have a fairly intelligent AI, a successful avatar of the version of “Turing Test” – convince a man that he is the man when entertaining in a virtual environment such as Second Life. The bot is called “Rascals”, which means, Advanced Synthetic Rensselaer Architecture for Living Systems. Of course, this first implementation requires a certain world-class juice, and the team with the IBM Blue Gene, the fastest supercomputer in the world, for the administration of KI in real time. The idea of Amnesty International about themselves and the other is to a degree of student guinea pigs, and they can even formulate thoughts on the faith of others and of their faith in the faith of others. Trippy, no? Rascals are in the pilot phase in October 2008.
"Rascals" AI could pass Turing test, with a little help from Blue Gene
