Call for Turing100 ParticipantsWednesday 16 May, 2012
The Turing Test project is helping raise awareness of cyber crime using artificial conversation systems to increase the detection rate for online deception and prevent the risk of Internet grooming. The famous Turing Test, developed by mathematician Alan Turing in 1950, investigated whether people could detect if they were talking to machines or humans.
All you need is access to a computer and the Internet to judge the conversation ability of entities on special Turing100 websites.
