I’m delighted to say that I’ll be attending the Loebner Prize in Bletchley Park (home of WWII cryptographic efforts) as a judge. The prize is based on the famous ‘Imitation Game’ suggested by Alan Turing as an objective test of machine intelligence. The idea is that a computer program communicates with human judges via a text interface. The job of the program is to make its responses difficult to distinguish from those of a human. I’ll let you know how I get on.
