You may have also heard that this was a complete sham, and the academic equivalent of urinating directly on Turing's grave. Turing imagined a benchmark that would answer the question, "Can machines think," with a resounding yes, demonstrating some level of human-like cognition. Instead, the researchers who built the winning program, "Eugene Goostman," engaged in outright trickery. Like every chatbot before it, Eugene evaded questions, rather than processing their content and returning a truly relevant answer. And it used possibly the dirtiest trick of all. In a two-part deception, Eugene's broken English could be explained away by not being a native speaker, and its general stupidity could be justified by its being a kid (no offense, 13-year-olds). Instead of passing the Turing Test, the researchers gamed it. They aren't the first—Cleverbot was considered by some to have passed in 2011—but as of right now, they're the most famous.
