The first formal instantiation of a Turing Test for machine intelligence is a Loebner Prize and has been organized since 1991.
In a typical setup, there are three areas: the computer area with typically 3-5 computers, each running a stand-alone version (i.e.
However, such a bot is not “your own”, though there are certain degrees of configuration that help to personalise your bot.
This test determines how well a chatbot is capable of appearing like a real person by giving responses indistinguishable from a human’s response. Since the steep rise of available hardware and software platforms lately, nowadays chatbots are available everywhere. Nevertheless, first of all you have to choose between a stand-alone chatbot application, and a web-based chatbot. Whether you choose a fully stand-alone “virtual companion”, or take on the challenge of creating your own web-based chatbot, there are several options available to you, the prospective new botmaster, for creating a new chatbot.The 19th annual edition of ‘The First Turing Test’, called Loebner Prize Contest, was held in 2009 in Brighton, UK.The following video report explains how the Turing Test is organized in practice.As you can see in our directory tab, there are hundreds of online chatbots available in the public domain, although we believe hundreds of thousands have been created by enthusiastic artificial intelligence amateurs on platforms such as Pandorabots, My Cyber Twin or Personality Forge AI. To create a web-based bot, you can choose several companies such as Personality Forge AI, My Cyber Twin or Pandorabots.Most of these chatbots give similar responses, the default response, and it appears to take a long time and patience to train a chatbot in another field of expertise and not all amateur developers are willing to spend these vast amounts of time. Let’s pick Pandorabots as an example, and get started.The same counts for their graphic design, sometimes it feels like a cartoonish character drawn by a child, and on the other hand there are photo-realistic 3D animated characters available, which are hard to distinguish from humans. If you have a look at our chatbot gallery, you will immediately notice the difference. Most AIML interpreters are offered under a free or open source license. In general, the web-based chatbot has the advantage for you to have control over behavior, personality, and (free) hosting, though there are “premium” options available and personalization of content.The term Chatbot is closely related to chat bot and chatterbot. Therefore, many “Alicebot clones” populate the internet, having been created based upon the original implementation of A. However, web based bots are not as easy to set up as a stand-alone chatbot application.In order for you to be able to alter the responses your chatbot give to any given input, you need to have at least a basic understanding of how AIML works.If you would like to connect with many other people who did this before, please check our AI Zone forum.
