Third Turing Test in Russian

    Hello! The Ashmanov Neural Networks and Nanosemantics companies invite everyone to take part in the 3rd All-Russian Turing Test in 2019, which we will organize.


    We previously held this competition in 2015 and 2016 together with the Skolkovo Foundation and Microsoft.
    In 2019, the Turing Test will be held at the largest conference on artificial intelligence .
    Under the cut - the dates, details of the conduct and a link to the registration of participants.

    Turing test in 2015 and 2016

    The Turing test in Russian was conducted twice: in 2015 it was conducted Nanosemantics Laboratory together with the Skolkovo Foundation at the Startup Village conference . The winner was the robot “Sonya Guseva” - 47% of judges accepted her as a person. The creators are the “Inobot” team, headed by Ivan Golubev. Now he is a project manager at Just AI .
    In 2016, we tested Turing with Microsoft and Skolkovo. The winner was Ivan Shumilov. Where and what Ivan is doing now - we do not know, we hope, he is still working for the benefit of robots.

    What is a Turing Test?

    Recall that the test is named after the English mathematician Alan Turing : the test offers a way to assess how well a robot can adequately conduct a dialogue with a person. A test is considered passed if an independent expert in the process of anonymous parallel communication with a robot or a person cannot determine who is who.

    Competition rules in 2019

    The new Turing Test will be different from what we did before. We decided to change the rules in the direction of a less scientific, but more fun competition.

    After registering for the contest, participants receive anonymous login passwords with which they connect their chat bots to a single API that will provide “Nanosemantics” three weeks before the event. Each participant can submit up to 3 bots to the competition. Each chat bot must have its own uniqueness and individuality (for example, the personality “Blonde Penny”, “Nerdy Sheldon”, “Ilon Musk”, “Vladimir Zhirinovsky”).

    For each unique bot will be provided with a human volunteer pair. The task of this representative of the human race is to play a role with the same individuality, communicating with interlocutors. That is, people will try to go through Turing Antitest, pretending to be a robot.

    Chats with all bots and humanoids will be available to any interlocutor during the conference on February 14-16, 2019 through Telegrams. Everyone can be an expert, talk to several interlocutors and try to guess who he is talking to by asking 6 questions. The expert will see only the name of the interlocutor, who may be either a bot or a person.

    The bot that the maximum number of independent experts recognized as a person will be recognized as the best. Prizes will be awarded to 3 teams with chat bots, 3 volunteers for the best role of the bot, and 3 experts with the best guessing results.

    Such a Turing Test, of course, is close to a gross violation of California law (we wrote about this law earlier ), but we are not in California, and the chat bots of participants will not try to sell anything to conference visitors. Joke.

    We personally ( “Nanosemantics” ) do not participate in the competition; we provide a platform and several basic test bots.
