According to a test conducted at the Royal Society in London, a computer was able to pass the Turing test and convince humans that it was really a 13 year-old boy. (I assume it came home from school, grunted a couple of times, ate a bag of chips, rolled its eyes, and then disappeared into the bathroom for an hour.)

+ Buzzfeed: No, a computer did not just pass the Turing Test (and it’s a bad test for artificial intelligence anyway…)

+ Computers are getting better than humans when it comes to facial recognition. (Computers recognize you, talk to you, empathize with you, help solve your problems, and anticipate your needs. What could be less human than that?)
