Well, someone’s finally done it. Phys reports researchers at the University of Texas have created AI capable of passing a Turing test – fooling a human into believing they are interacting with another human. The computer scientists built a couple of Unreal Tournament 3 bots so lifelike that judges tagged both as human players 52% of the time – while actual human players usually manage about 42%. You know what that means, right? The singularity is coming. May our new machine overlords enjoy our feeble monkey efforts at fragging.

In his first GDC interview, Peter Molyneux has said that Lionhead is on the verge of announcing the next big thing in AI.
“In the six years since Black & White they have been working improving the great things that underpinned that game, and now they are getting pretty close to something that is very significant,” he said. “It’s a very big thing. A new franchise and as close to something revolutionary as I have ever seen. And we’re close to announcing it.”
Expect to see a slew of quotes from Molyneux over the next few days. He’s showing Fable 2 this week, with rumours suggesting the multiplayer aspects of the games are going to be detailed.
