Russian Computer Program Passes the “Turing Test”

In the 1950s, computer science innovator Alan Turing created a test based on his question and answer game “Can Machines Think?” The Turing Test is an experiment that investigates a computer’s ability to demonstrate intelligent behavior similar to that of a human. A team of Russian developers developed the first program to pass the Turing Test during this year’s event held at the Royal Society in London.
