Ex_Machina and the Turing test

A new teaser clip from the film Ex_Machina has been released, in which the ‘Turing Test’ is discussed.

In July this year, a computer passed the Turing Test for the first time. The computer program (written by a Russian based team) by the name of ‘Eugene Goostman‘ convinced one third of the judges that they were talking to a 13-year-old-boy from Odessa in Ukraine.

You can read more about the Turing test here, and the next clip is a great trailer for the film The Imitation Game, about Alan Turing and his work in cracking the Enigma code during World War II:
