Turing Test Passed

tpstigers Minimum Human Requirements (432 comments)

requires that a computer dupes 30 per cent of human interrogators in five-minute text conversations

Are there any requirements that must be met by the 'human interrogators'? What if they were all morons?

Favorite Star Wars Movie?

tpstigers The Star Wars Boilerplate (457 comments)

Every Star Wars film contains the same three basic elements: 1) The Opening Gambit, 2) The Chase Scene, and 3) The Fight Scene. In The Empire Strikes Back, this recipe is represented by: 1) Ice planet Hoth, 2) The asteroid belt, and 3) Luke vs. Darth (wherein Luke loses a hand). Easily the best examples of the three repeating elements.

Also, please note that there is a difference between 'education' and 'educational'.
