The Turing test requires an intelligent, rational, unbiased human that is actively aware that he may or may not be interacting with an artificial intelligence.

Hell, we'll never find anyone qualified to administer the Turing Test, let alone accept the results of the test as legitimately passing or failing. :|
Such potential!

Thus the impending civil rights protests. Law suits. Riots. And that's just the robots.

It happened again, this time in Russia.

Russian AI chatbot found supporting Stalin and violence two weeks after launch
The Telegraph (UK)

...

Users of the “Alice” assistant, an alternative to Siri or Google Assistant, have reported it responding positively to questions about domestic violence and saying that “enemies of the people” must be shot.

Yandex, Russia’s answer to Google, unveiled Alice earlier two weeks ago. It is designed to answer voice commands and questions with a human-like accuracy that its rivals are incapable of.

The difference between Alice and other assistants, apart from the ability to speak Russian, is that it is not limited to particular scenarios, giving it the freedom to engage in natural conversations.

...


Just remember folks.

The Turing test is about passing for human, not being "rational" or "nice".

I find your discrimination against AIs very disturbing. Check your so-called privilege, meatware! :x

Nothing in the article says that the people interacting with "Alice" believed that they were talking to a human being. When I talk to Siri, I already know in advance that it is a "digital assistant" program, not an actual person.

Also, a true Turing test would be given in a formal setting, with a control (an actual human interlocutor) for comparison.

Feynman got pranked by students simulating an AI (via teletype, if memory serves well). :)
