How could emotional intelligence be implemented?

Architectures for recognizing and generating emotion are typically somewhat complex and don't generally have short descriptions, so it's probably better to reference the literature rather than give a ...

Is the Turing Test, or any of its variants, a reliable test of artificial intelligence?

The rhetorical point of the Turing Test is that it places the 'test' for 'humanity' in observable outcomes, instead of in internal components. If you would behave the same in interacting with an AI as ...

Is the Turing Test, or any of its variants, a reliable test of artificial intelligence?

The problem of the Turing Test is that it tests the machines ability to resemble humans. Not necessarily every form of AI has to resemble humans. This makes the Turing Test less reliable. However, it ...

What are the specific requirements of the Turing test?

The "Turing Test" is generally taken to mean an updated version of the Imitation Game Alan Turing proposed in his 1951 paper of the same name. An early version had a human (male or female) and a ...

Are there any AI that have passed the MIST test so far?

Yes, although how useful this AI can be is another question entirely. mpgac is a "minimally intelligent AGI" trained on the GAC-80K corpus of MIST questions. As a result, it should be able to "...

What was the first machine that was able to carry on a conversation?

In 1986, the first PC therapist program was written by Joseph Weintraub. This program won the first Loebner Prize in 1991, and then again in 1992, 1993 and 1995. In 1981 or 1982, Jabberwacky was ...

I like your choice of "induce" instead of "produce," because the delusions came from the users. This means the answer has to do mostly with human psychology; people come equipped with lots of mental ...
