The Loebner Prize in Artificial Intelligence

The Loebner Prize in Artificial Intelligence is an annual Turing Test competition for chat bots. The Turing Test was devised by Alan Turing and is passed by a computer that cannot be distinguished in conversation from a person. So far no chat bot has won the Grand Prize of $100,000 and a gold medal, but each year a prize of $4,000 and a bronze medal is awarded to the best chat bot. 
   Cleverbot is considered one of the best chat bots which you can try out below.

  1. Not so Cleverbot:

    ME: Whats your name
    CB: My name is Cleverbot. Is your name Betty?
    ME: No, my name is Tim.
    CB: Yes you did! You are a liar.

    We have no reason to be scared of machines anytime soon...
