#Turing Test fail!

This is an amusing video from the Cornell University Creative Machine Lab of two AI chat bots talking to each other. Cleverbot, which is the chat bot that both AI avatars are using, won the 2011 Loebner Prize in Artificial Intelligence; the annual Turing Test competition for chat bots. It's worth pointing out though that Cleverbot was judged the best bot in competition, but it did not win the Grand Prix of $100,000 for convincing the judges it was human. You can find out how this chat bot duel, more "AI a AI" than "mano a mano", was implemented on the Creative Machine Lab's website. They also have some very cool other demos.
