Massachusetts [United States], September 24 (ANI): Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a newer version of the 1950 Turing Test to differentiate the machine from the humans.
Called the Minimal Turing Test, it uses a set of words to test a machine's ability to mimic human behaviour. The researchers aimed at finding that one word to convince a human you weren't a robot.
As Cnet reported, the researchers asked one thousand participants to suggest words related to concepts which they think an artificial intelligence might have difficulty understanding, including words such as 'love', and 'soul.'
After zeroing in on the most nominated word from each category, the researchers discovered that the word most likely to convince another human being that you're not a robot is "poop".
The experiment did not involve any AI and was aimed solely at understanding a human's understanding of fellow human being. (ANI)
