This test determines how well a chatbot is capable of appearing like a real person by giving responses indistinguishable from a human’s response.
The first formal instantiation of a Turing Test for machine intelligence is a Loebner Prize and has been organized since 1991.
Chatbot can run on local computers and phones, though most of the time it is accessed through the internet. It constitutes a web page with a chatbot embedded in it, and a text form is the sole interface between the user (you) and the chatbot.
In general, the stand-alone chatbot has the advantage that it is simple to install and use, has an engaging graphical interface and an audio component including speech recognition.
For example ancient chatbot Eliza is now also available on i Phone, while famous chatbot A. It usually also has a graphical component built in, as well, in the form of an avatar (often female) that enhances interaction, thus improving user’s experience.
Chatbot is typically perceived as engaging software entity which humans can talk to. It appears everywhere, from old ancient HTML pages to modern advanced social networking websites, and from standard computers to fashionable smart mobile devices. Their language (Natural Language Processing, NLP) skills vary from extremely poor to very clever intelligent, helpful and funny. was written within the frame of Artificial Intelligence Markup Language (AIML), an open standard for creating any kind of chatbot, also developed by Wallace. Any “upgrades” or improvements to the interface are solely the option and responsibility of the botmaster.
The same counts for their graphic design, sometimes it feels like a cartoonish character drawn by a child, and on the other hand there are photo-realistic 3D animated characters available, which are hard to distinguish from humans. If you have a look at our chatbot gallery, you will immediately notice the difference. Most AIML interpreters are offered under a free or open source license. In general, the web-based chatbot has the advantage for you to have control over behavior, personality, and (free) hosting, though there are “premium” options available and personalization of content.
