The Turing Hub as a Standard for Turing Test Interfaces
- Robby GarnerAffiliated withKennesaw State University
A Turing Test like the Loebner Prize Contest draws on existing computer programs as participants. Though some entries are written just for the contest, there has been no standard interface for allowing the judges to interact with the programs. While Dr. Loebner has created his own standard more recently, there are many Web-based programs that are not easily adapted to his standard. The interface problem is indicative of the transition being made everywhere from older, console based, mainframe-like software with simple interfaces, to the new Web-based applications which require a Web browser and a graphical user interface to interact with. The Turing Hub interface attempts to provide a uniformity and facilitation of this testing interface.
