Going Under Cover: Passing as Human
This chapter discusses strategies for building a computer program to pose as a human for the Turing test, including the use of humor to distract the human judge from the task of evaluating the conversation. Experiences of computer programs from the Loebner Prize competitions are analyzed to give a “top 10” list of mistakes that computers make when trying to appear human.
