The Turing test has been passed by a robot named Eugene. So, asks Alex Hern, is it time to pledge fealty to the machines?
I find this story interesting. While we talk a lot about content localization and translation, as well as about content in and of itself, this is interesting to see how content is being used for artificial intelligence. Part-way through reading the transcript, I think I might have picked up that this was not a human. I’ve spoken/written with enough people whose written language skills weren’t good to know. Still, it’s a pretty close attempt and worth noting.
It makes me wonder if in time, technical communicators will be responsible for writing the content for artificial intelligence. Maybe. Time will tell, so it’s important to take note of this milestone.
