Hidden Interlocutor Misidentification in Practical Turing Tests

  title={Hidden Interlocutor Misidentification in Practical Turing Tests},
  author={Huma Shah and K. Warwick},
  journal={Minds and Machines},
Based on insufficient evidence, and inadequate research, Floridi and his students report inaccuracies and draw false conclusions in their Minds and Machines evaluation, which this paper aims to clarify. Acting as invited judges, Floridi et al. participated in nine, of the ninety-six, Turing tests staged in the finals of the 18th Loebner Prize for Artificial Intelligence in October 2008. From the transcripts it appears that they used power over solidarity as an interrogation technique. As a… Expand
