The Personal Turing Test - an Addendum, November 21st, 2005

In an earlier paper we proposed a variant on Alan Turing's Imitation Game. For the new Impersonation Game a machine must adopt the persona of a human individual and convince the judge either that it 'is' that person, or at least create sufficient uncertainty that the judge says 'I don't know'.

We now propose a control experiment - humans impersonating humans - to determine how many of the proposed 100 Impersonation Games must be won to pass the Personal Turing Test.

We also announce a new, funded project called Pasion to further social presence research, which may help to lead to techniques of passing the Personal Turing Test.
