"How I missed her, how I missed her
How I missed my Clementine.”
A Computer Recently Passed The Turing Test. This Is A Really Big Deal, But Not For The Reason You Think.
By Timothy Tuttle, Founder & CEO of Expect Labs
For centuries, the four-minute mile was the height of athletic achievement. Roger Bannister turned that apex on its head in 1954 when he completed the mile in three minutes and 59.4 seconds. Similarly, the Turing Test has been the high-water mark in the artificial intelligence community for the past six decades. The latest development occurred on June 8th, when a chatbot disguised as a 13-year-old Ukrainian teen passed the test. 33% of judges were shocked to learn that this quirky guy named Eugene Goostman had a heart not made of gold, but computer code.
Another artificially intelligent program has entered the scene, leaving many computer scientists scratching their heads about its implications. Some were hung up on the technicalities of Goostman’s achievements, claiming that the event was too calculated to merit a passing grade. This analysis misses the mark. Today’s systems are intelligent, intricate, and overflowing with more advanced computing power than ever before. As a result, we now need to decide if Turing’s age-old assessment is still a useful barometer of a machine’s intelligence.

Israelis design artificial cells that make things
Cell network mimics protein synthesis and communication of real cells, could one day be used to make productsAugust 19, 2014, 3:40 pm
Israeli scientists have created an artificial network of cells that act like the real thing, even performing life’s most basic process — protein synthesis.
The network is made up of cell-like compartments etched onto a biochip and connected by hair-like tubes. Within each pseudo-cell, the scientists put a synthetic cell genome and the protein-translating machinery of E. coli bacteria minus its DNA. They then sat back and watched it manufacture proteins.
Recently published in the journal Science, the findings could deepen understanding of basic biological processes and lead to practical applications, like synthesizing proteins for a wide variety of products from fuel to medications, the scientists say.
“The two-gene pattern we designed is a simple example of a cell network, but after proving the concept, we can now move forward to more complicated gene networks,” said Eyal Karzbrun, a materials and interfaces doctoral student at the Weizmann Institute of Science. “One goal is to eventually design DNA content similar to a real genome that can be placed in the compartments.”Read more: Israelis design artificial cells that make things | The Times of Israel http://www.timesofisrael.com/israelis-design-artificial-cells-that-make-things/#ixzz3AqfiPTZB
