Submission + - Unreal Tournament to highlight AI breakthrough (wordpress.com)

00_NOP writes: "This coming week is to see AI researchers battle it out through the medium of Unreal Tournament and hopes are high that researchers at Imperial College in London have built a bot that is sufficiently human like that it will, in effect, pass the Turing Test and win a $7000 prize at the IEEE's Conference of Computational Intelligence and Games in Grenada, Spain.
Interestingly, the breakthrough, if proven, comes not from ever greater computational processing of the environment, but in discriminating between less and more important stimuli. In Alan Turing's centenary year one of the points he was ridiculed for in his lifetime — that machines could match human behaviour and 'thought' may be on the point of decisive vindication."
