Alan Turing was afresh appear as the face of the new £50 note for his code breaking contributions in World War II and laying the foundations of computer science. However, Turing’s work still challenges and inspires many people alive today, abnormally those in robotics and bogus intelligence.

In 1950 he asked, “Can machines think?”, and came up with a test that advisers still turn to as a way of anticipation whether a computer could be advised truly able in the same way as humans. But, coming from an age where free robots were only just in their infancy, the Turing Test was only advised to assess bogus brains, not a complete bogus person.

Now that we have more astute attractive androids, we need a 21st-century adaptation of the test. My colleagues and I have advised a “Multimodal Turing Test” to judge a machine’s appearance, movement, voice and what we call embodied bogus intelligence (EAI). This is a admeasurement of how well bogus intelligence is chip with a automatic body in order to expresses a personality.

This means we can systematically analyze a humanoid robot to a living counterpart. In this way, we can ask the question: “Can we build robots that are perceptually duplicate from humans?”
