A couple of things lately have me thinking about AI's--the recent public statements by Wozniak and Hawkings, i've been watching the show Extant which has a plot line concerning soldier AIs.
As for the Turing test, i think most Social Media sites have considerably lowered the standard, some people are so predictable one might as well be talking to a machine.
Meanwhile there's CleverBot, programmed to learn from its conversations and apparently it has developed sarcasm, snark. It also goes on offensive and/or changes the subject when it's cornered...just like many humans do. Check it out at www.cleverbot.com
