I wish people would just to a basic Google search
No, or one of us is misunderstanding , the "turing test" is done, by humans,..but also there are various versions. I guess, I should just start a separate/new topic, but any way, in a nut shell, all though a human or several are involved,by bw123 » If I understand things correctly, the "turing test" is given to humans, not to AI?
it is the bot that is give the test, or being tested:
(the evaluator is human).If the evaluator cannot reliably tell the machine from the human, the machine is said to have passed the test.
It isn't a personal thing, I don't know really , the admins know more on that,If it's not too personal, how does the forum deal with that?
Bots, in general can be blocked from registering fairly easy, or some can be allowed to register,or manually registered, for example the "google bot", appears as a registered user, it is not registered as a normal user, but it is "registered" as a "good bot" and is allowed to browse the forum, etc... how ever those can not post.
Most forums also use a method of checking certain details of a entity when they register, there are data bases available, that if accessed, will show if those details, and the activity of the entity has been listed, if it is listed it is blocked from registering, can not register. The "entity" could be a bot of any kind, or human, --- to be continued ------
As far as this board goes, it is pretty much a manual thing, we do fairly often get new members that will post seemingly innocent comments, sometimes they even get reported, but other times we just notice, the first 2 or 3 posts,
they might not be "spam", but they have "characteristics", that make them pretty easy to spot, it is not know definitely if it is a bot, or just a malicious fool, trying to "poison the well" so to speak. Generally if it is a bot, AI, or Not so Intelligent bot,... no matter, usually there are details in a data base , showing the same entity has hit 100's of other forums,and blogs,...
Of course if a entity makes comment posts, and they seem to be reasonable comments, etc,... they don't get noticed, this would be a bot that has passed the turing test, many site owners, forum owners , actually use a type of AI bot,
to make posts, and reply to posts made by others, the reason is to generate activity, and make the forum/site appear to be active, the more activity, the higher the page ranking in the search engines,...
