I get frustrated when my smartphone doesn't get what I'm saying. It would be amazing if our devices could be more understanding.

A computer program has convinced judges that it is human. It has successfully passed the Turing test, a question-and-answer game that reveals whether people can detect if they are talking to a machine or a human.

Apparently the program simulates a 13-year-old boy. This makes me really curious what the conversation was about...
