Semantics of Social Network Frequencies for Turing Test Immunity

Abstract

People using social networks make an implicit assumption that other players in the network are themselves human. But, while in most cases this assumption could be valid, we claim that this is a rather challenging example of a Turing test for artificial intelligence. To verify this claim we have designed and actually built a CyboPlayer – a software package that has the expected behaviour of a human player in the network. The important characteristics of the design include functions to perform in the social network and adjustable parameters to trigger reasonable behaviors. The final Turing test has been to liberate CyboPlayer in the network, like a bird in nature, and observe its interactions with other players. The paper describes the design, implementation and preliminary results of experiments.
