LateLab | T100

Alan Turing

Wednesday 11th April 2012, 7pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

2012 marks the centenary of the birth of Alan Turing, regarded by many as the originator of modern computing. The T100 Twittest is based on the ‘Turing Test’ for artificial intelligence – re-imagined for the social media generation.

Twitter is perfect for this test as twitterers may not be who they claim to be: human, robot or Paris Hilton? To a background of wartime jazz from the Bill Fleming Quartet, the audience will have the chance to try the game.
