  1. The field of artificial intelligence reached an important landmark over the weekend as the Turing Test was passed for the first time ever.

    For the record, it's just "Ukraine" now. The "the" was dropped following the collapse of the Soviet Union and is actually considered disrespectful by some Ukrainians.

    "The" has no meaning, neither in Russian no in Ukrainian languages, it is one particle that has no translation and therefore simply omitted. So what disrespect are you talking about? I never heard of anything like that.

    I heard it from a Ukrainian professor at my university who lectured my entire class on Soviet repression.

    Did you consider Googling it dude? http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Ukraine vs the Ukraine

    I used your Google search and pulled this from a Business Insider article on "Ukraine" vs. "The Ukraine":

    Umm, isn't Russia kind of sidelining Ukrainian statehood? I think the Ukraine has more to worry about than the definite article that precedes its name.

    Don't be coy, you're fully aware of the conflict in that part of the world, but that doesn't make my initial assertion that it's considered rude any less valid.

    Russians call Ukraine Hohlyandiya, which is as good name as any, except Ukrainians (Hohly) do not like it, but who cares...

    Somewhat oddly, that name just looks like nobody in Russia can spell, "holy land". Perhaps their own Cyrillic alphabet confuses them. It sure confuses me.
  9. Stop picking on Russians. It wasn't them who started it.
  10. 30% doesn't get you a pass in any test that I have ever heard of.

    Further, a Ukraine bot talking to English speaking testers is an *****ically flawed test.

    What a crock, seriously.

    Josef Stalin killed millions of his own people. So, what's not to love about the Russians?

    Ukrainians
  14. Unless I'm mistaken, due to the 'Ukraine' obsession, no one seems to have mentioned 'Skynet!'

    I don't suppose we can all get on topic? I would say, "Back on topic," but it never got there to begin with. Thank you kindly.

    OK then. "Artificial intelligence", isn't that what it takes to get into your girlfriends pants?

    Or would that be, "the artifice of intelligence".:p

    Hey wait a minute, due to trickle down technology, in another few years every computer will be able to seduce human females. As if there wasn't enough competition already....:oops: How's the average nerd ever going to get lucky.
