This is big. A computer has successfully managed to fool a bunch of researchers into thinking that it was a 13-year-old boy named Eugene Goostman. In doing so, it has become the first computer in the world to have successfully passed the Turing Test.
But can 13 year old boys pass the Turing Test? Let’s not kid ourselves here.

Some details on that crash that left Tracy Morgan in critical condition early this morning:
Police have charged 35-year-old Kevin Roper of Jonesboro, Ga. with one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto after the early morning Saturday accident, according to the Middlesex County Acting Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and New Jersey State Police Superintendant Col. Joseph Fuentes.
Roper was driving a Walmart tractor trailer northbound on the New Jersey Turnpike near Exit 8A in Cranbury, N.J. — about 15 miles north of Trenton — around 1 a.m. Saturday when he failed to notice slow moving traffic and slammed into the limo bus, which had Morgan, stand-up comedians Ardie Fuqua Jr. and Harris Stanton, and several others on board, according to officials.
One person, comic “Jimmy Mack” McNair, died in the crash last night.
