World's First Original Imitation Game

Turing's Original Imitation Game was played for the first time ever at Simon's Rock College of Bard in Great Barrington, MA on Saturday, April 16, 2005. The experiment was organized by Cameo Wood, Melissa Leventhal and Allyson Sgro. Dr. Wallace of the A. I. Foundation was invited to speak after the event and to assist with the chat bot technology.

Because of the deceptive nature of the experiment, the experimenters were forced to observe absolute secrecy about the event until now. Today an announcement can finally be made to say that, after much meticulous planning, the world's first Turing Imitation Game, as opposed to the Standard Turing Test, has been carried out. The organizers are still analyzing the data and will publish more news, data, dialogs and eventually a scholarly paper in the weeks and months ahead. This announcement is just an early heads up to say that the experiment was a procedural success.
