Russian computer passes Turing test for the first time

Could we see non-human forum members in the future....

A team of programmers out of Russia created Eugene Goostman, who is supposed to be a 13 year old boy from Odessa, Ukraine. Eugene successfully passed the test, which was conducted at the Royal Society in London, by convincing 33 per cent of the judges that it was human.

Actually it didn't pass, it essentially cheated, but a lot of geek/tech sites picked up the story (at least a couple issued retractions).
"Clearly, the best weapon against ISIS is our crack squad of Nigerian princes."

Could you find a link where a retraction took place?

Here are a few examples of some stories...

Here's a story on it basically saying it's not legit in their opinion.

Here is a story that says at the bottom: "The headline and post have been updated with regard to controversy over whether or not 'Eugene' actually passed the Turing Test."

I believe I originally saw the article on asapScience, who issued a retraction, saying: "Okay, so let's be clear: A chatbot DID NOT pass the Turing Test. We screwed up! Here's what actually happened," and then linking to  this page.
"Clearly, the best weapon against ISIS is our crack squad of Nigerian princes."
