Twit-test Competition 2012!

Using Twitter, the twit-test is a contemporary take on the ‘Turing Test’ for artificial intelligence.

Working as individuals and as class groups, using a secure twitter stream, school pupils and their teachers will take part in a real-world experiment where they have to work out which tweets in a twitter stream are for real and which are fake – and they also have to work out how to fake it themselves!

With strong links to the Curriculum for Excellence, this competition has been developed by the Informatics Forum at the University of Edinburgh and delivered in partnership with the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
