2007 Loebner Prize Contest Has Only 3 Entries

Hugh Loebner announced that the finalists for Loebner Prize 2007 are:

(a) Rollo Carpenter - (Icogno Ltd.)
(b) George Medeksza - (Zabaware)
(c) Noah Duncan. (self)

There were no other entries this year, in the annual contest billed as the first real-world Turing Test. Due to technical issues ALICE, the contest winner in 2000, 2001 and 2004, was not entered in this years' competition. It seems that many others stayed away as well. The contest will be held on October 21 at Loebner's apartment in New York City.

  1. You can enter AIML bots in the Loebner Prize contest and Chatterbox Challenge as long as their content differs significantly from the free ALICE personality. AIML bots have competed in the LPC in the past. The contest organizers just don't want lots of bots entered that are essentially "clones" of each other.
