Concept
The 3rd All-Russia competition of Russian-speaking chatbots will take place in the form of a Turing Test. Developed by one of the pioneers of Artificial intelligence — English mathematician, Alan Turing – the test checks the ability of a robot to speak with a human in a humanlike manner. The test is considered successfully passed if an independent expert, chatting with a robot and a human at the same time, cannot identify who is man and who is machine.

Participating teams connect their bots to a unified API provided by the organizers. Each team can enter up to three bots. Each bot must have its own unique personality and character denoted by its name, e.g. "Blonde Penny" or "All-knowing Sheldon".

Organizers will provide a human volunteer for each bot to complete a pair. The volunteer's task is to play a role similar to the bot's while chatting with the experts.

All bots and volunteers will be available to experts for the duration of the competition from February 14-16 through the Telegram bot. Anyone who would like can participate as an expert, talk to several pairs, ask 6 questions, and try to guess who is real and who isn't. Experts will see only the name of the other party, who can be either bot or human.

The winner will be the participant whose bot is considered to be human by the most experts.

Confidentiality
For the convenience of all participating teams, we guarantee the complete confidentiality of your participation: you can be sure your identity won't be revealed. You will have the opportunity to come forward and claim authorship of your bot after the announcement of the results of the competition.

How we provide confidentiality: each team fills in the registration form on this page and gets a random, impersonal name (login), like red or green, which all teams use to take part in the competition. Teams use this impersonal name to log into the API platform, where all interactions take place. Everybody sees only the randomly-generated login of your team.

You can find all of our confidentiality obligations as organizers in the public offer agreement for participating teams.
