“Chat-bots are a very popular application when replacing living people is necessary. Every call-centre is an example to that. This is a virtual friend, an application for lonely people that simulates the functions of a partner – from psychological support to sexual intercourse. Give it 30-40 years and we will get there”, - said Yuri Ammosov to the “Kommersant” magazine, commenting on the creation of the “Eugene Goostman” computer program. This program is the only one of its king to pass the Turing Test which determines if an artificial intelligence is indistinguishable from a human.
