Here's an article explaining why the news that a computer has passed the Turing test for the first time is somewhere between overblown and outright false.

Regardless, it's clear that chatbots can now fool some of the people some of the time – not because the chatbots are superb yet, but because a lot of people have really poorly developed faculties for discrimination. 

I'm not a big enthusiast of the Turing Test, anyway. (By the way, I say that as someone who has huge respect for Alan Turing's work in general.) Dialogue mimicry is a pretty low standard / irrelevant aside for artificial intelligence, compared to things like the ability to generate and test conjectures based on context.

Here's a good discussion about how to defend against and how to challenge this odd patent Amazon recently managed to get for the world's most popular and well known studio lighting technique. This might be useful for some of my friends whose businesses rely heavily on studio photography against white backgrounds.
Much confusion and consternation has been caused by Amazon's securing a patent for itself on a lighting arrangement that has been in widespread use by photographers for at least three decades. See:...
