<B>The Personal Turing Test - an Addendum</B><I>, November 21st, 2005</I>
<P>In an <A HREF=http://www.jabberwacky.com/j2presspr-J2013-Computing-Machinery-and-the-Individual>earlier paper</A> we proposed a variant on Alan Turing's Imitation Game. For the new Impersonation Game a machine must adopt the persona of a human individual and convince the judge either that it 'is' that person, or at least create sufficient uncertainty that the judge says 'I don't know'.
<P>We now propose a control experiment - humans impersonating humans - to determine how many of the proposed 100 Impersonation Games must be won to pass the Personal Turing Test.
<P>We also announce a new, funded project called Pasion to further social presence research, which may help to lead to techniques of passing the Personal Turing Test.
