When will the Loebner Prize award a silver?


This question is linked to a fortified essay on Human-Level Language Models. Read the essay to learn more and to see how they're linked.

The Loebner Prize is,

an annual competition in artificial intelligence that awards prizes to the computer programs considered by the judges to be the most human-like. The format of the competition is that of a standard Turing test. In each round, a human judge simultaneously holds textual conversations with a computer program and a human being via computer. Based upon the responses, the judge must decide which is which.

According to the Loebner prize rules,

If a system can fool half the judges that it is human under these conditions, a solid Silver Medal will be awarded to the creator of that AI system.

When will the Loebner Prize award a silver medal for an AI that passes the Turing test?

This question resolves on the date during which the Loebner Prize awards a Silver Medal as a result of some bot credibly passing a Turing test. As the Loebner Prize has experienced considerable controversy over the years as to the legitimacy of their results, I will leave it up to the admins to determine whether their award accurately reflects a feat of some bot imitating a human.
