The 1950s ushered in excitement about outer space and, incidentally, UFO sightings and conspiracies about alien life. The decade also brought about a new theory of artificial intelligence—computer scientist Alan Turing proposed that if a computer was able to fool a human into believing it was human, the computer should be considered "intelligent".

No computer has been able to pass the Turing test yet, but what if a bot could fool a human into believing it was an alien?

During our livestream on Thursday at 2pm EST, we will teach you how to build an alien chatbot using Python, step-by-step. By the end, you’ll have created a chatbot that may not pass a true Turing test, but it just might pass an "E.T.uring" test.
