Intelligent bots are quickly becoming a part of our everyday life. Virtual assistants, shopping bots, and game playing programs are used daily by millions of people. As such programs become closer in their abilities and intelligence to human beings the need will arise to verify and recognize such artificially intelligent software just like it is often necessary to authenticate and confirm identity of people. We propose applying techniques developed for behavior based recognition of humans to the identification and verification of intelligent game bots. Our experimental results demonstrate feasibility of such methods for both game Bot verification and even for recognition purposes. © 2007 EUROSIS-ETI.
