NCamero's Journal: Turing Test Notes

Journal by NCamero

Can you prove you're not a machine?

http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/10/13/turing.test/index.html/

"Alan M. Turing was a mathematician and a co-founder of computer science and cryptography. He developed the Turing Test. Turing postulated that in developing a thinking machine or "artificial intelligence," the machine shouldn't have to duplicate human thinking processes exactly. All that should be required of a thinking machine is that it be able to "pass" as a human.

The Turing Test imagines a questioner and two unseen correspondents, one human and one machine. The machine would pass the Turing Test if the questioner couldn't correctly guess which of the two was the machine."

An adequate bootstrap is a contradiction in terms.
