Also, either the author of the article has a listening comprehension problem or the assitant professor quoted in the article has a reading comprehension problem.
Look at Turing's original article. It says that the imitation game is played between a man (A), a woman (B), and a player C. C has to decide among A and B who is a man and who is a woman. Now, the _man_ is replaced is a computer and we ask if C will perform as well or poorly as before.
So in Turing's version we have a computer A pretending to be a woman to C, and a woman trying to convince C that she is the woman.
Turning's original test _does not_ have a man and a computer pretending to be a woman to a judge.
