Why the Turing Test is Bullshit
George Dvorsky   Jun 15, 2014   Adam Ford  

IEET contributor Adam Ford interviews IEET and io9 writer George Dvorsky, about his recent article “Why the Turing Test is Bullshit”.

io9 article on Why the Turing Test is Bullshit -… "It's all smoke and mirrors, folks. There's no thinking going on here - just quasi pre-programmed responses spouted out by sophisticated algorithms. But because Turing's conjecture was directed at assessing the presence of human-like cognition in a machine, his test falls flat. It has not stood the test of time and should subsequently either be retired or refined."

So much in life is Bullshit these days, it's difficult to see through what's not?

"The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs, trying to turn itself over but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping. "

Is this all a test?
