Major Flaw In Turing Test For Artificial Intelligence

Credit: DOI 10.1080/0952813X.2015.1132273 A new study says it has found a major flaw in the Turing Test, the leading method to determine artificial intelligence. It was designed in 1950 by computer scientist Alan Turing and assesses a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behavior indistinguishable from that of a human. It requires a human judge to converse with two hidden entities, a human and a machine, and then determine which is which. Turing introduced his imitation game as a replacement for the question ‘Can machines think?’ and the end conclusion of this is that if an entity passes the test then we have to regard it as a thinking entity. It is also called the ‘imitation game’ but if it were to actually to mimic a human in one way it could potentially pass the…
