Turing Test

Primary tabs

There are some pretty good Turing resources about the web.   Here are a handful:

  • The Alan Turing Scrapbook.  A great collection of Turing info and links.  Also has a Javascript implementation of a Turing Machine.
  • The Turing Test page.  Not going to win any design awards, but the links are great.  The page includes links to online chatterbots and information on the Loebner Prize, which will award $100,000 to anyone who can create a chatbot that successfully passes the Turing Test.  
  • John Searle's Chinese Room.   Linguistic philosopher John Searle was one of the Turing Test’s greatest challengers.   His “Chinese Room” argument refutes Turing's behaviourist/functionalist approach to human intelligence.   This has a reasonable formulation of the argument, and traces the many philosophical turns that followed.  
  • Salon: Artificial Stupidity.  The naysayers take on the Turing Test as a benchmark for AI.   Discusses the practical AI movement that dominates the field.   Compare with this fantastic Atlantic article (written ten years later), a where-are-they-now piece on Douglas Hofstadter, the author of the hugely influential Gödel, Escher, Bach.
  • Salon: Machine Language.  A 90s tale about being a human participant in the Turing test.   

 

Also attached is a must-read article on the Turing Test (from the Turing Test page) by Ayse Pinar Saygin, Ilyas Cicekli and Varol Akman.   It has an amazing overview of the Turing Test, and traces its influence over fifty years.
