Topic : What kind of “test,” exactly, is Turing proposing in his article “Computing Machinery and Intelligence”? And which of the various objections Turing considers strikes you as the most serious? Does Turing have available an adequate reply? In general, is the “Turing Test” a plausible idea? Defend your answer. “Computing Machinery and Intelligence” can be easily found on the web. http://cogprints.org/499/1/turing.html, for example. The essay should obviously be answering the topic “questions”. THIS IS NOT A BOOK REPORT NOR A SUMMARY. It is definitely okay to use “I” in this paper. Professor’s note : this topic is also a bit open-ended, and that’s by design. Remember that there are really two things going on in Turing’s article. First, there is an epistemological proposal: something (I’ll leave it to you to say what it is, exactly!) to do with developing a plausible probe or rational criterion for intelligence, and, second, a defence of the metaphysical thesis of what we would today call “Strong AI.” You are free, then, in your paper to emphasize one or the other of these sides of Turing’s discussion. But you do need at least to touch on both. That is, you need to say something about the test/game as well as something about an objection to Strong AI (theological, from math, Lady Lovelace, etc.). You might also consider how the two sides of Turing’s paper might be related.
