In his paper Computing machinery and intelligence, Turing introduces a rather trivial chess problem as a conversation piece in an example Turing test. The example is about much more than computers playing chess: it has a hidden message that is about resolving ambiguity and knowledge representation, probably inserted by Turing as an Easter egg for us to find.

Not Another Look at the Turing Test!

This book investigates the nature of intelligence in both machines and humans through practical application of the Turing Test and actual transcripts will be considered with startling results.

The Turing Test

The structure of the Turing Test debates has been diagrammed into seven large posters containing over 800 major claims, rebuttals, and counterrebuttals. This “mapping” of the debates is explained and

The question, “Can machines think?” is considered, and the question is replaced by another, which is closely related to it and is expressed in relatively unambiguous words.
