The chess example in Turing's Mind paper is really about ambiguity

  title={The chess example in Turing's Mind paper is really about ambiguity},
  author={Jeroen D. Fokker},
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.
