Innovations in Science: Passing the ‘Turing Test’

Innovations in Science: Passing the ‘Turing Test’ – http://huff.to/1ABspgH

Passing the Turing test should be easy.  Just train a computer to act irrationally and use lots of invective.

Whether that would show artificial intelligence or artificial stupidity is open to debate.

In any case, that wouldn’t make the machine conscious.

An example of natural stupidity is that Turing is most famous for a flippant, whimsical speculation outside of his area of expertise for which he had no basis or background. 

As usually happens when scientists delve into philosophy the result is rubbish. 

Turing is one of the ten most influential people in history probably, for real achievments, why are people obsessing over this intellectual equivalent of a cartoon doodle, the Turing Test.
