Rewind to around about half a century ago, 1950 precisely, Alan Turing conducted a test of a machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. Turing subsequently published his paper, "Computing Machinery and Intelligence" in which he defined what we call the Turing Test, or the Imitation Game. In his test, he actually deemed a computer to be passing the test of intelligence if it can fool a human interrogator. The test was simple in nature, an interrogator interrogates two separate entities 1. a human and 2. an AI system but cannot see them. If the interrogator cannot tell apart the two as in which is the human and which is the AI agent then it says that it fooled the human interrogator and it showed ...
