About this Quote

This quote by Alan Turing speaks with the concept of expert system and the capacity for computers to be considered smart. Turing suggests that a computer would be considered smart if it might deceive a human into believing that it was human. This suggests that the computer system would need to be able to think and act like a human in order to be considered smart. Turing's quote recommends that the ability to trick a human is a sign of intelligence, as it requires the computer to be able to think and act in a way that is identical from a human. This quote likewise talks to the concept of the Turing Test, which is a test developed to figure out whether a computer system is intelligent or not. The Turing Test requires a computer system to be able to communicate with a human in a way that is equivalent from a human. This quote by Alan Turing speaks to the potential of computer systems to be thought about smart and the value of the Turing Test in figuring out whether a computer system is smart or not.
