In this episode, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the Turing Test for artificial intelligence. Does the Turing Test need to be retired as discussed on insideHPC, or does it just need an update for modern culture? The discussion quickly degrades into what may be our funniest show ever!
Other Big Questions tackled include:
- Rich asks how easy would it be to fool a contestant with open-ended philosophical questions?
- Dan asks that as we increasingly turn to Social Media for opinions and answers, could a bot fool us? If so, don’t we have the right to know who we are dealing with?
- Could Henry Newman pass the Turing Test? Rich says the jury is still out, but Dan says there’s no way.
