Turing's test for intelligence is based on responses on a computer terminal that are indistinguishable from human. By returning answers to random
questions, an artificially intelligent device would be completely humanlike in its responses.
I would add, the ability to voluntarily answer comments or questions, much like this forum.
I haven't seen any programming that is very humanlike in its responses. In fact, some of the posters here seem oddly 'off', if you catch my
It's my opinion that our consciousness is a result of the 'randomness' of the neural links and connections in our brains. This offers some
explanation for the randomness of our personalities, at least.
I don't think computer science will ever duplicate the numbers or randomness of the neural network needed to approximate the human brain; either
intentionally or accidentally.
