Computing Machinery And Intelligence
Computing Machinery and Intelligence by A.M. Turing is an essay comparing the abilities of computers and the human mind. It talks about the limitations of digital computers and whether or not a game could be created in order to test them. Turing explores the realms of the human brain, its intellectual capacities and whether inanimate objects (Turing, p. 443) like a computer could realistically be compared to it. Through a creative scheme of argument and objection, Turing weaves a web of information supporting his view that a digital computer could one day be created to imitate the human mind.
