Turing and Wittgenstein — Two Perceptions of Reality
If I were to summarize in a few words the contribution Turing made to philosophy I would emphasize the following three themes:
Turing’s definition of an abstract general computer, i.e. what we now call a Turing machine,
Turing’s thesis that everything which is computable can be computed by a Turing machine, and
Turing’s ideas about an artificial intelligence and its criterion, summarized in what is commonly called the Turing test.
