What Have We Learned in the Path from Gödel and Turing to Artificial Intelligence?
“Turing said something like this: Specify the way in which you believe that a man is superior to a computer and I shall build a computer which refutes your belief. Turing’s challenge should not be taken up; for any sufficiently precise specification could be used in principle to programme a computer. Also the challenge was about behaviour — admittedly including verbal behaviour — rather than about subjective experience.”
