Synopsis:

This book includes an introduction by eminent philosopher Daniel C. Dennett. This is the most comprehensive analysis of the Turing Test ever published. This book features running commentaries by Stevan Harnad, Kenneth Ford, Pat Hayes and others on Alan Turing's classic paper, 'Computing Machinery and Intelligence'. "Parsing the Turing Test" is a landmark exploration of both the philosophical and methodological issues surrounding the search for true artificial intelligence. Will computers and robots ever think and communicate the way humans do? When a computer crosses the threshold into self-consciousness, will it immediately jump into the Internet and create a World Mind? Will intelligent computers someday recognize the rather doubtful intelligence of human beings? Distinguished psychologists, computer scientists, philosophers, and programmers from around the world debate these weighty issues - and, in effect, the future of the human race - in this important volume.
