Present three specific questions that you would ask in the Turing Test to determine if something is real or artificialintelligence. Explain why you think these questions would be the type to reveal the computer to be a computer? Why would these responses have to be given by a human being? (If you don't think there are such questions, explain how the three questions you chose would fail to determine which one of the respondents was a computer and which was an actual human).

Support your claims with examples from this week's required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.

A Turing test is not a test per se but an application of the theory of human intelligence vs. artificial intelligence. Can you tell whether the answers are from a computer or a machine? What makes human intelligence different from the way computers calculate? Bell, Witten & Fellows (1998) interviewed and tested for reason and intelligence in machines by comparing responses to that of children. Essentially their research was an application of the Turing principle - that certain machines can learn how to answer in a 'human manner' so that if a person cannot tell which response are that from a computer and which ones are from a human being, the machine passes the test. Now, if I was to ask 3 questions, they would be the following:

1. This first question is going to be related to the weather. I will ask a question contrary to the actual weather experienced the night before. The human being will more than likely contradict my claim as with regards to the weather - or question it, while the machine will exhibit a series of ...

Solution Summary

The solution describes three specific questions to ask the Turing Test to determine if something is real or artificial intelligence.

Think of five questions that you would use if you were acting as the interrogator of a Turingtest. Why would a computer have difficulty answering them well? How would answering, or not answering, these questions help you determine if your subject was a computer or a human being?

(a) We wish to design a Turing machine which, using monadic notation, inputs a
pair (in, n) of positive integers in standard starting position (on an otherwise blank tape), and which halts scanning the rightmost of a string of in is on an otherwise blank tape.
W

For questions 3 to 5, remember that a Turing machine starts in state 1, reading the leftmost nonblank cell.

(1,1,0,2,L)
and the configuration

Draw the next configuration.

A Turing machine with doubly infinite tape is similar to an ordinary Turing machine except that its tape is infinite to the left as well as to the right. The tape is initially filled with blanks except for the portion that contains the input. Computation is defined as usual except that the head never encounters an end to the t

Construct a turing machine to compute the product x*y of any two positive integers x and y. Assume that the inputs x and y are represented in unary and are separated by a single 0.

Write a Turing machine algorithm to perform a unary decrement. Assume that the input number may be 0, in which case a single 0 should be output on the tape to signify that the operation results in a negative number.
When writing Turing machine algorithm, include comments for each instruction or related group of instructions.

Give the transitions for a turing machine that accepts the language given below.
L = {AnBnCn : n>=1}
Where,
An denotes a raised to the power n (a^n)
Bn denotes b raised to the power n (b^n)
Cn denotes c raised to the power n (c^n)

Consider the problem of testing whether a Turing machine M on an input w ever attempts to move its head left when its head is on the left-most tape cell. Formulate this problem as a language and show that it is undecidable.

Psychologist Stevan Harnad has proposed the Total TuringTest for artificial intelligence. To pass this test, the computer being tested would have to be able to do everything that a normal human being does, including walking, riding a bicycle, swimming, dancing, playing a musical instrument, and so on. Only a computer with a rob
