# Turing machine

Cognitive scientists believe there is an infinite potential variety of human behavior. However, they also believe that this infinite behavior is produced by a finite devise, such as the Turing machine. How can these two views be reconciled?

#### Solution Preview

One of the reasons that the Turing machine is of interest to Cognitive Psychologists is that it is a finite devise that is capable, in principle, of generating an infinite variety of behaviors. This is possible because the finite properties of a Turing machine consist of a set ...

#### Solution Summary

This solution explores and reconciles (if possible) two views held by Cognitive scientists e.g an infinite potential variety of human behavior versus infinite behavior being produced by a finite devise, such as the Turing machine.
