Proposed by computer scientist Alan Turing in his classic 1950 paper "Computer Machinery and Intelligence," the imitation game (also called the Turing Test)
|“||puts a human judge in a text-based chat room with either another person or a computer. The human judge can interrogate the other party and carry on a conversation, and then the judge is asked to guess whether the other party is a person or a computer. If a computer can consistently fool human judges in this game, then the computer is deemed to be exhibiting intelligence.||”|
