Imitation Game (Turing Test Measures)

The imitation game or Turing test measures a machine’s capacity to manifest intelligent behavior; that is, if it can “imitate” human logic and communication. This game asks a human evaluator to converse with two players via a text-only channel (like using a computer). He is then asked to determine which set of responses belong to a machine. This was developed by Alan Turing, an English mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, computer scientist, philosopher, and theoretical biologist. Turing introduced this test in 1950 with his paper, “Computing Machinery and Intelligence”.
