In the 1950s, Alan Turing, a famous mathematician and computer scientist who helped Britain crack enemy codes during World War II, published a paper describing a test he called the “Imitation Game.” This became the basis for a recent film, as well as “Turing learning.”
His test was straightforward: A “judge” has to differentiate whether the “person” speaking to him or her is a human being or a computer. If the judge is less than 50% sure that the person talking to him is a human, then the computer has reached a new level of artificial intelligence.
The test, which has come to be known as the “Turing Test,” has been used for decades to measure how advanced computers and software have become. But, the Turing Test was designed with humans in mind.
What happens when computers start judging other computers?
