How do we actually quantify human intelligence to be able to say that we have succeeded in Turing's dream? Should we instead be looking to create a new sort of machine intelligence different from our own?Last year saw one of the major landmarks on the way to creating artificial intelligence. Playing chess requires a deep logical analysis of the possible moves that can be made next in the game. is about understanding a question written in natural language and accessing quickly a huge database to select the most likely answer in as fast a time as possible.
Do the extraordinary machines we've built since Turing's paper get close to human intelligence?
Can we bypass millions of years of evolution to create something to rival the power of the 1.5kg of grey matter contained between our ears?
