Can Machines Think?
What do computer scientists say about the ability of machines to think? Alan Turing, the father of modern computer science, tackled the question in 1950 and proposed the Turing test as an answer. Is the Turing test important today? Robert J. Marks discusses the Turing test with Dr. George Montañez.
