turing test

The Turing Test is a way for a person, or a computer, to be tested to see if it is as intelligent as a real person. To do this test, a person (the examiner) talks to two people or machines at the same time and can't see which one is which. If the examiner can't tell which one is a real person, then either person or machine is considered to be as smart as a real person.
