Turing Test Short Essay


In this assignment we came up with 10 different original questions. After we
wrote these questions down, we went to a website that had a chat bot. We asked
each question and wrote down whatever answer the chat bot gave us. With these
answers we decided if they sounded humanlike or not and if they did not sound
humanlike, we wrote down what made the answers sound like a computer!
The Turing Test is a test that will help you determine whether you are talking
to human or talking to a computer. It helps you determine this from the questions
you ask and the answers you receive. The chat bot was pretty realistic because a
majority of the time it gave answers that sounded humanlike. This chat bot would
probably pass the test, they only answered computer like 4 out of the 10 questions.
I could tell it was a computer when it would beat around answering my easy
questions. An occasion where a computer might want to know if it was talking to
another computer or a real life person, would be when there is an account trying to
be created they need to know if its a human or computer because if its a computer
then they can stop it from creating an account and save space instead of wasting it
on a computer.
In conclusion, I think it is harder than it seems to tell the difference between a
computer and a human. I think it could have been easier to tell the difference if I
wouldve asked more specific questions but because I asked easy, broad, general
questions it was easy for them to give simple generic answers. Another reason it
was so hard for me to tell the difference was because some of the answers just
sounded like an awkward human.
