Essay
What is the Turning Test? Turning Tests are some simple questions to prove
whether the object answering the questions is a human or a robot. For example,
questions like Do you have any siblings? Depending on how it answers will give
you an idea as in if it is a human you are talking to or a robot programmed to
answer the questions you ask it. You can assume what it is by one or two questions
by the least.

How realistic was the chatbot? The website I used was in some ways, realistic but
other ways not realistic at all. It gave good answers that a human would sometimes.
Like its favorite sport is baseball. Which, obviously, is realistic. I also asked it when it
had its birthday and it gave a realistic date but it had said activated not born as
humans would.
Would the chatbot pass the turning test? I think it would possibly pass the test. By
barley if so. It did give really good human answers, there was just some questions
that would throw off the test to make it second guess about it being a human or not
because of the way it had answered the questions it was asked.
If not, then at what point could you tell it was a computer? I could tell it was a
computer really easily and fast. Mainly because of the language and the way they
had worded their answers. And just the way they answered in general. For example,
A question I had asked was a simple birthday and they had said the word
activated as if a computer because computers get activated, not born, like
humans do. I had also asked if they had a brother and they said no but said there
are several other Pandorabot s like me as if it was a robot figure.
Think of any occasions that a computer might want to know if it is talking to another
computer or a real life person? I dont think so because a computer cant think
about anything else except for what it is programmed to do from the humans.
Because they dont and cant think on their own because they arent humans.
