Listening and Vocabulary: The Turing test

The videos you are going to watch in this lesson are largely about artificial intelligence. Before you dive into this topic, think about human intelligence and answer the questions below.

  1. What does being intelligent mean to you?
  2. Who would you describe as one of the most intelligent people you’ve met? What’s so special about this person?

Over to artificial intelligence: think about the following questions.

  1. Can machines ever learn to think like humans? Why (not)?
  2. Can machines learn to have human-like conversations? Why (not)?
  3. How can artificial intelligence be measured?

Now you are going to learn about the Turing test, which was designed a long time ago to measure artificial intelligence.
