Turing Test/Wolfram: when it comes to (…) Turing Tests, people who’ve tried connecting, for example, Wolfram Alpha to their Turing Test bots find that the bots lose every time. Because all you have to do is start asking the machine sophisticated questions and it will answer them! No human can do that.

There’s still the conversational bot, which is Turing’s idea. That one hasn’t been solved yet. It will be solved—the only question is, what is the application for which it is solved? >Formalization/Wolfram.
One big difference between Turing’s time and ours is the method of communicating with computers. >Human machine communication/Wolfram.
Brockman I 276
Many of the most powerful applications of the Turing Test fall away now that we have this additional communication channel [e.g., visual display].
A good Turing Test, for me, will be when a bot can answer most of my email. That’s a tough test. It would have

to learn those answers from the human the email is connected to. I should be able to train an avatar, an AI, that wifi do what I can do—perhaps better than I could. >Artificial Intelligence/Wolfram.
