Are we still relevant if we can no longer reliably grade
the Turing Test?
The Turing Test began as a conversation where a human determined whether or not her correspondent was a machine. Advances in programming and hardware have, as predicted by Scott Westerfeld
, reversed the field so that it now takes a computer to tell if the correspondent is a machine or not. With the hardware
in place, the ability to autonomously
program, and the inability of us meatbags to keep up, isn't the birth of Skynet just around the corner?
