Check out this page describing The Turing Test as applied to a twinkie. Too funny. For those of you that don’t know what The Turing Test is: it is essentially a test for computer intelligence. You set an experiment in which a volunteer is talking to “someone” via a computer console. The volunteer is not told whether it is a computer or a human being at the other end, and is asked to guess what she thinks she is talking to (a computer or a human). If the computer fools the volunteer into thinking that it’s human, it “passes” the test and thus has intelligence. Look here fore a more thorough explanation!
