The mind-body problem

The Turing Test

the mind body problem
The mind-body problem
  • Recall the question “Where does the body end and the mind begin?”
  • Where one ends and the other begins in the context of intelligence is the mind-body problem
is the mind separate from the body
Is the mind separate from the body?
  • The answer depends upon which philosophical view you follow:-
    • Materialism, where only the material body exists and the mind does not and the brain carries out the functions of thought and intelligence
    • Interactionism, where the mind has a spiritual existence rather than a physical
    • Functionalism, where the way the mind exists is of no consequence

Philosophic Issues
  • In 1950 Alan Turing, a British computer scientist devised a test to determine whether a computer could be called intelligent.
  • The test was devised in response to the question “Can a computer think?”
the turing test
The Turing Test
  • The Turing Test is :
    • One person sits at a computer and types questions
    • The computer is connected to two other hidden computers
    • At one computer a human reads and responds to the questions
    • At the other a computer with no human aid runs a program to provide responses
the result
The result
  • If the person typing the questions can not tell the difference between the human responses and the computer responses then according to Turing the computer is said to be intelligent.
