34 – Artificial Intelligence Tests

If you don’t know what a Turing Test is (and I didn’t explain well enough in the comic), it’s basically a test proposed by Alan Turing to answer the question: Can computers think? If a human observer can’t tell the difference between IMing with a human and IMing with a computer, then it is said that the computer can “think.”

This is probably the geekiest comic I’ve done so far. But fret not readers who aren’t computer science majors, there won’t be too many of these.

    Very nice.
    I think this is one that not many people will get. Which makes it even funnier.
