"Can machines think?"

Many have heard of the Turing test, but what did Alan Turing think about the difference between humans and machines?

Why did he never answer his own question, "Can machines think?"

And why did he talk about a "question and answer method" but focused solely on the machine's ability to answer questions?

Can machines not be designed to ask questions?

And if they can, do they ask questions for the same reasons and in the same way as humans?

I look forward to exploring the assumptions built into AI from the very beginning in keynotes and workshops in the coming weeks.

Want to explore the questions with me?
