If you take the turing test into consideration and extend it to this scenario, it would be inferred that when Watson decided to cut down the power and thereby disable Siri, he is well conscious of what he did. The Chinese room argument is one argument that was raised against the Turing test. The argument says machines distort signals so as to make them look like they actually talk to a human, but in fact they simply interrupt communications and send out signals to interact. The

test involves a person in a room who knows only English but is shown how to interpret Chinese symbols, so that the participant may create the illusion that he understands Chinese. The people outside the hall would be dumbed to send the individual signs in Chinese and that person would then understand and respond. Although the debate in the Chinese room does carry some valid information towards the topic, I still have to side with Turing's ideas for an intelligent machine. In my view, the Turing test has less holes in its case than the Chinese room Of example, if a machine is clever enough to

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
