AI Book Club Discussions Comments I would try to come up with a question that uses language in a non-standard way, like a pun, because I don't think a computer could answer it. Example: Which of the following is a joke, and why is it (sort-of) funny? a. I like this view of the sandstone formation, I don't take it for granite b. I like this view of the sandstone formation, I don't take it for quartz When did you realize you were in love for the first time? Something to that effect.... although I can see even this question being manipulated. It's hard to think of a question that tests something that you think of as uniquely human. Some of my friends name their children using parts of the parents names. Jalise was one name that my friend called her child. Can you guess the names of her parents? What if a couple's names were Kelly and Dan what would you name your child using the pattern from the prior question. I feel there are things in acceptable Turing tests that naturally lead to obscure answers either by human or AI. Come up with a perfect question seems less important than coming up with a conversational flow in the midst of the use of questions. I'd love to see the use of humor (such as puns :) in appropriately timed responses. Discussions that actually evolve and weren't just question, question, question. In reply to Kelly Powers: I like this concept. The ability to consider origins of unique words would be a good test, but responses from AI or human could easily set the question aside.
