Response Paper Assignment

In a 500-1000 word essay, address the following question taken from your text: “If you were fooled by the Turing test, would you be willing to grant the status of “thinker” to the computer program that fooled you? Why, or why not?” (Mitchell, 2019, p. 148)

[Students: Do not belabor the word “fooled.” This isn’t about “trickery.” The question is whether you are intellectually forced to the position that the computer is a “thinker” if you are unable to distinguish the computer from other “thinkers” (like some human beings 🙂 ]
