Geek stuff, sci-fi... The Cambridge University mathematician laid the foundation for the invention of software. As part of its anniversary celebration, BusinessWeek is presenting a series of weekly profiles for the greatest innovators of the past 75 years. Some made their mark in science or technology; others in management, finance, marketing, or government. In late September, 2004, BusinessWeek will publish a special commemorative issue on Innovation. Elsewhere, there is also a special article for Turing.

RE: Alan Turing and the "Turing Test"

Fooling me into thinking something is other than it is, or fooling everybody, doesn't make it so.

Stop and think for a while about what would make it so. If you find a good definition, please let the world know, because it's not as easy as it seems.

Can you prove to me that you are, in fact, human?

Turings "game" has a deeper philosophical basis than you'd think at first glance.
