           The turning test is an experiment that was initially created by an English mathematician Alan Turning. This test was proposed in 1950. The goal of this test was to figure out whether or not if machinery can have its own ability to think and to generate its own intelligence. In the test, the subject (human) would be separated from everything else and then next would be interacted with a “being” (human or machinery). The human would have to now guess whether or not if it is a human or a machine. If the answer is a machine and the test subject guessed wrong (fooled by the machine) then that means that the Turning test is hence passed.
           “The phrase “The Turing Test” is sometimes used more generally to refer to some kinds of behavioral tests for the presence of mind, or thought, or intelligence in putatively minded entities.” This test was created to see if the machines can outsmart the human in the game of “imitation”. I do believe that machines can be smarter and be more precise; however there are also some things that they cannot simply imitate. Machines cannot have emotions, feelings, and sensations. Machines would be acting the way it is according to the program that it is under. But I do think that in some level machineries can evolve in their own way of development in knowledge and intelligence.
