Distinguishing artificial intelligence from the real thing.

Congratulations! As an expert in Philosophy of mind and Artificial Intelligence, you and your colleagues have been selected to be the panel of judges for the Turing Test this year.

Your task is to devise a strategy that would make it possible for you to distinguish artificial intelligence from the real thing.

To do so, you must do two things:

1) Explain as clearly as you can what sort of questions you would ask to determine whether you were talking to a machine or a real person. Give some specific examples of the questions you would ask.

2) explain the strategy behind your asking these questions. For example, what answers would you expect to get, and what would you conclude from those answers?
