Examples

Turing's response to this kind of argument seems to be that a continuousstate machine can be imitated by discretestate machines with very small levels of error.
The Turing Test Oppy, Graham 2008

From this, Turing infers that the brain is likely to be a continuousstate machine; and he then notes that, since discretestate machines are not continuousstate machines, there might be reason here for thinking that no discretestate machine can be intelligent.
The Turing Test Oppy, Graham 2008

We outline some work which enlightens the connection between spatial continuousstate branching processes, generalized FlemingViot processes and coalescents with multiple collisions.

can only be located in continuousstate machines (if, indeed, it is right to suppose that we are not discretestate machines).
The Turing Test Oppy, Graham 2008

If someone thinks that real thought (or intelligence, or mind, or whatever) can only be located in a continuousstate machine, then the fact ” if, indeed, it is a fact ” that it is possible for discretestate machines to pass the Turing Test shows only that the Turing Test is no good.
