  • Turing's response to this kind of argument seems to be that a continuous-state machine can be imitated by discrete-state machines with very small levels of error.

    The Turing Test

  • From this, Turing infers that the brain is likely to be a continuous-state machine; and he then notes that, since discrete-state machines are not continuous-state machines, there might be reason here for thinking that no discrete-state machine can be intelligent.

    The Turing Test

  • We outline some work which enlightens the connection between spatial continuous-state branching processes, generalized Fleming-Viot processes and coalescents with multiple collisions.

  • can only be located in continuous-state machines (if, indeed, it is right to suppose that we are not discrete-state machines).

    The Turing Test

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