Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA

Can machines think?  This exhibit explored the strange afterlife of the Turing Test as it has circulated in popular, scientific, and commercial cultures. It reexamined Turing’s own interactions with humans and machines, later dreams of thinking machines, as well as an effort to translate Turing’s parlor game into a real test of artificial intelligence.

Staff curator assisting faculty guest curator Sophia Roosth and two grad students.
