In fact, Turing well understood the need for empirical evidence, proposing what has become known as the Turing Test to determine if a machine was capable of thinking. The test was an adaptation of a Victorian-style competition called the imitation game.

It involves secluding a man and woman from an interrogator who has to guess which is which by asking questions and studying written replies.

The first Love-lace-question is whether computational concepts can help us understand how human creativity is possible. The second is whether computers (now or in the future) could ever do things which at least appear to be creative.

No matter how complex artificial intelligence systems get, information must be programmed in at this basic level, and with every possible variation. You can imagine why computer codes are really, really long. Some take months or years to write. But when they are finished, some computers can complete hundreds of thousands of tasks in as little as one second

Traditional, or top-down AI continued during this period but new approaches began to emerge that looked at AI from the bottom-up. These approaches were also labeled Neat and Scruffy approaches segregating them into their representative camps.

The history of AI is interesting all by itself. It's a modern-day drama, filled with excitement and anticipation, discovery, and disappointment. From over-promises of early (and later) AI research, to fears of the unknown from the general public, AI's history is worthy of study by itself.

The central scientific goal of AI is to understand the principles that make intelligent behavior possible in natural or artificial systems. This is done by:
-the analysis of natural and artificial agents;
-formulation and testing hypotheses about what it takes to construct intelligent agents; and
-designing, building, and experimenting with computational systems that perform tasks commonly viewed as requiring intelligence.
