The paper suggests that it is time to shift the focus from whether a machine can mimic human responses to a more fundamental question: “Does a program reason in the way that humans reason?”

The Turing test, which has long been a cornerstone of AI evaluation, involves a human evaluator attempting to distinguish between human and machine responses …
