Although one could argue that [the provocation of Turing’s test] has not been definitively answered in a philosophical sense, in my view it has met the fate of many such questions: it has not so much been answered as rendered increasingly uninteresting or even irrelevant. As the cognitions that intelligent machines have performed have deepened and broadened, we can exclude what they do from our definition of “thinking” only if we narrow the range of what counts as thinking so significantly that it becomes questionable whether many humans can think.
