. On Behalf Of Darren Greer


I just read the Kurzweil article and he points out that Watson is much
closer to being able to pass the Turing test than a chess playing computer
as it is dealing with human language. And so based on that criteria, it is a
step forward no matter how you slice it.




Chess programs have already passed the Turing test in chess, a long time
ago.  So Rybka wins the Turing test at chess, Watson passes or is getting
close in Jeopardy, neither can pass at general language.
