top The Lovelace Test Is Better Than the Turing Test At Detecting AI
Good points. I would add one more- people lie. There is nothing to stop the human comparison from lying and saying he was a computer as well. If both say they are a computer that should level the playing field so that they both need to judged on the merits of the debate.
top Professors: US "In Denial" Over Poor Maths Standards
Um, talk about bad math. Look at the two graphs. One is the mean and the other is the average. Mean is not average. So while you do make a good point about looking all test takers compared to just those entering college, your evidence is irrelevant.
