Mind vs. Machine

In the race to build computers that can think like humans, the proving ground is the Turing Test – an annual battle between the world’s most advanced artificial-intelligence programs and ordinary people. The objective? To find out whether a computer can act “more human” than a person. In his own quest to beat the machines, the author discovers that the march of technology isn’t just changing how we live, it’s raising new questions about what it means to be human

The Atlantic has a fascinating piece on both the history and future of artificial intelligence. It’s long, but definitely worth a read if you’re as nerdy as I am.
