Can machines think?

Philosophy 27 (April):148-62 (1952)
Abstract
Mr. A. M. Turing was quoted in The Times about a year ago as saying it would be interesting to discover the degree of intellectual activity of which a machine was capable and to what extent it could think for itself. He has now pressed this suggestion further and given the results of his researches in an article called “Computing Machines and Intelligence,” together with a brief account of a “child-machine” which he has attempted to educate . I intend to discuss this article in some detail and examine his claim that “machines can think.”
