Yes- seems like the Turing test might be the ultimate. If you can't tell a person and computer apart from having a conversation, that would seem to say a lot...

Can a computer and its program even pass the Turing test yet in any
general area of discussion and not something like Weizenbaum's ELIZA
which attempts to appear to be a Rogerian psychotherapist
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Person-centered_psychotherapy>? Even if
it can, the Turing test may be necessary but not sufficient.
