I wanted to talk to someone about Artificial Intelligence and I thought, why not ask an artificial intelligence?
My guest today is ChatGpt.
So, Chat, may I call you Chat?
Tell me about the origins of computing.
Will computers ever supplant the Human Race?
That’s what I thought you’d say.

The Imitation Game is a 2014 movie about Alan Turing and his role in developing a computer to break the Enigma Code.
It was thought that only an electronic device could process the traffic the Nazis were sending over the Enigma decoder before the code was changed.
Turing came up with what he called the Turing Test. It asks: If you were conversing blindly with “someone”, particularly text, could you figure out whether they were human or not? I use chat boxes on some technical support websites I frequent, and I often try to challenge their humanity.
Chat, what do you think about the Turing Test?
