What did Alan Turing believe?


Alan Turing did not express his specific beliefs directly in the clips I retrieved, but his work has been discussed in relation to artificial intelligence (AI). Turing famously introduced the concept of thinking machines in his work, questioning whether machines could perform tasks traditionally associated with human intelligence. He was interested in the possibilities of machines simulating human thought processes, which is foundational to modern interpretations of artificial intelligence 1 .
