More About The Most Human Human by Brian Christian
 
 
 
Overview

Each year, the AI community convenes to administer the famous (and famously controversial) Turing test, pitting sophisticated software programs against humans to determine if a computer can -think.- The machine that most often fools the judges wins the Most Human Computer Award. But there is also a prize, strange and intriguing, for the -Most Human Human.-
Brian Christian--a young poet with degrees in computer science and philosophy--was chosen to participate in a recent competition. This playful, profound book is not only a testament to his efforts to be deemed more human than a computer, but also a rollicking exploration of what it means to be human in the first place.
