  1. Turing didn’t say it was, or would be, intelligent. That was the point. What he said was that you needed to get away from the idea of defining the term “intelligence”. His point was that it a computer passsed the Turing test it didn’t matter it it was truly “intelligent” or not. It is a black box that you don’t need to look inside. In other words he turned it from a semantic argument to a pragmatic test.
