Blog Entry: Artificial Dumbness
2005 September 16, 09:16 PM
I've never formally submitted a paper for publication. The closest I
came was in April 1998 when I almost submitted this abstract -- Blondes and Boors: How Artificial
Dumbness Will Pass the Turing Test.
The 1979 Peter Sellers' movie Being There
(http://imdb.com/title/tt0078841/), which I
hadn't seen when I wrote the "abstract" above, makes the same point
much more eloquently. Roger Ebert's 1997 review of the film
is also excellent reading (Ebert's earlier 1980 review isn't as good).
