[1] Describe the Turing test. Describe in detail how it works and what its goal is. What counts as a pass and what does pass mean? If a woman passes the test what does Turing think that proves?

[2] Describe Functionalism and why it makes possible future artificial intelligence

[3] Describe and explain Searle’s “Chinese room” counterexample to functionalism and the argument it illustrates.
