The Imitation Game

I propose to consider the question, “Can machines think?… Are there imaginable digital computers that would do well in the imitation game?”’  Alan Turing, Computing Machinery and Intelligence, 1950

This title is published alongside the exhibition, The Imitation Game at Manchester Art Gallery (13 February – 5 June 2016) where 8 international contemporary artists explore the theme of machines and the imitation of life.

It is inspired by Alan Turing’s Turing Test, devised to test a computer’s ability to imitate human thought. Featuring work by artists Ed Atkins, James Capper, Paul Granjon, Tove Kjellmark, Lynn Hershman Leeson, David Link, Mari Velonaki and Yu-Chen Wang, the exhibition is curated by Clare Gannaway.
