Yes it's specific, to pass the Turing Test the machine must be
indistinguishable from a very specific type of human being, an INTELLIGENT
one; no computer can quite do that yet although for a long time they've
been able  to be  indistinguishable from a comatose human being.

If the goal of Artificial Intelligence is not a machine that behaves like a
Intelligent human being then what the hell is the goal?

The central problem and goal of AI couldn't be more clear, figuring out how
to make something that's smart, that is to say behaves intelligently.

And you've told me that you don't use behavior to determine which of your
acquaintances are geniuses and which are imbeciles, but you still haven't
told me what method you do use.
