Turing Machine

Turing Machine
   The Claim That Man Can Be Understood as a Turing Machine
   [W]hen Minsky or Turing claims that man can be understood as a Turing machine, they must mean that a digital computer can reproduce a human behavior . . . by processing data representing facts about the world using logical operations that can be reduced to matching, classifying and Boolean operations. (Dreyfus, 1972, p. 192)
