Artificial Stupidity

“Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine. “

My title doesn’t reference my feelings for Morten Tyldum’s The Imitation Game. I quite enjoyed it, having had some familiarity with Alan Turing both from a WWII standpoint, and from an artificial intelligence standpoint. I had some issues with the jumping around in time, which interfered with the narrative, but overall the film adequately delivered its story. Cumberbatch, Knightley and Goode were all effective. It was a pleasure to see Tywin Lannister himself, Charles Dance, continuing to spit fire.

Oh, right, the title. It’s my favorite element of the Turing Test. Sometimes you can tell what’s human from what isn’t by searching for the little mistaeks that we make every day.
