What is the Turing Test ?

Notes:

Turing Test :

Mr. Alan Turing one of the famous computer scientists proposed the Turing Test in the year 1950.
He proposed that: Turing test is used to determine “whether or not machines can think intelligently like humans?"

The basic configuration of Turing test is:

There will be a human interrogator on one side of the wall and the other side a machine and a human. The interrogator is going to ask a question via teletype; both the machine and human present on the other side will answer to the question via teletype. The interrogator should be able distinguish between the machine and human responses. If he can not be able to distinguish (the answers provided by the machine or the human) then the machine passes the test and the machine is considered as intelligent (or thinking intelligently like humans).

But in the year 1980, Mr. John Searle proposed the “Chinese room argument”.
He argued that Turing test could not be used to determine “whether or not a machine is considered as intelligent (or thinking intelligently like humans)?".
