It's called the Turing Test, an annual event in which the most advanced computer programs try to fool a panel of judges into mistaking them for real people. And real people compete to try to win the coveted "Most Human Human Award." In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, we'll meet Brian Christian, a Turing test participant. Also, Sherry Turkle on why we expect more from technology and less from each other.
