The TuringTest module serves as a human-computer interface between the AI Mind and one or more human users. Its purpose is to provide avenues of communication between man and machine. In the most primitive AI Minds, the keyboard and the screen of a computer are the main interface. The tactile keyboard serves as a substitute for auditory input, and the monitor screen serves as a substitute for voice output -- unless speech synthesis is channeling output through a loudspeaker or a headphone.
Earlier in AiEvolution, the same mind-module was called HCI for Human-Computer Interaction, before the module names were modified to serve as clickable links on the wiki-pages of the AI documentation. Renaming HCI as TuringTest serves the purpose of making users and coders aware of the well-known test for AI functionality named after the AI pioneer Alan Turing.
The visibly operating TuringTest interface module is somewhat easier to troubleshoot and debug than the more hidden majority of AI mind-modules, because any glitch or software error will tend to show up immediately. Typical problems may involve timing where the rsvp variable is counting down too quickly if the host computer has an extremely fast central processing unity (CPU). The AI coder or installation supervisor may have to adjust the pertinent values.
More subtle problems may arise in connection with the happenstance timing of when a human user begins entering input into the AI Mind or how fast or how slow a user tries to communicate across the keyboard. Once again, the AI coder-in-charge may need to tweak some values not only in the TuringTest module but possibly in other modules involving input and output.
