The neo-Turing Test is conceived as a strengthened version of behaviourism that avoids classical problems assocated with behavioursism as well as problems associated with the original Turing Test. Rather than rely on human judges, it merely requires:
"a sensible sequence of verbal responses to verbal stimuli".
The test also avoids problems associated with dipositional analysis by substituting 'capacities' for dispositions.
"Intelligence (or more accurately conversational intelligence) is the capacity to produce a sensible sequence of verbal responses to a sequence of verbal stimuli, whatever they may be".
The neo-Turing test is a 'straw man' proposed by Ned Block (1981) to allow him to argue that even a beefed-up version of behaviourism will fall prey to psychologism.
