I read a cool article: http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg20727703.200-sleep-control-cells-allow-blind-mice-to-see.html

In which there was discussion of Philosophical Zombies: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophical_zombie

And that got me thinking about the Tachikomas and their ghosts.

Since the goal of most AI is to create a device that can pass a Turing Test ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turing_test ) is there any way that you can tell the difference between an AI that can pass the TT, but is a PZ and one that actually has a ghost?


when I get more time later I'll format the links more friendly.

EDIT: fixed annoying typo in title
