Funny :eek: lol ? Some of those are downright SCARY to me :confused: ! I don't know what I'd do if I got asked some of those lol... a couple of my favs...

What is wrong with society today?

How does the Constitution of the United States start?
(could somebody please answer this one, just in case ;))

On a scale of 0-100 rate the effort you put into the following: undergrad, grad school, med school. And then tell me how much you have in reserve to put into a residency program.
(story of my life lol)

I see that you are interested in skiing. Please explain to me the physics of the new side-cut skis.

What would be the most telling question you would ask of a residency applicant? Now answer it.

I swear I'm such an OCD type person that I'm almost tempted to devote a day to coming up with good answers for all of 'em lol...

I hope they make me play operation... I always win at that game, they would realize after seeing my performance that I have the skills to become a world reknown surgeon and hire me on the spot ;)

"We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and ensure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

That's the preamble, baby! Known it by heart (as long as I sing it) since I was like 5. Thank you School House Rock!

How about this one (which I actually got asked!)

"Gary Kasparov was beaten by Deep Blue in chess. Which was more intelligent, Kasparov or the computer?"

Very simple: I threw the Turing Test at him!

OK-- the mathematician Alan Turing postulated that a machine/computer could be considered intelligent if it could fool somebody it was having a conversation (virtual or real) with that it was not a machine but human. I said that since deep Blue did not satisfy the Turing Test, it could not be considered intelligent in the first place.

But the turing test determines whether an AI is conscious, it doesnt gauge intelligence, no? Consciousness and intelligence are by no means related.

What exactly do you mean by "conscious"? I presume you're using that as in "sentient" or as in "sapient"? I'm not sure whether the Turing Test measures sentience or sapience. I agree that it is not a measure of intelligence per se, but it is a marker of Artificial Intelligence which in itself is not Intelligence but Sentience.

(Love this discussion)
