The well-known Turing test was first proposed by Alan Turing (1950) as a practical way to defuse what seemed to him to be a pointless argument about whether or not machines could think. He put forward that, instead of formulating such a vague question, we should ask whether a machine would be capable of producing behavior that we would say required thought in people. The sort of behavior he had in mind was participating in a natural conversation in English over a teletype in what he called the Imitation Game. The idea, roughly, was the following: if an interrogator was unable to tell after a long, free flowing and unrestricted conversation with a machine whether s/he was dealing with a person or a machine, then we should be prepared to say that the machine was thinking. The Turing test does have some troubling aspects though.
