I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
It's fascinating hearing about Turing's attempts to advocate for giving machines something similar to the amount of leeway we give humans. For example, we don't expect humans to know how to do things without first getting some kind of training or instruction, and we don't expect humans to always get everything right.
But yeah, now the author has gotten to Turing's ideas on how a machine might be taught, and it's old fashioned child rearing strategies, with some form of punishment being viewed as better and more effective at inspiring change and growth in the machine than praise. As far as this part goes, I prefer Ted Chiang's The Lifecycle of Software Objects.
