Mustafa Suleyman, a co-founder of Google's AI research lab DeepMind, thinks AI chatbots like ChatGPT should be tested on their ability to turn $100,000 into $1 million in a "modern Turing test" that measures human-like intelligence. 

Suleyman dismisses the traditional Turing test in a new book, The Coming Wave (Penguin Random House, 2023), because it's "unclear whether this is a meaningful milestone or not," Bloomberg reported Tuesday.

Instead of comparing AI's intelligence to humans, Suleyman proposes tasking a bot with short-term goals and tasks that it can complete with little human input. He says AI bots should pass a test in which it receives a $100,000 seed investment and has to turn it into $1 million. As part of the test, the bot must research an e-commerce business idea, develop a plan for the product, find a manufacturer, and then sell the item. 

He expects AI to achieve this milestone in the next two years.
