A Turing Test for X

Humans continue to build machines which are increasingly better and better at tasks we once thought only a human could do. Attempts to compare human actions to computer actions are sometimes referred to as "Turing Tests for _____". Is this an appropriate name? What are some noteworthy examples? Find out in this post.
