Literally: "Data about data" In data processing, meta-data is definitional data that provides information about or documentation of other data managed within an application or environment. For example, meta-data would document data about data elements or attributes, (name, size, data type, etc) and data about records or data structures (length, fields, columns, etc) and data about data (where it is located, how it is associated, ownership, etc.). Meta-data may include descriptive information about the context, quality and condition, or characteristics of the data.
The Turing Test’s imitation game is traditionally played by three parties: a human person (A), a computer (B), and a human interrogator (C). A and B are in a room apart. By communicating through a teletype connection, it is the interrogator’s goal to determine, which of his two partners in the room apart is human and which is the computer. Hence the question is: Can (B) be made to play satisfactorily the part of (A), such that (C) mistakes the one for the other?
