The idea is simple. As a twist on the Turing Test. Why not instead of having human to AI bot conversation. You have human to human conversation where one of them use the AI bot as inspiration. That is. The response from one of the persons are fed to the AI bot and its answer is fed to another person for rewriting. The resulting response is then presented to the other person.
If this is successful. If a judge thinks both parties are humans then one can split the problem of machine intelligence into two parts. One is the crude answer and one is the refinement. It could very well be that all you need is a primitive artificial intelligence as enough information for generating of real intelligence. Hmm, makes me wonder if its true that we are all small deep inside.
