An ai of baseline human equivalent intelligence and sapience. Also known as a TTP (Turing Test Passing) entity/machine.

The first turingrade AI machines were developed in the first century AT as the result of several different development paths, but were very naive entities when first constructed. At first turingrade AIs were limited to physically large computer substrates, so were not mobile; the first fully mobile human-equivalent robots were not developed until many decades later.

Note that (except for an association with Atomic Age mathematician Alan Turing) this term is not related to the concept of the Turing Machine, which is an idealised concept in information technology describing a theoretical computer which manipulates symbols on an infinite strip of tape.
