Sentinela del Norte (1985) is a Chilean rapper and literature scholar. He’s known for being part of the cult hip hop band Colectivo Etéreo and for his career in the local rap and electronic scene. For his most recent album, Parte del Paisaje (Part of the Landscape, Discos Pegaos, 2019), he created the song Mr Darcy se Somete al Test de Turing (Mr Darcy Takes the Turing Test), a critique on aspirational and vacuous social behaviors. We had a conversation about this song, its inspiration from British figures such as computer science pioneer Alan Turing and John Darcy, character by Jane Austen in Pride and Prejudice. We also discussed the possibility of a new version of the Turing test that could determine degrees of humanity in individuals.
