How can an AI demonstrate purely through chat that it is an AI, and not a human?

Some of these things are falsifiable, for example people have already made programs that can detect letters from acoustics, and trivia questions would similarly be pretty easy, but the idea of asking a question that requires complicated processing to find the answer and requiring a superhumanly fast response seems like it might be the best. The trick would be that it would have to be a question that couldn't have been answered in advance (question can't be predictable, so that a person or organization could have prepared answers).

So it sounds like you'd need to be able to generate a question that 1. requires human-level or above reasoning, including generalization 2. is too complex for a human to quickly answer 3. cannot be predicted in form or content to an extent that would allow its answer to be cached in advance

I remembered after writing this that there are also scenes where the AI provides people with schematics for advanced technology in return for labor; in these situations, it isn't trying to prove that it's an advanced AI though, and even if it were trying to use this as a proof there's no way to prove that the technologies it provides weren't actually developed by humans, even if they were advanced.
