From the buzzing in Turing’s head to machine intelligence contests
Shah, H. and Warwick, K. (2010) From the buzzing in Turing’s head to machine intelligence contests. In: TCIT 2010: Towards a Comprehensive Intelligence Test - Reconsidering the Turing Test for the 21st Century, 29 Mar-1 Apr 2010, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK.
This paper presents an analysis of three major contests for machine intelligence. We conclude that a new era for Turing’s test requires a fillip in the guise of a committed sponsor, not unlike DARPA, funders of the successful 2007 Urban Challenge.
