Contact:

Dear all,

We have received a large number of requests for extensions. In response, the organizing committee decided to extend the deadline for all formats including papers, competition proposals, system demonstrations, etc to 31 January 2010. All formats of submissions are welcomed. We particularly encourage reflective papers on machine intelligence competitions, competition or new test proposals, and system demonstrations. 

Kind regards,
Aladdin Ayesh

On behalf of the organizing committee


Call for Paper
Towards a Comprehensive Intelligence Test (TCIT)
Reconsidering the Turing Test for the 21st Century Symposium
http://www.cse.dmu.ac.uk/~aayesh/TuringTestRevisited/

At AISB2010 Convention
Leicester, UK
29th March  1st April 2010

 

2010 marks the 60th anniversary of the publication of Turings paper, in which he outlined his test for machine intelligence. Turing suggested that the possibility of genuine machine thought should be replaced by a simple behaviour-based process in which a human interrogator converses blindly with a machine and another human. Although the precise nature of the test has been debated, the standard interpretation is that if, after five minutes interaction, the interrogator cannot reliably tell which respondent is the human and which the machine then the machine can be qualified as a 'thinking machine'. Through the years, this test has become synonymous as 'the benchmark' for Artificial Intelligence in popular culture. However, new advances in cognitive sciences and consciousness studies suggest it may be useful to revisit this test. The aim of this symposium is to reconsider the Turing Test in the light of current advances in Artificial Intelligence, cognitive systems, and other competitions that provide insights into different types of intelligence, with the goal of outlining a new test - or suite of tests - that may more usefully be employed to evaluate 'machine intelligence' at the dawn of the 21st century.
