Turing Test: Flawed Concept or Holy Grail?
Little background information about turing himself
Quotation about the Turing Test
Any AI smart enough to pass a Turing test is smart enough to know to fail it.
Alan Turing 1950 imitation game
Can machines think?
Meaningless question- can they mimic human behavior and thoughts?
Chinese room argument
Machine has advantage
humans aren't computers
Only need to last 5 minutes
Objections and arguments disputing
Thought is a part of the soul
Up to God who has a soul, thus ability to think
Descartes Mind body dualism
Turing Mind as machine
Head in the Sand
Machines could take over
Humans no longer superior
Machines could think better
Limitations to all machines
have begun to create music (iamus)
indistinguishable from humans
begun to write poetry, not very good yet
Lucas Penrose Constraint
Are humans free?
Thinking requires self consciousness
Presence of mind
can be used as a measuring tool
how much closer have machines gotten to passing
Provides measurable evidence
Broad Subject matter
Can question the computer on anything
Adults not as easily replicated
Test for comprehension and learning
Winograd schema challenge
requires use of word knowledge and reasoning to solve the problem
Ada Lovelace, first programmer
only when computers originate things should they be believed to have minds.
Visual Turing Test
uses binary questions to probe a system’s ability to identify attributes and relationships in addition to recognizing objects.
Inverted Turing Test
Can the machine find the human
Simple example- captcha
Using a combination of tests to determine human like intelligence
most thorough approach
Taking into account unintelligent human behavior
Challenges and Opportunities
Trickery or Intelligence?
programs designed to deceive
Turing test recently passed by chatbot
designed to be a teenager
limitations due to age and language
Quote from Turing in original paper
“The machine (programmed for playing the game) would not attempt to give the right answers to the arithmetic problems. It would deliberately introduce mistakes in a manner calculated to confuse the interrogator.”
Doesn't specify level of intelligence, needs improvement
Why just people intelligence?
Flaws in the test
Summay of Key Points
