Common Sense, the Turing Test, and the Quest for Real AI (MIT Press)
Thursday, 25 January 2018

This book seeks to illustrate what artificial intelligence can teach us about the mind. If thinking is a computational process, then how can computation illuminate thinking? Author Hector J.Levesque is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto, and in this book he examines the research challenges facing AI, in particular how common sense reasoning remains an open problem.

Levesque considers the role of language in learning. He argues that a computer program that passes the famous Turing Test could be a mindless zombie, and he proposes another way to test for intelligence, the Winograd Schema Test, developed by Levesque and his colleagues. “If our goal is to understand intelligent behavior, we had better understand the difference between making it and faking it,” he observes.
