Prof Michael Grüninger (Mechanical & Industrial Engineering, University of Toronto)

Ontologies for the Physical Turing Test

The Turing Test was originally proposed as a way of evaluating how well a software system represents human intelligence, based on natural language conversations. More recently there has been discussion about generalizations of the Turing Test to include other aspects of intelligence, such as perception, reasoning, and action. The Physical Turing Test combines these ideas into challenge problems based on the interaction between intelligent agents and the physical world, such as building objects from a set of parts using verbal, written and illustrated instructions. In this talk, we will explore the ontologies that are needed in order to successfully build systems that can pass the Physical Turing Test.
