Call For Papers

We invite submissions for Minds & Machines’s special issue on "Rethinking, Reworking, and Revolutionising The Turing Test".

The special issue focuses on the role that the Turing Test has played, and above all can still play, in artificial intelligence research. Ever since it was proposed in 1950, the Turing Test has been a major focus of philosophers and computer scientists alike. Focus on creating AI that can pass the Turing Test has been matched by debate about the adequacy of the Turing Test as a useful measure. Today, the Turing Test is more relevant than ever, as big data and machine learning approaches have made natural-language processing AIs both much more sophisticated and much more prevalent in everyday experience than ever. The issue will address questions such as what modern technological advances can tell us about the Turing Test, what the test can actually measure, and which properties and abilities could be identified with well-designed variations of the Turing Test.

Example topics include, but are not limited to:
Objections to the Turing Test;
How difficult is the Turing Test?;
Variations of the Turing Test;
The Turing Test and consciousness;
The future of the Turing Test.
