Answering subcognitive Turing Test questions: a reply to French

Peter D. Turney
2001 Journal of experimental and theoretical artificial intelligence (Print)  
Robert French has argued that a disembodied computer is incapable of passing a Turing Test that includes subcognitive questions.  ...  In particular, I show how it is possible to answer a sample of subcognitive questions taken from French, by issuing queries to a search engine that indexes about 350 million Web pages.  ...  Acknowledgements Thanks to Arnold Smith, Joel Martin, Louise Linney, Norm Vinson, Michael Littman, Eibe Frank, David Nadeau, and Hassan Masum for helpful comments.  ...

Peeking behind the screen: the unsuspected power of the standard Turing Test

Robert M. French
2000 Journal of experimental and theoretical artificial intelligence (Print)  
We show that the use of "subcognitive" questions allows the standard Turing Test to indirectly probe the human subcognitive associative concept network built up over a lifetime of experience with the world  ...  No computer that had not experienced the world as we humans had could pass a rigorously administered standard Turing Test.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported in part by a research grant PAI 4-19 from the Belgian government.  ...

Subcognition and the Limits of the TuringTest

ROBERT M. FRENCH
1990 Mind  
I would also like to thank David Chalmers, Melanie Mitchell, David Moser, and the editor of Mind for their remarks. Endnotes  ...  Acknowledgments I especially wish to thank Daniel Dennett and Douglas Hofstadter for their invaluable comments on the ideas and emphasis of this paper.  ...  In like manner, any sufficiently broad set of questions making up a Turing Test would necessarily contain questions that rely on subcognitive associations for their answers.  ...

Minimum Intelligent Signal Test (MIST) as an Alternative to the Turing Test

Paweł Łupkowski, Patrycja Jurowska
2019 Diametros  
The aim of this paper is to present and discuss the issue of the adequacy of the Minimum Intelligent Signal Test (MIST) as an alternative to the Turing Test.  ...  Two of the main claims about MIST are that (1) MIST questions exploit commonsense knowledge and as a result are expected to be easy to answer for human beings and difficult for computer programs; and that  ...  Turney in his paper "Answering Subcognitive Turing Test Questions: A Reply to French." 26 The PMI-IR stands for Pointwise Mutual Information (PMI) and Information Retrieval (IR).  ...

Turing Test: 50 Years Later [chapter]

Ayse Pinar Saygin, Ilyas Cicekli, Varol Akman
2003 The Turing Test  
The Turing Test is one of the most disputed topics in artificial intelligence, philosophy of mind, and cognitive science. This paper is a review of the past 50 years of the Turing Test.  ...  We conclude that the Turing Test has been, and will continue to be, an influential and controversial topic.  ...  To establish this result, French considers "subcognitive" questions, i.e., questions that reveal low-level cognitive structure. 21 French argues that any sufficiently broad set of questions for a TT  ...

Questioning Turing test [article]

Nicola Michele Damassino, University Of Edinburgh, Mark Sprevak, Alistair Isaac
2020
In light of these two problems, I propose a new version of the TT, the Questioning Turing Test (QTT).  ...  The Turing Test (TT) is an experimental paradigm to test for intelligence, where an entity's intelligence is inferred from its ability, during a text-based conversation, to be recognized as a human by  ...  French (2000a) writes: "the use of 'subcognitive' questions allows the standard Turing Test to indirectly probe the human subcognitive associative concept network built up over a lifetime of experience  ...

The Chinese Room Argument in the Context of the Rational Action Theory

The article describes a well-known thought experiment of J.  ...  if the machines passed the Turing test ideally, they would still comprehend neither the questions addressed to them nor their own answers."  ...  In the Turing test a person playing a role of an expert asks questions in a hard copy format and in the same way receives answers from two interlocutors invisible to him, one of whom is a person, the other  ...

The Chinese Room: Just Say "No!"

Robert French
unpublished
And I believe that the answer, in parallel with recent arguments that claim that it would be impossible for a machine to pass the Turing Test unless it had experienced the world as we humans have, is no  ...  Rather, the question should be, "Does the very idea of such a Room and a person in the Room who is able to answer questions in perfect Chinese while not understanding any Chinese make any sense at all?  ...  The Interrogator would come to the Turing Test and ask both candidates the questions on her Subcognitive Question List.  ...
