Abstract

The Turing Test is usually seen as the ultimate goal of Strong Artificial Intelligence (Strong AI). Mainly because of two reasons: first, it is assumed that if we can build a machine that is indistinguishable from a human is because we have completely discovered how a human mind is created; second, such an intelligent machine could replace or collaborate with humans in any imaginable complex task. Furthermore, if such a machine existed it would probably surpass humans in many complex tasks (both physically and cognitively). But do we really need such a machine? Is it possible to build such a system in the short-term? Do we have to settle for the now classical narrow AI approaches? Isn’t there a more reasonable medium term challenge that AI community should aim at? In this paper, we use the paradigmatic Turing test to discuss the implications of aiming too high in the AI research arena; we analyze key factors involved in the design and implementation of variants of the Turing test and we also propose a medium term plausible agenda towards the effective development of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) from the point of view of artificial cognitive architectures.
