BAI2013 keynote talk: Kevin Warwick - "Sex, Lies and Games: Turing Style" conference "Beyond AI: Artificial Golem Intelligence" (BAI2013), http://beyondai.zcu.cz/ Abstract: An important aspect of human intelligence is our communication. Machine performance in the area of mimicking human communication, is a well studied aspect of AI, both in terms of natural language understanding and philosophy. OK so we know what the Turing test is essentially all about. But humans are complex organisms, and this is especially apparent when we communicate. How can a machine hope to appear to encapsulate some of those complexities? Through a study of practical Turing tests, looking at actual discourses, we take a look in particular here at issues such as gender identification in conversation and the effects of lying. In doing so we investigate further the usefulness of the Turing test (originally titled Turing's Imitation Game), and consider what it actually tells us both about the machines and humans involved.
