My Robot is Smarter than Your Robot - On the Need for a Total Turing Test for Robots
AISB/IACAP Symposium - Revisiting Turing and his Test: Comprehensiveness, Qualia, and the Real World, 2012
In this position paper we argue for the need of a Turing-like test for robots. While many robotic demonstrators show impressive, but often very restricted abilities, it is very difficult to assess how intelligent such a robot can be considered to be. We thus propose a test, comprised of a (simulated) environment, a robot, a human tele-operator and a human interrogator, that allows to assess whether a robot behaves as intelligently as a human tele-operator (using the same sensory input as the robot) with respect to a given task.
