Accessible academic paper discussing relative lack of progress in artificial intelligence. Argues that the Turing test is the wrong benchmark: “The Turing Test has a serious problem: it relies too much on deception. A computer program passes the test if it can fool an interrogator into thinking she is dealing with a person not a computer. The ability to fool people is interesting, no doubt, but not really what is at issue here”. (PDF) (3,500 words)
