Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The 25th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-16) marked the first running of the Winograd Schema Challenge, sponsored by Nuance Communications. The Winograd Schema Challenge was originally conceived by Hector Levesque (Levesque 2011; Levesque, Davis, and Morgenstern, 2012) as an alternative to the Turing test that has clear criteria for success and doesn't rely on deception. Six systems were entered, exploiting a variety of technologies. None of the systems were able to advance from the first round to the second and final round.
