'Suppose that you are hired as an expert on affective computing, to test if a machine really "has" emotions. Describe two tests you would perform with the machine. You do not need to limit your interaction to text-only as in the Turing test, but you can assume that if you wish. State any assumptions you are making. What are the strengths of your two tests? What are some weaknesses of your tests? Feel free to try out your test with Alicebot.'

- http://www.hud.ac.uk/hhs/dbs/psysoc/research/SSCRG/chatbot.htm Using a chatbot conversation to enhance the learning of social theory by Paul Dagg. "AliceBot is not a rule-based system. There is no need to go through a very complicated elicitation process with experts to produce the knowledge base. The focus can therefore be much more on the quality and accuracy of the information and the way it is presented to student users. Moreover, the knowledge base can be added to and amended by later developers."

'While in the classical approach intelligence was viewed essentially as information processing taking place in the brain, more recently the insight that the interaction with the environment is of central importance is gaining more and more acceptance. This has lead to the metaphor of embodiment, which means that intelligence is always a property of an entire organism, which often leads to surprising insights. The class provides a systematic introduction to "New Artificial Intelligence" (also called embodied AI/Cognitive Science). '

" we will broach other topics that have not been sufficiently elaborated, such as scaffolding, social interaction, emergence of language, ontogenetic development, morphology, and humanoid robots. Moreover, we will discuss some philosophical issues related to the .brain in a vat. and .downloading."

For example, CYC knows that trees are usually outdoors, that once people die they stop buying things, and that glasses of liquid should be carried rightside-up.'--John Sutton

- Philosophy 3 The Turing Test 'Turing doesn't say very much about who's supposed to be judging these tests. But that's important, because it's very easy to fool computer neophytes into thinking that some program is really intelligent, even if the program is in fact totally stupid. One early computer program called ELIZA pretended to be a psychotherapist holding "conversations" with its patients. ELIZA was a very simple program. (In fact, you can nowadays get a version of ELIZA for your Palm Pilot.) Nobody who understands the program is at all tempted to call it intelligent. What the program does is this. It searches the user's input for keywords like the word "father." If it finds a keyword, it issues back some canned response, like "Do you often think about your father?" You can try ELIZA out for yourself. A more recent and more sophisticated program which works by the same principles is ALICE'
