In 1934 Alan M. Turing argued that machines could imitate thought and,
in the essay "Computing Machinery and Intelligence", he proposed what
is now known as the Turing Test. A computer and a human are compared
by a panel of judges, who address the same questions to both and review
their answers. If the judges cannot make distinctions between the two
answers, the machine may be considered intelligent.
The Turing test for decades has represented the best calling card for
popularizing Artificial Intelligence worldwide. Nowadays, ideas, theories,
techniques developed in the research area of Artificial Intelligence are
widely applied for producing games, satellite navigators, human-computer
interfaces, web applications, automated voice responders, etc.
For celebrating the
100th anniversary of Alan Turing's birth,
the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence
organizes a workshop aimed at divulging the practical uses of Artificial Intelligence.
To this aim, we call for demonstrators (e.g. videos), demos, proposals,
systems exploiting AI theories and techniques, short papers which present
ideas, and which are written in such a way to make them accessible to a
broad public. Prizes will be awarded to different categories of submissions.
The workshop will be organized as a poster session. Each contribution
will have some space for a poster and demos and systems will be shown
to the public. The best contributions will additionally be presented
during a plenary session of AI*IA 2012.
