Turing Tests with Turing Machines

Comparative tests work by finding the difference (or the absence of difference) between a reference subject and an evaluee. The Turing Test, in its standard interpretation, takes (a subset of) the human species as a reference. Motivated by recent findings and developments in the area of machine intelligence evaluation, we discuss what it would be like to have a Turing Test where the reference and the interrogator subjects are replaced by Turing Machines. This question sets the focus on several issues that are usually disregarded when dealing with the Turing Test, such as the degree of intelligence of reference and interrogator, the role of imitation (and not only prediction) in intelligence, its view from the perspective of game theory and others. Around these issues, this paper finally brings the Turing Test to the realm of Turing machines.

Two objects are independent if they do not affect each other. Independence is wellunderstood in classical information theory, but less in algorithmic information theory. Working in the framework of algorithmic information theory, the paper proposes two types of independence for arbitrary infinite binary sequences and studies their properties. Our two proposed notions of independence have some of the intuitive properties that one naturally expects. For example, for every sequence x, the set of sequences that are independent (in the weaker of the two senses) with x has measure one. For both notions of independence we investigate to what extent pairs of independent sequences, can be effectively constructed via Turing reductions (from one or more input sequences). In this respect, we prove several impossibility results. For example, it is shown that there is no effective way of producing from an arbitrary sequence with positive constructive Hausdorff dimension two sequences that are independent (even in the weaker type of independence) and have superlogarithmic complexity. Finally, a few conjectures and open questions are discussed.

Our main aim is to propose a new characterization for the software development process. We suggest that software development methodology has some limits. These limits are a clue that software development process is more subjective and empirical than objective and formal. We use Kolmogorov complexity to develop the formal argument and to outline the informal conclusions. Kolmogorov complexity is based on the size in bits of the smallest e ective description of an object and is a suitable quantitative measure of the object's information content.
Measuring Cognitive Abilities of Machines, Humans and NonHuman Animals in a Unified Way: towards Universal Psychometrics

We present and develop the notion of ‘universal psychometrics’ as a subject of study, and eventually a discipline, that focusses on the measurement of cognitive abilities for the machine kingdom, which comprises any kind of individual or collective, either artificial, biological or hybrid. Universal psychometrics can be built, of course, upon the experience, techniques and methodologies from (human) psychometrics, comparative cognition and related areas. Conversely, the perspective and techniques which are being developed in the area of machine intelligence measurement using (algorithmic) information theory can be of much broader applicability and implication outside artificial intelligence. This general approach to universal psychometrics spurs the reunderstanding of most (if not all) of the big issues about the measurement of cognitive abilities, and creates a new foundation for (re)defining and mathematically formalising the concept of cognitive task, evaluable subject, interface, task choice, difficulty, agent response curves, etc. We introduce the notion of a universal cognitive test and discuss whether (and when) it may be necessary for exploring the machine kingdom. On the issue of intelligence and very general abilities, we also get some results and connections with the related notions of nofreelunch theorems and universal priors.

We present the informationtheoretic incompleteness theorems that arise in a theory of programsize complexity based on something close to real LISP. The complexity of a formal axiomatic system is defined to be the minimum size in characters of a LISP definition of the proofchecking function associated with the formal system. Using this concrete and easy to understand definition, we show (a) that it is difficult to exhibit complex Sexpressions, and (b) that it is difficult to determine the bits of the LISP halting probability\Omega LISP . We also construct improved versions\Omega 0 LISP and\Omega 00 LISP of the LISP halting probability that asymptotically have maximum possible LISP complexity.
