  • 25 years ago, most AI researchers were motivated by goals of “human-level” AI
  • Since then
    • scope has narrowed to problems that are both more feasible and more practical
    • we have developed a large body of technical tools and sounder theoretical and experimental methodology
  • Are we ready to go back and try to do human-level AI?
  • Do our new tools and techniques put us in a better position than we were in before?
  • Are there other “big AI” goals we should be aiming at?
  • What challenge problems would help us address these questions?
  • Note: these problems weren’t designed to be necessarily amenable to competitions or short-term evaluation, but to stretch us scientifically
challenge problem desiderata
Challenge-problem Desiderata
  • Graded series of problems
  • Whole problem should force a general solution
  • Integration of
    • perception
    • communication
    • action
  • Involvement of learning
  • Difference of opinion:
    • focus on human-level AI; “whole agents”
    • focus on super-human tools

Four HLAI Problems
  • Real robot
  • Simulated robot
  • Trading agent
  • Office assistant
robot cook
Robot Cook
  • Make breakfast in any kitchen
  • Short order cook
    • perception and manipulation
    • cultural expectations about locations of things
    • time pressure and flexibility
simulated robots
Simulated Robots
  • Disaster relief
    • New environment you have not seen before
    • Exploration and mapping; putting out fires, dealing with other threats
    • Time-critical; competing goals; novel situations; tasked by controller, but not centrally controlled
    • Robocup rescue simulator?

Automated Trading Corporation
  • Exists on the web
  • Negotiates contracts
  • Insurance contract (no prior stake in order to evaluate)
  • How do you write contracts
    • insurance
    • guarantees of credit
office assistant
Office Assistant
  • Reads your office documents (mail, ppt, etc)
  • Listens to and watches your meetings
  • Carries out tasks for you:
    • purchasing
    • filing
    • travel planning
  • Takes initiative to remind you of things, reschedule meetings, etc.
  • System has to model human’s state of mind

Big-picture, Non-human AI
  • Leverage the way the world is changing around us; and help to change it
    • new sources of social interaction data
    • new sources of scientific data
    • interesting opportunities in these areas
    • how people interact with technology
cognitive google
Cognitive Google
  • Tell me about “shape matching in proteins”
  • Look for people who might have written down something interesting about that topic.
  • “find someone who had been to Barcelona of my age and my interest”
  • Community of Intelligent research assistants
high level perception
High-level Perception
  • Learn to describe complex scenes in natural language and answer questions about them
    • Example: observe someone assembling a piece of furniture. Then be able to show someone else how to do the same (or similar) assembly tasks.
    • Example: recognize when someone is taking out cash from an ATM. Generalize to all ATMs.
  • Watch TV:
    • Infer plans + goals from video
    • Write soap-opera summaries
    • Describe sports events
not easy
Not Easy!
  • All of these problems are very hard
  • Simple versions can be made
  • They will focus our long-term thinking
