Turing Test, Chinese Room Argument, Symbol Grounding Problem. Meanings in Artificial Agents.
Turing Test (TT), Chinese Room Argument (CRA) & Symbol Grounding Problem (SGP) are basic tools for investigating the possibilities for artificial agents (AAs) to behave as humans.
An analysis of these three tools has been proposed under the banner of “meaning generation” (AISB/IACAP 2012 presentation). It is shown that the capability for an AA to generate human like meanings can be a reading of TT, CRA & SGP (1). We use the Meaning Generator System (MGS) that can be used for any agent submitted to a constraint (2). The concerns are that animal and human constraints are not today transferrable to AAs. An entry point is proposed by extending a “stay alive” constraint to AAs.
Ethical concerns are highlighted. Continuations are proposed.
