Game-playing has always proved a promising test ground for artificial general intelligence and tool for evaluating how a system learns. Dr. Yngvi Björnsson presented and explained General Game Playing (GGP) and its contribution to the field of AI. He also introduced the CADIA-Player, which recently won the 2012 international GGP Competition. The CADIA player has the unique ability to “think ahead” when it plays a game so that moves are optimized and the non-human player is competitive. Reykjavik University collaborates with Stanford and a broader international research community to develop GGP systems and solve many of the unanswered questions that still remain.

This year the Icelandic Centre of Excellence in Theoretical Computer Science celebrates the life and work of Alan Turing with a series of dedicated talks. The Turing Year Events at Reykjavik University are organized in collaboration with the School of Computer Science at Reykjavik University, the Icelandic Mathematical Society, CADIA and The Icelandic Institute for Intelligent Machines.
Of note is the joint talk on April 12th by Yngvi Björnsson on Alan Turing’s contributions to AI. The talk will be followed by a critique of the Turing Test by Kristinn R. Thórisson, followed by a question/answer session.
The news bulletin for the event follows in this post, including the schedule and description of talks. For slides, data and other related content, please see the Event’s Website.
