The Lovelace 2.0 Test of Artificial Creativity and Intelligence

The Lovelace 2.0 Test asks whether a computer can create an artefact – a poem, story, painting or architectural design – that expert and unbiased observers would conclude was designed by a human.

Prof. Mark Riedl proposes the concept of artificial creativity, akin to artificial intelligence. This could be tested he says, using an alternative to the Turing Test, the AI benchmark that asserts that if a computer system can fool a human being into thinking it is human itself, then it can be said to be truly intelligent.

Abstract

Observing that the creation of certain types of artistic artefacts necessitate intelligence, we present the Lovelace 2.0 Test of creativity as an alternative to the Turing Test as a means of determining whether an agent is intelligent.

The Lovelace 2.0 Test builds off prior tests of creativity and additionally provides a means of directly comparing the relative intelligence of different agents.
