Recent advances in Artificial Intelligence have fundamentally changed our beliefs about what a machine can do. AI systems now outperform humans on a number of intellectually challenging tasks. However, one of the most important features of human intelligence is still missing in most existing AI systems: the ability of general problem solving that would enable systems to handle new tasks without human intervention. Building autonomous systems with this cognitive ability is still a grand challenge for AI research. This talk outlines how the research on General Game Playing could lead to a solution to the challenge.


Dongmo Zhang is an associate professor at Western Sydney University, Australia. His research interests include general game playing, belief revision, reasoning about action, bargaining theory, e-trading and multi-agent systems. He was the team leader of the award winning team, jackaroo, in Trading Agent Completions.
