  • Planning, Executing, and Evaluating the Winograd Schema Challenge
    • Abstract: The Winograd Schema Challenge (WSC) was proposed by Hector Levesque in 2011 as an alternative to the Turing test. Chief among its features is a simple question format that can span many commonsense knowledge domains. Questions are chosen so that they do not require specialized knowledge or training ...
