Nuance is no longer sponsoring the competition, and the $25,000 prize mentioned below is no longer offered. The challenge lives on in the many research groups, at Microsoft Research, Facebook, and the Allen Institute, among other places, that are currently (as of 2019) working on aspects of the problem. Commonsense Reasoning is keen to promote the Winograd Schema Challenge and Nuance Communications' competition to successfully pass an alternative to the Turing Test. Background: The Turing Test is intended to serve as a test of whether a machine has achieved human-level intelligence. In one of its best-known versions, a person attempts to determine whether he or she is conversing (via text) with a human or a machine.
