1. Introduction

Question Title

What does Artificial Intelligence mean to you?

This survey is being conducted by David Burden and Maggi Savin-Baden to help better understand what people think of when they hear the  term "AI" or "artificial intelligence".

On the next page you'll be presented with a list of different sorts of computer systems, some real, some from science fiction. For use the 3 dropdowns to rate each system out of 5 in terms of how:
  • how sophisticated you think it is (1st column),
  • how human you think it seems (2nd column), and
  • how well it measures up to you idea of what an AI is (3rd column).
There is then a page asking you how important a variety of different features are, in your view, for a "virtual human" - a human-like AI.

The penultimate page just asks for some basic demographic information.

On the final page you can leave your email if you'd like to be entered into a prize-draw for David and Maggi's new book on Virtual Humans.
