At a minimum, this casts doubt on the primary assumption of the thought experiment (Clancey 1997). To conclude this section on the Turing test, we mention one of its major limitations. If we are willing to attribute at least some level of intelligence to ants, rats, or elephants, the Turing test is obviously out as a tool for assessing intelligence. It can be applied only to systems capable of dealing with ``human'' natural language. , Crockett 1994; Epstein 1992). The Common Denominator We have now looked at various ways in which we can characterize intelligence.

Those in the nature camp think that development is largely the expression of genetically predetermined factors. , Pinker 1994), physics (Spelke 1994), or mathematics (Wynn 1992). By contrast, people in the nurture camp posit that most abilities are acquired The Study of Intelligence 15 during development and can be learned. The last violent eruption of this debate was in 1994, when Herrnstein and Murrey published their controversial book The Bell Curve, in which they claimed that the decisive factor in whether we will be successful in life is not our social environment, but intelligence as measured by IQ.

Autonomous agents exhibit emergent behaviors. Such behaviors are not programmed into the agents by the designer but rather are a result of the interaction of the agents with their environment. Autonomous agents, robotic or computational, can be used in three ways: as models of natural agents, to explore general principles of intelligence, and for speci®c tasks and applications. There are large areas of overlap among these three modes, especially between the ®rst two. ``Synthetic'' implies design.
