The Winograd Schema Challenge in 2016 highlighted shortcomings of an artificially intelligent system's ability to understand context. The Challenge is designed to present ambiguous sentences and ask AI systems to decipher them. In the Winograd Scheme Challenge, the two winning entries were successful 48% of the time, while random chance was correct 45% of the time. Quan Liu of the University of Science and Technology of China (partnering with University of Toronto and National Research Council of Canada) and Nicos Isaak of the Open University of Cyprus presented the most successful systems. It is notable that Google and Facebook did not participate.
The 2016 Winograd Schema Challenge highlighted how even the most successful AI systems entered into the Challenge were only successful 3% more often than random chance.
