AI textbooks and papers often discuss the big questions, such as "how to reason with uncertainty", "how to reason efficiently", or "how to improve performance through learning ." It is more difficult, however, to find descriptions of concrete problems or challenges that are still ambitious and interesting, yet not so open-ended. The goal of this panel is to formulate a set of such challenge problems for the field. Each panelist was asked to formulate one or more challenges. The emphasis is on problems for which there is a good chance that they will be resolved within the next five to ten years.
