A Google search for
"artificial intelligence" "challenge problem"
yields interesting results. (For the first result, I had to use the
"cached" feature; I don't know if this is a temporary or persistent
problem with the Microsoft Research page.)
These challenge problems are more practical-oriented than Hilbert's
problems, but then AI is more practically-oriented than Math.
