[Original draft of this Hernandez-Orallo and Dowe paper at http://users.dsic.upv.es/proy/anynt .]

{This current Hernandez-Orallo and Dowe paper (with reference above) follows on earlier work - where Dowe and Hajek (1997a) and Dowe and Hajek (1997b) and (sec. 2 [and its title] and sec. 4 of) Dowe and Hajek (1998) and (especially sec. 5.2 of) Sanghi and Dowe (2003) point out that MML, Kolmogorov complexity and two-part compression can be used to measure the inductive learning (or inductive inference) part of intelligence. For me, it all began perhaps a little before the time I gave a talk entitled ``MML and the Turing test'' on 27/Feb/1996 - see, e.g., [footnote 179 {or here} (on p543) of] Dowe (2008a).}
