  • Where are we with this?
    Any gadget come near to passing the Turing test yet?
    Is the Turing test the right way to test intelligence?
    What is intelligence?

  • Intellect is hard to define. I have it, and I presume that you do, too.

  • Is artificial intelligence when you say you have a 1st but really you scraped a Desmond?

    Not even Google knows that about me.

  • they are spending 1bn on finding out how the human brain works

    is this the start of artificial intelligence

    A bit further along than 5 years ago
    No
    No
    Too deep for 10am

  • Last question I don't know but I rather liked this theory when I was studying
    Spearman's G theory of intelligence or g-factor
    But nowadays it's all X-factor and people are becoming more stupid. Or at least we have stopped evolving according to Attenborough.
    The Chinese room argument is still a great argument of how a machine can pass a Turing test but still be no closer to what we would define as true intelligence. But yeah it's pretty deep without being stoned :)

  • Turing thought that 30% of machines would pass a Turing test timed no more than 5 minutes of questioning by the year 2000. I tried talking to a chatbot online. As soon as I asked it "to describe a low risk cycling strategy" it changed the subject.

  • That wasn't a chatbot, you were skyping Boris.

    1. How do you define stupid?
    2. That makes no sense. Humanity is smarter than ever before. A lot of us can read, consume information, solve complex problems and have an understanding of the world around us to some degree. There are more technological advances and people that utilize them effectively on a daily basis. X-factor and television bombards everyone with information which the mind has to disseminate quickly and effectively every minute of everyday.
      Does it not require a more intelligent mind for that to happen?
      Is it even possible for a modern human to "become" more stupid?

    It's geniuses like me dragging up the averages for the X Factor massive. ;)

  • The Man Who Would Teach Machines to Think

                                Douglas Hofstadter, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of *Gödel, Escher, Bach*, thinks we've lost sight of what artificial intelligence really means. His stubborn quest to replicate the human mind.

  • GEB -Great book on so many levels
    Meta-awesome

  • I'd never even heard of it - we barely touched on AI at uni and nothing since that has any basis in it. Maybe I'll add it to my list.

  • Artificial intelligence is impossible. Either it's artificial, in which case it's not intelligence, or it's intelligence, in which case it's not artificial.

    There, problem solved.

  • I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

  • Artificial intelligence is impossible. Either it's artificial, in which case it's not intelligence, or it's intelligence, in which case it's not artificial.

    Does not compute

    Maybe I'll add it to my list.

    It a great introduction to AI, Musical counterpoint, Hive mentality, Ants, Recursiveness, Zen Koans and much much more...

    I have a spare hippy if you want

  • AI. Switch off c Hal fie?

    Bolx. Prove I'm not a AI.
