dyslexic writes "An Equation For Intelligence? It is something like the philosopher's stone. A sort of E=mc2 that would put intelligence, and more particularly artificial intelligence, on a sound theoretical footing. But could it be as simple as this TED talk video (available on the link in addition to the article) suggests? The video explains some of this and provides examples of the principle in action where it is claimed to replicate a number of "human-like" intelligent behaviors including cooperation and tool use."

    Also, each and every talk revolutionizes the way you think and the world you live in. By the time you get out, you won't know what to think or where you are.

    Oh man, I hear you. Several of my students are complete fans of these talks and BECAUSE it's a ted talk it must be true, otherwise it would not be a ted talk. They absolutely stop thinking for themselves once the video starts. Pointing out flaws or straight out lies are considered to 'spoil it'.
    I can't be bothered to watch them myself, and proper transcripts somehow aren't there. No, subtitles don't count.

    All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
