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."

    An interesting related article in New Scientist relating to pain and how certain types of beastie have evolved to sense it in different ways, from 'not at all' (insects) through 'sort of' (squids) to 'most definitely a bit like humans' (octopi) -d-invertebrates-feel-pain.html []

    The link between pain and self awareness is one that I've never properly considered before, won't stop be eating whatever I feel like though :-)
