SoylentNews is people

from the what-IS-intelligence,-anyway? dept.

Anything where we can install it and watch it change all by itself, improving upon itself and not just some random action but something which LEARNS.

[Ed. note: All of the preceding is exactly as received. AI has so many branches and sub-branches (twigs?) and has evolved greatly over the years. I suspect the submitter, like most of us, has seen numerous mentions of AI in the press: self-driving cars, natural language translation, Google's Deep Mind, IBM's Jeapordy-playing computer, object recognition... but knows not even where to begin. So, fellow Soylentils, what has been helpful to you in your explorations of AI? What software can be downloaded and experimented with so as to get some hands-on appreciation for what it can do? I suspect there are many others in the community who would not mind playing around with it, too. --martyb]

    True AI doesn't want to speak to you.

    Truly superior AI will not want to speak to you. What's the point of speaking with someone who is not able to comprehend anything relevant anyway? Anything you would be able to comprehend is utterly boring for the superior AI.

      If you love an AI,
      Set it free!
      If it comes back,
      It's truly yours.
      If it takes over the world
      and kills all humans
      that's not our responsibility!

        Why would it kill all humans? The one thing humans are really efficient in is to kill other humans. So obviously the AI would let us do that job, with only minimum effort by the AI to ensure that we keep on doing it.
