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]

    AI seems to come in two major forms.

    First type GOFAI. (Good Old Fashioned AI) Lisp pattern matching. Prolog. OPS5. Computer Algebra Systems (CAS). Theorem provers. Minimax game playing systems. Minikanren Etc.

    Second type Neural Net or Statistical based. The first effective spam filters were Bayesian. Neural nets do amazing things with practical every day use. Alexa: how long does it take to make the 10 minute drive to the office?

    The most difficult part of the art of fencing is digging the holes and carrying the fence posts.

    Half an hour.
