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]

    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!

    The thing about landline phones is that they never get lost. No air tag necessary.

    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.

    The Tao of math: The numbers you can count are not the real numbers.
