Since this is a large part of my career and some of yours potentially, I'd like to share and hear your ideas about AI.

Some say it can't be done, some say it can. (I'm talking about decision making and reactive intelligence that learns over time as humans do)

I'll make the first contribution: here is a nice open source self learning system that is going to be released this summer.

In the last couple months I can remember reading about:

Rensselaer Polytechnic developing a childlike AI that might just pass the turing test:
http://www.eetimes.com/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=206903246

Robot insects that learned how to lie for their own benefit:
http://gizmodo.com/346029/scientists-invent-robots-that-lie-real-bender-closer-than-ever

And less impressive, but still significant components to the end of humanity like-

Pattern recognition vastly improved:
http://www.foxbusiness.com/article/m2sys-introduces-revolutionary-biometric-artificial-intelligence-technology_497968_1.html

And then there's always those wacky Japanese trying to slip AI's into everything from your 12 phallus vibrating dildo ball to your extra-strong-jetting bidet:

it depends on how you define AI. if you want something as intelligent as data thats many years ahead. now if you want a program thats dumb as hell but technically adpats on it own - thats already around. the biggest limitation ATM is memory space and their own choice. point in case 2 friends of mine have AI, one gave it 10Mb of space for memory - its dumb and not terribly adaptive after it filled up its space but it still learns. The other guy gave his about 100mb of space and it decided to evolve into a boot sector virus

speaking of Turing, it made an appearance in Dilbert today. I wonder what tiny percent of the public who read Dilbert will understand what that means?

I'm not sure what you mean by "some say it can't be done". If you know people who say "decision making and reactive intelligence that learns over time as humans do" can't be done, then these people are grossly misinformed. If you're talking about machines with some meaningful sense of self that is more than sophisticated statistics, I'd still say you're wrong, but at least I could understand your contention.

Anyway, here are some interesting sources

Singularity Summit:

One of my favorite books: Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid

And of course, the de facto professional society:

They can always just use stem cells to grow brain cells to interface with machines and make some bomb ass AI that will kill us all.

i dont see whats so hard about ai

its easy to do it with software, just get some sensors and have the computer sense stuff
store the data then repeat
voila, you've got AI

if i had a spare weekend i'd do it but im busy so AI will have to wait

i work with swarm technology
large groups armed units attacking all types of targets while improving their attacking efficiency over time with experience
some interesting stuff in this field.

That sounds cool. I guess you use a lot of multiagent and maybe even some emergent behavior type stuff?

Congrats, it sounds fun.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turing_test
Quote :
"In the Dilbert comic strip on Sunday 30 March 2008, Dilbert says to his boss "Congratulations. You're the first human to fail the Turing Test." after he responds only with meaningless, tautological thought-terminating clichés. In the comic, Dilbert says, "The security audit accidentally locked all of the developers out of the system", and his boss responds with "Well, it is what it is." Dilbert asks "How does that help" and his boss responds with another cliche, "You don't know what you don't know." For that day, "turing test" was the 43rd most popular Google search[46]."

(did i just admit something that i didn't want to? oh well, it is what it is)

Tech giants pledge $1bn for 'altruistic AI' venture, OpenAI

Quote :
"Prominent tech executives have pledged $1bn (£659m) for OpenAI, a non-profit venture that aims to develop artificial intelligence (AI) to benefit humanity.

The venture's backers include Tesla Motors and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, Paypal co-founder Peter Thiel, Indian tech giant Infosys and Amazon Web Services.

Open AI says it expects its research - free from financial obligations - to focus on a "positive human impact"."

Quote :
"A statement on OpenAI's website said the venture aims "to advance digital intelligence in the way that is most likely to benefit humanity as a whole, unconstrained by a need to generate financial return".

"It's hard to fathom how much human-level AI could benefit society, and it's equally hard to imagine how much it could damage society if built or used incorrectly."

The statement said AI "should be an extension of individual human wills and, in the spirit of liberty, as broadly and evenly distributed as is possible safely"."

AI is certainly a thing. The Universe allows intelligence. Worse case scenario, one day we'll just start putting biological neurons into our computers.

we will all lose our jobs to robots

then only Neo can save us


but yeah, I would not want to consider a career in anything repetitive, focused on driving a lot, or making decisions based on data (and that's a lot)

Prices will adjust. If it is the case that every job is better done by an AI, that means the price of everything will have dropped to nearly zero, so your pocket change can feed clothe and house you for the rest of your life

Of course, this presumes that AI's do not achieve personhood in the eyes of the law.

Intelligent systems is also evolving. A conference on intelligent systems is held quietly today in RTI.

Seems like in about half a century to a century we might be ruled by machines.
