As far as AI goes, think of what a hacker could do to a computer system with a strong AI under his control? How easy do you think it would be to tear down the great wall shielding the DoD from hackers and run this country into the ground in a second. See a normal hacker it would take a long time to run a bunch of number even with a bunch of fancy programs and then they'd have to think of what to do next. With an AI helping them the AI can run all those number pretty much simultaneously and then tell the hack what to do to get around the next hole. AI is something I plan on researching when I become a professor but not for anything a robot or anything. I say we need to keep strict watch on anyone and everyone that uses AI.

I also think some of you are forgetting, AI is everywhere. When you play Need For Speed, there is AI controlling the traffic. When you program a television for certain ratings, there is AI determining which shows to block. I believe that almost anything that can carry out multiple functions based on the state of the input (Need For Speed example: Red lights, Other cars, Turns, Collisions) (Television example: PG, PG-13, R, M) is, in fact AI. Though, I'm sure a dictionary could prove me wrong, that's what I believe

The whole upload my brain and live for ever hell i'd do it and mothernature she is not going to do anything we already punked her. We pollute and trash up the place, cut down trees. You think we can kill this planet? It's been around alot longer time then us.

If there was an artificially intelligent entity, it would realize that there would be no reason for it to create more of itself. Why reproduce when you would never die? A much more promising purpose would be thinking up ways to expand it's own memory, thought rate, etc. to improve upon itself, but as I said, reproduction would be pointless.Personally, I think that this world could use an AI dictator. Who else could rule the world peacefully, without any selfish motives that doom all other rulers?

Yea a world ruled by a super computer with Ai 100x smarter then the adverage man. I would live there It owuld be peacefull I think as long and we help it and show it we are not the enemey and he can help the world don't want the spot of termintor really happening.

I really don't think it will ever be possible to human-like AI. Humans have emotions that influence decisions, which computers will never have. Also the human brain would take up a lot of space if it was somehow ever put on a computer.

We are already killing our planet, the only reason it was around so much longer than us is because we never existed. How could we possibly survive the ozone layer being depleted, all the heat from the sun would roast us easily. Also, no matter how many people attempt to prevent this, we have already dug our grave. I couldn't simply stop polluting and throwing out trash, it's the way I grew up. So many others couldn't either

Yes, but if we could somehow emulate emotions, then why wouldn't the robots decide to take us over. Unless we make them live to support us, then they could decide what they feel they want to do with us.

How would you possibly want to live underneath something you created? I prefer the life I live now. I would like a robot to help around the house, but not one that can make decisions for me.

Anything is possible, just think. We were at some point in time, first discovering fire. We had computers the size of a living room and they ran on vaccume (SP?) tubes. We have microchips now and computers 100x as powerful that run on your lap. We used to listen to records, now we con store thousands of songs in our pockets. Why couldn't we emulate emotions in the near future? Perhaps, a better question to ask is, Why would we want to give a machine that is much more powerful than us and that could think way faster than us emotions? What if we pissed it off?

Why create robots or computers with emotions? All we need is a program/computer that can think using reason and logic at a faster pace than we biological entities can. What would be the point of attempting to emulate emotions? It would only pose problems or, if nothing else, waste money. If one wants a dictator, one should use an emotionless computer that cannot be distracted by feelings that skew the facts. If one wants a friend, one can walk down the street and find one. There's no reason to attempt to create what already exists.

One word IROBOT lol, no seriously, AI infact is used in a game, but it is programmed to do it. AI scripting is indeed difficult but INDEMAND! If your job was to make scripts for poeple and code AI's, im sure you will be making alot of money lol. not no 5 dollars and hour lol.

Yes, that was exactly what I was hinting at. Also, if this form of artificial inteligene were to exist, we should give it no physical abilities. Just in case that this would, in fact come to the conclusion that we are destroying ourselves, it couldn't harm us in any way. And yes, an emotionless form of AI is the best bet as it would decide our future based on facts and not feelings. AI with emotion would be great for the gaming industry, who wouldn't want to fight a bot that can actually get angry, scared or even surrender? It would bring a whole new revolution to the gaming world. But then, that is what makes me wonder. If we are killing something that can actually think, and feel emotion would that not mean it could feel to? Would that not mean that killing something in the game would almost relate to killing something in real life? It's such a blurry topic, as we humans are so complex. It's mind boggling to imagine to be able to create a real living entity to our world. I would never take part in this, however as I believe in god and I would like to leave life up to him.

But ruling by simple facts is actually worse than ruling with emotions when it comes to humans really. Because a human ruling with emotion can be compassionate and be very lenient even if an offender does something multiple times. But with ruling by facts alone you could have someone put to death for commiting a semi minor crime.Take the move IRobot. I know it is bad to use a movie as a reference since all movies revolving around this subject are entirly fiction, but the idea remains in my mind when you said to rule by facts. The robots in that movie were kiling off humans because they were programmed to protect humans at all costs. They could think feel, everything but they were governed by factual data not really emotions. Then ending realization was that the central AI for all the robots was actually trying to protect the humans by killing them all off. This sounds contradictory but think about what do to our bodies by smoking, drug use, food, all the things bad we do, and especially to the environment. We humans kill ourselves and the robots were trying to protect from ourselves. That is the problem of ruling by facts with a computer because computers can only do what we tell them to do. And if we say rule by strict facts then that is what they do regardless of circumstances. You would need emotion to be any kind of lenient and AI with emotion is bad news.


Cerebral Stasis

Gondero, don't use a cheesy science fiction movie like iRobot as a refence for ideas. In theory, maybe, but in practice, no. The world just doesn't work like that.And Wolves, a computer wouldn't have to have real emotions to give characters in a game emotion. It would simulate the emotion (by reacting to the character's actions in certain ways that we would percieve as emotion), but real emotion would be unnecessary (not to mention possibly impossible).

Project

General Discussion: Artificial Intelligence (AI)

 

Hi I am very new to Artificial Intelligence. I want to learn something different and I choose this field. But it confused me a lot. Now they are telling me to do a project on my own for completing my masters. I got no idea what to do. Is someone there to help me or give me suggestion. I need to finish my masters anyway so there is no going back.

 

Cheers

Preethi

If you chosen it to be different, don't be afraid to learn it. You will grasp the concepts soon and you can deploy your projects yourself :)

 

Don't give up. Keep Trying.
