The question is, would a computer be capable of acting intelligently and creatively on its own accord, to the point where someone reading this wouldnt know if a computer or a human is typing it? ;)
This stuff amazes me, its funny seeing philosophers falling over each other trying to quantify it in a nice quaint sentence or two.......for human consumption.
So what gives, one day, will computers know what work they have to do, without us telling them what to do...or is it always going to be a case of "monkey push button get banana" ;o)
Some interesting but un-foo like reading here.
What do we class as intelligence? I think computers will be intelligent in the future but not in the same way as we are and its a long way off as processors are just not quick enough. If we try to evolve intelligence which the universe has taken billion years to do, how long would it take our computers but I do think evolving programs are the way as you just couldn't program anything anywhere near as complex as the brain.
Could the created become more intelligent than the creator?
Anyway I'll keep it short, could go on forever about this.
My answer is yes I think they will think for themselves in the future but a long long way off [added]: but not the way we currently class as thinking for yourself.
[added]: Also forgot to mention my username comes from Glac a private ai project I been doing for about a year, its also a long way off.
It's worth reading it all, ya..phew ;) I like the stuff about Zeus.....it makes sense.
It never mentions anything about "alien intelligence"....but I agree there's more than one form of intelligence. Seems the study of IT and neurology are coming closer together though, perhaps that's just our own curiousity :)
>Glac a private ai project
I Wouldn't mind trying to "interrogate" it, and see how long it fools me :) Will maybe see it getting the Loebner Prize?
