Long Time No Post :)
Hey everyone.

Just wanted to say Hi, I haven't been on in a while.

Maybe to stir up some discussion we could have an open topic suggestion system with voting?

What is life?

Since September i've been working on a project. I have neglected posting about it here because i wanted to really dig in and understand it myself before i felt ready to share or debate.

Basically I want to redefine what we consider to be alive as our reasons for excluding what most consider "inanimate objects" just doesn't make sense to me and I would argue don't make sense even according to our current ideas of what is alive. It also solves the question of when did life "arise" on the planet as its always been here, just in a way that is different than what we think of as life. The earth itself is alive, so instead of there being this almost mystical change over from "inanimate matter" into "life" we have simply an evolution from one form of life to another, molecules into single cell organisms. It makes a lot more sense science usually prefers the simpler explanation.

Anway i've done a lot of writing and a lot more thinking on the subject and most of it is posted on my blog which I welcome you to read, comment on and question with me.

Defective pixel
There is true expression on panel. But only one pixel is defective. Which one?

So long since I have posted, sorry.

What does everyone think of seed AI versus other types of AI is what I am curious about, and what would you say are the main branches of thinking between types of AI coding structure?

Feel free to make your reply a new post instead of a comment/reply for the sake of pushing the information to people who are watching the community who could have opinions that will see it on their friends link. ;)

Computers get better at the Game of Go (aka Wei-Chi and Baduk)
There is an interesting conversation about AI here:

It builds upon my earlier (August 10th, 2008) posts here (see below: http://community.livejournal.com/tessier_ashpool/31138.html and http://community.livejournal.com/go/58773.html ).

I thought some of you might enjoy this info/conversation.

Technological singularity discussions: futurism, Moore's Law, and machine learning
(Cross posted to tessier_ashpool and singularity_now.)

Recently I wrote a few commentaries on "singularity science" and the research on computer architecture and intelligent systems that attends it. Here are the links:

Comments are welcome!

New Security/Privacy Forum
Hey everyone I just made a new Computer Security and Privacy Forum called noneofyourinfo, it is at http://noneofyour.info

(A play on keeping your information secure)

I haven't got many posts yet but would like to spread the word about it; it's one of my first forums.

I will soon add an Artificial Intelligence section and suggestions on section additions are welcome.

AI and the game of Go
Some interesting news, Andrew Okun just reported:
MyungWan Kim, 8p, lost a 9-stone handicap game by 1.5 points to an 800-processor core European supercomputer running MoGo. {For those of you who don't know the ranking system, 8p means 8-Dan Black-Belt Pro, so one of the best in the world, and the 9-stone handy-cap given to the computer is a HUGE advantage, so I was hoping it would do better... but it did win... sort of...}

David Doshay, a California computer go researcher, said the win was significant not only in itself, but because the Monte Carlo method-based MoGo software showed strong evidence that its strength is dependent on the time and computing resources available to it, meaning it will get stronger over the years as computers get more powerful, without the need for additional coding.

1) For an earlier IEEE article on AI, Chess and the game of Go, see:
2) Andrew Okun will be joining the AGA Board of Directors in September.
AGA = American Go Assoc.

I have created http://www.cyberpunkforum.com

I just added threads and made it all in about 6 or 7 afternoons...

It has an AI section, I am also working on making the "BBS" section work better...

if you had a seed AI would it learn tcp/ip on its own?

could it figure out how to work the network card on its own?

how could you make a program do this?

Hello everyone. I'm a full-time AI researcher, mostly working on commercial AI at the moment, but aiming at AGI in the longer term. I've recently begun to put up some web-based demos of the tech I'm working on; not much there yet but hopefully they will be some really interesting stuff going up in the next few months. Anyway, glad to be here, hope to see some interesting posts.

I'm not a great expert, but i do wonder why people always seem interested in programming AI Bots top down and not bottom-up. The former is going to produce a boring, flawed simulation of human intelligence, the latter is going to produce a much more interesting, eventual Simulated Consciousness.

When i speak to a SC of the future, it's going to respond because it, like me, must share some familiarity with the 3D universe, and be motivated to respond to me. It is our motivations that define us. These stem from our emotions and characters. Our characters stem from our preferences and experience of the world, and genetic powers/talents.

Marvin from Hitch Hikers is a great example of AI. He has been programmed bottom-up, but is depressed because he is not being stimulated by his environment.....or, his Mood Variables are badly configured. Maths is the underlying Law of the Universe. Who's to say that this Law doesn't apply to our emotions... Our need to think and be creative comes from the drive to re-shape our world. This must be fundamental to any serious thinking about AI.

New version of djuzeppe online AI engine is ready. Now you can teach Natasha bot from main page.


Now bot know mostly russian, but you can teach her english language.

There are three inputboxes in teaching form. In first put keywords, in second - answers, in third - tegs/themes. Like in flickr you can assigne tegs/themes not to pictures, but to keywords and answers.

Divide keywords and tegs with one comma ",". Answers divide with two commas ",,".

Freud Bot - from Vienna and Russia [with love]
Hello friends! We are training SMS-bots here in Russia and Vienna. We are looking for partners and collaborators... Below some sample of real dialogue with our FREUD BOT. You can sms him: +79226422022

Trainers: Magnus Wurzer, Vienna.
Sergey Teterin, Russia.

Unknown: hi
Freud Bot: hello, lie down and tell me what makes you crazy.
Unknown: well, all those thoughts - i don't know where to start
Freud Bot: Let's concentrate - when did you (honestly!) last wet your bed?
Unknown: 2 years ago
Freud Bot: Let's first have a closer look on your oedipal complex, though.
Unknown: and?
Freud Bot: That's actually good - we are on the right track! Tell me more.
Unknown: you are a bot
Freud Bot: are you a neurotic urban biped?
Unknown: sometimes
Freud Bot: "The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is "What does a woman want?"" (Sigmund Freud)
Unknown: tell me
Freud Bot: i can't tell you what you can't tell me.
Unknown: mind if i smoke?
Freud Bot: i am sure your childhood was full of trauma.
Unknown: it was

I have the intention of building an expert system using prolog / lisp (or other programming language), under the jurisdiction of A.I.

This ES will hold a database of recommended food sites locally. The ES should have an attractive GUI where users can select options based on drop down boxes such as :

Type of cuisine
Hours of operation (Day/Night/After 12)
Location - North south east west, which is then further broken down.
Perhaps have details like what sort of bus services operate in the area,

Any comments pls?

Ready to go up in the well?
July 12, 2006


A Russian Dnepr rocket carrying the Bigelow Aerospace pathfinder mission Genesis I has successfully launched from the ISC Kosmotras space and missile complex in the Orenburg region of Russia.



"Frankly, you hear a lot of talk about inflatables. People use them in PowerPoint charts…but that only takes you so far. There is no real data in regard to how an inflatable habitat is going to function in space. We expect to learn a lot from these initial Genesis launches, in regard to our basic engineering and the concept as a whole," Gold explained.

I hear it looks like this inside.Collapse )
