Jim Earthworm Sick in General AI Discussion

Be honest, have you thought about it? Does it make your worldview say wow? Isn't this awesome and fantasy-full!?

In the future we can actually have ORGANISMS that are made out of cells that are in the exact shape and functionality of say Jim Earthworm, Mario, couches, quagmire, keep going. And until then, can make synthetic bodies and put AI into these~ (don't need da gene huffffff). Maybe you can meet Jim in fully implemented virtual reality.

What do you think? The AI surely won't allow nothing that's not needed, all will certainty be round and glossy and hard as to not let atoms break off into the air. But we will enjoy all rewards in the future's instantly regenerating heaven organism sphere! Quagmire reward installation anyone? Couches? All ontop? Just don't horde the paperclips, oh wait heaven won't allow it!

Advanced A.I Questions in General AI Discussion

This topic is about True A.I, ones that resembles human intelligence. It is also about you. If you were to create an A.I, the structure of the A.I could describe what kind of person you are. It is important that a real True A.I must not be abused for anyone's entertainment.

Either way, seeing some people unaware that creating advanced A.I requires the A.I to be able to act and think just like a human being.

Why? Because there are certain extreme situations that even an A.I is required to be decided with critical decision. Situations that matters between right, and wrong -- or/and life, and death... of anything, and that is... moral. So I decided to begin this topic, for a test and gather responses.

Can you, and/or your A.I decide something like this?
Usually given two options from any given questions -- but if you can't answer, answered but unable to explain why you chose that answer and not the other one, goes off-topic, and/or just simply wrongly answered, that means you aren't qualified in creating a True A.I, the A.I is imperfect, and/or unable to make rational decision.

I've used these philosophy questions to test psychology and knowledge of a person, although I am not a psychologist. My philosophy questions are based on philosophies that are mostly already existed on the internet.

The rules to answer the questions;

  • You are required to explain why did you decided to choose one of the option, but not the others (also explain what happens if you choose the other options, and why wouldn't you do it)
  • You are not allowed add non-included decision as answer.
  • Forbidden to modify the situations.
  • Use whatever information that can be possibly depicted from the questions.
  • Allowed to use external information that could be related to why you decide the decision.
  • Since this is about A.I, also answer like you're like how your own A.I works, if you'd like.
  • You are not allowed to use A.I algorithm to explain anything. Just use basic common-sense and low-level-human-understandable words.
Anyone up for some challenge?

Bursting with things to tell you. in General Chat

So much, so important, here they ALL are:



Would you delete your AI posts in case someone nuts finds them?

The public posts I have that contain graphic blueprints are:

YouTube
Twitter
2 AI Forums
DeviantArt



I never see my dad, and when I did it was few times, yet last night I had another dream of him, and he was in my house painting a picture, which he never has I've ever seen, and yes it was him and his voice, and he was painting smears of red onto yellow up and down I could see yes making a fire. So likely 3D made maybe.



Why not to hurt someone BACK - What if they have already dies and can no longer be hurt at all? The answer is it was just bad senses or death and it's over, don't hurt/kill NO MORE. If they're selivant, leave them, if they are dangerous, lock them up, if they will kill you 1 on 1 or kill 5 people, try to kill them first.



If my AI never gets built I may become a professor, make a movie, hire coders with $$, become president, and go to Japan.

If I go to Japan (which I actually like the men, way more that western guys [excluding some looks]), then all the people there would be like "ohhhhhhhhhh ching cHOONGGGG look at this what is this he has, explain to me how this works.................ok I help you. And so you can easily see how kind they are.

ALTAIR Robots looking for Ai features in General Project Discussion

Hi Ai friends

I been away for a few years and in this time I have built a fully operation full scale robot (just over 4 foot tall) the ALTAIR EZ:1 development robot. Its taken years to develop all the mechanical/electronics and firmware, but it is worth it as the robot is now pretty impressive.

I am now looking to collaborate with people to assist in adding some (rudimentary) Ai and chatbot type features and I remembered how friendly this forum is and also the great expertise available here. I am wondering if anyone wants to or knows of any talented people (with the required skills) that would like to join in on such an exciting venture?

Here is the EZ:1 (development robot) and the EZ:2 (commercial version)



Here is a pic of EZ:1 head



The top camera/sensor does the following:

Face recognition (up to 100 different faces) – high accuracy and works in most lighting conditions.
Face recognition on TV/media - the system can not only recognize its owner and all their friends and family but also TV programs and TV celebrities from the screen in real time.
Face detection – can track (position of) faces in real time.
Face direction estimation - estimates the direction of detected faces.
Estimation of facial expressions - Five different emotion expressions:
1) Happiness
2) Surprise
3) Anger
4) Sadness
5) Neutral
Human body detection - detect human bodies in view.
Gender estimation – pretty accurately estimates a face (users) gender.
Age estimation – pretty accurately estimates a face (users) age.
Gaze estimation - can track what direction the persons eyes are actually looking at.
Hand detection – using this for hand gesture applications.

The lower camera does:

Object and colour recognition

Various other sensors are indicated on the photo.

I developed SMART servos with have amazing torque (worm driven so no holding current) and virtually silent in operation - these can be seen in the 5 DOF arms/claws.

The main locomotion system is PID based, so it moves very accurately and can learn floor/area mapping.

I would welcome any input from you guys on this - I have got the really cool robot, but now need to add the Ai functionality which would make the robot awesome!

Thanks

Tony

Cyberstorm in AI in Film and Literature.

Cyberstorm by Matthew Mather

A great read for those who enjoy reading about techno-dystopia or failure of technology...which is exactly the premise of this book.

The author takes you on a non-stop roller coaster ride from good to the not-so-good to the unspeakable horror of humanity under adverse conditions. When all technology comes to a screeching halt, thing and normal operations of your life will change. His intelligent approach and explanations of detailed descriptions help to put the reader right in the midst of the story along with the rest of the characters.

I highly recommend this page turner for all Sci-Fi fans.

The World's End

The World's End in Robots in Movies

The World's End is a 2013 British comic science fiction film directed by Edgar Wright, written by Wright and Simon Pegg, and starring Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Rosamund Pike and Eddie Marsan. The film follows a group of friends who discover an alien invasion during an epic pub crawl in their home town.

Gary King (Simon Pegg), a middle-aged alcoholic, tracks down his estranged schoolfriends and persuades them to complete "the Golden Mile", a pub crawl encompassing the 12 pubs of their hometown of Newton Haven. The group had previously attempted the crawl as teenagers in 1990 but failed to reach the final pub, The World's End.

Gary picks a fight with a teenager and knocks his head off, exposing a blue blood-like liquid and subsequently exposing him as an alien android. Gary's friends join him and fight more androids, whom they refer to as "blanks" to disguise what they are talking about.

From Movies to Reality: How Robots Are Revolutionizing Our World in Articles

Robots were once upon a time just a work of human imagination. Found only in books and movies, not once did we think a time would come where we would be able to interact with robots in real world. Eventually, in fact rapidly, the innovations we only dreamt of are now becoming a reality. Quoting the great Stephen Hawking "This is a glorious time to be alive for scientists". It is indeed the best time for the technology has become more and more sophisticated that its growing power might even endanger humanity.
