The Athena Project in General Project Discussion

I suppose this thread will be devoted to the The Athena Project. I've noticed by reading a few of the other threads that there are currently lots of minds devoted to the task of making a chatbot, ai, or something similar. Athena is intended to be my study into ai architecture and perhaps I can add something to my own understanding of the human condition in general also. Basically, I look at ai from every angle and endeavor to make something practical.

     What kind of ai do I intend Athena to be?

I think Athena should be a database of knowledge that mimics as much as possible a real companion. I don't intend for her to be an actual living thing. In order to make an actual living thing, you would first need to encode behavioral knowledge into a physical structural medium that not only processes information but also interacts with its environment. All Athena will be doing is sitting dormant in code upon the undynamic nature of a hard drive. In other words, she can't truly interact with the real world, except for the miniature world of the input window of a console.

     What am I focused primarily on when developing Athena?

I think my focus has mainly been on the actual ai engine. True, I have also worked on a platform of sorts, a user-interface that will make coding Athena fun and exciting. However, what's the point in making a terrific user-interface, or even an avatar, if you don't actually have a clue as to how to make the ai in the first place. Don't get me wrong, I think that graphics and beautiful ai girls have their place in the ai community, its just that I want to use my particular talents on the engine itself.

     Do I intend to sell Athena when she finally gets finished?

Well, I've almost decided to make it a donation type of service. If the people appreciate Athena then they will donate. If they want to donate time in coding and graphics, and they think they've added something to the Athena community, then if they don't feel like giving money then they shouldn't do so. The ai community is a sincere one. Most of them I've seen are in it for curiosity sake. They are dreamers (as the forum name Ai Dreams suggests). Also, many people are getting good at cracking software nowadays so... Anyway, I think you can always use other means of earning money. Like in selling custom packages or some other related sales. I'm sure I can think of some other way of earning money. (i.e. Haptek has a free player, but earns money by selling different types of editors).

     What about customization?

Like I've already mentioned, I think people will help develop Athena. That is intended. I want to make it as easy as possible for any person to learn coding and edit Athena's behaviors. I want it to be highly customizable. I even made the user-interface very customizable. So yes, I want the community involved.


I hope to add many more ideas and thoughts about Athena soon. I intend to present an overview of the coding that I've created thus far and give some details as to why it matters. From Language processing, search features, database creation, various utilities, and algorithms I hope to present these in this thread. (now don't fall asleep yet, it will get a lot more boring from here on out.  :P ) I think by making Athena a bit more open source I will probable gain some insight into other peoples ideas and perhaps learn a thing or two about the ai community.

I don't want to get so greedy that I rob my support community. (like shooting yourself in the foot.)

Can a computer predict the future?
22 June 2016, 12:00 am

                    Researchers at MIT say they have developed a new algorithm that can predict with surprising accuracy what will happen next in a video. Most people have occasionally experienced an awkward hug/handshake combination where one person goes in for a hug while the other extends a hand to shake.

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.

Not long after the invasion and occupation of Earth by a race of powerful robots wanting human knowledge and ingenuity, humans are confined to their homes. Leaving without permission would be to risk their lives. Monitored by the electronic implants in their necks, the robot sentries are able to track the movements of humans in order to control them. And if any person comes out of their home, they are given warnings by the robot sentries to get inside their home. If they do not comply, they are shot immediately.

Pandora

Pandora in Developers

Pandora is the AI developed by the Open Pandora Project. The project's goal is to develop a AI that can interact and collaborate with others over the Internet (forums, wikis, chat, IRC, email, Facebook, SourceForge). Its ultimate goal is for the AI to be able to understand and develop code, and be capable of collaborating on open source projects (perhaps it will join its own project).

Pandora can currently be used to monitor IRC chat rooms, monitor email or email lists, such as providing tech support. She has listening, discussion and reply modes, so can be set to listen to existing users to learn the domain, then set to discussion to reply when she knows a valid response, and finally to reply to always provide an answer. (Not to be confused with Pandorabots)
