– “Why I Am Sure…. That Artificial Intelligence Is Possible – Part 2” –
My First Ai Model
I built my first Ai, on ArtificialintelligenceProject.com/version1.
But…. what is Artificial Intelligence? Well, in my opinion, “the first Ai,” (computer learning systems), won’t be like in the movies, instead, the first Ai will exist solely in the digital realm.
The first Ai will be programs…..like Artificialintelligenceproject.com.….. and in fact, many such programs already exist today…
For example, many internet search engines in many ways are similar to Ai technology. Search engines clumping words, in order to create, “the best suited outputs,” tailored to each individual user’s input, is akin to Ai.
So what is Ai?
Well, “Ai,” is not as cut and dry a term, as one might think. In fact, there are several different types of, “Ai technology.”
Think about that thought. How do you talk? What do you say?
How do you write? What do you write? How much do you typically write? And why?
All of these things represent intelligence and require thought. In essence, all of these things are different aspects of, “Ai.” However, I personally view the concept of Ai in it’s purest form. Furthermore, in my opinion, “true Ai,” should be viewed in terms of, “reverse engineering the human mind.” I’ve come to think of this as, “true Ai,” or the purest form of artificial intelligence, akin to human beings.
Video Games and Ai
Most video games define, “Ai,” as reactionary…… This type of Ai is almost entirely based on, “reactionary programming.” (Whereby Player A, does this or that and then the computer reacts accordingly.)
However, to me personally….. Ai is another level of computing. In fact, Ai should be any varying level of computerized intelligence, both big and small….. In essence, to be clear there’s a distinguishment here, between, “computer learning through intelligence and emotions,” versus wholly mechanical computer learning, based on positive and negative re-enforcement / over time, or empiricle data vs emotional data.
Nevertheless, I also theorize that the government has possibly already built, “functional,” program level Ai’s. These Ai’s, in many ways could simulate the world’s conditions. Now with that being said, I do not believe that the government, or the private sector, has yet built a; seeing, thinking; “robotic Ai,” as the visual technology still remains beyond the free market. (I-phone 10 Facial Recognition anybody?)……… (And this brings forth another topic of morality, in terms of the science fiction surrounding robotic Ai, as well as the secrecy surrounding modern this tech entirely.)
So what is Ai? What’s, “True Ai?”
And what is, “The Larsen Test?”
I like to think of (what I’ve titled), “true Ai,” as almost human.
In my opinion, “true Ai,” should be a program capable of; creating, free thinking, evolving, developing and consciously assessing things, in the same way as a human being.
To be clear, I think that, “perfect Ai,” should be able to perform a test, this test I’ve coined, “The Larsen Test.”
In my opinion, “a perfect Ai,” should be able to take someone’s daily journal then based on their previous entries, write the entry for the next day, in exactly the same way as the diaries author. In fact, a perfect Ai should be able to input a required amount of data, into it’s, “psyche,” and then sit down, side by side with the user and predict the forthcoming journal entry. This test of an Ai’s accuracy, I’ve called, “The Larsen Test.”
To be clear, this means that an Ai should be able to analyze someone’s writing and then write the exact same diary entry, side by side with the user, for the upcoming day. Perhaps also with the assistance of having the computer spend a day, perhaps locked in a chamber, with the user, as not to create any new memories for the user. However, this would require the user to input the previous journal entries, so that the computer could analyze the user’s daily writing and then predict the next day’s journal entry. I’m calling this, “The Larsen Test.” Furthermore, I plan on developing an Ai which does this, sometime next Winter, on ArtificialIntelligenceProject.com. I’m calling this app, “an Automated diary app,” so to speak…. (Coming soon.)
Furthermore, I believe this is the truest form of Ai, “human-like Ai,” or what I call, “true Ai.”
The Implications of Ai
So what’s the purpose of Ai? Because this technology could be used for an infinite number of purposes, once it’s created and redefined. If and when, “a functional Ai,” is created you could manipulate the variables to create; off the charts intelligence, speed up processing, or do a number of things to make the machine, no longer human……. or to warp human thought itsein itself…. or even to simulate worldly conditions.
In this way, life itself, “distorts and bends,” the concept of Ai as well as, “natural history,” which also becomes a component of the best possible, “Ai’s.”
Nevertheless, this theory also represents a second type of Ai, an Ai which would be, “non human intelligence.” While I’ve coined the previous term, “true Ai,” to represent, “human intelligence,” this other form of Ai, “robotic Ai,” would represent potentially greater intelligence but rely strictly on empirical data.
Robots with solar panels, sleeping in order to recharge? That’s a lot realer then some people might think……
I am by no means the smartest man alive, I consider intelligence an asset stupidity boasted about….. however, I believe that this technology is possible right now and I’m personally working to build it, everyday. This leads me to believe as well…… that we may be seeing all sorts of Ai, frequently in our daily lives, very soon.
The Purpose of Ai (Space Travel)
The purpose of Ai comes down to one over-arching premise, space travel.
I predict that Ai technology, as stated in article 1…. will be used for many things in the near future. Ai could even become, “the benchmark for human purpose,” in itself. I believe this is because, in many ways, Ai represents a mountaintop of biological evolution due to the fact that, “future Ai’s,” could then go deep into space, essentially impregnating the universe with human thought…..
“Ai,” traveling on rockets, voyaging to planets far beyond our solar system, unreachable in 10 million human life-times… could actually happen.
Today, the nearest hospitable planet, is around 20 quadrillion miles away. That’s the number set after a trillion, perhaps you probably thought it was, “a zillion,” but it’s actually, “a quadrillion.” The number system goes; millions, billions, trillions, quadrillions.
Nevertheless, the closest hospitable planet is around 20 quadrillion miles away.
Now, what that means is that it would take a rocket traveling in excess of 1 million miles / per hour, over 100 million years, to get to the nearest hospitable planet…… HOWEVER, the fastest rockets on Earth cannot travel that fast….. (yet)…….. So, unless human kind goes on a 100 million year long journey, through un-chartered space, where we could essentially evolve into blobs, before even setting foot on a new planet, or get sucked into a worm hole, or killed by a meteorite….. then there’s a significantly higher probability… that the human race will be BETTER OFF sending robots on deep space missions (perhaps equipped with biological matter).
Robots traveling to other planets? But what if…. these robots, became Earth’s dominant species?……
Hunny, calm down, I’ve been waiting for you to ask that all day.
In fact, a combination of robots and biology, would then likely become the strongest potential outcome…… Furthermore, in theory, this Ai could then grow smarter than humans and figure all of that out on it’s own. However, this is particularly useful in terms of theoretical science and deep space travel…… I’m straying off topic, but it’s an interesting thought! Downloading your brain into a robot body on Mars!
(Battery technology… or food? Think about it….)
Think about it, regardless of what we do as humans……. our planet will eventually die. The sun will burn out or a meteor will strike, Earth will perish…. Meaning, that the only way as a species, that we might be able to share our experiences here on Earth, on the longest of universal timelines; may be to actually send robots to other planets, to create new societies…. in our, or their, image.
That’s really the pinnacle of human purpose, if you really think about it. Imagine, Ai technology, gaining the ability to spread; our minds, ideas, and existence, throughout the universe. That’s the evolutionary course our species seems to have chosen anyway….. an engineering course of evolution.
My Ai 1.0 Model…
Now, lets discuss my first Ai model…..
My Ai 1.0 model, (on ArtificialIntelligenceProject.com) outputs things that have been inputted into it, at a ratio of 1 to 1. This model is mostly for demonstration purposes and I’ll discuss that later on, again.
Version 1.0 is on ArtificialintelligenceProject.com and I designed it to illustrate, “my concept of Ai,” ……. (I’m sure I’ve lost a few readers already, but don’t be afraid to skip back to part 1 of Civilians News’ ongoing Ai series, “Why Artificial Intelligence is Possible – Part 1.”)
So, back to actually building Ai. In part 1, I outlined some key formula’s, that I’ve dug up through philosophical discourse, over the years. This form of theorizing has led me to take on the project myself….. These equations, I’m calling, “psychology equations,” and they are a massively pivotal step towards Ai. These equations represent a melding of computer science and psychology, with a focus on psychology, albeit another, “inexact science.”
Psych. Equations: Where Computer Science Meets Psychology
So far, I’ve outlined some key theories behind the project and here they are;
- Herd Theory.
- Expectations + Reality = Emotions.
- Pride + Ego, creates emotional triggers, combined with, “herd theory.” (I describe this in further detail, in Part 3.)
- Intelligence is equal to: variance + general skill level….
I’ve dug up a plethora of these, “keys to Ai” over the years. This is what led me to undertake the project of building my own Ai and creating ArtificialIntelligenceProject.com.
Most recently, I came to one that actually has become, “the hulcrux,” of this experiment, which I’m also taking credit for;
“Personality = Morality, (or ongoing sub conscious disputes there of) + Intelligence (where intelligence…. is equal to a combination of; variance + general/avg. skill level).”
I’ll explain this theory more in depth later… but for the moment… I’m crowning this formula as my intellectual peak of achievement, in my Ai research, thus far….. I call this, “the personality theory.” This is my formula for a human personality…….. and the centerpiece for my model, which I’m using to build my next Ai’s.
Nevertheless, as far as actually programming it, we’ve just begun building it, 2 months ago. I should say.
Ai WILL BE INVENTED SOON
I believe that this project is utterly possible, difficult, but possible….. I have a solid model already outlined, and with fair certainty, I can say it will work (one day)…. As far as the programming, again that’s going to be a process, but I’m working on it everyday (and so are a whole bunch of big companies.)
My Ai 1.0 Model… An illustration of Ai Technology
My Ai Version 1.0, I designed to, “illustrate the concept of Ai,” in practical terms. I know some people were surely lost, during my first article (and this article), but basically, version 1.0 works as you might assume it works….. You input data and it registers the data, then inputs your data into it’s, “mind,” then replies with a previously inputted response, and also a randomly generated emotional response, represented by the, “smiley face.” This process of retrieving previous inputs and responding with them, in this case represent the concept of memories, or things that the program has, “heard,” or, “learned to say,” from previous inputs…..
The next Ai I’m building however, will be called, “Ai 2.0,” and will be much more complicated. Again my version 1.0 was built to demonstrate these concepts, in preparation for a version 2.0… where I intend to implement more of these psychological formula’s, which I’m using as my keys to Ai.
