My First Ai Model
I built my first Ai model, at ArtificialintelligenceProject.com/version1.
But what is Artificial Intelligence? Well, “the first Ai,” (computer learning systems), won’t be like in the movies, instead the first Ai, will most likely exist within the digital realm.
The first Ai will be programs….. Like on Artificialintelligenceproject.com.….. And in fact, many such programs, are ALREADY in use today.
For example, many internet search engines are similar to Ai technology. Search engines online, clumping together words in order to create, “the best suited outputs,” tailored to each individual user’s inputs, in many ways, 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 it. How do you talk? What do you choose to say?
How do you write? What do you write about? How much do you typically write? And why?
All of these things represent varying levels of intelligence and require thought. In essence, all of these things are aspects of, “Ai technology.” However, I personally view the concept of Ai, in it’s purest form. It is of my opinion, that 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 and the computer reacts accordingly.)
However, for me personally….. Ai is another level of computing. In fact, Ai could be any varying level of computerized intelligence, both big and small….. In essence, there’s a distinguishment here between Ai that is, “computer learning through intelligence and emotion,” versus wholly mechanical computer learning, in computer science…
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 the government, or 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?)……… (This brings forth yet another topic of morality, in and of itself, in terms of the science fiction surrounding robotic Ai, as well as the secrecy surrounding the tech industry entirely.)
So…. what is Ai? What is, “True Ai?”
And what is, “The Larsen Test?”
I like to think of (what I’ve titled), “true Ai,” as almost being human.
In my opinion, “true Ai,” should be a program capable of; creating, free thinking, evolving and consciously assessing, the same way as a human.
To be clear, I think that, “perfect Ai,” should be able to perform a test, which I’ve coined, “The Larsen Test.” This test, for which I’ve formulated, is similar to the infamous, “Turing Test,” in scientific nature.
In my opinion, “a perfect Ai,” should be able to take someone’s daily journal, then based on 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 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. This would require the user to input previous journal entries, so that the computer could analyze the user’s daily writing and in turn, predict the next day’s journal. I’m calling this, “The Larsen Test.” Furthermore, I plan on developing an app that does this, sometime next Winter, on ArtificialIntelligenceProject.com. I’m calling this app, “an Automated diary app,” so to speak…. (Coming soon.)
I believe this is the truest form of Ai. Human-like Ai.
The Implications of Ai
So what other implications might Ai technology have in the near future? (Other than automating everything from fast food restaurants, to someone’s writing, or thoughts.)
What is the purpose of Ai? Because essentially, this technology could be used in an infinite number of ways, once discovered. If and when, “a functional Ai,” is created, you could manipulate the variables to create off the charts intelligence, or speed up processing, or do a number of things to make the machine, no longer human……. or to warp human thought itself…..
In this way, life itself, “distorts and bends,” the entire concept of Ai.
This theory represents a second type of Ai, which would be, “non human intelligence.” While I’ve coined the term, “true Ai,” to represent, “human intelligence,” this, “robotic Ai,” would represent potentially greater intelligence.
Robots with solar panels, sleeping to recharge…….. is a lot realer then a lot of people might think right now…….
I am by no means the smartest man alive, I consider intelligence an asset stupidity boasted about….. However, I believe this technology is possible right now and I’m personally working to build it, everyday. This leads me to believe, that we may be seeing all sorts of Ai, much more frequently, in our daily lives, very soon.
The Purpose of Ai (Space Travel)
So basically, the premise of, “Ai,” comes down to, what is it’s purpose? What do you want to use it for? Say you created it, reverse engineered... the mind…. What would you use it for?
I predict this technology, as I stated in article 1…. will be used for many things, in the decades to come. Ultimately, Ai technology may even become something of a benchmark, “for human purpose,” in terms of defending the Earth from asteroids, or perhaps inhabiting a new planet all together. In many ways, Ai represents a mountaintop in biological evolution, predominantly because future Ai could be used to go on deep space missions. “Ai,” traveling on rockets, to planets far beyond our solar system, unreachable in 10 million human life-times… could actually happen. In many ways, Ai could possibly even fuse together with human biology, perhaps one day replacing the human race entirely, or planting human life on another planet…… While this potential future might seem scary at first, it could be kind of cool, once you really think about it….
The nearest hospitable planet, is around 20 Quadrillion miles away. That’s the number set after a trillion, you probably thought it was a zillion, but it’s actually a, “quadrillion.” It goes; millions, billions, trillions, quadrillions.
So the closest hospitable planet, is around 20 Quadrillion miles away. I have the notes/math somewhere, pardon me if I’m wrong, I don’t have my notes right now.
However, that means it would take a rocket, traveling around 1 million miles per hour, in excess of 100 million years, just to get there…… NEWS FLASH, the fastest rockets on Earth, don’t 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 getting to a new planet….. that there’s a significantly higher likelihood, the human race will be BETTER OFF, sending robots through deep space (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 me that, literally all day.
It seems that if Ai replaced humans, as the dominant creatures on Earth, in the event of a, “Terminator 2 scenario,” Ai would actually benefit from human biology’s generative and regenerative biological qualities. Meaning, robots could never fully replace humans as the dominant species because there are actually advantages to being a biological creature….. In fact, a combination of robots and biology would in all likelihood, be the strongest potential outcome…… In theory, this Ai would likely grow smarter than humans and figure 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!
(Battery technology or food? Think about it….)
This leads to a wide range of possibilities, technology speaking. Think about it, regardless of what we do as humans……. our planet will eventually die. This fate is inevitable. The sun will burn out, a meteor will strike, Earth will one day be gone…. Like it or not…… Meaning, that the only way we MIGHT be able to share our experiences on Earth, as human beings, 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. To spread our minds, and ideas, and existence, throughout the universe.
To go to space, is almost an innate desire of human kind. This leads me to theorize, that perhaps the purpose of life on Earth, is to become intellectually sophisticated enough, to protect the planet from threats in space….. Meaning, in a way, Ai technology and it’s ramifications for space travel, are one of the highest realms of human achievement…… (and perhaps the reason planet Earth, spawned our species entirely).
It’s my belief, that Ai could, or should, be used to take human life past the reaches of the Milky Way Galaxy and in essence, “impregnate” the rest of the universe with human intellect….. Too sci fi? Yeah, I know… it makes concentrating at work hard for me too.
For these reasons, sending an “Ai robot,” into deep space, could essentially become the crowning achievement for life on Earth. This in all likelihood, could occur during the centuries to come. However, the battery/solar technology required for such a mission, is still decades away from human development. Also, the visual components necessary for creating such a sophisticated, “robot,” to combine with Ai technology, are still decades away. Regardless, solar panels strapped to thinking robots, could be a very real and potentially near future….. in some form or another……This is the immediate future of Ai technology.
So that’s the practicality, or the functionality, of modern, “Ai technology,” as I see it today…..
My Ai 1.0 Model…
Now, lets discuss my first Ai model…..
My Ai 1.0 model, simply outputs things it has had inputted into it, at a ratio of 1 to 1. This model is for demonstration purposes and I’ll discuss this again later.
Version 1.0 is on ArtificialintelligenceProject.com and I designed it to illustrate, “my concept of Ai,” ……. (I’m sure I lost many readers already, so 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 the 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 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;
Expectations + Reality = Emotions,
Pride + Ego creates emotional triggers, or herd theory. (I described this in further detail in Part 3. Click here for that article.)
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, building my own Ai models and creating ArtificialIntelligenceProject.com.
Most recently, I came to one that actually has become, “the hulcrux,” of the experiment, that I’m also taking personal credit for;
“Personality = Morality, or ongoing sub conscious disputes there of, + Intelligence (where intelligence…. is equal to a combination between 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 it, “the personality theory.” This is my formula for a human personality…….. and the model I’m using to create my first Ai’s.
As far as actual programming, I haven’t gotten as far yet.
Ai WILL BE INVENTED SOON
I believe 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 as well, 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
Version 1.0, I designed to, “illustrate” the concept of Ai in practical terms. I know many people were surely lost in my first article (and this article), but basically, version 1.0 works as you might assume it works….. You input data into the app and it registers the input into its, “mind.” Model 1, then responds according to a 1:1 ratio, with the user. This Ai responds with a random emotional response, represented by the, “smiley,” along with a randomly outputted response, based off of it’s recorded inputs. These responses are randomly selected from the inputted response’s, which in this case represent the concept of memories or things the program has, “heard,” or, “learned to say,” from previous user inputs…..
This is my Ai version 1.0, built for illustration purposes (it’s easier to conceptualize when you see it.)….. My next Ai, the Ai 2.0 model, will be coming soon.
Ai 2.0 will be much more complicated, and I hope to pass the elusive Turing Test, with my 2.0 model, hopefully later this year. Again version 1.0 was built mostly to demonstrate this concept, in preparation for version 2.0… where I intend to implement my formula’s and, “keys to Ai.”
I’m going to store each new and upcoming version of my Ai model’s on sub URL’s, version 1 will forever be on, www.ArtificialIntelligenceProject.com/version1. Hopefully I’ll build some cooler ones soon. Version 2.0 is already in development and as I continue to build newer models, I’ll explain what I’m doing to refine the Ai’s, “thinking,” or, “evolution,” as this series continues… And hopefully, with any luck, I’ll think of some more ways to perhaps turn the Ai into a more practical device, in the future.
-William Larsen, stay posted, version 2.0 coming…. error message….. lol. Soon…..
