Examples of concepts that are grounded in the physical world

All concepts have their root in the physical world. You could say they are grounded in the real world. Here are examples of that: “rough“ Physical meaning: having an uneven or irregular surface Abstract examples: He’s in a rough situation. – rough things are uneven and not smooth, not as easy “tough” Physical definition: able… Continue reading Examples of concepts that are grounded in the physical world

We can brute force AGI with a realistic physics simulator

“An unknown, but potentially large, fraction of animal and human intelligence is a direct consequence of the perceptual and physical richness of our environment, and is unlikely to arise without it”. – John Locke (1632-1704) As we already know, AGI is probably the hardest problem mankind can work on and we do not have a… Continue reading We can brute force AGI with a realistic physics simulator

An exploration on the minimum requirements for a simulator to teach computers grounded meaning

what is the minimum physics emulation needed for grounded learning Some form of ener A body is needed for the agent to separate itself from environment. Touch sensors on the body to interact with objects. This would enable some form 2 pincers on a hand to grab and hold objects. Pain The agent would need… Continue reading An exploration on the minimum requirements for a simulator to teach computers grounded meaning

What do all these different versions of Artificial Intelligence (AI) mean?

There are many variations of the word AI thrown around and I just want to clarify the differences. Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) AGI is the goal of building AI systems.  Humans want to build Artificial General Intelligences that can do a wide variety of tasks just like humans can do.  This has been the goal… Continue reading What do all these different versions of Artificial Intelligence (AI) mean?
