A computational definition of understanding

Computer scientists and researchers constantly argue on whether a computer can ever understand anything like humans. One of the main reasons for the confusion is because the definition of “to understand” is not clear enough to implement in a computer.From the Merrimack dictionary, “To Understand ” means: to know the meaning of (something, such as… Continue reading A computational definition of understanding

Autonomous vehicles will NOT bring us true Artificial Intelligence

There is a fierce debate on whether autonomous vehicles are possible because driving requires all the sophistication of human intelligence. The argument is there are too many variables and situations that require human level intelligence, therefore either we never get autonomous vehicles or we solve artificial general intelligence (AGI). We will absolutely have autonomous vehicles… Continue reading Autonomous vehicles will NOT bring us true Artificial Intelligence

Tailoring your information diet on reddit

I love reddit for surfing the internet around specific topics. I subscribe to 30+ topics like /r/cogsci and /r/compsci. I I noticed that reading reddit would change my mood, I would become more anxious and excited reading about certain topics. A lot of my subreddits are technology and science related and so I would get… Continue reading Tailoring your information diet on reddit

Heuristics to know if we have reached true human level artificial intelligence

The Turing test is the main test we use to test computer intelligence, and its not very good. There are other heuristics we can use to know if a computer system has reached human level intelligence: it can recognize itself versus the environment. It can recognize the concept of “I”, the self. It most likely… Continue reading Heuristics to know if we have reached true human level artificial intelligence
