We have car companies such as Waymo, GM, and Telsa who have each put in 10’s of millions of miles on the road, but we still don’t have ubiquities autonomous vehicles. Countries are still moving slow because they are trying to be safe, which makes sense. We do have autonomous regions at the city level.… Continue reading Where is our autonomous driving state?
The goalpost for Artificial Intelligence has never moved
When you read about Artificial Intelligence, there is always a huge debate on whether or not we are getting closer to true human level Artificial Intelligence. Lots of people claim that AI is completely possible, its just that we as a human race keep moving the goalpost, or changing the definition of AI. And so… Continue reading The goalpost for Artificial Intelligence has never moved
What does it mean “to know”?
I know who you are. I know what you mean. I know that earth is a planet in our solar system. I know I will die someday. I know. To know something means that you understand something, that you have knowledge of something. To know means we have an understanding of what we know versus… Continue reading What does it mean “to know”?
why conceptnet won’t work
Conceptnet is a project I’ve been dreaming about on/off since at least 2013. I wanted to list out why it won’t work so I can potentially talk myself out of dreaming about it. There is no known data structure or algorithm to contain the kind of data that I am thinking about for this idea.… Continue reading why conceptnet won’t work
The human mind as a simulation engine
What is it thats makes the human mind unique? One hypothesis I’ve been building up is that the mind has a limitlessly inspectable simulation engine. Think of a video game engine like Grand Theft Auto, where you can walk around and explore a world, only infinitely. From the first day of life, all organisms are… Continue reading The human mind as a simulation engine
Homeostasis is core to intelligence
You cannot have an intelligence being without the organism being able to control for homeostasis. Homeostasis means “the tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, especially as maintained by physiological processes.” All organisms live and survive by the actions they do in their environment to maintain homeostasis. For a living organism, homeostasis means… Continue reading Homeostasis is core to intelligence
Turing Test Crypto Coin idea
Could you create a cryptocurrency where you incentivize people to look at computer training data and evaluate if it is correct or not? Think of it like mechanical turk for machine learning data with crypto. The main training data set would be an open source data set used to evaluate if a computer is intelligent… Continue reading Turing Test Crypto Coin idea
The Turing test is the best and worst artificial intelligence test we’ve got
There has been a lot of debate on whether the Turing test is a good test of artificial intelligence. The good Without having a formal definition of intelligence, Alan Turing created a test using the closest thing we could use to evaluate computers, humans. A computer talking to a human via a terminal is a… Continue reading The Turing test is the best and worst artificial intelligence test we’ve got
