    Not really practical without the internet. Nevertheless, it's taken a while.

    The boys at google are leaving no terns unstoned are they...

    ' Google, too, is hedging its bets. Although its latest advances in picture tagging are based on Hinton's deep-learning networks, it has other departments with a wider remit. In December 2012, it hired futurist Ray Kurzweil to pursue various ways for computers to learn from experience — using techniques including but not limited to deep learning.'

    Or presumably, waffling and bullshitting.

    We do it for free. Kurzweil talks out of his cyberarse for millions.

    I wonder if all of our dreaming about AI is a bit too optimistic. Sure, we can implement algorithms and even self-modifying algorithms for special cases, but throw a maniac with a sledgehammer or chainsaw up against an AI and see what happens.

    Ever look at the structure of a Purkinje cell? Basically a device with up to 200K inputs located in the cerebellum. What single logic device in silicon has 200K inputs? What does a Purkinje cell truth table look like?

    I remember reading Minsky's computation theory text where he discusses McCulloch-Pitts neurons and reflecting on how this "caricature model" was so unlike what the computer guys were implementing.

    And that's assuming it's pure digital and/or that it's totally linear. Also, I hear tell that we have more than one of these little buggers - is it millions or billions?

    We'll just have to ask nVidia and ATI to work that much harder on their GPUs

    14-15 million in the typical human adult was the best estimate I could find.

    He's a certifiable nut when it comes to his futurology. Pure fancy. But he did invent some foxy gadgets!

    Or 3d print a organic brain from initially animal brain stem cells maybe crows, parrots and dolphins.

    Ever look at the Loebner Prize? That has to be pretty much AI in reverse. IA or something.

    Or a ruination (oh, that's right, my story in that other thread uses that word-could it be a pun?)

    I am going off roos and am more into echidna's and naked molerats.

    Off course Mary still has a chance if she promises not to eat all of the cream cake before she jumps out of it.

    more into echidna's


    More into echidna's what? You'd better be careful. The spiny anteater is known to be very jealous of his property.
