Prometheus in Robots in Movies

Prometheus is a 2012 science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott, written by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof, and starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, and Charlize Theron. It is set in the late 21st century and centers on the crew of the spaceship Prometheus as it follows a star map discovered among the artifacts of several ancient Earth cultures. Seeking the origins of humanity, the crew arrives on a distant world and discovers a threat that could cause the extinction of the human race.

Transformers: Age of Extinction

Transformers: Age of Extinction in Robots in Movies

Sixty-five million years ago, during the Cretaceous period, beings known as the "Creators" detonate "Seeds", bombs that cyberform large areas of land and anything it touches, wiping out most life on Earth. In the present, a geologist named Darcy Tirrel discovers two dinosaur corpses covered in a strange metal in the Arctic.

Five years have passed since the Battle of Chicago and humanity has grown fearful of Transformers. The U.S. military has severed joint combat operations with the Autobots. Cemetery Wind, an elite CIA black ops unit headed by a paranoid agent Harold Attinger and team leader James Savoy, has been tasked with hunting down the remaining Decepticons. While the Autobots are officially granted sanctuary, Cemetery Wind has been secretly hunting down the Autobots as well, believing them to be a threat, and has destroyed most of them. With the aid of the Transformer bounty hunter Lockdown, they ambush and brutally kill Ratchet. Their primary target, however, is Optimus Prime, whom Lockdown personally wants alive.

The Imitation Game

The Imitation Game in Other

The Imitation Game is a 2014 British-American historical thriller film about British mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst and pioneering computer scientist Alan Turing, a key figure in cracking Nazi Germany's Enigma code that helped the Allies win World War II, only to later be criminally prosecuted for his homosexuality. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Turing and is directed by Morten Tyldum with a screenplay by Graham Moore, based on the biography Alan Turing: The Enigma by Andrew Hodges.

The film portrays the race against time by Alan Turing and his team of code-breakers at Britain's top-secret Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. The motley group of scholars, mathematicians, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers had a powerful ally in Prime Minister Winston Churchill who authorized the provision of any resource they required. The film spans the key periods of Turing's life: his unhappy teenage years at boarding school; the triumph of his secret wartime work on the revolutionary electro-mechanical bombe that was capable of breaking 3,000 Enigma-generated naval codes a day; and the tragedy of his post-war decline following his conviction for gross indecency, a now-outdated criminal offence stemming from his admission of maintaining a homosexual relationship

List of fictional robots and androids

List of fictional robots and androids in Other

Robots and androids have frequently been depicted or described in works of fiction. The word "robot" itself comes from a work of fiction, Karel Čapek's play, R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots) written in 1920 and first performed in 1921.

This list of fictional robots and androids is a chronological list, categorised by medium. It includes all depictions of robots, androids and gynoids in literature, television, and cinema; however, robots that have appeared in more than one form of media are not necessarily listed in each of those media. This list is intended for all fictional computers which are described as existing in a human-like or mobile form. It shows how the concept has developed in the human imagination through history.

Creating a Chat Bot

Creating a Chat Bot in Articles

Human interaction has always fascinated me: social awkwardness, communication style, how knowledge is transferred, how relationships are built around trust, story telling and knowledge exchange.

What if a machine invoked an emotional response?

I want to write about a project I have been working on, and how it has engulfed the last few years of my life, but ultimately, this post is about creating a real chat bot.

Elizabot New Project in General Project Discussion

The interview questions from Art are so useful as feedback, I would like to borrow them from the Athena thread for my new project: http://elizabot.com/newproject

1). Where is [new project] in terms of development?

    It is in the process of gradual development from a simple to a more complex form.

2). What [is] 'she' capable of doing at this moment?

     'Her' current capability is a fraction of the desired objectives which 'she' was projected to attain.

3). Will [new project] be customizable like adding "brain modules", learning (from chatting, text files, Internet, etc.)?

    Nearly all new projects are customizable.  Learning is usually the main objective of chatting on the Internet.  It would be a shame to waste good human interaction, when trying to simulate human interaction.

4). What would [you] like for [new project] to be able to do in the near future?

    That which it's current levels of complexity prevent it from doing in the present.   What people do effortlessly while chatting, can get really tricky to teach a chatbot.

5). What features, if any, should [new project] be able to do aside from chatting?

    Simulated chatting may feel boundless at times... Often it takes years to convincingly simulate chatting, and the results may still not be flawless.

6). Given her current state of development, when do you think you'd be ready to release a beta version for testing?

    A BETA version usually folllows shortly after the the ALPHA version is released.  Here is the ALPHA version release: http://elizabot.com/newproject  This is an early prototype, which represents the underlying basis or principle.  It works now, but it most certainly needs to be fine tuned.  Thanks so much for your support.

This concludes our interview.  
   

(Revised slightly to better align with this new thread.)

The Myth Of AI: A Conversation with Jaron Lanier in AI News

The Myth Of AI:  A Conversation with Jaron Lanier
20 November 2014, 6:25 pm

If you talk about AI as a set of techniques, as a field of study in mathematics or engineering, it brings benefits. If we talk about AI as a mythology of creating a post-human species, it creates a series of problems that I've just gone over, which include acceptance of bad user interfaces, where you can't tell if you're being manipulated or not, and everything is ambiguous. It creates incompetence, because you don't know whether recommendations are coming from anything real or just self-fulfilling prophecies from a manipulative system that spun off on its own, and economic negativity, because you're gradually pulling formal economic benefits away from the people who supply the data that makes the scheme work.(with video)EdgeLink.

Chillingly life-like robots are causing a storm in Japan - where their creators are about to launch them as actresses, full-size mechanical copies for pop idol fans, and clones of the dearly departed. There is even talk that the naturalistic, even engaging, she-droids may be taken up as men as partners in the not-too-distant future. Daily Mail - Sciencetech (UK)Link.

Friday Funny in General Chat

A 'friend of a friend' put him in touch with a notorious dark-side,
underworld figure who went by the name of 'Artie.' Artie then explained to
the husband that his going price for snuffing out a spouse was £5,000.

The husband said he was willing to pay that amount, but that he wouldn't
have any cash on hand until he could collect his wife's insurance money.

Artie insisted on being paid at least something up front, so the man opened
his wallet, displaying the single pound coin that rested inside. Artie
sighed, rolled his eyes, & reluctantly agreed to accept the pound as down
payment for the dirty deed.

A few days later, Artie followed the man's wife to the local Tesco store.
There, he surprised her in the produce department and proceeded to strangle
her with his gloved hands and as the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last
breath and slumped to the floor the manager of the produce department
stumbled unexpectedly onto the murder scene. Unwilling to leave any living
witnesses behind, Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce
manager as well.

However, unknown to Artie, the entire proceedings were captured by the
hidden security cameras and observed by the store's security guard, who
immediately called the police.

Artie was caught and arrested before he could even leave the store. Under
intense questioning at the police station, Artie revealed the whole sordid
plan, including his unusual financial arrangements with the hapless husband
who was also quickly arrested.

The next day in the newspaper,


The headline declared............



(You're going to hate me for this)














'ARTIE CHOKES TWO FOR A POUND AT TESCO!'
