opencog in Developers

We're creating an open source framework for Artificial General Intelligence, intended to one day express general intelligence at the human level and beyond. That is: We're undertaking a serious effort to build a thinking machine.

As compared to most academic and industry AI research, the OpenCog project has a very different focus. We are not centrally concerned with building more accurate classification algorithms, or more efficient computer vision systems, or better language processing or information retrieval algorithms, etc. Neither are we centrally concerned with building a program that performs only one specific task like play chess, diagnose diseases, answer trivia questions, or drive a car. We are concerned with generic intelligence and the inter-related cognitive processes it entails.

Eugene Goostman machine convinced 33.33% of a new set of Judges at The Royal Society 6-7 June 2014, following its 29.17% performance at Bletchley Park in 2012.

Eugene Goostman has done it again! *No, it has bettered what it did previously: the machine entry convinced one third of 30 Judges that it was human in Turing tests carried out at The Royal Society London, 6-7 June 2014.

The Superintelligent Will

The Superintelligent Will in Papers

[Motivation and instrumental rationality in advanced artificial agents]

This paper discusses the relation between intelligence and motivation in artificial agents, developing and briefly arguing for two theses. The first, the orthogonality thesis, holds (with some caveats) that intelligence and final goals (purposes) are orthogonal axes along which possible artificial intellects can freely vary—more or less any level of intelligence could be combined with more or less any final goal. The second, the instrumental convergence thesis, holds that as long as they possess a sufficient level of intelligence, agents having any of a wide range of final goals will pursue similar intermediary goals because they have instrumental reasons to do so. In combination, the two theses help us understand the possible range of behavior of superintelligent agents, and they point to some potential dangers in building such an agent.

Essays in English yield information about other languages
23 July 2014, 3:13 pm

Grammatical habits in written English reveal linguistic features of non-native speakers' languages, researchers report. The work could enable computers chewing through relatively accessible documents to approximate data that might take trained linguists months in the field to collect. But that data could in turn lead to better computational tools.
