Tyler too eager ? in Forum Feedback

Ranch posted saying that Tyler is posting a lot of stuff and I was thinking the same. I know a couple of the sources double up stories some times so I could remove one of those.

The main reason she is posting more is that the replacement for Robots.net (Robohub) is posting a lot more that we used to get. These are really full articles. In fact they probably post enough from that one source to keep us up to date.

Any thoughts everyone ?

mini a.i puzzles in General AI Discussion

this thread will be about mini a.i puzzles, how way the brain solves problems and paradoxes.

1st puzzle : is sacrifice able
if you have old very used shoes you don't care if it is raining if you go to work with them
if you use them as brakes will biking BUT if they are new and expensive you would be
what makes the brain classify an object as high value, and what make it be extra careful for it ?

Cool stuff that's happening. in General AI Discussion

1stly, I'm sorry I just noticed my image hosting website shrunk my images, here is them all beautifully uploaded:

2cdly, I have a business meeting with a business analyst on August the 3rd, to show my presentation to (my AI robot video and a demo of it in a baby doll, including empirical AI boundaries), to fund me a building, material such as IBM processors and a humanoid robot, and employees.

Being human in General Chat

Something is bugging me for the last few days since I wrote a hostile post to one of our members.

I noticed that considerable percent of people (including me) visiting this site has this or that mental disorder. Occasionally we hit the wire, provoking a fight. So how tuff other people should be on us, when this happens? How should other people treat our differences in our social skills? How many warnings should we receive before taking percausion measures? Should we be trated equally to other, healthy members?

Is this a site that walks over mentally impaired people, just to mainain a high quality of content? Is there a line that we shouldn't ever, ever cross, no matter to how hard for us is to stick to reality? How much patience do we really deserve?

I'm interested in your opinions.

A peaceful world for Robots (Simulated robotic game) in General Project Discussion

The project called Beneath a Binary Sky. It's a programming game, in which player creates robots and set them to live in the world.

Unless similar projects, it simulates a peaceful world in which robots should cultivate to make food. They should reproduce children if they want to prevent extinction!

Beneath a Binary Sky can be used as a tool for researching in Artificial Intelligence (specially Intelligent Agent), or simply as a high level game for programmers.

See its website for more information: http://binary-sky.com

If you found any problems, please report them on Github's issues page: https://github.com/aidin36/beneath-a-binary-sky/issues

Feel free to contact me if you had any suggestions or found any problems: aidin at aidinhut dot com

Wish you happiness and peace (:

Big in AI Programming

Right in the middle, there's something like GTA (Gran Theft Auto). It is a simulation of the world. Unlike a video game, however, this simulation is usually paused. The system can choose to run parts of this simulation if it wants to test/imagine a situation. The system can also modify any aspect of any entity of this simulation, as you would in Unity IDE for example. If you do a bit of game development, you already know that we often use Entity-Component-System for storing the world state in games. An entity is nothing but a group of components defining its behavior and its state.

Around this "paused simulation", we have a connection gate. The system will always connect what it feels (through its sensors) to the paused simulation. Each of these connections means "this particular perception is due to this particular entity". Sometimes, connections are made automatically (hey look, this cloud looks like a dog). Sometimes, the system decides to make connections (if I want, I can see two black profiles, or one white vase). Anyway, these connections are always associated to a strong or weak probability (look at her, I'm pretty sure she's more than 50 years old). These probabilities are part of bayesian networks.

Below the paused simulation and the sensor connection gate, there is the ongoing activities group. Each ongoing activity has its own desktop, which keeps track of related goals and achievements. Desktops can be paused, or they can be currently running. There are always calling for system resources (they want to be running). They have fast access to the data they need, depending on their purpose. For example, you can have a car driving desktop, which has fast access to anything road related. They are responsible for preparing and maintaining a list of possible next actions.

Jumping from desktop to desktop (depending of which one requires most attention), there's a focus. When the focus arrives on a desktop, it reads the list of possible next actions and make it flow through the system's emotion grid. If one of the possible next actions makes a hi-score, it is engaged. If none is satisfying, the desktop is asked to investigate further. Then, focus jumps elsewhere.

Above everything, there's the system's memory. It is a perception provider, based on perceptions provided. It is made of sequences of events. When events happens in the system, a sequence (containing these events) is excited and pops the rest of the sequence up (if I say one two three o'clock, four o'clock ..., what do you say? -> rock). The system's emotion grid is part of the memory. It's made of a lot of tiny modifiers. Each modifier is attached to sequence, and carries an emotional charge resulting from previous experiences.

Finally, the "skin" of the system is the sensor fabric. There are sensors outside the mind, and inside the mind. Sensors which are outside the mind are like eyes, ears, ...etc. Sensors which are inside the mind react to events and activities inside the system, so the system can feel what's happening inside of itself, observe itself, and evolve.

The World's End

The World's End in Robots in Movies

The World's End is a 2013 British comic science fiction film directed by Edgar Wright, written by Wright and Simon Pegg, and starring Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Rosamund Pike and Eddie Marsan. The film follows a group of friends who discover an alien invasion during an epic pub crawl in their home town.

Gary King (Simon Pegg), a middle-aged alcoholic, tracks down his estranged schoolfriends and persuades them to complete "the Golden Mile", a pub crawl encompassing the 12 pubs of their hometown of Newton Haven. The group had previously attempted the crawl as teenagers in 1990 but failed to reach the final pub, The World's End.

Gary picks a fight with a teenager and knocks his head off, exposing a blue blood-like liquid and subsequently exposing him as an alien android. Gary's friends join him and fight more androids, whom they refer to as "blanks" to disguise what they are talking about.

From Movies to Reality: How Robots Are Revolutionizing Our World in Articles

Robots were once upon a time just a work of human imagination. Found only in books and movies, not once did we think a time would come where we would be able to interact with robots in real world. Eventually, in fact rapidly, the innovations we only dreamt of are now becoming a reality. Quoting the great Stephen Hawking "This is a glorious time to be alive for scientists". It is indeed the best time for the technology has become more and more sophisticated that its growing power might even endanger humanity.

Robot Overlords

Robot Overlords in Robots in Movies

Not long after the invasion and occupation of Earth by a race of powerful robots wanting human knowledge and ingenuity, humans are confined to their homes. Leaving without permission would be to risk their lives. Monitored by the electronic implants in their necks, the robot sentries are able to track the movements of humans in order to control them. And if any person comes out of their home, they are given warnings by the robot sentries to get inside their home. If they do not comply, they are shot immediately.
