ED: The last array column is obviously a skip link, once indexed each row points to the next relevant row for that subject.  A simple loop only retrieves objects relevant to the subject; saves having to loop through the whole array searching.  I use a similar method for searching the dictionary, and index of a, aa, ab, ac, ad, pointing/ linking to the start/ end positions in the dictionary array. I don't think you will find a faster method... if you do let me know.

I mainly use top down splay trees which are a relatively recent invention. They look just like skip lists, but they rearrange themselves dynamically according to the actual search pattern, so those items that are searched for most often migrate to the shortest lists. I'm using them in dynamic structures handling millions of records at a time and the performance is phenomenal. They handle deletion as easily as insertion and its about 100 lines of C in total. (Actually they are so simple that when performance really matters I duplicate the splay tree code for each record type and have the compiler in-line and optimise everything resulting in a doubling of performance compared to calls to shared library functions with call-backs.)

However, you should never underestimate the performance of a simple linear search. As a general rule of thumb, if you are searching sets of less than 100 items, you might as well just use a linear search. By the time the compiler has optimised the hell out of it, it can beat any number of complex structures for smaller jobs. Also you can double its performance by using a linked list and keeping it sorted.

I'd settle for an intelligent conversation.

even a fairly dumb one that retains attention span context would be amazing already.

so, exponential mathematics, does reach the real practical world!   quantum computer anybody?

 It can be done at AAI, Artificial Animal intelligence. It will scale with better firmware and hardware. For sure.

 Meaning of life for me is a energy using device is to survive to the end of time. Since life is so bad at predicting the future
it make copies of its self and spread out. Surviving copy share genetic information to build better copies.
 Since smaller life replicated faster and will defeat bigger life. Two surviving life forms that having the anti microbe betting
attributes. That will be enhance to a level faster then microbe can adapt. Just like two point to give a leap frog direction to make the anti
microbe immune system in the child.
 the two adult immune factors will be close but the difference will give direction to improve.?

 Large silicon life may not have this problem.
 Silicon micro life may need too much energy to start small. Maybe only ant size and up? Unless there is better solvent for
silicon chemicals.

I don't think mainstream has detailed the definition of "life" enough to decipher when AI becomes alive. Everyone has their general feel for that. On youtube there's a dog robot that's learned how to walk. In the video their creators are kicking it around, making it fall. This has caused a movement to such a degree that a group has filed for AI rights. IMO present AI hasn't reached the level where I'd consider it alive, but we're not far away from that. Definitely within a decade when AI is extremely complex like humans, consisting of terabytes of complex analysis, which will definitely give each AI their own personality, way of expression & desires (emotions).

BTW it's said that human brain might have 1 or 2 petabytes, of which only a very small percentage is long-term memory. That's what I call sloppy memory. It's not equivalent to AI computer memory, unless we're talking about AI neural networking, which I'm not. So 100 TB of uncompressed non-NN AI memory will most likely be equivalent to at least a few petabytes of human brain memory. Compressed memory holds even more. Also lets not forget that humans don't have conscious access to that memory. The world record for the most digits a human has remember pi is 67890 digits, which is equivalent to about 55 KB (uncompressed) in hex.

Seven times... that old wives tale... hehe

42 = to the moon.
51 = to the sun
81 = 127,786 light-years
90 = 130.8 million light-years
103 = 93 billion light-years, width of the observable universe.

Maybe to create a true life?

Well, if an AGI itself can be considered to be a "true life", it just has to reproduce itself to create such one, right? :)
In this case, your example could also be reduced to the problem of self-reproduction.

Lol ok......

Recognition match. That big image looks like a dream I once had lol. I was going up millions of levels up high, and was this purple heavenly hangout round-a-bout I was at.

Perhaps that guy is worshiping an AI God in an effort to placate it once it really does arrive!!

You must not mention Roko's Basilisk.
