Haha, nope, I don't code, or do math. (I'll code one day when a super-easy-visual-PL is released). For now I use my buddy to do the code/math. He also knows physics and AI quite well. I can concentrate more on the mechanism.

Art...that's exactly what I said...I'll own a normal-ish pc and use Google's Cloud to do anything big. - I never have to maintain/upgrade to the latest....I'll simply use Google's many expensive new updated processors/storage/etc. ~ I'm so excited over Google Cloud.

A cluster is only useful for certain specific types of AI modelling… not for the novice or faint hearted lol.  You have to be running huge simulations before the network overhead/ lag times become irrelevant.

I agree with Art, just keep a decent tower/ desktop machine with a fast internet connection.  When AGI tech becomes generally available it will require a huge amount of resources, more than the average user can supply… just have a decent terminal ready… that includes a decent microphone, HD web cam etc.

It thunk... therefore it is!

I'm curious about your buddy. Assuming this isn't just another imaginary friend, it would be great if they could sign on here and talk to us directly. We could all exchange insights faster that way.

Did you see my simulated spiderTable learn to crawl? Or my simulated super-realistic baby randomly jiggle? He coded those by my instructions.

However I halted further work on the baby because I concluded by strong evidences that a body isn't needed, against my previous proposition that a body was definitely needed.

Yes I remember those demonstrations but I don't ever recall you mentioning an associate before. Maybe you did and I missed it, I'm not always paying attention.

Last I recall, Lock was looking to spend some coins to hire a programmer. If you indeed have a "friend" that can do it, so much the better!

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!
