Rewrite (rule based system) in General Project Discussion

After a lot of theorizing, finally something concrete from my lab: Exp-Log's little brother, "Rewrite" is marked ready for production use. While Exp-Log is aiming to optimize and tame the order of rule application, Rewrite practice more of a minimalist setup, where rules are applied in strict top-to-bottom order. In fact, I liked this minimalism so much that I decided to make a version of Rewrite ready for production use. Today, after two months of coding struggle, I finally uploaded the production version to dedicated GitHub project home page.

Rewrite may be used as a curiosity computing platform, formula application system, proof checker, problem solver, and pretty much anywhere where any kind of computation is required, as long as slower performance on intensive computations doesn't go beyond limits of user patience.

You can try it in online playground here: Provided examples include some introductory material, equality predicate, branching choice, Boolean calculator, proof checking, SAT solver, and action planning, while users are invited to experiment with their own code designs (you may want to use an external editor with bracket matching for this purpose).

The project official home page with instructions is here:

Have fun!

Defective method of intelligence in General AI Discussion

So given a model of artificial intelligence.  (For example AIXIA - the Brain child of Marcus Hutter.)
We need to actually see it in action and fully test what goes on,  because then we can see, have we created a man or a monster!
or the other problem,  is man ACTUALLY a monster?   Not sure.    

But if someone ever got ai to work,  we could learn more about intelligence in general, for all things.

And totally defunct all of civilization as we know it.

And bore ourselves with our own obfuscatedness.   (Everything in plain sight, why not such a thrill anymore???)

I got DALL-E 2 access 2 days ago in General Chat

You can see 4 that I just uploaded above that are reallllllly impressive....I made those (with the AI lol).

Just look at my account to find the other 3.

Is natural language too verbose? in General Chat

I've been trying to learn to speed read and the methods are obviously to increase the chunking size of reading multiple words, if not entire sentences rather than a single word at a time. I then thought what if we do the opposite. Literally shrink the amount of words in a sentence? I mean that's already happening with text messaging now, right?

Symbolic representation of data can be enhanced from natural language by applying concepts like adjectives into single expressions such as “an old man” could be represented as “man” and even the individuals ethnicity could be expressed by modifying other characters or again imposing another modification to the letter m, e.g. “man” could represent an older man from China that is married. This type of codification compacts information very elegantly and applying this kind of notion to adverbs could work as well. But imagine stating a young married man from china is running from the police as “man++” or a older married man was walking to the store as: “man+

You could change the plus sign colors for different location types. This kind of symbolization could shrink the amount of verbosity in current literature. I mean technical books could shrink from hundreds of pages to less than hundred.

Obviously we would still need to speak English in the verbose way we do now, but we could represent it in a compact way.

Documentary Film on Algorithmic Composer David Cope - OPUS COPE in General AI Discussion

Hi all,

My team and I are excited to share with this community our film 'Opus Cope: An Algorithmic Opera,' which celebrates the groundbreaking work of algorithmic composer David Cope and the profound ways in which humans and machines (AI) can be creative.

David has been a firm believer that creativity is everywhere, and his work reflects these values of compassion and understanding, where humans and AI are not necessarily at odds with each other. This collaboration between human and machine resulted from his own creative block in the 80's which led to the first algorithmically composed opera.

'Opus Cope' has screened in festivals across the globe, winning the jury prize at Rock This Town Festival in France, and is scheduled for a national TV release on PBS in the US and streaming platforms like Amazon Prime and Tubi later this year.

We will keep you posted once the film is available to watch, but in the meantime, feel free to check out our trailer:

And learn more about the film at


Musical visions into machine creativity as algorithmic composer David Cope shares past, present, and future inventions.

What a Google AI chatbot said that convinced an engineer it was sentient in AI News

A Google engineer who was suspended after claiming that an artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot had become sentient has now published transcripts of conversations with it, in a bid “to better help people understand” it as a “person”.

Youtube is so annoying in General Chat

I just discovered something really upsetting. All my downloaded videos (a few thousand) using youtube downloader, are not full quality as I compared a frame to the same frame on youtube. Even the new tool I've used to download the last few hundred videos, y2mate, is better but not reaching full quality. This is OK for some my videos, but not for others. YT already degrades uploaded videos, which is just profoundly compounding now. There is YT premium, but I just realized it is only for phone or tablet:

phone/tablet >

And I'm not sure it gives you the full video yet either. Or one you can watch truly offline without YT needing to decrypting it.

I do have access to many of the YT videos....I can SEE the HD content, but now I need to go search all their names, and somehow capture them in perfect condition. Any tool to do this? Search google, find the same video, takes me a lot of time, or to realize it is not showing up and LOST. Or even to find the same pic online and the song elsewhere and stitch them together :P lol! I need a scroller AI to google search each video in my folder....

BUT next, I know screen recorders work but I don't know if they can capture exactly every frame and pixel by pixel, it can lag at times for example. Yet it seems plausible since I have all pixels displaying, is this possible? Any expert computerist here know if such perfect screen capture can be made?

I know some content can be found on other sites in even higher quality, or even asking users to hand deliver them (lol), but still...

Embodied Intelligence in AI Programming

I found this paper on Octopus Neurobiology and it is interesting that it describes how an Octopus' brain is architected and how its motor control for its arms is not centralized as it is in a mammalian brain. The author applies some concepts of robotics to describe the efficacy of the animal's neurobiological approach.

Real Steel

Real Steel in Robots in Movies

Real Steel is a 2011 American science-fiction sports film starring Hugh Jackman and Dakota Goyo.

In 2020, human boxers have been replaced by robots. Charlie Kenton, a former boxer, owns "Ambush", but loses it in a fight against a bull belonging to promoter and carnival owner Ricky, who rigged the fight to mess with Charlie as he sees him as a joke, partially because he beat him up the last time they competed for bailing on the bet. Having made a bet that Ambush would win as a result, Charlie now has a debt to Ricky he can't pay—which he runs out on.

Ninety-seven years later, Andrew, a kind-hearted young man, wakes up in a ruined world. VanDorne and Walsh, still in Kronos, watch Andrew meet Calia, a teenage girl who seeks the last human settlement, the Aurora. Though Calia is first reluctant to let Andrew accompany her, the two later fall in love.

Eva in Chatbots - English

Our chatbot - Eva - was created by Stanusch Technologies SA. Eva, just 4 weeks after launch, competed in Swansea (UK) for the Loebner Prize 2019 with programs such as Mitsuku and Uberbot! Now, she is in the top 10 most-humanlike bots in the world! :)

Is it possible for Eva to pass the turing test? It's creators believe it is.

Eva has her own personality: she is 23 years old, she is a student from the Academy of Physical Education in Katowice (Lower Silesia district/Poland). She is a very charming and nice young women, who loves to play volleyball and to read books.
