Exp-Log (a deductive system) in General Project Discussion

Introduction to expression logic formal language

[Intended audience]
Beginners in language parsing, term rewriting, and logic deduction

[Short description]
Languages can be seen as streams of symbols used to carry on, process, and exchange informations. Expression logic is also a language, but it is a general kind of metalanguage capable of describing and hosting any other language. Expression logic is also able to perform any intermediate data processing upon recognizing hosted languages. Being a general kind of metalanguage, expression logic represents all of the following:

  • Expression recognizer and generator
  • SMT solver
  • Deductive system
  • Term rewriting framework
  • Metatheory language formalization
These descriptions render expression logic as a general solution verifier and problem solver, which seems to be a required minimum characteristic to process a wider range of formal languages.

What if Atlantis is here today and nobody even knows in General Chat

What if there is a whole contininent full of people (But theres no monkeys allowed...  they say that there's no such thing as sea monkeys there.) UNDER THE WATER!  and its top secret.
If there was,  how would we even work it out?!?!?!?!?    Under the water is bigger than the biggest desert on the planet, so there is plenty of room for them to stay unnoticed... perhaps indefinitely.

GOES TO show... how little we really know for sure, as a common person in society where we currently are.

What if we are all just fed lies. in AI Programming

Everything we see, might be a lie, on the internet.

What if we have advanced technology already, but its been withheld from us.

The most obvious case of this,  is the magnet motor,  alot of people seem to not believe in them.  (But alot of people do.)
So if your one of the people that dont believe, you are eating the lies, and u are living in the illusion of their grandeur.   (of magnet motors, but they do beat the pants off solar panels.)

But what if it doesnt stop there.

What if we have advanced medical care already, and its not known to us that it even exists,  and if your a little singulatarian and ur to go produce this for yourself, it may come as a shock when you find out its already there,  and all the big ego win gets tossed down the drain.

You thought you were so good...  you thought you were the only one,  but then... welcome to the [[[big box]]], with a big bow on top, now everything you made is just relegated to another form of averageness, and theres nothing really exciting or interesting about it at all.

Just think tho, it rings true to daily day life, the "showoff at the pub" alot of the time, his trick doesnt work, anyway, whatever its about,  if theyve heard about it,  doesnt really come as a suprise to anyone anymore.

But because of all this secrecy, the singularity is always 50 years from now even 50 years from now,  even tho it could have possibly been 300 years AGO.

So theres a great possibility of ppl being impressed by it,  by only you hustling them, like taking advantage of year 1's when ur in year 3.   No challenge, and utter scum of you to take such an easy way out.

A problem... in General Chat

I remember when I first heard of Raelians, that religion started by a formula 1 race car driver, named Rael, that claimed he was abducted by aliens and was shown all their secrets. Rael adopted an Abrahamic context for his religion and used all the stories of the Bible as evidence for aliens. In his descriptions of how the earth was created he mentions that the aliens created the oceans by using atomic bombs to blow out trenches and then fill them with water! I found the story soo amuzing, but then I said, wait a minute, the alien he describes is soo ignorant that it just might be real! You see as civilizations get more technologically sophisticated the dumber the population of such civilizations become. Think about it, if AI can do all the problem solving for us, why should we think at all! It's kind of like our bodies' immune system, we don't think about it just does what it's supposed to do.  Not only that but as civilizations become more sophisticated to the point of employing engineering selection and sustain their existence as a sophisticated civilization for hundreds of thousands of years, they can lose their ability to relate to natural selection.

To add more weight to this kind of argument there was an article in Scientific American that stated our universe is a creation of some advance civilization. Now here's the spooky injection of an Abrahamic suggestion, the author of the article states that reproducing universes need only one advance civilization, effectively one god. But why couldn't more than one Type A civilization exist that builds universes as well?

The article doesn't go into simulated universes but being able to re-create simulated reality is something we know is possible with ever-increasing realism. If a civilization has such an ability and it turns into a lifestyle, as it already has here on earth, then such a being could suffer from virtual reality, reality confusion, similar to dream reality confusion. Where say such a being were to turn up on our shores but it thinks our reality is something it created.

In the end, the author of the Scientific American article is still anthropomorphizing, since he's imagining an impetus to create universes as some investigation prompted by curiosity and the intent to create sophisticated life, a god-created man in his own image kind of idea! Where the success of a technological society is one that can harness gobs of energy. However, that doesn't have to be the case and technological societies that are very efficient need not require immense amount of energy, it might not need energy at all to create its computational universes, as I describe in a post about Time-Crystals.

Humanoid knee design in General Robotics Talk

This is a friend's Master's degree research that he just got published. The full paper should be available for free access in about a week, but in the meantime, he has a summary of it on his blog. https://loonylabs.org/2022/04/27/so-you-want-to-build-a-humanoid-robot/

The design includes a unique biomimetic knee joint that has several properties of the real human knee (four-bar linkage design, large load-bearing contact surface, ability to "lock" in a standing position), as well as some other connections which re-purpose "air muscles" to mimic synovial joints.

the path to agi, and the "motivator" in General Chat

Creatures in life avoid pain, and go for pleasure.

As a robot made of plastic, metal and motors and running on a battery,    pain could just be damage detectors, and the pleasure could be it charging its battery,   and you just leave the rest to an exponential compute.

The problem with that  (Apart from the exponential compute.) is its an unsafe robot.    So if someone works out how to make a quantum computer, they could just rush into this with this simple motivation and see what happens.

Its not known, if the robot will develop a behaviour pattern by guessing where the positive goal is,  and everytime it finds out its not true, it will put it off to somewhere else it doesnt know yet that could possibly have this positive goal in it.    (I call that fantasizing.)   So if the robot does this fantasization then it will always be trying something new to get this goal,   but the problem is what it will do to get it.

So now I'm older,  If I ever work out how to do an exponential compute,  I'm not going to run this,  I'lll do something safer, with more guarding and possibly a harder to make motivation system using symbolic logic to guard it from doing haneous things on the way to gaining MORE BATTERY POWER.

Pleasure and pain is not what motivates animals in real life, and evolution is false.
If you make a robot like this youll see that its an evil creation, and its unnatural just as that, so if u end up being able to make some quantum computer, put a bit more effort in goaling it properly, even if it takes more time to do it,  its worth it,  save alot of harm it will cause.

Amazon dataset for multilingual NLU in General AI Discussion


Imagine that all people around the world could use voice AI systems such as Alexa in their native tongues. One promising approach to realizing this vision is massively multilingual natural-language understanding (MMNLU), a paradigm in which a single machine learning model can parse and understand inputs from many typologically diverse languages. By learning a shared data representation that spans languages, the model can transfer knowledge from languages with abundant training data to those in which training data is scarce.

A long time ago I decided to focus my efforts on natural language understanding. It is only one aspect of intelligence but I figured that our natural languages have evolved to model what we think about. Therefore, if I could write software that could model what we think about, I would have solved a large part of the problem.

Whole new perspective on the robo revolution... in AI Programming

Here's a real project, you can literally download the code that allows one to control your face with a PS4 controller! Yep, now patch this to something like GPT-3 and now you know where I'm going.  :D Here's where AI can just turn us into zombies as they control our faces and voices within our own bodies, effectively making humans puppets. For many, if not most, it will definitely be an improvement.  :2funny:

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.
