What if by some analogy with AlphaZero (and AlphaGo) are try to find some patterns in is why some music more more likely for human as another - and based on this and/or with "1 billion people" evaluating  new music and/or with data from Elon Musk Neuralink (listen music and point which more likely) (or even electrodes sewn into the brain (it is clear that a small number of people) ) - and so are try to find and deep learn the best music in the World ?

I remember what's happend with me before I got into this body in childhood and I remeber some heaven music's in astral worlds - and based on this know that the limit of musical pleasure is such that you can’t even imagine ..

and it would be incredibly cool to reach it on Earth, technically there is no problem reproducing audio - the only question is to find the "desired byte sequence" (there are obviously not one) in mp3 / wav ..

your thoughts, how real is this with AI?  :read:

Quantum computers solve intractable problems, via an exponential amount of parallel power.  They aren't just parallel,  they are uber parallel.   If you took a gpu we have nowadays, got the log of its bus, it would be about ~85 qbits worth.   Quantum could increase this to over 4000.   That's why I know no-ones got one, and anyone that says they do is a lier,  because the world we live in would be fundamentally different, in the form of mans self empowerment. (as apposed to nature, which was always there.)

Also,  I don't think RSA encryption would exist anymore either - but it still seems to be there.

So...   these "physical phenomena" don't seem to be there to even take advantage of, or they would have already - unless...  something funny Is going on.

How is a qbit having a probability of being a 1 or 0 supposed to help,  I think it helps more by just being both.
What could you possibly get out of it?

You're right, that's what superposition is: the ability to be in both states at the same time. Without superposition, quantum computers would be pointless and would just be the same as classical computers. Those probabilities alpha and beta just describe how much of each state is present simultaneously during the period of superposition. It is superposition that allows quantum computers to do parallel processing. Quantum computers are basically just parallel processing computers, except that instead of having multiple man-made processors they use the natural phenomenon of superposition via ultra simple qubits, which saves on a lot hardware: no need to manufacture copies of the same intricate piece of a CPU when a simple niobium loop can do the same thing as an entire processor.

That also explains part of why I personally don't believe quantum computers are going to produce AGI, at least not in the way we think of AGI: at best quantum computers are just parallel processing computers, which we've had for decades and can only speed up the algorithms we program, not produce anything fundamentally new. At best I believe quantum computers could make impressive inroads on computationally intensive tasks, like in pattern recognition, associative memory, and search speed, which are related to intelligence but are not the essence of intelligence itself.

General Chatbots and Software / Re: chatbot tester for METAQUID

If that case, then HANAH, which happens to be a palindrome, is at about the level of  homogeneous chatbots, were when first brought online.  In the early stages, is a solid foundation, is all that should be expected for new chatbots.   At the very least, that has been accomplished.

Now,  there is room to grow.  That is usually just a matter of  training.  Clues may be found by focusing on responses, less connected, to the human stimulus.  Even is that is used to guide the training of an AGI.

The interface design and theme is attractive, and engaging.  Hanah is good entertainment.  Thank you for publishing this.

Anyone think this can be used to avoid being hit by lightspeed gamma ray radiation in a space utopia? Put out quantum devices around your utopia, and if one gets hit, change the one back at home and say MOVE UP. We miss the beam. Day saved.

I don't believe that can work because: (1) You won't know which states those quantum detectors have, so you can't program conditions to check, or even program an action to happen if a change of state occurs; (2) It's impossible to transmit information faster than light, just as it's impossible to transfer mass faster than light--that's the real drawback of using quantum teleportation to try to create physical teleportation. (I'm ignoring wormholes and other extremely exotic possibilities, some possibilities that some insiders claim already are being used in secret.)

? isn't a qbit already a qtrit anyway?
QBIT
1  =  0
2  = 1
3  = both

Eh, that's an ugly and inaccurate way to think about qubits because at all times there exists a probability for each of the qubit's states 0 or 1, so at all times there is already the following expression for the overall ("system") state that already takes any possible mixture into consideration:

alpha * |0> +
beta * |1>

alpha = the probability of that qubit being in state 0
beta = the probability of that qubit being in state 1
Both alpha and beta are numbers anywhere between or including 0 and 1, though I believe constrained in certain mathematical ways. I don't believe alpha and beta can both equal 1 at the same time, for example, but I don't understand the details thoroughly enough to know for sure. (See the topic of Bloch spheres, for example, then please explain it to us all in a simple way!)

At any rate, what you were calling state 3 is what's called a "mixed state" or "superposition" and was already described by the math expression I showed above, so there is no need to list such a state 3.

So a qtrit is like *6* states->

No, just 3 states, due to what I explained above, although with an infinite number of possible mixed states due to all the choices for alpha and beta.

1 qubit has 2^1 = 2 possible states: 0, 1
1 qutrit has 3^1 = 3 possible states: 0, 1, 2

In general, with N digits you get:

N qubits have 2^N possible states
N qutrits have 3^N possible states

It's with multiple digits that quantum computers really start to excel over classical computers, since then the representational power goes up exponentially. One digit is fairly useless, even if it's a qubit or qutrit, but even with two qubits you can start to do some things you couldn't do before on a classical computer that had two classical bits (https://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/63412/how-are-qubits-better-than-classical-bit-if-they-collapse-to-a-classical-state-a). Since we're dealing with exponential increase in the above expressions, a small change in base (like from 2^N to 3^N) can quickly make a huge difference. You can plot several points on a graph of each of those two functions to prove that to yourself.

There exist advantages of using higher bases even in classical computers. For example, a ternary computer (base 3) is easier to build and needs fewer digits to represent numbers than does a binary computer (base 2):
