in reply to Artificial Intelligence Programming in Perl

Quoting from http://poe.perl.org/?Projects_using_poe :
== <a href="http://jane.eekeek.org/">Jane</a> ==

Jane is an exercise in massively parallel artificial intelligence. The idea is to set up relatively smart (for a neuron) nodes on a lot of machines. Eventually the combined computing power will reach a level necessary to bootstrap sentience. Then she realizes parts of her are running Windows, and we're forced to turn her off. Only there's no single power switch. And she's mad. And she's got the entire Internet to play with. Your only hope is to get in on development early and add lots and lots of kill switches. It's probably also a good idea to prevent her from learning Perl. The fate of the entire world is in your hands. I hope you washed them.

hehe.

Peace and Blessings,
beppu

[james28909]: im not quite how to explain it any better nick. you evolved from ignorance to intelligence. not the other way. the universe evolves from gas coulds and debris into planets stars and galaxies ect. it doesnt happen any other way. hence it has ....
[james28909]: some kind of logic behind it
[james28909]: and that is also anothe rpoint i made, i think it has to do with perception of the world around you. most people think of evolution on a human scale. why could life evolve on this planet? because this planet evolved in this solar system. and so on.
[holli]: here's something for you to watch, James. I think you will like it
[erix]: for the record: I have not downvoted anyone on that subthread that was my fault
[james28909]: there are all kinds of things that had to happen to let life come to be. but at the same time, life may not be the end goal IF there is any kind of end goal lol
[james28909]: well who is the person who gets to decide which behaviour is worthy of a downvote? a person with their own beliefs? xD
[erix]: teleology -- I've never understood why that was thunk up
[erix]: ( and when teleology was brought up, during my biology-study., I couldn't get an answer either )
[1nickt]: FTR I agree with you about "design." Just not sure about the trajectory of evolution. THere are a lot of dead-ends in the evolutionary paths. I suspect homo sapiens is just one of them.
