Time For Some Real AI

from the CYC,-not-HAL dept

Of course this has to come out in the year 2001. The same year that HAL was supposed to go crazy. The same year that the movie AI is coming out. Programmers at Cycorp are finally getting ready to release some of their seventeen year project in AI. The story behind Cyc is pretty interesting. I’d definitely want to see it in action before I believed a bunch of the claims, though. They did say that they made sure that Cyc knows that killing is much worse than lying. Update: Of course, here’s another article saying that artificial intelligence is a long way off. They’re looking more at robotic AI, though.
