Yet Another AI Project

from the keep-trying dept

Wired has an article about yet another AI project. This one, like many others, is based on starting out with a child-like computer brain and teaching it over time, and hoping that an intelligent adult-like computer brain comes out in the end. The computer in this case is called HAL, named after HAL from 2001. I’m guessing these people never saw how 2001 ended? Seems like the wrong name to chose. Anyway, I’m still wondering how well a computer can learn just by people telling it stuff. I think children learn a lot from interacting socially with other children – and that’s something that these computer brains don’t have the chance to do.
