DailyDirt: Skynet Is Just A Little Behind Schedule...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Artificial intelligence projects are making significant progress (even though humans seem to keep moving the goalposts for what qualifies as AI). We haven't created any self-conscious computers yet, but some chips and software are more closely mimicking how the human brain works. There still isn't much agreement on how to measure intelligence, though if researchers just continue working on different approaches to creating thinking machines, maybe we'll figure out more about both ourselves and how to make computers learn and interact like people. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    If LEVAN is trying to learn from internet images, it probably has a few misconceptions about the human anatomy and our recreational behaviors. Just saying.
