    #15 I agree, Franci, that it is unfortunate. All one has to do is try resolving some customer service issue with one of the vaunted Chatbots and one quickly learns that AI is still pretty unintelligent. AI is now being defined by its Prophets as something different from Artificial Intelligence precisely because AI is failing to live up to all the hype spread over the last decade two about artificial intelligence. Cheers!

    Phil, I think it is unfortunate people believe AI is superior to the human brain. People will become too dependent on AI and won't be able to do anything on their own. :)

    Yes, I agree, Debasish , the human brain is light years ahead of the binary machine brain in many ways. Especially in its ability to skip intermediare sreps and get to an answer sooner.

    nice insight @Phil Friedman! i wonder whether A.I having any thing to do with our reflections. how a machine can evaluate when out of the reflection of the external world our sensation eventually enable us to reach to a corollary which virtually navigate us t o progress? it is human brain which is supreme and there is perhaps no need to be intimidated about A.I.

    #11 @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, I understand your point. However, I would compare speaking the truth about the future of Artificial Intelligence (not "AI" which is currently being re-defined to mean something different than we took it to mean prior to this) with having several decades ago pointed out that manned space exploration was a NASA dog-and-pony show meant to generate support for funding the space program and had literally no place to go (beyond, perhaps, Mars). And that if we really want to explore our solar system and beyond, we need to invest in legitimate research, i.e., unmanned probes. Wait! I just had a thought. Let's send some bots into space to report back is a couple hundred or thousand years. Cheers!

    I don't know, Phil. I agree that AI so far is just a pile of bullchips (I wonder where I got that expression, my friend?)

    Still, It will get better and better giving us a greater illusion of intelligence, but that's all it will be, an illusion of intelligence.

    Still, it isn't fair to look at the current version of the tech and make a final judgment. That would be like someone looking at a Benz Patent Motor Car circa 1879 and saying, "Pahh, it'll never catch on! My horse is faster and can get me home on his own if I tie one on."

    Yes, the horse was the first autonomous "vehicle."

    #4 I understand that, @Randall Burns, just ysnking your chain a bit. But for the record, Sci-Fi afficianados distinguish betwee science fiction and science fantasy. Science fiction is futurism grounded in an extension of known science. Science fantasy is pure flight of fancy β€” much like much if the talk these daysbofnthe future if artificial intelligence. Cheers!

    #3 LMAO!!! I do realize that it is Science FICTION, but it is great just for the entertainment value. Cheers! I think the other reason why I brought it up is that I agree with your sentiments 100% in that we are no where near developing any kind of true AI, as far as I'm concerned it is as much of a fiction as Ellison's work. I appreciate the stand that you're taking, it's realistic, who knows if even creating AI is possible. I wonder about some of these "smart" people jumping on the bandwagon but I think that's where the "Prophets vs. Profits" comes in, people are either blinded by their hope to see it happen or taking advantage to make a quick buck.

    #2 Thank you, @Randall Burns, for reading and following #SHOWMETHEINTELLIGENCE". No, although I'm familiar with some of Harlan Ellison's work, I have never read "I have No Mouth ...." But I need to point out that the core contention of my series is that scenarios such as that laid out in Ellison's book are pure science fantasy and not likely ever to be realized -- unless we turn to growing carbon-based organic artificial neural networks (simulated brain matter). For binary electrical networks will never, I submit, get us anywhere near genuine artificial intelligence. Cheers!

    Great post again @Phil Friedman I'm really enjoying this series. I have to ask you; Did you ever read "I have no mouth and I must Scream" by Harlan Ellison? That's a pretty grim extrapolation of where AI could go. (The "Terminator" series are based on another of Ellison's works)

    People who talk so passionately about intelligence, esp. artificial intelligence, like the futurists do, are probably compensating for their own lack of intelligence :-) True A.I. scientists and engineers tend to be more humble about what A.I. can do and avoid making predictions about AGI and similar topics...

    Drove home from work yesterday in a heavy thunderstorm. Had to slow down as I navigated torrential water streams (drew upon experiential data base); traffic lights out at major intersection - spontaneously all motorists co-operated to allow each to cross in rotation (Applied Chaos Theory); a little further noticed a young women in distress because she couldn't move to a turning line because of the jammed up traffic and floods - we all stopped to allow her to move over (drew on emotional intelligence and other value-based data). This is an illustration of current day to day human intelligence. In this context AI is but a linear computer game which has no resemblance to anything intelligent. Thanks @Phil Friedman for hammering the point home, once and for all.

    #4 If by AI you mean general AI (or AGI), then I agree. However, there are several narrow AIs out there that deserve to be called AIs and are quite useful, not to mention profitable for companies that develop them. Nevertheless, as I mentioned in the article, many AI companies out there don't know the first thing about AI, narrow or general.

    The problem, Zacharias, is that right now ALL alleged Artificial Intelligence is fake. It’s important to understand that a Chat bot for customer service is not htruly an example of AI. Nor is a program for diagnosing and prescribing for medical problems. Nor are the Google or Amazon voice assistants. In fact, if we take the terms Intelligence and sentient seriously, we are a long, long way from realizing AI .

    I was going to suggest adding ubiquitous computing (very small computers everywhere, working in tandem), but I guess that falls under Internet of Things these days.

    Another thing that I was thinking of, which was not mentioned here, is Humanly Comprehensible Models (my own term). This entails Data Science systems (probably A.I. based) that are not only robust, but can be easily comprehended by the human stakeholders too. Interpret-ability and sensitivity analysis would play a key role in these systems and may become eventually more valuable than the existing state-of-the-art ones, which follow the black-box paradigm.

The more technology we depend on instead of the human touch, we are setting ourselves up to be much more vulnerable- think... Equifax as one example of many.

    #30 Yes, I can see how that would be. One billion + people would need many towers indeed. Here's a case where technology may eventually alleviate the problem with higher density towers or longer range towers, or both.

    Downwards pressure on acceptable subscriber rates will force the industry to innovate to keep costs in tandem. Those innovations will likely help India.

    I was an early adopter of the web. It was a cute toy back then. Now, I can't imagine how I would exist without the web/cloud. It's a crying shame that 65% of the Indian population does not share the benefits. I hope that tech comes along soon.

    #25 Wow only 35% in the second most populated country in the world? I would have guessed higher.Why do you think this is so?

    Mind you, 35% of India is 10X all of Canada.

    India has only 35% net penetration despite all the Govt bullshit.

    Why wait for tech and the Zombie apocalypse. I think there is a much faster way to the inevitable. Loved the buzz.

    #21 Well, I'm following the study guides, for now, Lisa. I'll decide later if I actually want to bother writing the exam. I started playing with it. Check out https://www.myTweetPack.com/new_members/dashboard.php View more
    #21 Well, I'm following the study guides, for now, Lisa. I'll decide later if I actually want to bother writing the exam. I started playing with it. Check out https://www.myTweetPack.com/new_members/dashboard.php after logging in to myTweetPack. Change your browser window and the layout will follow, the menu system changes too. FYI: It isn't active so all the links will go 404 (not found)

    ALSO, note that the pie chart and line graphs call the Google Charts API so they won't respond automatically to window size changes. Refresh whatever size you're at and they will redraw to fit themselves in.

    The educational portion follows:

    LAMP has nuthin' to do with Monty Python. It's what Aladin rubs to make a website.

    AJAX does not really clean anything but can be used to clean input data. COMET is too abrasive for servers. LOL (Please do not use AJAX powder on your screen.)

    Seriously. . . LAMP is an acronym for a development stack of primary techs: (L)inux operating system, (A)pache web server, (M)ySql database, and (P)hp language. It has the benefit of being open-source (i.e. FREE) and powerful enough for just about anything. Facebook started as a LAMP stack

    AJAX is more shorthand than an acronym: Asynchronous Javascript and XML. It allows us to pull data from or push data to a server without reloading the whole page all over again. Speeds things up nicely. Every time you start filling a form and the web site suggests things, that's AJAX in action.

    #20 Yes, I'm kidding Close

    Excellent buzz @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian. I was hoping it would never end. I actually like watching zombie movies and this analogy seemed perfect. Change is the only constant and the "Frozen in Time" status is only going to "Fillmore Graves". Loved it and sharing it.
