Artificial intelligence has a broad range of ways in which it can be applied — from chatbots to predictive analytics, from recognition systems to autonomous vehicles, and many other patterns. However, there is also the big overarching goal of AI: to make a machine intelligent enough that it can handle any general cognitive task in any setting, just like our human brains. The general AI ecosystem classifies these AI efforts into two major buckets: weak (narrow) AI that is focused on one particular problem…

Eliza chatbot ELIZA CHATBOT Language and conversation is part of what it is to be human. A large part of human brain function is devoted to processing, creating and understanding communication in both verbal and nonverbal forms. It’s no surprise then that we find it easier to communicate through natural language rather than typing, swing, and clicking. However, the natural language of humans is not the language of computers. Artificial intelligence is helping bridge the gap between humans and machines…

The Church-Turing limit restricts all current computation, including quantum computers, to rational number computation. This is because quantum computer designs (still not scalable even with high parallelism), are still Turing machines, which are limited by Turing machine constraints. This limits any scalable quantum computer’s ability to solve problems because their Turing machine restricted rational number computations are a tiny fraction of all real numbers, akin to our small solar system when compared…

No one debates the meaning of the word 'strength,' or belittles the idea that machines can be stronger than humans, or even tries to re-define mechanical strength to mean some mysterious physico-spiritual capability that is unique to humans. The debate around…

By Ron Schmelzer  |  June 21, 2018 Columnist Ron Schmelzer is Senior Analyst and Founder at Cognilytica The recent demonstration of Google Duplex by CEO Sundar Pichai has grabbed the world's attention. The demo shows a pre-recorded, and supposedly realtime, interaction between an experimental Google voice assistant, called Google Duplex, interacting with a receptionist at a hair salon and having a back-and-forth conversation to book an appointment. Other demos linked on the Google Duplex blog page…

By Ganesh Padmanabhan  |  October 8, 2017  |  Source: LinkedIn I finally watched the movie Ex Machina this weekend (disclosure: I’m not a movie buff, and am always decades behind on movies!). It was a pretty impressive plot, would have liked the screenplay to be a little better. But what stood out for me was the application of the Turing Test to break the frontier – not just testing for human actions, but for human consciousness. I’ll be suspicious of pretty cyborgs from now on. That said, I was trying…
