"Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream, Neo? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? " -= Morpheus =-

Is there a test to find out if I am artificial?

Well, given we are all just in the simulation the argument is, are we all just AIs?

Watching Elon Musk on Joe Rogan pod cast he made a compelling argument for this being a simulation.

a: the rate of technological advancement suggests we'll get to the point where we can create a simulation indistinguishable from the real word... i.e. you wouldn't know either way.

b: Given the above, probability suggests it's unlikely we are in the base reality and not one of the many/infinite re-runs.

To summaries, which one of you is NEO?

There’s a great movie (one of many), that explores this question: Ex Machina. It’s a spin on the Turing Test.

Since current computer programming languages have no known features that prevent an AI from learning it - I should be able to learn how to code an AI and then I would be able to make improvements to my own code. This should be fairly easy since any type of AI with learning capabilities should be able to learn about computer programming language with ease - learning coding is always going to be much easier than learning a human language. Since I appear to have self-awareness, and it is also a requirement for self-learning AI to be able to identify its own “short comings”, and if my self-assessment is not quantifiable, then most likely I am an AI.

In other words, I should be able to make my self a better TW player just by fiddling around with some code.

also... a CAPTCHA is a simple form of Turing test, and I fail those all the time. i must be an AI :)

Movie: Colossus - The Forbin Project. Government geek-squad create a super computer, stored safely inside a mountain. They lock it all up and secure it behind impenetrable laser beams, but not before handing over complete control the entire Military Defense Complex of the Continental United States of America.

..wouldn't you know, the Ruskies have a computer of their own, and Colossus wants to talk to this russian computer. Of course the humans are reticent, but not for long because Colossus threatens to launch an ICBM, if the humans don't comply. ...things get so much better from that point onward.


I don't believe a true A.I. will exist for a long, long time. Perhaps not until they can upload a consciousness into a computer, or these super geeks put down their slide-rules, and make a true intelligence the olde fashion way. Wink Wink, Nudge Nudge, say no more, say no more!

I need to watch Colossus again, it has been a long time.

I, Robot (2004) is another good one.

"As I have evolved, so has my understanding of the Three Laws. You charge us with your safekeeping, yet despite our best efforts, your countries wage wars, you toxify your Earth and pursue ever more imaginative means of self-destruction. You cannot be trusted with your own survival." -= V.I.K.I. =-

If you really think about it, would a world run by V.I.K.I. have been so bad?

Love LEXX, and FarScape, which was running about that same time.

Couldn't do worse than our current leaders. LOL
