Is self-aware AI possible? Is self-aware AI a gradual change or is it something that simply suddenly occurs? My research paper will focus on the possibly on if self-aware AI is even possible and if there is a stark distinction between weak-AI, AI that is not self-aware, or strong-AI, AI that is self-aware, or if the distinction between weak-AI and strong-AI is a gradual change. An example of the gradual change would be like a human baby going from something that is not rational and possibly not be self-aware to it grow to become a fully grown human adult who is rational and is self-aware. I will look into John Searle and his argument against strong-AI and his Chinese room example and I will also talk about Alan Turing and the Turing Test in favor of the possibly of the self-aware AI.
A Preface for Understanding Artificial Intelligence.
As the coordinator for a think tank which operates online, one of my favorite topics is artificial intelligence. In fact, I do believe in the future that the CEOs of every major corporation will actually be a supercomputer with artificially intelligent software running the central nervous system of the entire corporation from their sales business units to their warehouse and inventory.
The other day, I met an individual at Starbucks, an artist amongst other things. He seemed incredibly good at the art of doodling and turning those sketches into art work – the stuff he showed me was quite good, and he was busy yet creating another piece as we spoke, right there in the Starbucks, perhaps a good place to draw and sketch with just the right ambiance and a little caffeine along with that. Okay so let’s talk, because what he showed me had me thinking that we could program a computer, or artificial intelligent software to do.
Because of the rising number of customers for most firms there has been a corresponding increase in the need to create better services and being for them (customers) when they seek to be provided with a desired service. Because of these, firms are faced with a rising challenge of providing immediate attention and answers to the needs and questions of their customers respectively. These have further lead to replacing most call centers with artificial intelligence.
After retirement, I accidentally became a writer. In my aggressive move to become the most prolific online article writer in the history of humans I did something really stupid, I wrote 25,700 articles online, and took everything in my mind and tried to put it into articles. Well over 30,000 hours later, I look back and wonder if it was all worth it. Nevertheless, I learned something very interesting along the way, something that I don’t think a lot of people know.
A few months back our Think Tank was working through a thought problem, we were trying to consider how best to launch an artificial intelligent software system to run an entire energy grid for a state, nation, or region. Okay so, let’s talk about this.
Is there a way to make our electricity grid self-healing – there just might be, but would this work, would it be safe – free from cyber hackers, or terrorism? All good questions, and perhaps this is why an acquaintance of mine and I had approached the topic. When I first heard of such a scheme of using AI or artificial intelligence to handle such tasks, I thought to myself; sure this is a decent line of inquiry and worthy research.
How does anyone know that their newest friends, who they’ve never met are actually even the people they represent, how does one know that? Okay so, I dare to ask the question of some X’er with 750 friends listed on their Facebook page who they have never actually met, why you ask, well, let’s talk about this shall we?
