Another BC Special…Part III

Okay, folks, thanks for all the comments and the interest in these things. The problem is that these matters are really very complicated. The course I used to teach was for students at the fourth-year level and grads, and presupposed a familiarity with a lot of theory. There is a vast literature on... Sign in to see full entry.

Another BC Special…Part II

Yesterday, during a long hike in the woods with my Bennie, I did a lot of thinking. I was thinking about it all, and drawing on a wide variety of things I know and that should be talked about ( must be talked about!) when you want to explain why and how we are going down the drain of history,...

Another BC Special…Part I

The other day I posted a piece entitled ‘Allowing the waters to rise…’. There were four comments, which is more than I usually get when writing on a theme that seems to bore just about everyone – which is part of the problem, of course… It’s another piece about the Islamic tsunami… Among the...

A BC Special…Part VIII

Well, I think this topic is just about exhausted, or maybe I am, LOL…I haven’t been around much these last few days – for reasons I won’t bore you with. For me it’s partly that I don’t really know enough about this, and I’m never really comfortable of talking about things I don’t know well. I do... Sign in to see full entry.

A BC Special…Part VII

This seems to go on and on, almost by necessity, LOL. First I have to go back quickly to one of BC’s comments. She writes: “Machines cannot think for themselves. They can only think in a series of programmable if/then statements. They will never be able to think in subjective terms (if not already... Sign in to see full entry.

A BC Special…Part VI

As promised, I shall continue to answer the various interesting comments I received to my post on AI, initially prompted by BC. But first I need to clarify my position on this whole topic. It’s a position I’ve held for quite a while, one that is grounded in reading a variety of authors (I say... Sign in to see full entry.

A BC Special…Part V

This is turning into a far lengthier series than I had envisioned, largely due to interesting readers’ comments. (It’s remarkable that my far more important topic, the near-inexorable progress of the Islamic disease, rarely if ever receives similar attention, LOL.) Today I shall address several...

A BC Special…Part IV

Since this series began with a quote (sort of) from our BC, it might as well continue as a result of interesting comments from other readers. First there’s Pat, who writes in part: “I think automation / robotics as such has already changed the workplace and put factory workers - and now even... Sign in to see full entry.

A BC Special…Part III

After being sidetracked by my investigation of the AI effect on Japan ’s ancient shogi tradition, let me return to the reason Elon Musk issued yet another warning. And today it’ll be short – I promise… At first glance there wasn’t anything new in what Musk had to say: Computers again won against... Sign in to see full entry.

A BC Special…Part II

As I mentioned in Part I, I got sidetracked… While writing about Elon Musk’s dire warnings about AI, occasioned by an AI victory over humans in yet another game (about which more later, since there is an important aspect to it), I was wondering whether computers had managed to beat humans at shogi,...
