This human organization's purpose would be to develop the rules that
are needed to deal with the world in an intelligent fashion. The front
would be an Asimo robot. Entities at the back end would dictate its
actions and movements in very small bits.
For example one
would be to tell it to grasp particular object using
specifications supplied by another entity, who would receive the
command to get a certain item's grasping requirements from yet
entity.The "find how to grasp" entity would in turn receive instructions
from a "what to grasp" entity.
Each entity would be a program
made as dull or as smart as required. Every time that entity were
to perform its function or required input a human would step in and
supply the appropriate output, making a note of the missing bit of
information. or process.
The end goal would be to create
for every motivation and action the human brain can process. Humans
would have to serve as some of them, programs could serve as many
them. Over time a more complete map could thus be made and
could gradually be taken out of the loop until finally every bit of the
artificial brain would be computerized.
Finally the massive
spaghettified program could be optimized first by minimizing the
of duplicate entities and then by shortening command pathways. I give
you: Artificial Intelligence!
||I thought that was the way the ubiquitous 'they' are doing it?
||I agree with [Skewed]; this is basically how "expert systems" are developed. But a true AI needs more capabilities than that, such as Free Will and opinions and various (not necessarily all) social skills.
||I'm still guessing it would just be quicker to wait for intelligent alien robots to turn and just sneak a few x-rays of their pathways....AI is always just around the corner.
||I bet some sort of Cantor diagonalization could break this.
||If you take away the aspiration to completeness, though, it's quite similar to the way some large organisations actually work. Think of a distributed cybernetic organism with consultants as gut fauna.
||Why not just go ask the borg? Simples.
||This is an Artificial annotation.
