Re: The Thread To Remind Me We're Living In The Future

Wait, don't you think we could get human level intelligence from a computer in less than 10 years? I'm a bit confused by this question. Clearly, we have super-human AIs in Chess, Go, and Poker. Really depends on what you define as intelligence. I'd say we have super-human well-defined problem solve...

Re: Chess!

Personally, I'm not the greatest chess player, however when I get the chance to play I almost always open with Queen's Gambit because it's the most fun for me.

Re: The Thread To Remind Me We're Living In The Future

Seems like you are talking mainly about recognising plans/structures/plans which is not what I thought of when "thinking 30 moves ahead" was mentioned. I thought the common misconception that GMs have superhuman calculation abilities was being referred to which is a bit of a myth, they are...

Re: The Thread To Remind Me We're Living In The Future

The best Chess players can think 30 ply ahead, while the AI can do 20 ply perfectly - literally comparing every possible path. Uhm, only if they are following a single branch of the computation tree without any alternate moves at any point. Psychological experiments have shown this to be the case s...

Exactly, and I bet this would correlate well with their religion, but I'd hope we live in a day and age where most of us accept that we are, after all, animals! :mrgreen:

Re: Why do humans see themselves as different from animals?
