Ai is a branch of computer science concerned with teaching computers to think. It has had some success in areas like static and moving image recognition but less so in for example playing Chess. It has taken over 40 years to create computer Chess players able to beat Chess Grandmasters, but that's down to...

What is a Chat Bot? Wed, 31 Oct 2012 12:11:11 +0000 RapidDream RapidDream
Some chat bots may appear to be intelligently interpreting human input and providing responses. However, most chatterbots simply scan for keywords and use an automatic reply that is stored within its database

The classic early chatterbots are ELIZA and PARRY. More recent programs are Racter, ALI, A.L.I.C.E., ELLA, and Jabberwacky.]]>

The neural net is composed of nodes named binary decision units (BDNs). Each BDN has a number of inputs and a rule to calculate its activity. If the sum of the inputs is above a certain...

What is the Minority Game? Tue, 19 Feb 2008 21:52:41 +0000 gegi gegi At each piece of play, each player have to secretly choice one from two alternatives (e. g. "to buy" or "to sell"). A counting of total choices is done: the winners are the players who are up on the minority side. And so the game is continued. Ties are imposible as the total number of players is odd. A player does not know anything about the others but he must outguess what everyone else is guessing.

Fuzzy logic and Chaos Theory Sat, 04 Nov 2006 10:34:33 +0000 TechOut TechOut
I've herd that some forecasters use Fuzzy logic and chaos theory, that all sounds pretty neat. But what exactly is it?

As far as I understand, with fuzzy logic there are certain degrees of truth, and chaos theory shows that certain patterns cant be mathematically represented (like one of Jupiter’s moons rotational patterns?)

(Maybe it wasn’t Jupiter’s moon, but I remember reading somewhere a particular moon has 'chaotic'...

The machine its self can never have an understanding of symbols that it manipulates.

Searle imagined himself in a room; on one side of the room there is a hatch through which questions are passed written in Chinese. Searle’s job is to answer these questions in Chinese and pass the answers back through the hatch.

The problem is Searle doesn’t...

what is an agent? Mon, 14 Aug 2006 19:14:51 +0000 RapidDream RapidDream
Virtual agents: The majority of research is carried out on virtual / software agents in a virtual environment

Physical agents: such as robots are devices that interact with an environment

There isn’t always a clear distinction between physical and virtual agents as researchers often upload their agent programs in to physical devices / robots]]>
