Also Steven Spielberg film of the same name. Actually a very good film, provided that at the point when the text "2000 years later" appears on the screen one walks out of the cinema.
Anyone here mucked about with AI? I figure that, with far far TooManyCompScis posting on the toothywiki, there's gotta be a few. If so, I'd be interested to know more, as I've been trying (and mostly failing) to write reasonably intelligent chatbots. I keep finding AI sites with weird diagrams and no comprehensible guides to this sorta thing. My aim is to write a learning chatbot of some sort, then I can log it on to 50 IRC chatrooms at once and see how long it takes to learn english :P
Oh, I missed this question. Yes, I did my PartTwo? project on (a tiny fragment of) AI. It explored a corner of the world and showed that "nope, that naive technique doesn't work there" Not the worlds most earth shattering advance. I think we're going to have to wait for the neurosurgeons to catch up and then just BruteForce? the problem. There'll be a lot of very interesting results as to how the mind really works, but we'll probably find it easier to just copy existing minds than to create from scratch for quite a while. There are a lot of chatbots in [Chatterbox competition] that may be useful to you, but they are mostly even less intelligent than eliza. --Vitenka
MaintainMe: do we want both pages here (maybe), or should we move content and links from one of them to the other?
Sadly, we probably want the film page at this name. --Vitenka
