Re: Artificial-Life@ new index
Although I found the idea of that an intelligent machine will be too
smart to talk to us provocative, I'll like to disagree.
Intelligence is measured in many ways, including the ability to
understand and interact with their environment. And that will be us..
About what would an intelligent machine talk about with us?
Just think about what trouble will have another intelligent bean to
grasp the complexities of our existence.
Explaining life, dead, love, laugh, hate, anger, religion, war, fear and
so many other things that may be unique to us humans.
After all any other form of intelligence will not perceive what we call
reality from the same view as we do.
