Proving Strong AIThe following is a very rough idea of a philosophical argument, and is not a proper philosophical paper (I'd have to clarify everything and it'd end up being 5 pages long)
I stumped my philosophy professor today. We were discussing the Chinese Room Thought Experiment and how it proves that a Strong AI is impossible (a strong AI being a thinking machine). The experiment is based on the idea that someone is sitting in a room and Chinese symbols are handed to him. He uses a rulebook that tells him what characters to write in response to the symbols given to him, and he understands neither the input nor the output. Due to this, anyone standing outside the room would think that the person inside the room understands Chinese, even though he clearly does not.
There are two glaring issues with this argument. The first is very simple - Understanding cannot be defined by philosophe
Abstract Learning and Our Mind I now have experimental evidence for my theory of everyone hating jobs
well see, my two roommates were like "Jobs suck." "Yeah." and I piped in with "Not all jobs suck" and their immediate response was "Yeah right. Name ONE job that doesn't suck." People think that if you get a job doing something, it will suck. This therefore actually makes it LESS likely people will get a job doing something they like because they are under the impression that it will suck
Huh. Makes sense.
On an unrelated note, for the longest time I've found that most geniuses or brilliant people started doing what they're doing at an exceedingly young age
I have two counterexamples, but continue.
I have my own counterexample, there are exceptions; the exceptions are not the point here, the general trend is.
True. You are correct there.
My proposal hinges on the fact that children, when guided to begin learning about a given topic at an
It was a cold winter night, with the forest treetops lit by moonlight. Stars dotted the clear blue sky, and a forest below slept in relative peace. Below the canopy, where broken beams of light caught glimpses of nocturnal creatures, a lizard slid across the ground, its forked tongue tasting the air in anticipation of a juicy meal. A small brown mouse lay sleeping beside a log, unaware of the danger that crept closer with every breath of air.
Without warning, a wild screech filled the air, and the lizard looked up at the canopy just as a tree squirrel landed on top of it. Thwack! The lizard fell into an unconscious heap, the squirrel holding up its stick in triumph. The mouse had leapt up at the loud noise and was crouching under the log, trembling. The squirrel looked curiously at the terrified rodent, and scurried over to the log it was hiding beneath. A friendly nuzzle was all it took to calm the rodent, who licked the squirrel's cheek in appreciation.
