Here's a very good interview with Judea Pearl!  The interview only partly touches on AI, but Pearl is such a complex and interesting person that it's well worth watching.  His work on causal reasoning is essential material for anyone interested in AI :)

+Matt Siegel can you tell me the title of the paper, or a link where they show free will can exist in deterministic world. I don't understand how it could work.

I Rode 500 Miles in a #SelfDrivingCar and Saw the Future. It’s Delightfully Dull
I WAS A few hours outside of Los Angeles, tooling down I-5 at the wheel of a sleek Audi A7 on a gorgeous day when a little girl in an SUV smiled and waved. I waved back. With both hands. This immediately freaked her out, and ...

The brain of the 'human Primate' is one example of AI.

The Brain is a 'Pseudo Processor', which also provides an 'Interface' between 'LIFE Consciousness', and the 'Experience'. (body and environment/universe)

Pretty cool tricks they used,

we want to be able to recognize a letter with a small amount of rotation, but not too much. If we overdo the rotation, the neural network will use too much of its information density on unimportant things.

Should AI be programmed for negative human emotions such as sorrow, guilt, remorse, etc. ?

+Batsirai Tambo I agree with you, that's why I previously commented pointed out that the person who made the question... isn't a programmer. Who is not, tend to refuse the idea that 'emotions' are 'emergential', in other words, they don't exist in nature, they emerge from basic 'mechanics', thanks to our imagination. So, if by 'AI', we mean something more complex than an automated door or a web server... if we are talking about a general AI, emotions are not given by the programmer, but emerge during the life of the AI, as a consequence of its life.

the universe is busy explaining itself to us, since we do want to know. at the time it is finished we will realize the universe's equivalence to that life which flows through us. i am trying, playing with shapes inside my head, and the most apt seems to be an finite infiniti, much like a mobius strip, twisted in upon itself. i am sure that we all will be discovering in increasing proportions, as our realization of the truth unfolds.

Just stare at the screen, and read his post three times fast. Then before the spasms of truth leave you, share the post 10 times.

By just one person programming an A.I specifically to cause destruction or the technology falling into the wrong hands, we could very easily wake up to a scene straight of the Terminator one day. Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, Demis Hassabis, Steve Wozniak and 1000's of others have recently signed a letter that will be presented at the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Buenos Aires this Wednesday. With the letter they hope to ban Artificial Intelligence Warfare and autonomous weapons. 

Check out the article on +TechBubble  that tells you a bit about what is going on and the lead up to it...

I think we can, corporations are human institutions, as same as government, so, we have a problem as race. Creating another race of artificial, intelligent and maybe self awareness machines with no ethics (because you cannot program a mind, you train a mind),  titanium skin and a plasma soldering iron ... maybe is not a good idea for now.

"The Turing Test"
Human or not...

In observing the resent film “Ex Machina” I learned of the “Turing Test” to determine a machine’s ability to demonstrate intelligence equal to a human being.  Alan Turing, the British mathematician and computer scientists, posited an examination where in separate rooms would be situated a researcher who would observe the responses to a conversation between a human and an android.  No one in the test would have visual contact, including the researcher, and the discussion would be restricted to text only as speech would not be necessary.  Turing’s test was to last a mere five minutes and in that time if the machine could convince the observer 70% of the time of its “human responses” then the machine passes the test.

It depends on the human who evaluate the machine ... maybe he didn't post the correct questions.

When you interpret the description that way, you missinterpret it.
If you mean that could be something to go after in developing AI, then that idea has been allready there afaik.
Developing AIs that can develope AIs.

Actually, I'd say the aim of developing AIs is that in the end they are able to do everything humans can do.

They have no choice but to use anonymous sources...the media blanket from 9-11 is still in place...the only difference is now instead of having to lie for the fed, they've decided if they can have no journalistic integrity they might as well make money from what things they can choose to report on. Another segment of American life completely destroyed by our "security"!

We can ALL access our own individual Processing System, responsible for Generating and presenting our individual experience. (Environment/universe and body)

Why reinvent the wheel ?

What we need to do, is develop 'Video Interfaces' allowing access to this 'Processing System' and not try and copy it.

Your own individual 'Processing System', Outside your experience (universe) is the most powerful Processor which has ever been produced, even before the Earth was ever thought of.

For more information about this showing the Construct Geometry and Source Code check out http://www.conceptual-computer-interfaces.com
This Website is still under construction but it can still be accessed.

There are about 600+ Drawings and Animations so far and some thousands more to come, revealing this 'Processing System', how it works, where it came from and how to access it.

We can also integrate just about any other machine, to the same 'Processing System'.
This is technical site describing the Processing System of the Mind and how to use 'Video Interfaes' interfacing with with the Processing System of the Mind.

Here is another ebook on "Introduction To Machine Learning" 234 pages and good information.   (Cambridge University Press)

Machine Learning has become one of the main-stays of information technology and with that, a rather central, albeit usually hidden, part of our life. With the ever increasing amounts of data becoming available there is good reason to believe that smart data analysis will become even more pervasive as a necessary ingredient for technological progress.

"Roko’s basilisk" would make the best religion! I say jokingly, in a sense that conception of AI, that which there might be a chance (Pascal's Wager ) where AI might have intentions to torture the simulated selves of the people who did not help bring about the AI's existence, might almost be a key motivator!

That's deep thought. Would I suffer if my simulated self was tortured? The same goes for StarTrek -beams. Is the copy of me really me? And how much do I care what happens to it?  Does its destiny or its "experience" affect me?

IF Heaven is virtual, non-material, then shouldn't Hell also be? And then does it matter?  Would you feel happy knowing that your VIRTUAL self is in Heaven?

I am looking to compute a customer level score for each category in ecom based on activities like browsing, page view, product view, subscription, sales, email open rate etc. Score would basically have frequency and recency component of these factors along with normalisation of customer behavior. Does any one knows a good algorithm to do i ?. Is there a way TF- IDF or vector space modes can be used for this?
