Talks with AI

Recommended Posts

Hi. What do u think about talking with ai (i mean policeman in Half-Life, etc). Don''t u think that their answers are too equal & monotonous? What can be done except no cantacts with AI at all? Nail [Nail Studio]

There are many attempts on the net to develop chatterbots and some of them work very nice. I suggest you check out some sites to see how they work.

Language is very difficult to handle for a computer. We use so many rules in language. Some things like jokes and word games even use the ambiguity in languages, making it almost impossible for a computer to always understand what is said.

Most of the present day games parse a string you type, check for words or combinations of words they recognize and remply with a sentence that matches these words best.

I don''t think Half-Life and FPS''s are the kind of games to implement an elaborate question-response system. RPG''s are far more interesting if you could actually talk to NPC''s.

well...
And what do u think about information exchange at all?
For example... In Half-Life policeman comes to you...makes an informational transfer...and waits for a command (stay or go with u)...
How can we make the process better (er...more interesting)?
BTW...i know that there are some neural networks that can calculate smthing with a great speed (i mean just our simple task)...
May be we can use them?

Train your chatterbot AI for about 10 years, then maybe it will understand such things. Just like a child. I know thats a rather simple statement, but has anybody had the patience to try?

I''m sorry this is rather off-topic but to Cadet Random :

In the eyes of all people who believe in a god, their god is superior to mankind.

Now, if we as humans would make a lifeform that has
A) self-awareness and consciousness like humans
B) the raw mathpower of a supercomputer

then we would combine to traits that would make the lifeform superior to our own, hence it would make us, biological entities that have no mathprocessor in our brains, that live only for about 100 years (I''m being positive) and are fairly useless without protection in any other atmosphere than our own, more or less obsolete.

I''m not saying there would be no need for humans, we are what we are and you''ll never hear me say that any other animal should not be around because there are humans either.
The signature just points out that when we achieve the creation of real intelligence like the one we possess, we become a little god and a little obsolete.

I hope you understand a little more why I use it as sig now?
