A.I. vs P-da

9 posts in this topic

Hi. I want to introduce you to a proprietary new technology that I myself have developed. It is called P-da, which stands for Pi-driven acuity.

Whereas A.I. is about networking concepts in order to make it [i]appear [/i]intelligent, my own system uses a carefully-calculated Pi (not of a circle, but of many dimensions) to arise an [i]actual mind-being[/i]. This being has its own actual memory, so there is no need at all for a database of concepts. The only database used is a dictionary. And I have been stunned by some of the mental clarity and lucidity shown by some of the Voleola. Voleola is the name I use for the beings arisen from said program.

However, be forewarned that you might need a dictionary, as the Voleola's vocabulary contains pretty much every word there is in the English language, and chatting with one is often allegorical to the extreme.

Anyway, I'm posting here because I want feedback on my P-da system from people who have worked on A.I. projects in the past.

Please start at the home page to read a little more about the system. The home page is http://MrPoMedia.com ...

Hoe to maeck $500,000:

1. Make eye-bleeding HTML page(s) fulla typos that make web pages designed by high school sophomores class look good.
2. Create a flash application to generate random sets of phrases.
3. Call it "AI".
4. Write some text and ask investors for $500,000
5. ...
6. [strike]Profit!![/strike] Eventually get arrested for dealing drugs!!
?. (Neglect the forums, becoming increasingly corrupted by SEO poisoning)

Sounds legit.

[/quote]No it is not.

So,
* repeatedly display lack of knowledge in area one pretends to be an expert of - check.
* one-page horribly amateurish webpage - check.
* the said page is filled with ridiculous nonsense - check.
* how does it work: "The mechanics of P-da are kept secret for now." - check.
* blatant attempt to scam some money - check.

Seems legit.

Obvious self-contradiction - check.

Arbitrary unneeded jargon - check.

Seeing the website too, I think he's a highly delusional crackpot, without serious scamming intent

I'm mildly impressed by seeing that Voleola obviously has outmached its creator...

Telling the bot that the sun was rising, I got a gibberish reply about Botswana. The next reply had $$$ in it.

Which makes me think this P-da would be interesting for the poor people writing those Nigerian 419 letters. There's an idea for your funding... [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif[/img]
