Do we do meets around here?

Who's around London-shire in the next few months? How's about an evening in some fine English establishment?

Think about it. No mods just the metropolitan police to arrest us for the flimsiest of reasons (like they nearly did to me when they caught me with an airband receiver at the gate). Now that's the way to debate!

EDIT: I said nothing. I totally misread the OP. Ignore me.

I'm going to bed. Obviously I'm too tired!

I'd be in, but how would you be able to tell I'm not just a replicant?

Is this testing whether I'm a replicant or an Omnian, Mr. LookingSkyward?

Someone facetiously, I know humans can't be AIs because I've dealt with too many who fail the Turing Test.

Is it just me, or when we actually have to deal with REAL artificial intelligence, the word "AI" will soon become somewhat racist? (Or whatever you would call it).

After all, if they're truly intelligent, the intelligence isn't ARTIFICIAL. It's real intelligence. ANd the means to make it aren't necessarily any more artificial than the flesh-sponge in your head.

Why should the AI's get a break? Everyone else has to put up with small minded fools.

:D

Because if those silly Africans* get a break, so should AIs. ;)


*This was a joke.

I met up with one of the clan a couple weeks ago for breakfast - very enjoyable 4-1/2 hour conversations ensued!

Up with the British and good luck with any hook-ups you might accomplish on that side of the pond!

Ok so that's possibly one?

Come on down to Texas, and we'll have ourselves a party! Yee-haw!

Easier said than done. You'd think that in an organisation where half the people reporting directly to the same team leader as people work in Houston, it would not be too difficult to get a trip over there, preferably involving Continental's new Business First product they were advertising at work a few months ago. But these are stingy times.

Actually you are all just part of my dream.

Prove that I'm wrong. :)

Ummm... TheHalcyionYear, if you're dreaming me, you have serious issues. Get help now!

I propose a politically correct term. Since artificial intelligence will likely not be created without a certain random element to it, I dub it Accidental Intelligence from now on.

Excellent!

This term applies very well to humans also ;)

I kind of prefer SI: Synthetic Intelligence.
