You said your AI has reached AI complete yet you are programming more things into it?
Yes, I am smoothing out the basic True AI functionality.
> And looking at the above, its “NOT” very intelligent is it?
The transcript above looks like it came from the
http://www.scn.org/~mentifex/AIMind.html Tutorial AI
which currently lags behind the MindForth AI.
“ROBOTS REPAIR WHAT DO I REPAIR”
two things are going wrong. The direct object “satellites”
is not activated highly enough, so the AI switches to the
WhatAuxSVerb module that asks a question with a specific
verb in the verb-slot. The other thing going wrong is that
the subject “robots” has gone astray and “I” took over.

Nice photo. In 2008, January, the Mentifex AI
was “AI-Complete” in that it was finally able to
think with “spreading activation”, but the thinking
had a tendency to derail into erroneous assertions.
Now on 9 October 2011 the AI is “AI-Complete”
with a more solid ability to think without the
derailments of a train of thought. Meanwhile I
am going through the free AI source code and
clearing out any element that has a disruptive or
corruptive influence on the new thought process.

Sounds good to me.

MindForth and the JSAI have internally “predefined boundaries”
in the form of the inherent English grammar rules, but these AI
Minds are free to absorb tens of thousands of “triples” or
facts in the SPO (Subject - Predicate - Object) format.

The text that the AI Mind understands is grounded in
the knowledge that the text conveys. Of course, as in the
module, roboticists are invited to ground the AI in
sensory experience beyond the text-boundaries.

is about the Science Museums that might host the AI Minds,
not just university AI labs. And the AI does not just “regurgitate”
the concepts pre-coded into it. By asking questions, the AI
builds up a knowledge base fror free-ranging discussion.

Once the disruptive, corruptive elements have been
cleared out from the free AI source code, and the MindForth
the goal of “self-referential thought” will be achieved.

The AI is like the mind of a baby, but not “tabula rasa”.
> There are many questions you should ask yourself.
> When is your AI (without the “G”) going to be scaled up,
Thought is thought and does not need to “be scaled up”.
> when is it going to carry out an intelligent, cohesant conversation?
When I have removed the elements that were disruptive.
> when is it going to do anything intelligent at all?
You and the other users will be the judge of its intelligence.
