Re: intelligence

A rabbit or a spider may seem conscious but how can we know? A computer my seem conscious but how can we know particularly if it is driven by processing rather than senses? Is conscious to numbers, the same as conscious to appearances?

Re: intelligence

I think that artificial intelligence is a substitute for intelligence. That's it.

It doesn't modify intelligence. It replaces intelligence.

If you can use my position to discuss value, do so but I am not there yet.

Re: intelligence

Modify means to make changes to (something), typically so as to improve it or to make it less extreme. Replace means to provide or find a substitute for (something that is broken, old, or inoperative). Computers can modify how people do their work but don't replace them. AI can replace them.

Re: intelligence

If the substitute is being designed to replace (be a sustitute for) people like me, that is not an imagainary threat. But my posts don't address that. They simply attempt to improve how people talk about computers.

Re: intelligence

Is intelligence judgment, reason, reasoning, understanding, comprehension, acumen, wit, sense and insight or is intelligence the results that mimic these factors in a machine-like, unthinking, unconscious, inattentive way?

Re: intelligence

Because we're already used to adapting to changing situations. Some people won't but most will. And AIs won't be anything like a threat. It's only a question of adapting to a change in our way of life. We survived the fall of autocratic regimes and we adjusted to democracy. We adapted to the indust...

Saying people will adapt is a vague remedy for the bad. But how will they adapt?

Re: intelligence

I am concerned with the effect that artificial intelligence has on human intelligence. Will it effect how we are taught, what we are taught, how human intelligence will be utilized? People must adapt to change but artificial intelligence might be a massive change which cannot be resolved on the indi...

Re: intelligence

Margerine is not butter but it is a substitute for butter. Computer sight is not sight but it is a substitute for sight.

Artificial sweetener is a sweetener but its not sugar so it's a substitute for sugar.

Substitute is an alternative.
