Artificial Intelligence —- Build up from Small Pieces

Last blog, we talked about the intelligence of devices will increases in an unimaginative way. However, this need the effort from everybody, to build the real artificial intelligence one by one by small pieces of blocks.

Since an approach to artificial intelligence is simulating our brains, how do our brain thinking and processing. The idea will be that we program the small functions step by step as a block, without realizing what it will real be. For example, we program a small function that can only recognize circles, and it simulate the way how people thinking, like what’s the color of this circle, is it a regular circle or is it hidden of some parts?

This small program function should simulate whole path that human thinking as more as possible, if during the path there is somewhere too hard to achieve, we can divide it again, until we can easily without too much efforts to program it.

We don’t have to think will this program can be developed as a product or not, the only thing that we should do is to “Simulate” or brains!

“Divide and conquer.” As the old saying, we accumulatively build the blocks, and combine them, finally it would be an enormous system that can “Think itself”.

    Hi, doesn’t the implementation of a series of block functions conflict with the parallel thinking of a human? For example, a human can immediately see that there is a red square in a picture with an irregular form of corners, they can be rounded for example. With a series program, won’t it take a lot of time to come to that conclusion because you have to converge to the result?

      I think it is depends on how you implement the methods, if you can use a parallel implementation, then it will calculate much more faster. However, I just propose an idea about what we can do to achieve the goal, otherwise it seems impossible to make real artificial intelligence works. And more and more faster computer will also reduce the calculation time.

    Wahh…..! this technology seems so awsome! We’re now on the way to” terminator”.but it seems this technology is quite complex since thounds of parts is need? From our high-tech level ,how long would it cost for completion one experiment?

      As I said, it will develop in a exponential way, and we are now standing on the knee point of the exponential curve, I think it won’t take as long time as how human make revolution 100 years ago.

    Aren’t there already some good examples of artificial Intelligence? Ofcourse it will still evolve and it will be very impressive. But can you think of any existing examples that implement the beginning principles of artificial intelligence.

    While replicating the function of the brain to the degree that we can simulate it is possible, and we have actually done it. This method, while presumably accurate, is still very time consuming. Even a second’s worth of activity takes hours for the world’s fastest super computers to simulate! Wouldn’t it be more interesting to come up with a sufficiently accurate approximation of the brain?
