Bootstrapping CAIA Part III

 For the realization of a General Problem Solving system, a number of meta-problems arise. The main idea of bootstrapping is that these meta-problems will be solved by the system itself, in the same way as it solves the problems for which it was designed. CAIA is quite an elaborate system; however, it is not yet […]

CAIA is not a good magician

 Too often, IA researchers describe the successes of their system, but they keep a lower profile when they get poor outcomes. I do not want to comply to this bad habit. I describe here CAIA’s behavior when success does not come, in the present case, the magic square problem. An order N Magic Square has […]

CAIA surprised me Part I

 An AI researcher can always arrange his system so that it can find a solution that he already knows. To do that, he chooses a formulation well adapted to this solution, he includes all the methods necessary for this solution, and he indicates to avoid the roads that do not lead to the right direction.

CAIA, a sleeping beauty

When the Princess pricked her hand on a spindle, the fairies put everyone in the castle to sleep. The Prince Charming finally came and kissed the Princess; she awakened, and the rest of the castle went about their business as if they had not slept for one century. Artificial Cognition allows such miracles: a computer […]

CAIA, my colleague

Since 1985, I am working on the realization of CAIA, Chercheur Artificiel en Intelligence Artifice (an Artificial Artificial Intelligence Researcher). My goal is to bootstrap AI: the system in its present state must help me for the following steps of its development. Advancing in a bootstrap is an art, we must first give the system […]

The Singularity Part III

Overall, it does not seem that these arguments show that the existence of AI systems with a super-human intelligence is impossible. However, I am not totally sure that human beings will some day realize such systems, for two reasons, both depending on the limitations of human intelligence.   Firstly, have we enough intelligence to succeed?
