This page offers posts on Artificial Intelligence
This invitation is an important sign of a recognition (especially considering that I have never been trained in the field of AI)
Who will train our “artificial puppies”? But more importantly – who will train the trainers? Two questions which will haunt AI development very soon.
Will Artificial Intelligence Save, Replace or even Affect Education Practices? (a venture capitalist’s view)
A high-level of thinking, or a human-level thinking, or what I call – thinking, is, by my definition, a deliberate manipulation with abstract mental entities in order to achieve a specific mental goal, i.e. to develop/construct/design a specific mental object/construct/concept/model.
This ability is the reason we call humans “intelligent species”.
Term “deliberate” implies that the person who is in the process of thinking is aware of the fact that he/she is in the process of thinking – he/she is doing it on purpose. That means, thinking, or to be more accurate, human-level of thinking cannot happen without self-awareness. Self-awareness is a state of mind. And no AI professional, not a single one the whole world, has any idea of how to generate that state in an artificial mind called an artificial neural network. No AI professional has any idea how to teach an artificial brain to think.
1. Hows does Intelligence function?
2. How to make an artificial device which mimics the functions of intelligence?
The structure of the investments in AI clearly shows that professionals in the field pay way too much attention to the latter (second) question and ignore the most important one - the former (the first). In this environment an actual artificial intelligence is not coming any soon.
Two short video presentations:
The links to all six my applications to the NSF 2026 Big Idea Machine (from August 31, 2018 to October 26, 2018):
1. Entry125253: High Frequency Data Streams in Education
2. Entry124656: objective measures of physics knowledge
3. Entry125317: National database teacher PD
4. Entry124655: role of NSF in funding education
NB. I was disqualified due to multiple entrees; evidently, the NSF Idea Machine has no need for an idea machine :)
Additional publications are at GoMars.xyz
P.S. A large portion of my ideas come to me while I am in traffic or in a swimming pool. During the day there is not often much of a time to formalize them in a fashionable way. This blog is the best I can do. Well, so far, let's wait for retirement.
