I don't think this is a failure so much as a renewed recognition that there is an A in AI - Artificial. To me artificial intelligence should be different from human intelligence. I think the idea of load balancing between people and computers is a great one - see http://www.edmblog.com/weblog/2006/07/load_balancing_.html

Olivier Bousquet

The title of my post was intentionally provocative.
But I agree with you: combining both human and artificial intelligence(s) is probably a promising direction.

Matthew Hurst

In the early days of AI there was solid motivation to study the area both by better understanding and to better understand human intelligence. This part of the programme has been lost in the vast array of niche areas of study that are currently associated with AI. If one associates the 'completion' of AI research with a full(er) understanding of human intelligence, then one wouldn't be surprised at the rate of success.

Personally, I believe in the inevitable appearance of strong AI. It wouldn't surprise me, however, that it will come from an unexpected direction. That is to say, not out of academic research labs, but out of some highly capitalized business area such as computer games or humanoid robotics.

Jean-Marc Kerisit

I agree with you: the totalitary vision of Artificial Intelligence has definitely failed (hopefully for ever); and time is coming for a more modest AI dream: take benefinit of all technologies to propose to human beings developing and enhancing their intelligence power thanks to ergonomic cooperation with algorithms, systems and machines. Would AI enable us to become more human ? This seems to me a hopeful question to raise...

I came across your blog via google when I was looking for a way to cover a corkboard with fabric. Thank you SO much for the step by step instructions. I am in love with my "new" bulletin board and will be sure to do this fun and easy craft again. I tried to do the buttons as well on my push pins, but to no avail, they didn't work. Do you have some advice for those? Maybe I didn't use enough glue? Maybe I should have used thumb tacks in lieu of push pins? I would love your advice!

sildenafil citrate

Just working through some notes on ethics and social networks and I thought I'd share the following paragraph that I've been working on - because it seems counter-intuitive at first.

There is a growing consensus that comments posted in social networks are not ‘in the public domain’ and that researchers should seek permission to use them. Researchers should also remember that because the internet is so readily searchable, they should avoid using literal quotes from social network discussions (in most cases) as this will potentially reveal who the respondent is.

In many codes of ethics and in a growing number of laws, the intention/expectation of the person making a post is important in determining what can be done with that post. In terms of privacy there are two issues. The first is that if a researcher has to join a network to see the post, then the person making the post is doing so in the expectation that they are talking to genuine members of the community, not to professional researchers or journalists. The second that is when somebody makes, say, 200 posts in their status bar over the course of a year, they did not have the expectation that all their quotes would be brought back together as a single corpus for investigation.

I think its not fair to compare article intelligence with human intelligence. I don't agree with the writer that its the failure of artificial intelligence and it is doing its work but will take time to reach highest level.
