comment Does super-intelligence necessary lead to consciousness, self awareness, freewill or emotion
Superb answer. The final part "Indepedent goal-directed behavior" just answered by question I asked in the first answer.

Also, I think (I amn't sure) that knowledge increases with more information provided the capability to transform information into valuable knowledge with perception that could be further transformed into meaningful decisions. Can't this be replicated in machines at a minor scale (I am extending a futuristic argument and not for the near future plus I am interested in AI)

Top answer. But can you kindly elaborate me on the final part. Just because brain is a complex structure that evolved over time, does that mean that we cannot create a structure more complex that brain(I am sure that the entire working of the brain is still not deciphered and it won't be in the near future) given the sensory capabilities and perception of knowledge by the humans is introduced into the machine. Simply, can't a AI machine be created that's intelligent than a human(not intelligent than mankind).

@sam You can get my email id from my profile. Just prefix @ to my name to ping me(You have already done it). Ping me in chat so that we could move the discussion there or send a mail

@SchroedingersCat And regarding reading natural language, we can cut down a few (infact a lot) of the original language comprehensions to make it simpler. NLTK is a real good starting point

@SchroedingersCat Spot on. On top of it, to build a truly intelligent machine, it must perceive things in the right sense. So what is right brings into the equation a philosopher

@sam I am also thinking about creating a research framework with a mass simulation engine that could resemble a lot of your characteristics. Feel free to ping me or send a mail for further information

comment Does learning one discipline improve performance in another discipline?
I too feel the same. The recent example being using the concepts learnt from Distributed/Parallel computing to distribute work within colleagues(actually, it must be the other way round to learn things). I also believe learning psychology and economics would make people more rational. But is is my belief and I just can't generalize it. Also, learning more than one discipline takes real good time and unless it is proved that the benefits are bigger than the time lost, it isn't to be adopted at large. Thanks for the positive reply
