ABC and Alphabet Learning of Artificial Intelligence
Have you ever noticed that sometimes humans in conversation or writing will
simply come up with a new word to describe something? You know like an
invent-a-word? Of course we know that when humans do this that they do so from
looking for a word to express a thought, yet cannot find the right word handy so
they simply invent one, which is a relative approximation. This is something
humans do often without giving it a whole lot of thought and generally when
people do this, we do not bother to say anything as we understand exactly what
they are talking about.
But how can we teach a robot or an artificial intelligent machine to do this?
Could we simply teach it to use an alphabet and begin by teaching it the ABCís?
Sounds pretty crazy teaching a machine to think in that way? Well, imagine what
the first human thought or you yourself were thinking as you learned to express
4-dimensional thought using symbols to make up words to put onto a 2-dimensional
piece of paper? By golly it is a silly method indeed isnít it? Should we teach
robots and artificial intelligent machines to do the same or do we hold shorts
as not to clutter them with junk? Interesting isnít it?
Well there are some artificial intelligent machines which are being taught
human languages and symbols, letters to read and spell and even communicate and
you might be surprised to find out that they are able to indeed create new words
and actually use them semantically correct, well, if they were actually words,
they would fit right in, just like humans do?
