I like asking hypothetical questions with difficult answers. It's like Sudoku, but less boring.

Reading this article--while impressive--just shows us how far we are from a true AI. The definition of AI is "the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages".
In order to create a true AI, the machine itself would have to be as perfectly flawed as humans. It would have to possess the ability for irrational thinking, misinterpretation, forming a bias and then dismantling that bias. That would be true metalearning. We learn and interpret this world by making mistakes, recognizing these mistakes, then rectifying them. Additionally, in order for an AI to be fully integrated in our world AS a true AI and not a complex calculator, it would have to be able to recognize and factor in the numerous inconsistencies and exceptions in both our world and in humans. Creating an AI without these imperfections would make it nothing more than a machine, because as much science as philosophy provides on how and why and ways to recognize a human's thought process, there are always exceptions and information gaps.
As long as we are unsure of the exact way a human mind operates, a true AI will be nothing more than science fiction.

This is what it's like to fail.
To fall and scream,
To break and decay.
To float aimlessly until you're anchored at the bottom by the weight in your chest.
This is what it's like to lose.
To grasp nothingness.
To envy and hate.
To try again and again because you've been told you could but you can't and now you're--
This is what it's like to fall.
This is what it's like to crash.
This is what it's like to be collected in a heap of broken bones by the depths of despair and you're trapped, alone.
This is what it's like heal.
Slow and painful.
Cautiously, but able.
This is what it's like to stand.
To wobble and trip.
To stumble and shake.
To grasp blindly for the walls as support and they cut your palms, but you're on your feet.
This is what it's like to climb.
To burn and tremble.
To bleed and sweat.
To ignore the protests of your mind and heed the leaps of your heart until finally, finally!
And the light burns your eyes and skin and you're tired but you've started again and now, now you're--
This is what it's like to succeed.
I'm not a big DIYer, but just wanted to say that place looks beautiful!
