Relating to the idea that text compression (as demonstrated by general compression algorithms) is a measure of intelligence, Claims: (1) To understand natural language requires knowledge (CONTEXT) of the social world(s) it refers to. (2) Communication includes (at most) a shadow of the context necessary to understand it.
Given (1), no context-free analysis can understand natural language. Given (2), no adaptive agent can learn (proper) understanding of natural language given only texts. For human-like understanding, an AGI would need to participate in (human) social society. -- [EMAIL PROTECTED] -- http://www.fastmail.fm - And now for something completely different ----- This list is sponsored by AGIRI: http://www.agiri.org/email To unsubscribe or change your options, please go to: http://v2.listbox.com/member/?member_id=8660244&id_secret=49226099-404e4b
