Or was that a correction error arising from trying to write “apace”.

Nick,

 

It's actually more like six thousand pages. However many pages thousands of 
rabbis can write in 600 years, more or less.  Deborah found it and posted it on 
our refrigerator.

 

I understand you are recovering space.

Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief.  Do justly, now.  Love 
mercy, now. Walk humbly, now.  You are not obligated to complete the work, but 
neither are you free to abandon it.

 

By the way.  Now in my 80th year, I am officially against technology.  I was OK 
with everything up through the word processor.  (I hated carbons.) Everything 
after that, I could do without.  

 

Really!  What has AI done for me lately? 

 

What  was it Flaubert said about trains?  Something like, they just made it 
possible for people to run around faster and faster and be stupid in more 
places.

Talmud:

Plus 10,000 other pages.

Grant, does it really seem plausible to you that the thousands of crack

Just for FRIAM’s information, John McCarthy used to call Asimov’s Three Laws 
Talmudic. Sorry I don’t know enough about the Talmud to agree or disagree.

What is probability, physically?   It could be an illusion and that there is no 
such thing as an independent observer.   Even if that is true, sampling 
techniques are used in many machine learning algorithms -- it is not a question 
of if they work, it is an academic question of why they work.

That sounds right, Carl. Asimov's three "laws" of robotics are more like 
Asimov's three "wishes" for robotics. AI entities are already no longer 
servants. They have become machine learners. They have actually learned to 
project conditional probability. The cat is out of the barn. Or is it that the 
horse is out of the bag?  

Whatever. Fortunately, the AI folks don't seem to see - yet - that they are 
stumbling all over the missing piece: stochastic adaptation. You know, like in 
evolution: chance mutations. AI is still down with a bad case of causal 
determinism. But I expect they will fairly shortly get over that. Watch out.

And we still must answer Stephen Hawking's burning question: Is intelligence a 
survivable trait?

It seems to me that there are many here in the US who are not entirely on board 
with Asimov's First Law of Robotics, at least insofar as it may apply to

fly.

For sure not a human being in the way we know.
