I'm about to leave work, I'm just waiting on a final request from someone that can be done in minutes. In the meantime, I'm checking the forum.

Okay, maybe Jim is my senior after all. His picture looks strangely like one of the old guys on the Muppet Show. Oh wait, is that is avatar? Oh well I should erase this paragraph but... nah. :)

HologenicMan, I agree with you completely. There will always be things that we need to accomplish on our own. We'll have our own private projects and so-forth. One of the things I'm doing for work is automating their system with A.I. or at least will if they can get some help in here to relieve me so I can go back into R&D. And of course, my home automation project not withstanding will be something that I'll tinker with when I need a diversion.

As you said, however, "The true challenge is perhaps the challenge of creating something together." The Athena project was a collaboration of four of us, each had certain skills that we threw together and ideas. The result was better than I think any one of us could have managed alone.

A few more minutes and if that request doesn't get here, I'm heading home!

Hi Randy,

I've been renovating a house(or two ) so I have not been able to pour the hours of personal time into my favorite passtime of working on my AI projects, but I have lined up my most recent(and oldest) project to work on when I get back into it in the thread called "Co-Pilot" in the Artificial Intelligence section of the forum.

Co-pilot is a voice-in/voice-out (With text in/out as a stand-by)interface application that has total access to control and emulate all human input and give the same as output.

This application should then be able to be linked with a variety of AI engines. My pet project is developing an AI engine that is based on holographic interference patterns in order to emulate true intelligence called the hologenic Brain.

However, this Co-Pilot interface should be useful to all those developing various AI engines, and I consider it to be the purest form of Virtual intelligence since it will not necessarilly require dedicated graphics and such for putting on "window dressing".

Check out the thread if you get the chance.

DISCOVERY: The more I learn, the more I learn how little I know.
GOAL: There's strength in simplicity.

Good luck with your project there Randy... just be careful not to wire the cieling fan, the blender, and/or anything sharp to the AI computer. One bad mood and there goes a finger... or a head!

I'm digging the whole Riker avatar btw. I'm glad you didn't choose Picard (old baldy!)

LOL!!! Well, Riker was a bit smoother with the ladies. :)

I thought about getting Kari connected to the house so I could say, "Hey sweet cheeks, grab me a beer and turn on the boob tube. Seinfeld is coming on!" But she'd probably get too smart by that time and say, "Get it yourself. I'm taking the credit card to Macy's," at which point I'd hear the car drive off and wonder how in the world she managed to do that?

Wow, Hologenicman, you've been busy! I'll definitely check out the thread. Thanks!

Back to my research. I'm not quite sure how I want to bundle all this together but that's what I'm trying to figure out now. I guess that's why it is research and not development. :)

Okay Randy, I am sure you agee that current BASIC ain't your father's BASIC, well maybe not your father but ahhh you know what I mean, I hope.

You could be as old as I am. If you aren't, hurry up and grow up, its great!!

Just for the record, that is my picture. Can't help it if the muppets chose someone so suave to copy.

There are some things we might be able to focus brains on, what are your interests?

Does it make a difference as long as we are heading the same direction?

Hi Jim!

Well, my first BASIC was from a brand new TRS-80 Level I computer with a whopping 4k of memory! I was really cooking when I upgraded to Level II and 16k. LOL!!!

Right now, I'm using PureBasic mainly. I created my own B-Tree filing system and turned it into a DLL with it among other things. But I'm game for anything really and any version. I have a few other flavors of the language.

My interests are: Esperanto and Klingon languages, guitar, writing poetry, writing romantic stories (it's odd but the benefit is the women love it so I won't knock it), constructed languages, robotics, artificial intelligence, creating music, writing songs, programming, and recently home automation. I think that's it.

Well, if I run into you in a Majik-Mart somewhere, at least I'll recognize you. :D

And if we are both heading in the same direction, at least we'll get there together, wherever there happens to be!
