The Hunt for Artificial Intelligence

I ran a 'series' of posts on the prospects and dilemmas of Artificial Intelligence a couple of months back and this past week, the BBC featured a Horizon documentary exploring how close we are to developing machines that think like us. In this clip, Marcus du Sautoy comments how robots have been programmed to learn like children and in the process develop their own independent spoken language. I still retain considerable ambivalence around a future of fully automated truly intelligent machines. This aspect is not explored, though the full programme, available here, makes for interesting viewing as we work towards that.
