AI News, A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001) artificial intelligence

John McCarthy (computer scientist)

John McCarthy (September 4, 1927 – October 24, 2011) was an American computer scientist and cognitive scientist.

developed the Lisp programming language family, significantly influenced the design of the ALGOL programming language, popularized timesharing, and was very influential in the early development of AI.

In 1958, he proposed the advice taker, which inspired later work on question-answering and logic programming.

Based on the lambda calculus, Lisp soon became the programming language of choice for AI applications after its publication in 1960.[14]

His colleague Lester Earnest told the Los Angeles Times: 'The Internet would not have happened nearly as soon as it did except for the fact that John initiated the development of time-sharing systems.

In 1961, he was perhaps the first to suggest publicly the idea of utility computing, in a speech given to celebrate MIT's centennial: that computer time-sharing technology might result in a future in which computing power and even specific applications could be sold through the utility business model (like water or electricity).[18]

However, since 2000, the idea has resurfaced in new forms (see application service provider, grid computing, and cloud computing).

In 1966, McCarthy and his team at Stanford wrote a computer program used to play a series of chess games with counterparts in the Soviet Union;

In 1982 he seems to have originated the idea of the 'space fountain', a type of tower extending into space and kept vertical by the outward force of a stream of pellets propelled from Earth along a sort of conveyor belt which returns the pellets to Earth (payloads would ride the conveyor belt upward).[19]

farcically explored the question of whether robots should have (or simulate having) emotions, and anticipated aspects of Internet culture and social networking that have become increasingly prominent during ensuing decades.[25]

His second wife was Vera Watson, a programmer and mountaineer who died in 1978 attempting to scale Annapurna I as part of an all-women expedition organised by Arlene Blum.

In it he wrote, 'Machines as simple as thermostats can be said to have beliefs, and having beliefs seems to be a characteristic of most machines capable of problem-solving performance.'

Searle argues that machines lack 'understanding' or 'intentionality' (a term commonly used in the philosophy of mind).

I think A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001) is one of those movies that greatly benefits from additional viewings

My mom was 3 hours away, and it was the first night there out of a week, so I was feeling pretty homesick.

I always had this irrational fear of my mom abandoning me, even though she never even hinted or pretended that she'd ever do that.

I had a really bad panic attack and started crying, but I pulled myself together because I was so completely engrossed in the film making on display and the story.

I cried through all of the end credits until my grandpa finally woke up to this distraught 11 year old boy with puffy red eyes, wiping away tears, and snot running down my face.

So yeah, I love this film, I re-watch it a lot, I cry or at the very least tear up every time I watch it, and when my mom passes away I'll probably never be able to sit through it again.
