But real intelligence, that humans will not be able to create through mechanized means. Failing to even mention Ray Kurzweil and laughing off his work as "those people who think computers are going to grow legs and walk away. Been listening to your podcast everyday at work for the past month. Congratulations to Robert Krulwich on the recent Radiolab "Talking to Machines". For those who think that a chatbot is unusual or unique, I assure you that it is not. Cleverbot: My favorite game ever is 'The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time'.

Not only do you belabor the episodes with explanations of concepts that ought to be common knowledge to anyone with Bachelors degree, (I mean really, you've interrupted the latest shows with 10 minutes digressions explaining general relativity, and the Turing Test.) Its great that you guys delve deeper into topics that wow freshman philosophy classes, but I wish you wouldn't ruin the show by assuming that these are utterly new and staggeringly breakthrough ideas that you must devote 10 minutes of remedial backstory to-- so there was this guy named Descarte--you've probably never heard of him--he had this radical idea about the ontology of consciousness... You are incapable of having anything important to say. Cleverbot: Too bad that hasn't improved your furby part especially reminds me of the twilight zone episode #7 "the lonely" where a prisoner on an asteroid in the future is given a beautiful android woman as a companion.While he had spent many years teaching young people how to play instruments and encouraging them through their public performances, he, a cellist by training, had never performed a private recital.This year would be […] It really doesn’t get any better than this: one of my sisters in religious life and the Franciscan Order, Sr.Why Oh Why is a weekly podcast that launched on the Panoply Network in September 2016.
