    Its foundation is the discovery that great ideas are the result of noisy neurons and faulty memories.

    how'd he get a patent on my brain?---

    oh, could be "W's"
    (that Bush is quite an 'inventor' -for sure)

    (but who knows what 'virus' lies dormant
    in the Mad CowBoy brain....)

    something to chew on.....

    lotta food for thought--quite a meal


    this guy's like the Tesla of neural-networks.

    love it- don't touch that coil!!!

    I just moved up my estimate of the singularity by ten years. Before 2050 now.

    Do you think this will be a good thing or a bad thing?

    It is only a matter of time before computers are "smarter" than humans They already beat us with shear brute force.

    I for one embrace our AI overloards.

    don't care for the cockroach models.....
    but the Pamela Anderson models, all right!!

    i think i dreamed about this 'article' last night

    seriously-can't get it out of my mind...

    Did this Steven Thaler ask his machine what its name was?

    So this just reinforces my point that I'm not crazy, just overly creative!

    Sounds like a need for the birth of a 'computer rights society', to protect neural networks from being mistreated in an inhumain way. lol

    These could be quite usefull,
    Just imagine a game, where your adversaries can learn and grow.
    Make a 'Deciding' Neural net, which decides which cource of action is the correct one (FSM, in a ches game a minimax tree)
    And give the second neural net a 'memory' (link outputs to inputs),
    And it would be a verry hard opponant.

    That's about all I can say.


    Is this a huge as it seems to me, or am I just being overly optimistic and taken by the romance of someone stumbling upon the key to true AI and analogesque digital brains?

    It does appear to me to be that huge: which of course is why I am skeptical.
