我 | Musica est mea vita; philosophia ego est.
或者说我希望这样。

哲学 | 『你命我避开人群。』——塞内卡
我在努力。

科学 | 『Chaos is everywhere.』——J. Gleick
正在逐渐意识到。

音乐 | 『他分不清巴松和单簧管,也分不清钢琴和抽水马桶。』——肖斯塔科维奇
说的就是我。

宗教 | 『我是个拙劣的,于心不忍的无神论者。』——木心
我也是。

爱 | 『最后他们发现,“我并没有想象中的那样喜欢做协调家。”』——沽柳《孤流》
但愿永远不出此言。

随笔 2017-04-08

We often say amazing things about human mind, and following that, add longingly: but machine, despite how delicate it is, cannot do this. 

With the hope of deep learning, however, I am optimistic that machine can do things like human. Machines, robots, they come to earth with a clean slate, unlike human infants. They are purely logical and precise. But we are not. We categorize, sacrificing information for efficiency. We have emotions, because we are designed to function in a society (supposingly). Machines, if we only need them to calculate numbers or vacuum the house, do not need such functions. But now we try to code emotions and human cognition into the programs, because want robots that think like human. 

From a lower basis, we see that humanlike behavior can be coded into machines. From higher level, no AI has yet passed the Turing test. Nontheless, I am optimistic about AI. The brain being however complex, we have already known so much of it and we will know more. On the other hand, even if one day a robot passed the Turing test, mixes itself perfectly among human beings, we still cannot say it has awareness, consciousness and mind. 

Because it is never rational to say we can assume another human to have such things: they may be conditioned neuron patterns that too pass the Turing test. We think they do, because they look like yourself and you assume you yourself do. 

But do you? Lol.
