This is my first post of links about this fascinating and wide topic. See my other posts about Artificial Intelligence.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the intelligence of machines and the branch of computer science that aims to create it. AI textbooks define the field as “the study and design of intelligent agents”[1] where an intelligent agent is a system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chances of success.[2] John McCarthy, who coined the term in 1955,[3] defines it as “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines.”[4]

AI research is highly technical and specialized, deeply divided into subfields that often fail to communicate with each other.[5] Some of the division is due to social and cultural factors: subfields have grown up around particular institutions and the work of individual researchers. AI research is also divided by several technical issues. There are subfields which are focussed on the solution of specificproblems, on one of several possible approaches, on the use of widely differing tools and towards the accomplishment of particularapplications. The central problems of AI include such traits as reasoning, knowledge, planning, learning, communication, perception and the ability to move and manipulate objects.[6] General intelligence (or “strong AI”) is still among the field’s long term goals.[7] Currently popular approaches include statistical methods, computational intelligence and traditional symbolic AI. There are an enormous number of tools used in AI, including versions of search and mathematical optimization, logic, methods based on probability and economics, and many others.

A computer learns the hard way: By reading the Internet
At Carnegie-Mellon university, a massive computer system called NELL (Never Ending Language Learner) is systematically reading the internet and analyzing sentences for semantic categories and facts, teaching itself English and educating itself in human affairs.

“The Selfish Biocosm” -A Radical Theory Says We’ve Already Received a Message from ET
Gardner believes that we’ve already received a message from ET: a message coded into the laws and constants of our universe, including the inexplicable force we’ve named dark energy that’s accelerating cosmic expansion. His theory makes sense of the observation that the constants seems rigged in favor of the emergence of life.

Is AI More Common Than Biological Intelligence Across the Universe?
In a recent article, Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) astronomer Seth Shostak makes an intriguing claim: SETI should start pointing its telescopes toward corners of the known universe that would be friendly not just to intelligent aliens but to artificial alien intelligence.
