Definition of AI

11/24/2000

I can offer one formal definition of AI. It is on the address:
http://dobrev.com/AI/definition.html.

This definition is pretty different form the other which I read and the main difference is that other definition assumes that Intelligence is a human plus knowledge. It this definition Intelligence in only a human and the knowledge is something the can be obtained.

Yes, I read this definition. It is one interesting point of view. A little bit confusing but anyway interesting. I am ready to accept part of it but you make too many assumption in it. For example you assume that AI is a step device which can not be true if the world is not discreet.

No, the assumption that AI is a step device donít change anything. You can assume that the time for one step is so small that this will make the step device AI equivalent to asynchronical device AI.

If you agree that the information which AI transfers (per second) is finite then, for example, you can make the number of the steps per second equal to the number of the bits per second.

I am sorry but I cannot agree that the information which AI transfers (per second) is finite. This is true only if AI is a digital device but if it is analogical device then the transferred information cannot be calculated in bits, i.e. it is not finite.
