    Perhaps I was being too harsh but I don't consider behaviour you can sketch out on a 3x3 post-it note as AI :nope:

    Yup. Lots of once promising things, like machine learning and decision trees, were evolved in the pursuit of believable AI. Many technqiues were discarged but have found uses in non-AI applications.

    I don't work for GCHQ. :nope: Our resources are used for entirely for the benefit of mankind and finding really funny cat videos on the internet. Actually, that does sound a lot like GCHQ. :confused:

    Dont tell people that Machine Learning is not AI, then there are a few VCs around the world that will see their cash run the same way as their Crypto coins will :D

    "We must scrupulously guard the civil rights and civil liberties of all citizens, whatever their background. We must remember that any oppression, any injustice, any hatred, is a wedge designed to attack our civilization." -- Franklin D. Roosevelt

    So are you a spy or not? I mean, maybe you are one of those kinds of people now.

    I think the jury is out on machine learning. I wonder what Tay would think? :runaway:

    I'm not sure what alternative answer you'd get to that question anyway.

    What about Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach by Russel and Norvig ? I liked this one and thought it was a must read.

    It's not very modern any more which isn't a problem and I think it is still a must read if you want an intro of how to get into the mindset needed for making machine learning systems.

    Yeah, I can't think of one single book that would cover things. Older books are easier to absorb because there was less history (but are naturally dated) yet more recent books generally assume the reader has at least a minimal understanding of what's gone before and why certain branches of research were abandoned.

    My most anticipated Game pass for PC game... Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition, now has a human-like, non cheating AI and you can actually learn from it while it plays. (will buy the game using the Gamepass discount, also it features cross-play with Steam)

    Sadly they don't explain any of that. In what way did the old AI cheat? What is the new AI doing? IIRC the old AoE AI was simply script based. I presume by cheating they mean having access to resources and stuff faster than the player as is typical of difficulty adjustment, so the AIs can mine faster and build faster as they can't out-think.

    Oh yeah. That constant early stream of direct attacks, pestering you until you have your army of 40 archers, a couple of healers, and can comfortably march across the land laying waste.
