I mean, come on -- we all know that unsolicited mail becomes more important and more likely to be viewed, even more likely to be positively viewed, the more times it's received.
That's just basic, right?

'Intelligence' seems to be something Gary's only heard about, but never experienced.

If they took it as a crank then the damage they are doing to themselves is certainly not my fault.
Please describe specifically the "stereotyping crap that is getting [the NAS] in trouble with the general public."  Provide examples.

Well of course you did.
After all, as the "theory" of 'intelligence' states, if you're not getting the desired or intended results, you should continue repeating the behavior unchanged until you do get the desired or intended results.
Oh, wait.  That's not at all what the "theory" of 'intelligence' asserts.
How is it you remain blind to all the many ways your own behavior falsifies your "theory" Gary?  Is it that you are not 'intelligent'?  That's what's entailed by your "theory"...

I also have to explain how the circuit works in a PC.

How biology accomplishes the same thing is another matter where what the equivalent mechanism is named is still "RAM".

Now we're back to claims that suggest there is no RAM in the PC used to model the circuit by using code that dimensions a "RAM array" to store all the critter's memories in, by trying to argue with that there is no analogy to RAM in a neural brain when it should be obvious from the way the model works that there is.

No evidence has ever been presented to the contrary of what is stated in the the theory and is in the the models.

I'm getting annoyed by the nameless mudslingers who have nothing better to do than complain over nothing, because they don't like the terminology of science and electronics required to study intelligence.

Not a single one is, Gary.  Yet you think they can be, despite your quaint little experiment making it quite clear to you that a system like this requires more than just RAM.

How did you miss the implications of your own work that badly?

Of course you do Gary.  But that's due far more to your  idee fixe, your presuppositions and fixations, than to any genuine merit in the notion.
The brain does not have RAM.
Ears do not address memory locations by address.

When I visualize this (more neural) technology in a speech recognition system I see a RAM being addressed by an ear.

If conclusions are made then it must be a controlled experiment.
no bringing immigrant peoples from backward nations into our nations AND THEN SCORING IT.
The only reason this stuff is allowed is because they don’t have to admit to a british or aryan or white superiority. Otherwise these books and writers would be burned at the stake.
Its proof its a liberal establishment and not common consent on these matters.

in reality there is no such thing as intelligence. just divisions of knowing.
The bible says Wisdom, first, and then understanding and then knowledge. its all outside us and its there for everybody HOWEVER generally the people you are born into and mingle with are the origin for what the kid picks up.
Thats why there are identity differences. Including motivation to explain female behindness etc.
You would have to think long and hard to deliberately cram so much toxic rubbish into so few words. There are at least three good reasons to keep your mouth closed in an Internet discussion:
1. If you don't know what you are talking about
2. If you don't want to prove that you don't know what you are talking about
3. If you don't want the flies to crap all over your tongue
I have to admit to being a big fan of female behindness.
But will you ever get to the bottom of it?
No, just arsing around.
We need to get back to fundamentals here.
You shouldn't make female anatomy the butt of your jokes.
Cheeky!

OK, but the ENCODE data still show activity for 80% of DNA. Nothing has changed. We will see how much of that is confirmed as functional in independent ways. Science must be patient.

There's a nice review of the case for "junk DNA" in PLOS Genetics, which I'm sure won't be mis-interpreted by 'news' at all.

      Quote
I think that it is rude to demand a citation from someone who is only explaining how Watson works.


Gary:

    Quote
Of course there is no mention by star of "temporal correlation" being "the way Watson works" you are the lunkhead who mentioned it.


"star0":

    Quote
Here's how you can derive "causation" from Big Data: suppose you have two "factors", call them X and Y. You know, based on data, that X is correlated with Y. But you don't know whether X causes Y, Y causes X, or whether there is no causal relation between them. One example of how they can be correlated, but for which there is no causal relation is if there is a THIRD factor Z that causes both of them. You can render these possibilities as graphical models as:

X --> Y,

X <-- Y, and

X <-- Z --> Y

How can you decide which one it is? Well, you can disentangle the first two, in some cases, through temporal knowledge. e.g. Usually, X --> Y implies that X precedes Y; but the converse is not true. So, you can do some temporal reasoning to eliminate possibilities. And there are other ways to separate them; for example, you can mine text, and look to see how people speak about the relationship between X and Y. Individuals are maybe not to be trusted, but high-quality sources are -- and individuals, in aggregate, are, in some cases (and, you can even do deeper modeling and figure out when they are and when they aren't).

Now what about the third possibility? Well, you need some candidate Zs to work with. And how can you find those? Again, this is where data-mining comes in: you go to the web, and look for co-occurrence of (X,Y) with other factors Z. Once you've located a set of possible Z's, then you need to determine whether the third possibility holds. You can, for instance, ELIMINATE the third case, again, using temporal reasoning. And you can do even more elaborate things.


Gary, what "star0" discusses above *is* temporal correlation. The 2003 Nobel Prize in Economics went to Clive Granger, in part for his development of temporal correlation as the basis for his causality test. What "star0" did not assert was that IBM's "Watson" uses temporal correlation for detecting causality. In fact, "star0" makes no claim at all about any method that "Watson" might be using in the entirety of that post.

To sum up: "star0" does discuss temporal correlation, but does not discuss "Watson" in that post (thus "star0" was not "explaining how Watson works", at least not in the post Gary quoted and I was referring to).

Gary is 0 for 2.

"Lunkhead", when used by Gary, means "perceptive".
Explaining how Watson works was in a number of their threads. That information came from just one of them. This one does maybe go into more than what Watson has but I would not be surprised by it already having that as well.

Star0 used the phrase "temporal reasoning" when talking about "causation" and I'm not sure whether they would agree that "temporal correlation" is a direct substitute. It might be, but in this case the question is why David Ferrucci said “People are so enamored with the data-driven approach that they believe correlation is sufficient."

This evening I'll have some time to go over your leads.

And "lunkhead" was to go with earlier reply about it sometimes getting like Three Stooges in this thread. It's a bit of humor without personal insult like I was responding to that you hurled at me.
