    Hi, I'm in my exam year now and i have to choose a study soon. I'm hesitating between Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science.
    I like A.I. because it's still in it's child shoes and it's a study aimed to the future. And I like A.I. in robots(Isaac Asimov is my favourite author) But I'm also afraid that with A.I. I would be doing a lot of stuff with which I can't really achieve something, whereas with computer science I would have a lot of power to do things. And with computer science I would do what I do now already, only better; and A.I. is a whole different branch of programming which I'm not so familiar with(like the language prolog)
    What do you think of this?
    thanks.

    Hi, how are you? I'm Steve.

    only since you've asked. I don't think you cold achieve intelligence by artificial means, or intelligence can not be artificial. As you might be on the search for the undone, perhaps you could try to write about this. There was a discrepancy, I would say.

    I think you misunderstood me, A.I. is a study you can choose.
    But I also think intelligence can be made aritificial, I don't think human intelligence has some kind of special 'spirit' which makes that it's irreproducable. Our brains are also just a combination of atoms, though a complicated one, but i think we will be able to reproduce it artificial and after that, make it better. And that is indeed the final goal of the study, but of course that will take some years.

    Well, I'm thinking both of us do mean the same, pretty much. Only, I'm getting bogged at the 'artificial' term, with hindsight to the complex structure which we are about to reproduce. I think, sure we will make it. But, only as we respect the uniqueness of live, as well.

    Don't you think, that, when you're about to create intelligence, that you have to come by live prior, somehow? Could you, at the moment you structure the specifics of live, in some way, still talk about this accomplishment to be 'working' in an artificial correlation in itself?

    No. It's being way too complex, obviously, to still be artificial, I expose.

    Well, my posts are being meant to be somewhat helpful. I don't meant to kick off an off topic debate in your thread. Please, If you wouldn't like this venture, that's ok with me of course!

    Steve
