    Hey there. I do not know about that. Early computers (while large i.e. room sized) where originally calculators and designed for dealing with numerical calculation. Current computers are still calculators (I.M.O) i.e. a value is assigned to a colour or musical note and converted as such. For example primitive computers were eight-bit yielding two-hundred and fifty-six positions (255(11111111)+1( 00000000)). Many colours can be produced by assigning a value FROM 256 to the three primary colour (Red Green and Blue.) Put simply a colour (or shade) may be expressed as follows: RGB=1,2,3

    The same is true of notes, positions on a screen or positions of a mouse etc. Put simply EVERYTHING and ANYTHING can be expressed numerically.

    I simply use my ACTUAL calculator which is capable of handling the letters A,B,C,D,E,F,X,Y and Z (which may have values assigned to them) and is expressed by the calculator as:


    Should artificial intelligence BE created then within the machine one would imagine it to be similar to the early universe...

    It's a mistake to think of artificial intelligence as an entity such as a giant computer or a robot. In the next few years, artificial intelligence will be embedded in every device from cars to microwave ovens (which will learn exactly how hot you like your pizza and adjust the time accordingly).

    I would imagine with the money that is being poured into AI research that IF IT IS POSSIBLE for computer/program to become sentient we will see it within 20 years or so.

    Will humans ever find a niche for a uniquely human intelligence that is robustly useful in ways that mass-produced machines can never emulate?
    It used to be checkers, but machines beat all human challengers in 1992.
    It used to be backgammon, but machines beat all human challengers in 1996.
    It used to be othello, but machines beat all human challengers in 1999.
    It used to be chess, but machines beat all human challengers in 2002.
    It used to be Scrabble, but machines beat all human challengers in 2002.
    It used to be traveling, but machines beat human-made challenges in 2005 and 2007 and Google self-driving cars have only had accidents where humans were at fault.
    It used to be being able to answer natural language questions intelligently and correctly, but in 2011 a computer won at Jeopardy against experienced champions.
    It used to be go. But ...

    Much as I am a fan of AI research and accomplishments, and hope they continue apace, the pattern of overestimation and marketing hype - in everything from video game subtlety to terrorist identification to controlling bipedal locomotion - is long established.

    The last go-round in car piloting, 2015 (eight years after the triumph of 2007) handed us this from the very top performing AI, the best we have:
    Let's just say that I find claims of being able to predict the behavior of cyclists, say, in need of demonstration. Public, non-virtual, demonstration.
