And if it's declared intelligent, and then someone figures out how to explain how it came up with whatever the original content is, then does it just become less intelligent?
But notice the huge area of the Venn diagram labelled "false positives"...
Hasn't anyone considered that the Superman logo didn't belong on a memorial in the first place? It's supposed to be about a particular child, not a fictional character.
Creativity is not related to intelligence.
But you probably do need above average creativity to make a living from it, so that still leaves half the planet without career options.
The soul is information. It doesn't have a physical location.
Forget implant devices. With enough mental training, Vulcans can stimulate this part of the humanoid brain just by pinching someone on the neck.
(Luckily, humanoids have very similar physiology in their nervous systems.)
most of the human race will have more leisure time
By 'leisure', I assume he is referring to the soul-crushing unemployment, wasteful training, futile job-searching, and humiliating dependence on welfare/charity that a growing proportion of the human race is subjected to now.
What are these "jobs" of which you speak?
Of course black holes.
But super-massive black holes - the interesting question - probably came last, although they avoided that aspect of the question.
What do you think the heavens are made of? Obviously all the parts of the heavens came first.
If you are trying to get a job to put food on the table and you really don't have another option
Sure it feels that way, but how often does that happen for real?
The key is the last item in the article:
“This is a resistance to decrees which they think undermine competitive Swedish agricultural production,”
The researcher has probably never spent time on a farm. She apparently had a stereotype of farmers as victims of big industry helplessly struggling to live in harmony with nature in the face of changing climate. In real life farmers are industry - the agricultural industry. They work very hard to maintain a farm, a farm being something radically out of balance with nature. Unless the laws and 'free' 'trade' agreements change to alter their economic incentives, their focus will be on their immediate, short-term economic situation and whatever mythology is tied up with their understanding of those economics.
The telling part is "Or at least that these are not triggered by human activities." If the climate is changing, then the question of the cause is the first part of finding a solution, but the problem does not magically become less serious depending on who or what the cause is. Someone who goes off-topic about human activities is trying - poorly - to rationalize their denial.
Solution: use natural language to tell the computer what you want to do.
Because we all know that all programmers do is follow the requirements document from the client, which never requires any clarification/investigation/analysis/follow-up/etc.
The really well-known medals like Victoria Cross / Congressional Medal are not awarded for merely doing your job, but there are medals for all sorts of things.
Simply being in a combat zone, regardless of the actual task one is doing, is more dangerous and requires more courage than anything most people will do in their entire life, and merits recognition of a certain degree.
Phogiston (thermal energy) and the luminiferous aether (space-time geometry) are real. It was the materials science metaphors that were wrong.
