I just started a similar series…..
Machines Can’t Learn from Scratch: Part 1
This is the first article in a brand new series describing why machines can’t learn. Each article will be based on five core principles:
- The main goal I have is to equip the reader with an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of logic, both formal and symbolic as well as the basics of analytic philosophy. If you would like to build a solid foundation to analyze why artificial intelligence does not exist and may never for your industry and your personal life, then this series is for you.
- The plan is to cover the the most basic logical arguments that show clearly that machines can’t learn as well as some others not based on laws that have been understood as universal since man first gained consciousness. I will not discuss any arguments that have either failed to gain traction or any speculative ideas that have no logical support.
- The material is self-contained and develops the foundations of logical analysis applied to why machines can’t learn one step at a time. Saying that owning a dictionary is a prerequisite would be an overstatement. Some articles will cover topics as basic as definitions of words, parts of speech, and grammar.
- Each concept will be explained with at least one example. I think that one of the most effective strategies to approach an abstract topic is to distill it down to a simple case, make it concrete with vivid examples and finally reconstruct the big picture. When it seems useful, the text will completed with visuals. This core principle will be ignored.
- I desire no feedback and specifically forbid anyone from commenting in any way. This series is not about experiments or learning. Wait, I take that back, it is about learning, rather it is about not learning. I despise questions and as I already mentioned want no feedback, constructive or otherwise, any time! Do not dare to question me for in this series I am like a God to you.
Let’s get started.
