Can Computers Learn?

Can Computers Learn?

Yes. Today, we know how to train a computer to “learn.” It takes a multi-layered neural network called Deep Learning. 

Yes, Deep Learning is a form of AI, but from a functional point of view today (2017), AI should be understood as Augmented (human) Intelligence.

In 1983, in the movie WarGames (starring a young Matthew Broderick), a computer supposedly learned futility by playing tic-tac-toe, and stopped playing Global Thermonuclear War. 

It’s only a movie, but the ending is spectacular and is only about six minutes. 

Watching these six minutes (with head phones) will help you understand our motivation for avoiding litigation.

“The only way to win is ….”
