   RE: [xml-dev] Are there any limits?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The BAA goes into some desirable characteristics where 
introspection, self-improvement, etc. dominate.  We 
already have such things in GUIs that adapt to user 
habits.  Is that self-awareness or environmental 

It is possible to build such, but I doubt it 
qualifies as biological self-awareness.  Can 
such pass a Turing Test?  It depends on the tester, 
but for many cases, sure.   Now, a lot depends 
on who has to be fooled, yes?

It's an interesting BAA for those who like the 
challenge of "what they say can't be done" 
because even a magnificent failure advances the 
state of the art.   A fun task is to review the 
requirements and try to discern the enervating 
simplification (eg, unifying names and locations
in a single string).

Formally define "self-aware" and the answer will be either "yes" or "no"
