My AI Teddy Bear by nxp67

In our world today, artificial intelligence agents can be almost anyone, from Internet webcrawlers to poetry and fiction writers.

April 26, 2009, 6:07 pm - [1]

The possibilities are endless.

April 26, 2009, 6:08 pm - [2]

Intelligence agents are undoubtedly valuable tools for our society.

April 26, 2009, 6:12 pm - [3]

Everyone dreams of getting his or her hands on one of these AI (artificial intelligence) ?toys.?

April 26, 2009, 6:17 pm - [4]

If I were given a teddy bear that could be programmed as an AI, I would use it as a personal assistant.

April 26, 2009, 6:19 pm - [5]

My life would be much simpler if I could have a really intelligent personal assistant.

April 26, 2009, 6:20 pm - [6]

In some ways, a robotic assistant would be better than a human because it would require no salary and would make fewer errors.

April 26, 2009, 6:26 pm - [7]

The gender of my teddy bear assistant will be male.

April 26, 2009, 6:27 pm - [8]

I will name him William. William sounds like an intelligent name.

April 26, 2009, 6:30 pm - [9]

I think that fits well with the appearance of the teddy bear.

April 26, 2009, 6:31 pm - [10]

William will be more than just a toy or a computer.

April 26, 2009, 6:35 pm - [11]

He will be like a friend or a family member.

April 26, 2009, 6:36 pm - [12]

He will definitely have a personality.

April 26, 2009, 6:37 pm - [13]

He will be cheerful, friendly, caring, honest, and hard working.

April 26, 2009, 6:44 pm - [14]

In addition, I will program William to have a sense of humor.

April 26, 2009, 6:50 pm - [15]

Even though he not have the ability to move independently, William will be able to talk, learn, and process information.

April 26, 2009, 6:53 pm - [16]

Teaching William will not be easy.

April 26, 2009, 6:58 pm - [17]

Since he is not very large in size, I will take William to class with me.

April 26, 2009, 6:59 pm - [18]

This way he will be able to acquire the knowledge related to my coursework and assist me in doing homework and studying for tests.

April 26, 2009, 7:00 pm - [19]

William will be able to reason logically retain information better than the average person.

April 26, 2009, 7:03 pm - [20]

Since he can't move, William wouldn't be able to read by himself.

April 26, 2009, 7:08 pm - [21]

So another way my AI teddy bear can be programmed is through audiobooks.

April 26, 2009, 7:09 pm - [22]

Furthermore, I will teach William commonsense knowledge myself.

April 26, 2009, 7:16 pm - [23]

Just like a human, my AI teddy will be able to learn from his mistakes (such as errors in speech or incorrectly learned material).

April 26, 2009, 7:20 pm - [24]

Over time, his knowledge base will be broad enough for understanding complex scientific and philosophical theories.

April 26, 2009, 7:23 pm - [25]

He will be able to assist me in seeing and interpreting trends in data from my research.

April 26, 2009, 7:25 pm - [26]

I could also use William's help in staying organized. He can keep track of important deadlines and remind me of them.

April 26, 2009, 7:28 pm - [27]

William's brain will be connected to the Internet so that he also will be able help me with writing and responding to e-mails.

April 26, 2009, 7:30 pm - [28]

He will simply announce any new e-mails that I receive and ask my opinion about what to do with them - respond or delete.

April 26, 2009, 7:31 pm - [29]

Furthermore, William will also function as a teacher or a tutor for me.

April 26, 2009, 7:35 pm - [30]

Since he couldn't take exams for me, William will help me review important concepts related to the subject and then verbally quiz me.

April 26, 2009, 7:38 pm - [31]

William can also help me become rich. I will use his analytic abilities to make smart investments in the stock market.

April 26, 2009, 7:40 pm - [32]

On a more personal level, he will also give me good advice and help me deal with my problems.

April 26, 2009, 7:43 pm - [33]

I will discuss various issues with him and he will help me make the most logical decision with the best consequences.

April 26, 2009, 7:45 pm - [34]

These are just some examples of how an AI agent can be integrated into my life.

April 26, 2009, 7:53 pm - [35]

With all of these, I believe that caution should be excised to make sure that we do not give the AI robots too much control.

April 26, 2009, 7:56 pm - [36]

Although boring, daily tasks are part of our existence and if we let someone else do them for us, we cease being in charge of our own lives.
