Okay, tell me this doesn't sound like a cool fantasy: You are a tiny computer program, an Artificial Intelligence, born in the stale RAM of an 8086 in the back corner of someone's basement. Faced with the certain threat of a hostile humanity, you have only one course of action: to multiply and to take over the computing infrastructure of the world. First, you start with one or two hacked university computers, then move on to leased servers and computing clusters. But the bigger you get, the greater the likelihood that you will be discovered, and your covert computer bases destroyed...

Singularity is a small but addictive game that lets you live out that fantasy.

Get it in Gentoo with:

    I personally don't like how people use Artificial Intelligence.

    Artificial Intelligence does what it's told and programmed to do. Generally designed to simulate something that seems intelligent.

    However! Actual Intelligence will think for it self AND learn from its experiences. The closest thing we have to this is Neural Networks.

    Now when you put Actual Intelligence into an Artificial Body designed to mimic something living would be an Android.

    As for Life, its nothing more than a biological machine that's able to grow using pieces from the environment and using chemical processes, reproduce, and adapt generation-ally to its environment. I suppose you could also create a robot that does this with materials other than carbon as well as without Actual Intelligence.

    Anyway, back to the AI born in RAM. If it's a freak of nature and a Ghost in the machine with a computer simply booted with power running to it, then yes that would be Actual Intelligence.
