Wacky AI Coincidences

So this last weekend, I had just finished reading Jeff Hawkins’ great little tome, “On Intelligence” in which he lays out a hypothesis for how the human neocortex works and then goes on to discuss how we could build intelligent machines based on the model he presents. Then, of course, the rat-brain flying the plane shows up. And NOW, I just found a trailer for a movie called Stealth, starring Jamie Foxx that features — you guessed it — an intelligent stealth bomber that gets shocked by lightning (number-5 alive!) and turns EVIL and must be stopped. I feel like I’m on some kind of bizarre carousel this week.

[ Incidentally, anyone remember my little article about artists being prescient? Well, there ya go. ]
