Philosophy

What I did on my weekend

Every so often I get asked to do something that’s not related to my employer, or is stuff that results from my activities for my employer. Frequently this is some form of informal consulting/discussion. There was the cloud expo presentation. I’ve been on a couple of “Customer Advisory Boards” because of my container opinions (I have opinions; sometimes people want to listen to them). This time I was asked to look at a mobile email configuration.

When does an AI become alive?

This blog post is gonna be a little different; it’s more philosophical than most of what I write. It rose out a question a friend asked: “When does a biological AI become life?” My friend asked me this because he felt that SciFi must have covered this topic, and I’ve read and watched more than my fair share :-) Remove the limitations Now, I found the restriction to “biological AI” is unnecessary limiting.
