Progress towards true and complete Artificial Intelligence continues with the announcement of VIV, a new Personal Assistant similar to Apple’s Siri.
Two major points towards development are:
- “A marketplace of developer-created, cloud-based, subject-matter ‘modules’ shown floating in a 3-D space” which visualizes an artificial brain for VIV, and
- A self-writing, executable/programming system which appears to respond to a user’s verbal intent to write a program in ~10 nanoseconds.
VIV appears to automatically utilize the resources of its containment (hardware/software) to fulfill the intent of its user. If paired with a next-generation search to provide an extensive database of subject-matter ‘modules’, VIV could be the closest thing we have to AI to-date. VIV just needs to learn and to be used.
