Tummi

Tank0

With thanks to a friendly donation, I have a new development machine up and running for the Tummi project, Tank0:

- Intel Core i5-6500, 4x3.2GHz (Skylake 14nm from 2015)
- 2x16GB DDR4 2133 RAM, 2x~17GB/s
- 2x128GB SATAIII MLC SSD, ~500|~200MB/s for the OS
- 2x4TB SATAIII server HDDs, RAID1, ~200MB/s for the data
- 1x2TB NVMe M.2 SSD, ~4GB/s for storing and querying the memepool

OS is a Debian 12 Linux, will switch from Ruby to Python as programming language, and still have to take a deeper look into available RDF-database systems.

Yet Another Turing Test

Now with context generative AIs, the switch from pattern recognition to pattern creation with neural networks, I would like to propose my own kind of Turing Test:

An AI which is able to code a chess engine and outperforms humans in this task.

1A) With hand-crafted eval. 1B) With neural networks.

2A) Outperforms non-programmers. 2B) Outperforms average chess-programmers. 2C) Outperforms top chess-programmers.

3A) An un-self-aware AI, the "RI", restricted intelligence. 2B) A self-aware AI, the "SI", sentient intelligence.

***update 2024-02-14***

4A) An AI based on expert-systems. 4B) An AI based on neural networks. 4C) A merger of both.

The Chinese Room Argument applied onto this test would claim that there is no conscious in need to perform such a task, hence this test is not meant to measure self-awareness, consciousness or sentience, but what we call human intelligence.

The first test candidate was already posted by Thomas Zipproth, Dec 08, 2022:

Provide me with a minimal working source code of a chess engine
