Dhw: (To Tony): You and David are happy to describe computerized learning as Artificial Intelligence, but when the procedures are carried out by a living organism with a live memory, ability to perceive, process and communicate data, make decisions, pass data across generations, suddenly these attributes no longer signify intelligence!

DHW: I am disappointed that neither of you has responded to this.

I did not coin the phrase 'Artificial Intelligence' and have repeatedly stated a need to distinguish between different levels of intelligence/consciousness. Also, see the link where major responses by hundreds of cells are controlled by two neurons. No intelligence, simple guided automatons.

What the neurons are doing, in computer terms, is synonymous with calling a function( a pre-programmed bit of code that only runs when called by a different program).

What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
