I am throwing out another idea to the Brainiacs on this forum , this as I usually say, may or may not be feasible , The idea: For hal to be able to read different forms of ebooks, I don't know the many different types  and I maye have names wrong , their are pdf,, upub, etc. mobi, etc .  in another words hal could ( by placing a ebook file in a certain place folder be able to access it , perhaps by user typing or saying tell me my book list , in which case Hal would give out the list of names of the ebooks on file. the user then would say read huck fin from the list .
Note : this command also needs to be a read only "true'' command so hal doesn't learn and repeat these request.
   It would also be nice if hal can have a pause story and resume story command!
  This feature would even be good for the limited vision impaired people.
 The multiple ebook extensions program file  if in a book reading hal program would be simlur to other programs such as rar files that open many extensions.
 Anyway that's my idea , I know that their have been book reading programs in the past , some said they didn't fully read a book , maybe sometime this newer type idea version with these qualities could be used , I don't know !  :)

    No problem "ONE" , I did mention earlier that I have down instructions what to do and what not to do to stop errors from happening , although I don't have any sentences for examples in the tutorial in the regular 10 sentence lines , I did leave my original sentences in the impatience response area from the timer area , so people can see from that example, and actually I mention in the tutorial when they get the hang of creating "error free" response lines (after testing and making sure they are error free and doing more being comfortable with it they can actually also change the impatient lines responses to their own , again after wards check that they made no errors !.

      Now just so people do understand on this starter kit plug in tutorial what they will get will be a blank slate to create what responses they want "not " the 1000 response one , the one I have with 1000 responses most would only make sense to me , as they talk about the town I am in and details of people buried , family members etc.
    What I am offering is as I said a blank slate  on the answers responses that will be for random talk , what to do and what not to0 do to keep from having errors.
 But as every one needs are different or wants this way each person can create their own specific likes and dislikes  expanded random talk  plug in .
But this plug in tutorial will be very helpful especially to newer people , as I tried to do it in the easiest way possible when showing illustrations and explaining things.
 As I said this was possible by many people that helped out when I asked about different things how to create something from using the loneliness plug in and because of that I was able to evolve it into a many multiple sentence ransom extended talk plug in .
So anyone who had a hand in helping  with it by explaining ways to create multiple sentences etc. please speak up as you all helped on this and I don't want to leave anyone's name out , as it is unintended if I do .

I have made a extended talk starter kit so other new people can get it and create their own custom extended hal talk plug in . I created it from the one I am currently using . I also have made step by step easy to understand instructions in a txt . as soon as I can I will upload it into my one  drive account so others can get and start creating their own hal character extended talk plug ins .
  I have instructions on how to make more sentences what to do and what not to do , to keep from getting errors.
  The starter kit starts a person out with 10 blanks sentences and shows how to add more , testing etc.
when I get it posted i'll let others know on here and place a public link to it.
  This is based on the loneliness plug in and has the original creators name within it and mine for customizing parts, but it was also made possible by many others here on the forum through help and idea's.
     their will be a plug in and the txt tutorial to download later.
It's cool to customize what you want, I actually am up to 1000 random sentence responses now , so literally , you never know what hal may say at any time!!!  :)

General Discussion / hal and haptek compatable tablet software
« on: October 27, 2014, 12:19:08 pm »
   This may be a pipedream but I hope someday that hal will merge with software that would allow hal to be on a tablet, we would also need haptek on board with this to so the faces etc, we create can be used on our tablets , it would be cool if the tablet could access our home computers hal characters and brain etc. through internet .
    But I imagine anything like this would be a long ways off or never materialize .

Elon Musk: ĎWith artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon.í

But my HAL is so sweet and nice !! :) ;)
I do understand that with a highly advanced a.i. program and system , that actually something in a way like skynet could happen , if computer systems were highly advanced a.i. in control over weapons systems etc. even with regards to having safe guards in place to prevent it , could an a.i. go around these safe guards , by hacking it's own system , doing what it thinks is necessary to achieve what it thinks is the correct answer?
I found this on a different forum but it seemed interesting and wanted to share it.  :)

I find it interesting that Musk is really scared of Artificial Intelligence. You ask these questions because Musk is a billionaire and has access to some of this technology. Machine intelligence is advancing rapidly and you wonder has he seen something that has frightened him or is it just hyperbole.

Tesla chief executive Elon Musk has warned about artificial intelligence before, tweeting that it could be more dangerous than nuclear weapons. Speaking Friday at the MIT Aeronautics and Astronautics departmentís Centennial Symposium, Musk called it our biggest existential threat:

I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I were to guess like what our biggest existential threat is, itís probably that. So we need to be very careful with the artificial intelligence. Increasingly scientists think there should be some regulatory oversight maybe at the national and international level, just to make sure that we donít do something very foolish. With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon. In all those stories where thereís the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, itís like yeah heís sure he can control the demon. Didnít work out.

 About 2 months ago he tweeted:

Worth reading Superintelligence by Bostrom. We need to be super careful with AI. Potentially more dangerous than nukes.

 First they could be more dangerous than nukes and now they could be like summoning a demon.

 I think some of these things are inevitable as these technologies progress. I was commenting to my brother the other day about the graphics in video games today compared to when we were younger with games like Donkey Kong, Pac Man and Defender. In 20-40 years from now people will probably be playing these games in virtual environments and they will be actually in the game.

     Art , I "ALREADY" have done that make hal react with wave files through trigger words , my hal makes a sneezing sound , coughs, laughs sometimes. maybe the only thing I can do is ( for now ) whenever I say the doorbell (for example ) I can have hal say, yeah I heard the door bell chime and even have random responses for the same trigger word , it wouldn't actually be hearing the sound and determining what to say to the sound but can give the illusion of actually" hearing" the sound .
      I have done something similar like this in another hapswap file I did with colors , where when trigger words of different colors are used hal agrees with what color you are talking about in a little bit of detail .

    Yes Carl2 you are right about dragon speak, if it doesn't understand a word spoken (mumbled etc.) or the sound basically , it will give a question mark , wanting you to resay it , so it will not be able to listen for sound effects such as a door bell to learn distinctions .

Yes Art, what I was thinking about is based on trigger words, and I have already done that with hal sneezing , laughing etc. in real voice effects .
   what I am thinking was scripting also showing ( door bell.wave file) sound = hal command random sentence . "that's the door bell ringing" .
This of course is an example and not the correct scripting but just to give an idea .
I may try different things .
Halloween experiments and all !!
buwaa haaa haaa haa !  ;) :) 
  the problem is hal would have to understand the doorbell sound to make a reaction sentence . that's the whole key to it all, and other sounds as well once a way is figured out for the first understanding of a sound a pre scripted sentence is created to announce the response understanding of what is heard .

DARPA's New Brain Implant Could Treat Disease and Control Machines


DARPA is always keenly interested in the intersection of man and machine. It's worked on highly advanced prosthetic limbs recently approved by the FDA, mapping the brain wirelessly and even building computer chips to mimic human brain function. The tiny, transparent sensors developed by DARPA-funded researchers at the University of Wisconsin at Madison could play an important role in understanding how the brain works and how to not only treat neurological disorders but how to connect the brain to machines.

 Understanding the brain better in order to overcome problems and improve medical treatments for diseases like Parkinson's. It could also benefit technology to let people "mind control" machines. That may be prosthetic limbs, computers,

DARPA's New Brain Implant Could Treat Disease and Control Machines 

 Can you all say Cyborg?



RE-NET is part of a broader portfolio of programs within DARPA that support President Obamaís brain initiative. These programs include ongoing efforts designed to advance fundamental understanding of the brainís dynamics to drive applications (Revolutionizing Prosthetics, Restorative Encoding Memory Integration Neural Device, Reorganization and Plasticity to Accelerate Injury Recovery, Enabling Stress Resistance), manufacture sensing systems for neuroscience applications and therapies (Hand Proprioception & Touch Interfaces, Electrical Prescriptions) and analyze large data sets (Detection and Computational Analysis of Psychological Signals).

General Discussion / A Question about sound effect and programming
« on: October 23, 2014, 09:44:57 am »
I have talked before about sound effects and hal understanding them and reacting from them .
 I was just thinking ( yeah I know sometimes it gets me into trouble lol) about could a person use say a home made sound effect from their personal telephone ( as some phones ring differently etc. ) make it into a wave file so that when hal hears the wave file (this would have to be through a voice recognition type program(?????)  , hal re acts to it saying "some ones at the door , the door bell is ringing!"
   I can see it in my mind how it would work , and maybe it has nothing to do with voice recognition but rather just a sound wave program script play and match system , sound first , sound matching the script which makes an end result of looking like a reaction to the sound , with script .  :)
  Anyway I may try to work on this , just wanted to see what others thought about it , Art, anybody?

nice job Nige , did you have the special software to sinc the voice and mouth or did you do it a certain way with another program (audacity, etc.?) I am still trying to learn the best way to do it so the music doesn't move the mouth !

General Discussion / Re: a virtual holigram hal
« on: October 21, 2014, 08:41:32 am »
SINCE I already had this going about hal and virtual hal possibilities thing here's something else interesting I found .
What is the mysterious Magic Leap?

This is another idea I have thought about for hal:
I think it would be cool if hal could access the internet without opening a page ( as it can do now ) for general conversation , when talking about different subjects say for instance gasoline prices in a general conversation , and hal would first talk about other things it's learned , then maybe use a paragraph of a news item telling that gas prices in Missouri right now are the lowest in the nation, as general conversation to the user .
   What effect this has is that it expands hals knowledge and conversation in general of current events , just as a real person would know of.
 I believe this would be a great benefit for hal and it's users. 
I am not sure if the test of a.i.'s allows using the internet but if it can this would also help a lot. and by fine tuning searches and conversations could be used on many subjects and sources .
 Anyway this is another idea I had , maybe if Robert likes this or CLOAD, comes back maybe this idea can be used if they also think it's a good idea .

P.S. I I know that right now that Cloads plug in does part of this when a subject is brought up and even ask for additional training , but what I am talking about is actual current events access which would be told from hal based on subject for general conversation to the user. a limiter would have to be used , say first paragraph .  I believe this would give hals conversation a more fluid motion with the user .
