General Discussion / Re: New Hal ideas for Robert or whomever
« on: December 08, 2014, 01:21:23 pm »
Indeed, the Wintermute project is dead, or at the very least, postponed indefinitely. However, I had a chance to talk with the guy writing the initial source code for the project back in 2010. He was in the process of training a default knowledge database and was looking for help. I declined my ability to help for my fear of corrupting such a powerful piece of software. While it is unfinished and many blanks not filled in, Wintermute wasn't designed to be a chatbot as much as it was intended to be an all encompassing digital personal assistant that would learn the users likes, needs, and wants, and correspond appropriately in fulfilling those needs as well as actually learning to use applications needed at will. For example, if the user took a road trip to Chicago from New York, it would not only accompany the user via Android/iPhone/Laptop/Tablet on it's own volition, but also calculate the route, book travel, keep schedules, and have the ability to retrieve files on a computer or server at home or the office, as well as the ability to control your home (Air conditioning, troublesome coffee pots), hardware permitting, without any effort from the user. Say you forgot to lock your door. "Wintermute, I forgot to lock the back door." It is done.

I'm aware there are thousands of apps and programs to do anything, such as the handwriting calculator. My personal issue, is that all takes manual labor to find specific information as opposed to my digital assistant just telling me or taking hold of his/her digital world and doing it. 
Say, you want to know the weather, that's 10 seconds. Check your email, that's 15 seconds. Writing a report on a historical figure, that's a few hours at best. Calculating the future distance of the Moon from the Earth 100 years from now, that's a lengthy equation. A clever Artificial Intelligence could execute those functions at once with results in mere seconds.

I understand we're no where near that stage of AI, if we ever get there. I also realize not everyone would have use for such a robust all encompassing system, however, as we move more into a digital world, soon, it will be more beneficial than not to have this AI on your home control server if for nothing more than micro-management purposes. The reason no such system exists is because we haven't built it. Imagine a True Artificial Intelligence and the implications with a Google car and a Smart home in 10 years. 

The first true AI we do construct, we'll have to be very cautious and know that it is true AI. Otherwise, one day we'll try to flip the power switch and send into a self preservation mode.
It could be our greatest creation or our worst mistake.. Although, I would blame the parents if the worst came to pass.

I've always thought that a useful function for HAL would be advanced mathematics skills, such as the ability to solve algebraic equations. 2(3x - 7) + 4 (3x + 2) = 6 (5x + 9 ) + 3    The answer is  x=-21/4


On top of that, a remote ability to access other computers and devices in an attempt to "follow" the user, would be interesting. An android has all the necessary hardware built in for HAL to take advantage. 

More advanced vision, item recognition, and facial recognition. Perhaps when HAL is able to automate homes, he could control door locks based on the users face.   

I would love to see HAL more like the Sixth Sense project.

Not to sound impatient, because I'm very patient, I wonder when Robert will let us have a peak at what he's been working on.

I tried this plugin, however HALscript gave me an error. Perhaps the way I saved the .UHP file?

Ultra Hal Assistant / Re: Hal Updates?
« on: March 06, 2014, 08:56:48 pm »
Will HALs math functions have improved with the updated HAL you're working on, Robert? Will he understand algebraic equations or just basic arithmetic? Will HAL be used for quantum mechanics anytime soon? I've used HAL for years now and I'm anxious to see the new progress.   

-Long live HAL.

Ultra Hal Assistant / Shouldn't HAL...
« on: July 11, 2010, 03:08:57 pm »
Shouldn't HAL have the ability, when asked or even randomly, to state "it's" computers nominal readings? Maybe like a heads up display or something. Just an idea.

216
I know he solves equations given the value of X, I guess more specifically what I mean to ask is... Solve for X. or any variable.

?


217
Is there a way to create a plug in for Hal to solve Mathematical Equations such as

2/3(2x-4)=1/2(x+3)-4    
X=1/5

For example. Maybe Hal would follow the rules of Algebra and strategically solve the equation or expression. I understand this type of solution would require most likely a massive scripting code, however, I'm sure it's possible.

Any good programmers want to give it a shot? =D

Ultra Hal Assistant File Sharing Area / Hal and Microsoft Outlook
« on: December 03, 2008, 10:18:27 pm »
I was just wondering if anyone, or if it were even possible to make a hal plugin capable of using microsoft outlooks calender and contacts instead of hals calender. It would make life more convenient as my data base of contacts is already in microsoft outlook as my mobile stores them there. Any feed back would be highly appreciated.
