Caleb won a company contest
flown by helicopter to a lab in the middle of nowhere (mountains, forest).
He met the CEO Nathan.
who had built an AI robot.
computer-controlled lab/residence
Caleb was to perform a Turing Test on Ava, an AI.
Turing Test determines if an AI has consciousness.
Nate's test was "Can a robot pretend in order to fool a human?"
Ruse
Turing Test inside of a Turing Test.
Here's a robot. She looks like a robot. You KNOW she's a robot. Now convince yourself she's not a robot.
Chat bots are everywhere on the Internet.

She was a prisoner.
Ava was smarter than them all.
She reflected his questions back on him at appropriate times.
Company was like Google.
It new everyone's videos, audios, responses, likes, dislikes, etc.

Lee Wright	10:25 PM
Why did Nate do this test? He seemed to already know the answer. Who was he trying to convince?
Did Nathan have a drinking problem or was it all a trick?
Power cuts
mysterious at first
Don't trust Nathan!

He was infatuated, fasdincated, enthralled.
	
Vasanth Prabakar	10:28 PM
he fell in her trap

The floor is also underground.
	
Lee Wright	10:43 PM
He wanted to be "buddies", two guys drinking beers.
Post-it notes for brainstorming?
Agile technique
tens not hundreds of notes is more normal
art
if you have a reason to start, then you can't start.
strokes of the brush
	
Vasanth Prabakar	10:50 PM
At this scene, caleb was complaining about the test. It is like playing chess with computer.
	
me	10:50 PM
intuition
	
Lee Wright	10:51 PM
Chaotic approach is better than a logical approach.
Monte Carlo math?
area of a circle
fracture mechanics
calculus, integral smaller pieces
integration of infinitely small areas gets more and more accurate
intuition is the subtle integration of many small indications
punching bag

Lee Wright	10:55 PM
This scene showed me that Nathan cared nothing about exploiting his robots.
Dreams are weird sometimes.
Why make a robot that can dance?
AI hasn't reached our level yet.
humanity towards a self-conscious AI?

Moral: If a robot can be devious, then it passes the Turing Test.
3 rules of robotics
You cannot harm MEj!
