    Google must have had their fingers crossed, they promised not to ready your emails but are letting other read them. Makes me wonder if the data mined from the emails are being shared with google.



    Third-party app developers could be reading your Gmail

    This is a necessary evil if we ever want AI.

    but is it necessary? would it not be better to create a fake email account full of fake emails in order to train the AI?

    naw, it is no different what the humans learn at school through samples and word problems.

    Memorization doesn't teach reasoning skills. If you teach someone that 6 and 6 is twelve. He knows that. But, he doesn't know it is a dozen. Or a 1/12 of a gross. Little more complex than that but you should grasp the gist of it.

    The main idea behind AI is to have a analytical approach derived from absolute facts and reasoning. Take for instance the tic tac toe computer game. The only loss is incurred when a mistake is made. But if ennui sets in I just might throw the game to do something else. In my mind I didn't lose. Does the computer sense that, no, it senses that an idiot just walked up and started a new game.

    By reading 100,000 emails a day is probably a better cross section of data than 100 people writing random emails. Don't get me wrong, there is absolutely no justification for this activity, none.

    but what is machine learning? is it not the same as as memorization? is it not a mess of if/then statements? as far as the tic tac toe example, who is to say a machine cannot sense emotions and eventually lose based on its programing. for example, I posted a thread a while back where in China a school has a program that senses the students emotions and report it to the teacher, who is to say the program cannot have an if/then that says if the emotion is this, then the computer will run something to help improve it even if it means losing.

    but you are right, it is easier and faster to use real emails for teaching. it is like having book sense vs having real sense.
