A Theological Objection to Artificial Intelligence

Theological Objection?

Many religous leaders or persons of faith will argue that the study of artificial intelligence is in direct contrast to God’s will.  I belive this view comes from a misconception and/or lack of education in the arena of information systems. That being said, the very same leaders that argue against the use of artificial intelligence, also depend on technology in every aspect of their day to day life.

Any reference to the term “artificial intelligence” is responded with images from movies like “The Terminator” ...

Hypothesis – Artificial Intelligence & Artificial Life

The purpose of this post is to document my research in the comprehension of artificial intelligence and the simulation/creation of an artificial life form.

Artificial Intelligence – Research Question and Hypothesis

Topic: Artificial Intelligence

Narrowed Topic: Artificially intelligent algorithms and artificial life.

Issue: Advancing and improving artificial intelligence for the purpose of creating artificial life forms, and/or artificial life simulations.

Research Questions: Of the existing types of artificially intelligent algorithms, which has the greatest potential to improve and/or expand our current capabilities in the use ...

Artificial Life – Simple Animation

One of the base things I must accomplish in the creation of a software program that emmulates the evolution and survival of life is a simplistic method of animating graphical objects. The graphics will be able to “see” and therefore will sense when they come in close contact with other objects. After a bit of research and development, I found an existing program, written in Java, that does just this.

The artificial life simulation will take into account the cycle of ...

Artificial Life – Simple Math

The following code transforms the struggle for survival into a mathematical equation. A user is asked to enter a number of carnivores to create between 1 – 100. Once the number has been decided, the plants, herbivores and carnivores reproduce contingent on a specific ratio between plants:herbivores:carnivores or 16:6:2.

The program takes 3 separate life forms plants, herbivores and carnivores and increases or decreases their reproduction rate depedent on their ratio in comparison to the other life forms. A ratio of ...

Artificial Life Simulation

I have many software projects that I have been working on. One of my favorites is an Artificial Life Simulation. I will be using the blog portion of to keep a running record of my work. The Artificial Life Simulation is being developed in Java.

Artificial Life Simulation Overview

Create a simulation that emulates life and evolution.
The simulation is governed by the same rules that govern our world. Graphic
objects in simulation represent life forms and environmental objects. Life
forms ...

Artificial Intelligence: Our Need to Understand

As an undergraduate majoring in computer science at Mountain State
University, I understand that artificial intelligence has been depicted in many
science fiction venues; although, artificial intelligence it is not just an
element of science fiction. It is important to understand that artificial
intelligence is a legitimate field of study within the field of computer
