What is Intelligence?

Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences

There are many types of intelligences. Some that are listed in his book are Visual-Spatial, Bodily-kinesthetic, Musical, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Linguistic, and Logical-Mathematical.

Alan Turing

Alan Turing was born on June 23, 1912 and died at the age 41 on June 7, 1954. Turing was known for decrypting German codes during World War II with an Enigma.

This is a picture of a enigma that they probably used during World War II.

He was also known for the Turing Machine and the Turing Test. He was also a computer scientist. He was prosecuted for homosexual activity because it was against the law at the time.
They gave him hormones that affected his body. He died from suicide on June 7, 1954.


Some examples of movies with Artificial Intelligence are A.I. Artificial Intelligence, WarGames, I, Robot, and The Matrix.

For the movie, we decided to watch a documentary name Smartest Machine in the World on Thursday, January 29.

The robot's name is Watson.

What I thought was interesting the movie was that Watson could take the answers of the questions its opponents got correct and memorize them and apply those answers with other questions.
Watson auditioned to go on Jeopardy, but Watson still had bugs. A few years laters, the producers of the show came back and watched Watson breeze through the questions.
On the actual game show, Watson won against the two best Jeopardy players.

Chat Bots

On Wednesday, January 28, we talked to chat bots. The website I went to was cleverbot. Here's a picture of our conversation.

Cleverbot says that its name is Cleverbot and that it lives in Denver, Colorado.

We also got to make our own chat bots. This is my code and the module for the code.

Here's another code I made for another conversation!

On Thursday, January 29, we made the chat bot look for words in the string. This is the code I put and the outcome.

Here's a conversation that I had with the chatbot I made.

Rock, Paper, Scissors

On March 23, 2015, we started off the week by making rock, paper, scissors on Python.
This is the first version's code.

This is the code in the shell.

This is the second version of the code.

One thing that went wrong was when I made the replay code. How I fixed it was I was missing a parentheses after the "y/n".

Here is the code working in the shell.

Number Guessing Game

On March 24, we made a number guessing game!

I made two versions of the game. One of the games have functions and the other does not.

Here is the one with functions:

Each function does a different thing. For example, the function "greet()" greets the player by saying "Let's play the number guessing game!", while the "compareChoices()" function compares the computer's number and the number the human chose.

One thing that went wrong was the number would keep saying it was lower.
The list was an integer, but the human was not an integer.

Here is the one without functions:


On March 25, 2015, we made our own Hangman on Python.

Here is the pictures for the Hangman Game.

The pictures above are the drawings I made for the Hangman Board.

The picture above is my greeting, I use it to start the game. I also use it to greet players.

The picture above is my whole hangman game. The "random.choice(words)" makes the computer choose a random word from the list "words".

This is the code in the shell.

On March 26, 2015, we attempted to recreate Tic-Tac-Toe.
On the same day, I learned how to import lists from the internet.

I also learned how to do a drawboard from Al Sweigart. This is his code.

For the Tic-Tac-Toe, it was confusing for me to do it, but I tried to do it. This is what I have.

I wanted to add many versions of the board, but I didn't know how to replace each number such as 1, 2, or 3 to a letter like "O" or "X".
Instead I had to draw out the outcome, but I only made one outcome.

The Code.

The Code in the Shell.

On the last day of Artificial Intelligence, March 27, 2015, we polished our web pages.
After completing out web pages, we watched WarGames and I, Robot.
