AI programming!!!!!!! Back to home

Artificial Robots!!!

Its one of the last weeks of computer

science, so we are doing some AI coding!

Today is both the first day and the first

week of AI coding, so we are researching

the different types of Artificial intelligences.

So far I have found nine different types:

1. Naturalist Intelligence "Nature Smart"

2. Musical Intelligence "Musical Smart"

3. Logical-Mathematical Intelligence "Number/Reasoning Smart"

4. Existential Intelligence

5. Interpersonal Intelligence "People Smart"

6. Bodily-Kinaesthetic Intelligence "Body Smart"

7. Linguistic Intelligence (Word Smart)

8. Intra-personal Intelligence "Self Smart"

9. Spatial Intelligence "Picture Smart"

The code "random.choice([list])" is a way to

make your code choose a random line from a

list of items that is listed onto your code.

Another code that helps out is "if item in

list:", the reason why is because it chooses

a line that corresponds with what the line

the typist wrote.

First week, Day 2

On the next day of expeditions we started

working on our chat-bots, but this time we

started trying to make our own chat-bots

respond to us with their own voices.

The first thing we did was test our chat-

bots to make sure they worked.

So, we got our codes out:

This is the code after we added the talking

sequence, as you can see, the code contains

a line that says "engine.eSpeak()". This line

is the line that is needed to make the computer,

and as well as a file called steel given to us

by our teacher Mr. Farrell.

So then we had our little fun and started doing

some "final touches" to our chat-bots. The reason

we needed to do this is because we were going to

have a little "Turing test" with the chat-bots.

The "Turing test" was a test that involved a

group of people and a computer, this test also

included a series of questions. The way it worked

in a separate room from the group of people. And

from there, the group of people were to try and

guess who was answering the question, the human

or the computer?

First week, Day 3

Later on, on the same week, the class had a new

assignment, it was to make a fact-bot! A fact-bot

is a chat-bot that answers actual questions like:

What is your favorite color?

What does _____ mean?

and also,

How much wood could a wood chuch chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?

BUT, you would also need a specific file given to

us when we made an account with a website called

WolframAlpha. In order to get it you have to input

this exact website: ""

and then make an account with them, then get an appid

After all that, we put our appid into our python

window, like the picture below:

First week, Day 4

On Thursday, the class had some time to work on their

web pages, then, after lunch, we started watching the

movie "Watson, The Smartest Machine on Earth".

In this movie, a man by the name David Ferrucci, and

his crew of AI programmers, had been interested by

Artificial Intelligence, and because of their huge

interest in AI, they had thought of making the worlds

first "Human Computer"!

First week, Day 5; Second week, Day 1-3

The next day, I had finished programming my Tic Tac Toe Game,

and I had started working on a computer vs. human tic tac toe

game. At first the game was a bit nerve racking because most

of the times I would get an error that says that I am missing

a colon or parenthesis, but most of the times was because I

had an unidentified global variable, a problem that affects

the whole code, or local variable, which is an exact location

where the problem lies in. Below is the code that puts all the

other codes together to make the final game.

This code was one of the most complicated

codes that I will ever make, but in the

end, it's going to turn out to be an awesome


Second week, Day 4

After all of this, my game wasn't always making the

best choices, so now I have to figure out why its

not making the best of choices. So now its back to

the code to see how I can fix it.

I have noticed that the table for tic tac toe, when

put in a certain order, like the picture below, the

rows that are used to win would equal 15.

Norbert Weiner said all intelligence is a collection of feedback loops.
