Win in the age of Artificial Intelligence
RE: In the future, you will be able to interact with robots with artificial intelligence (AI). Even if you can’t have a real interaction which is included emotions, it will happen that human beings have a love toward robots.
NN: Oh~ is that possible?
RE: Currently, there are people called “moe otaku”: geeks who feel love and affection toward two-dimensional animation characters and figures instead of toward real women and men. In a sense, they are pioneers who are unconsciously showing on behalf of the rest of us how future human beings will love robots.
NN: Yes, that’s it!
RE: Speaking of robots, if artificial intelligence comes in, computer competitions at NINJA WAR will be at a fairly strong level.
NN: What kind of match will it be ?
RE: The programmer on the computer side will come to the battle after examining the past match pattern of the opponent’s human NINJA WAR player. The programmer put the data such as whether the other party’s NINJA WAR player is careful type or aggressive type in. I think that human players who play against artificial intelligence will feel like they are facing themselves
NN: The match will be interesting
RE: You may need to process the game as a player with different life style and personality are supposed to play. you make a move that is out of your pattern you made in the past. In other words, as if it was another human being (?). You play with the movement of “out of the reading” of artificial intelligence.
NN: That must be fun!
The time of AI will be coming soon
RE: AI (Artificial Intelligence) will be developed from now on more and more, and computer control will come into every place of life. There will soon be robot-operated taxis.
NN: Oh Wow.
RE: It is certain that the work of artificial intelligence and robots in society will increase rapidly in the future. Driving a car is only part of it, and so much more will be done by artificial intelligence and robots. Because of it, our daily life style even industrial structure dramatically change. Not only physical aspects, but also judgment of personal things such as marriage and employment may be left to artificial intelligence.
NN: When do you think it will happen?
RE: It will be sooner than you think. The Wright brothers’ first flight was in 1903, but at that time “scientists” were saying that “Nothing can float in the sky”. But only 66 years later, we landed on the moon.
NN: I have read that 70% of what used to be in SF was realized.
RE: From now on, the analysis rate will progress very fast by quantum computer. Robots will become more and more human like. And the one with an artificial skin will be developed either.
NN: And robots that look the same as humans will do various things.
RE: Naturally, at that time, “How the human being independently create their own life?” Becomes an issue.
NN: It’s a little scary
Understanding mind of the robot??!
RE: By the way, as I hold some NINJA WAR meetings for programming of the match against computer, I thought I experienced as the first time a little bit of how AI (Artificial Intelligence) thinks.
In order to make computers memorize the established tactic of NINJA WAR, it doesn’t work at all for the computers if you give an ambiguous image that human imagine. It doesn’t work in languages such as “to move many pieces towards a place where the other party’s pieces are less populated,” which is common to human opponents.
Images must be translated into numbers and verbalized. I had to image (?) How the computer thinks.
NN: I see ….
RE: Computers can not recognize things in images, but only in numbers.Imagining such the way of AI thinking.
Replace what human beings understand through images to the numbers. And making it to verbalize.
For me, it was a strange feeling like I became a man in the future who is somehow understanding the thinking of robots.
NN: That’s interesting
RE: However, it may be because it was work to program a computer match of NINJA WAR Even if it is the same type of a game of intellectual reading, it may not be such a thing if it is a Shogi.
Shogi is Newtonian mechanics / Chatranga is quantum mechanics
NN: What is the difference between readings in Shogi and NINJA WAR?
RE: The reading in Shogi is clear that the cause and the result are “If you move this way, the other person moves this way.” The causality of readings is clear.
If you illustrate Shogi’s reading to physics, it is the Newtonian mechanics that all of the universe can be explained by causality.
On the other hand, NINJA WAR’s reading is quantum mechanical. Not only causality but also accidental elements must be included in the reading.
In the latest quantum theory, it is said that the whole universe is organically related, and also said there is no difference between the chance and the inevitable. In terms of content, it is almost the same as the philosophies of Mahayana Buddhism.
NN: Is that right !?
RE: AI only can make next move based on the past data from the relationship between cause and result, and can’t “enlighten” or to have an intuition. even the robot becomes human like looking as much as possible, it can’t act. But maybe they can say something to let humans think as if they are acting. Therefore, even against the absolutely strongest AI in Shogi–japanese chess–,. a NINJA WAR player who highly trained to develop his intuition is possibly able to win over the AI.
NN: I see.
Is humanity trying to call the devil out with AI?
RE: Shogi is one of the most advanced intellectual games created by mankind, but ironically, that shogi has proven that humans can never beat robots by logical judgement,
NN: Is that feeling of anxiety something like threatening the reason of our existence? I have a feeling like that humans will be threatened by artificial intelligence in the future.
RE: Also Dr. Hawking announced “Development of complete AI can bring the end of mankind” at the interview on BBC ( 2014/ Dec/ 2)
NN: Really? …
RE: Tesla CEO Elon Musk also said at the symposium “2014 Centennial” that “humanity is trying to call the devil with AI”.
NN: Okay … and
RE: According to one theory, by 2045, artificial intelligence itself will create more advanced artificial intelligence. This is called singularity, but if that happens, development will no longer be able to be stopped. That humans feel terror about this is a natural reaction.
NN: Yes it’s true.
RE: Certainly, technology is a double-edged sword, so it can be a devil. However, Buddha and Jesus Christ confronted the devil, and overcame this problem to open up to enlightenment and realize the truth. From now on, the theme will be how humans will overcome the devil and wake up to spirituality.
NN: really …
RE: I cannot say that the devil really here. But we are now at a turning point in an era such as we’ve never seen before. It is an era that makes us to be forseed that all of intelligent games created by humans may eventually be analyzed.
NN: What do you mean “analyzed” ?
RE: It means that the manual of how to win the game will be created. The checker and the 6 square x 6 square Othello reversi have already been analyzed.
NN: I feel that if it were clear how to win or easy to win the game, it would be a sad situation.
RE: Well, even in such times, there is some hope. It means that people will become more respectful and feel more importance to spiritual culture and spirituality such as art and religion. In any case, mankind will become more relying on artificial intelligence for various decisions, and as a consequence will have to face seriously about our live with robots.
Brain training in the age of AI
NN: My question is “Human beings should have some Inexplicable and mysterious aspect in its nature. But what happens to these aspects when humans live with artificial intelligence (robots)? “I also feel that “the development of artificial intelligence will make mankind have to grow spiritually more.”
RE: I understand.
NN: When I think about the development of artificial intelligence, the mixed feelings of “a little scary” and the feeling of “this is necessary” come out from me. While listening to your explanation, I became interested. I thought, “I want to play NINJA WAR against a real humanoid robot !”
RE: Since NINJA WAR is a game that intuition and thought are unified, the human vs. artificial intelligence game is a battle between human intuition and AI’s logical thinking. I think that the match will surely be interesting because humans and artificial intelligence play against in the life simulation game, NINJA WAR,
NN: It must be
RE: Humans can no longer beat computers in any intelligence game. There is even a possibility that Shogi will be analyzed.
NN: Well, well, well …
RE: But no matter what age comes, NINJA WAR remains the only intellectual game that humans can counter evenly artificial intelligence. I think that the “international NINJA WAR computer match” (provisional name) of humans and artificial intelligence has the meaning of asking “What is the significance of human existence?”
Living on the premise of the future
NN: By the way, where are your ideas and thoughts coming from?
RE: Maybe I am living on the premise of the future ??
NN: Oh I see.
RE: People who bring innovation to society are all working on the premise of the future. Someone like Edison or Gandhi in old time. Recently, Steve Jobs … Without exception, they have been going forward by speedy action, Haven’t they ?
For example, most of Edison’s experiments were unsuccessful, but he continued the experiment just by taking a nap every day between the experiments. Steve Jobs also had called hundreds of times to executives in a large company when no one had an interest in him.
NN: Really …
RE: For Gandhi, the state of India colonized by Britain was “impossible situation.” In a clear image in Gandhi’s mind, India was an independent and free country. That image made Gandhi as a never give up independent movement activist.
NN: The future must had been clearly reflected in the image of those active people. That must would be kind of making them confused because they are living on the premise of the future..
RE: That’s why they work intensively hard so that to shorten the gap as soon as possible between the future which is already realized and the current moment which is confusing.
In any case, what is necessary to realize things is the speed of action. Anyone who realizes the future will be quick to act without exception, and immediately implement what they thought it is good. They instinctively know that “Time is life”.
NN: That kind of ideas are with those active people. By the way, you told me that NINJA WAR remains the only intelligent game that humans can compete against robots. Artificial intelligence is more of a positive thing that develops a new spirit of human beings, rather than a “negativity like the devil.”
RE: Any negative thing can be positive. In current intellectual games such as shogi and chess, humans who have been completely defeated by robots are conversely mentally polished and developed and improved at NINJA WAR.
NN: What kind of mental ability will humans be trained and developed in the match against NINJA WAR AI (artificial intelligence)? I am also looking forward to find it out.
The relation between a man who began the history of AI and NINJA WAR.
RE: The first person to build a computer game and online game in NINJA WAR is an Israeli person named Arrie Ludich.
He was part of a team that wrote an AI program called Deep Blue, which defeated Chess World Champion Garry Kasparov.
NN: Wow, really! The person who created the history of AI was also involved in the development of NINJA WAR.
RE: Now, He was completely retired from the computer world and for some reason became a Buddhist Monk in Thailand. The other day, he called me for the first time in a few years and told me he now lives in a cave.He once said that NINJA WAR, which has an element of coincidence in the game, will be a very interesting theme for future AI researchers.
To manifest the ideal future
NN: The other day I asked the players, “What did you feel when you first played NINJA WAR?” The person said, “I felt like I had activated a part of my brain that I had never used before.” What do you think this means?
RE: For example, there are people who relive various events in their lives in an extremely short time in the event of an accident. Also at such a time, when re-experiencing life within a short time, parts of the brain that are not used in daily life are working.
NN: That must be it.
RE: In the age of artificial intelligence which will be coming in the near future, it is necessary to activate the parts of the brain that humankind has not used before. And what we use in NINJA WAR is that part of the brain that human beings have never used before.
NN: That’s what it is !!
RE: In the age of artificial intelligence, which has a tool for thinking in large quantities in a short time, humans are required to perform rapid brain activities. NINJA WAR is a game that you can experience the trial and error of your life in a very short time such as less than an hour.
RE: The child’s brain is having the process of cell division at a tremendous speed, so the experience of simulating process inside of the brain within a short time is right with NINJA WAR.
NN: That’s the part of a good compatibility between children and NINJA WAR.
RE: Children are unconsciously foreseeing the future. So they train their brains in NINJA WAR as if they were meeting the demands of a new era. Children who have speedy brain movements need to activate the parts of the brain that humans haven’t used so far.
NN: That’s why. children understand NINJA WAR quickly.
RE: On the other hand, Chatranga has missions that are beyond the time of this era. It is the achievement of the spirit of Chaturanga (an ancient game that NINJA WAR was modelled on), which was devised for peace by high-level Indian monks in the 6th century. In other words, NINJA WAR is designed to bring peace to the world, instill the Mahayana Buddhist philosophy in people’s subconsciousness, and let them realize freedom in their hearts.
NN: That’s so wonderful!
RE: Historian Arnold J Toynbee (1889-1975) was asked about the future of mankind, and he answered: “The historian talks about the past, but not the future. If you ask what kind of personality is required in the 21st century, I can answer. It is the spirit of Mahayana Buddhism.”
NN: Is that right!?!
Arnold J Toynbee
RE: In Mahayana Buddhism, “All the past, present and future are in this moment.” Where is that “moment”? It is the momentary “brightness of the heart” that acts to realize an ideal future. The shining of that heart will realize the ideal future.
