    I honestly thought for a second that Goat’s “snout” was a robot or something till I saw the second panel…

    There’s a difference between artificial and no intelligence. Unfortunately, they aren’t smart enough to understand the difference.

    A fiction I enjoyed called them “Artificial Stupids”. Seems about right to me. They’re anything but SMART, though they can seem pretty clever as long as you stay within their area of “expertise”.

    I don’t believe true artificial intelligence is possible. A computer simply cannot have a soul.

    I love how well this applies to goat, him representing people who ‘read’ books related to science to appear smart. You can’t really read a book about AI if you haven’t studied CS, furthermore you don’t need to. Since pig is usually the one who messes up meanings, I’m sure rat’s words were intentional, aimed at goat.

    Most politicians could use some A.I. as they don’t seem to have a lot of natural intelligence of their own.

    That’s also a definition and it’s sometimes also called “make believe” intelligence or BS……

    I once heard, long ago in a more politically incorrect era, “artificial intelligence” defined as a blonde who dyed his/or/her hair brunette.

    You’re confusing fantasy with intelligence. Even if a soul existed, how would correlate with intelligence. Intelligence is not restricted to humans. Many animals display critical thinking and problem solving skills, all signs of intelligence. Unlike a soul, which beyond faith alone, has not been proven to exist. Don’t confuse consciousness with soul.

    A computer is only as smart as the guy who writes its algorithms. It can learn (by memory) but not think.
