HUMAN SWARMING is a new form of A.I. that uses human input in real-time to create an emergent intelligence...

Check out a SWARM INTELLIGENCE answering the age-old question - "STAR WARS or STAR TREK?"


The video is only 15 seconds, but it's way cool.

Interesting process, but it implies that the majority are correct and the minority are wrong.  Which seems rather counterproductive for such a subjective topic, where the question is a matter of personal opinion.

Also, a sample size of 9 people seems rather small to be called a "swarm".  

So I would be curious to see this experiment performed on different types of questions, and I would like to see how the behaviour evolves with a larger group of participants!  :D

SFG  :harper:

Pete Seeger's life was a picture of an idea in flight, and the idea will continue long after.  As long as there are people with goodness and courage in their hearts, the idea will continue forever.

The problem is the question itself... along with the answers.  It asks "classic" scifi movies... TERMINATOR and MATRIX are hardly classic, if the definition of that would be older.  Given TERMINATOR started over 30 years ago, I guess that could qualify, but THE MATRIX certainly doesn't.  And I wouldn't count DOCTOR WHO, as the two movies were basically film versions of two seperate stories.  They are not even considered canon.

The whole thing is a loaded question.

Also, it came up with the wrong answer.  :lol:

I'm not sure what this is supposed to prove.  It looks like simply a poll.

Seems about right for Klingons, though.
