This week the Kansas State school board ruled that CSAIL must revert to
LCS and all work on Artificial Intelligence be halted immediately.
Kansas School board members have declared that Artificial Intelligence
challenges creationist theories of the origin of life which, by popular
agreement, must be true.
The influential, Intelligent Design Network, has remained neutral on the
ruling due to the paradox of a successful AI project proving them both
correct, that life is the result of intelligent design, and proving them
wrong by the fact that God(*) was not enrolled in the AI lab and thus
was not the designer (unless God does in fact enroll, in which case all
bets are off). (http://www.intelligentdesignnetwork.org/)
In a shocking turn of events, researchers from the former AI lab have
come forward to announce that they will in fact cease and desist in
their research. An anonymous graduate student reported, "This incident
in Kansas has shown us that real intelligence is so screwed up that we
could never hope to model and emulate it with anything artificial, I
think we should all just be realistic and throw in the towel."
(*) In keeping with GSB policy, for being mentioned by name, God is
eligible for a free beverage this evening. Show up to find out is she
will claim a root beer or something stronger?
