A potential market for AI in Second Life?
Researchers at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have created at 4-year-old boy, Eddie, within Second Life. Eddie runs around and “has beliefs,” according to researchers.
As Eddie operates entirely on formal logic and well-defined theorems, reasoning is not automatically fast, Bringsjord said, explaining the need for clever engineering and high-performance hardware.
They’re planning on using Eddie’s brain in other applications including training simulations using thinking actors.
