This gives a consciousness value to that bee, but also insects, fish and any other organism that contains a brain. This theory also does not discriminate between organic brains, like those found in a skull of a human, and the transistors, memory units and CPUs that comprise modern Personal Computers. While obviously you are not going to consider your iPad as being conscious in any traditional sense, it also does not have a null value for Φ according to the ITT. 49 CH 40: Auto-Didactic Ivy Leaguer The Internet is obviously a revolution of information, and is fundamentally altering the way we receive, create, understand, purchase, trade, interpret, collect, and enjoy information.

However, it is a reasonable assumption that over time, whether it is minutes from now or decades from now, the software underlying certain Artificial Intelligence will have in its code the recursive ability to improve on its own code. I. will actually be able to rapidly improve on itself. I. could very quickly develop the ability to more efficiently and effectively identify and solve problems than humans do. I. could be more effective than humans and since we can't predict outside of our own capabilities, we would have no idea what such a future would look like, hence the term singularity.

Challenge Twenty Three is to determine the fundamental Laws of Biology, something that would likely involve determining the mathematics for other challenges first, like Challenge One. Based on these challenges and its illustrious track record, I surmise it a safe bet that DARPA will continue to be at the forefront of progress and mathematics in the 21st century. I.
