Martin Spano is the author of Artificial Intelligence in a Nutshell, a book that explores the mystified subject of artificial intelligence (AI) with simple, non-technical language. Spano’s passion for AI began after he watched 2001: A Space Odyssey, but he insists this ever-changing technology is not just a subject for sci-fi novels and movies; artificial intelligence is present in our everyday lives.
The story of Yan Yan
Yan Yan was a skillful engineer. He succeeded in creating an artificial being and presented it proudly to his master. The master was amazed. The creature was moving gracefully like a real human. It could sing beautifully and dance graciously. However, after a while, the artificial being started to flirt with ladies accompanying the master at the performance. This highly displeased the master. Yan, fearing the master's rage, showed the creation's internals to prove to his master that it was indeed only an artificial being that could be turned off. Then the master began dismantling the being piece by piece. He was astonished to see how it lost its ability to move, speak and see by removing its internal parts.
