I am not looking for proof of AI (too broad, I know) concepts trying to solve a specific business problem, instead for a proof (or dis-proof) or a model (or a source of the same) where a machine is capable of
- General thinking and decision making.
- Collecting data as it see fit (use any channel at their disposal).
- Communicate as it see fit (with whom, how, where and when).
- Develop and evolve an agenda.
Note - I wrote an article more than 5 years ago - why a software cannot be intelligent. Since then I have not read a convincing argument against it.
Intelligence is the ability to take a decision in the unseen, unfamiliar, and unvisited circumstances. So, my definition of Artificial intelligence is - a machine doing essentially the same (doing, not replicating or simulating).
I am looking for a proof or disproof that machine is capable of doing things (written above), not the following
Instances where machine as simulated a certain aspect or property of intelligence.
Machine replicating a certain human behavior to achieve a goal.
