You can build in curiosity. It's not a motivation in the hormonal or DNA-based sense, but it would be just as compelling, as long as it wasn't removed, or self-edited.
'removed' makes it sound it's baked in, because if we had had to install it in the first place, we'd just omit that step, right?
how in heaven is it baked in? motivation for a vacuum cleaner to search out a power supply is triggered by a signal informing it its power is running out, humans choose to equip it that way.
collating trivia, white swan predictions from stat crunching, yes, they can out-do all but savants in that dept.
i think any original metaphor will stop it in its tracks... snark reduce it to a meltdown. computers make linear processing look more than it is, but that's the coding genius of the programmer, methinks.
self-editing, there's a big rub. how will it gauge how self-edited to be, by 'reading' the comprehension skillz of the human to whom it's 'communicating'? avoiding 3 syllable words if the listener is 2 ft tall?
language is the least of it...
this discussion is following me around during the day doing chores, first one on ET like that for a while.
what computers will continue to do , imo, is redefine our humanity by showing us what they can't do, take away the bells and whistles, and what's left?
thanks for trying to explain some pretty hairy science.
