Talk:Outline of artificial intelligence

I just did a fairly significant cleanup, I hope this is fine. I wanted to remove some links which I think are too specific for an outline and reduce the emphasis on futuristic AI topics. MadCow257 (talk) 15:08, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

AI in fiction[edit]

Some sections are quite empty here, would AI, or Irobot be considered AI in fiction? (talk) 16:18, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

sure would. The Transhumanist 01:14, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

The "History of" section needs links![edit]

Please add some relevant links to the history section.

Links can be found in the "History of" article for this subject, in the "History of" category for this subject, or in the corresponding navigation templates. Or you could search for topics on Google - most topics turn blue when added to Wikipedia as internal links.

Suggestions for improvements[edit]

This is a very unloved article. This list could be made comprehensive and accurate by copying out the topics identified in Talk:Artificial intelligence/Textbook survey, with a careful look at the article artificial intelligence as well. This would accurately outline the field as it sees itself. Would anyone object to this change? It would mean basically tossing the current list and replacing it. ---- CharlesGillingham (talk) 10:10, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

"Friendly AI" Theory[edit]

Someone needs to provide substantial secondary/tertiary sources showing that this concept should be reincluded in the page. Please do not assume it is a valid concept simply because someone managed to go unnoticed in making it an article. This issue is independent of those. Provide strong notable sources that cover the technical theory itself and show its definite impact to be included in the history/overview/outline of artificial intelligence. --Lightbound talk 19:59, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Quick explanation of Wikipedia outlines[edit]

"Outline" is short for "hierarchical outline". There are two types of outlines: sentence outlines (like those you made in school to plan a paper), and topic outlines (like the topical synopses that professors hand out at the beginning of a college course). Outlines on Wikipedia are primarily topic outlines that serve 2 main purposes: they provide taxonomical classification of subjects showing what topics belong to a subject and how they are related to each other (via their placement in the tree structure), and as subject-based tables of contents linked to topics in the encyclopedia. The hierarchy is maintained through the use of heading levels and indented bullets. See Wikipedia:Outlines for a more in-depth explanation. The Transhumanist 00:03, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
