    That depends on which movies you're referring to. If you're thinking of Her, that would be something like Nathan's project, with advanced cognitive abilities. If you've seen Transcendence, that would take things up a notch. Their version of AI has access to very powerful hardware. This gives it control over a wide array of devices which affect our lives more or less. The movie's plot touches on some interesting philosophical and technological issues, namely mind uploading and the technological singularity, which is defined on Wikipedia as such: "a hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence, human biological enhancement, or brain-computer interfaces will have progressed to the point of a greater-than-human intelligence, radically changing civilization, and perhaps human nature."

    I am a total newbie in what concerns artificial intelligence, but it's something that interests me a lot. I am going to print this article you post for detailed reading, thanks for sharing! I don't know up to what point there is a connection between AI and the stuff we see in the movies regarding the machines taking over...

    Is anyone here into Machile Learning or Artificial Intelligence? I'd be curious about what you're working on and what methods and tools you use (simulation software, libraries, programming languages etc.).
    Personally, I'm doing research into modelling and simulation of gene regulation networks (GRNs). I'm basically trying to infer the topology of a graph of genes from dynamic (temporal) gene expression data. The GRN models consist of ODE systems where each equation depicts the gene expression kinetics of a particular gene, dependig on the influences from other genes. I use a natural computing algorithm called Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) to infer the parameters of these models.
    I created my own tool from scratch using Java, despite the fact that it's intended to be executed on HPC clusters and grids. Computation speeds are quite good, especially due to parallelization -- I'm using a multi-swarm variant of PSO, where each swarm is simulated independently and the local optima are synchronized every 100ish iterations.
