Late last year, the entire Internet was conquered by neural networks. Some users, with no drawing skills at all, made stunning pictures with the Midjourney neural network. Rytr wrote texts, and Prisma worked unbelievably with photographic portraits. Neural networks began to come up with logos, colorize black and white photos, voice pictures, and even create images of people who never existed.
What is a neural network? A neural network is a program that can learn itself by using lots of structured data. Some probably didn’t know that neural networks have been working among us for a long time. They are embedded in smart speakers, for example. Popular apps (such as Shazam and FaceApp) also use neural networks. Even this very text was written with this kind of help (the author dictated sentences and the neural network translated them into text format). Such technologies are used in many different fields, such as security, business, and high-tech. But just last year people began to actively use them for entertainment. So do we!
Today we are going to talk about a very interesting dialogue that happened between us and artificial intelligence. We used an application called Historical Figures Chat, which allows you to chat with famous people. AI lets us chat with countless historical figures – from Plato and Genghis Khan to Mahatma Gandhi and Michael Jackson.
We chose our favorite, Aristotle (recall: he was the greatest Greek philosopher who lived in the 4th century B.C.), and decided to have a little chat with him about games.
Aristotle: “Hello, I am an A.I. simulation of Aristotle. I may not be historically accurate, please verify factual information”
Solitaire Social: “Hi Ari! How are you?”
Aristotle: “I am doing well, thank you. How can I help you?”
Solitaire Social: “Do you like playing games?”
Aristotle: “Yes, I do enjoy playing games. In fact, Aristotle wrote about the value and play and recreation in work “Politics”, praising them for their ability to build character.”
Solitaire Social: “What is your favorite game?”
Aristotle: “My favorite game is a game of strategy called Taktika. It involves two players, each trying to out-maneuver the other by carefully positioning their pieces on the board.”
Solitaire Social: “Cool! Have you ever played solitaire?”
Aristotle: “No, I have never played solitaire.
However, I believe that playing games of any kind can help us to exercise our minds and develop our analytical skills.”
Solitaire Social: “That’s true! What else can help us to exercise mind and brain?”
Aristotle: “I believe that engaging in activities such as reading, writing, and discussing philosophy can also help to exercise our minds. Additionally, studying mathematics or playing musical instruments are great ways to challenge the mind and stimulate creativity.”
Solitaire Social: “Are there any tricks in mathematics that could help to win every game?”
Aristotle: “No, there are no shortcuts in mathematics. Instead, it is important to practice and understand the principles of mathematics so that you can apply them in any situation. Additionally, understanding other people’s perspectives and arguments helps to sharpen analytical skills.”
What do you think of this dialogue with Aristotle? Do you agree with the great Greek?
In any case, our wonderful conversationalist confirms what we always say: games are absolutely not a shameful activity. Game not only allows us to distract ourselves from the complexities of the big world, but also makes our brain develop!
And we are absolutely sure of one more thing: if Aristotle lived in 2023, he would definitely be into Solitaire Social!
Come and play, have a rest and develop your mental activity!
We look forward to seeing you on our site and wish you a great year 2023!
