I’ve been researching the science behind DNA and it’s ability to read stored organized and structured instructions/information and then for specifically designed processes in our bodies to create millions of components , with specific functions capability of specific further processes, specifically designed processes and the highly precise capability required to assemble a human based on those instructions(data) and processes.
It does not seem logical to me that people, especially people in IT and with a programing and data/information background would believe that something as complex as processes that exist to create ourselves were somehow created by accident, or randomly. That’s actually like telling a client or business managers, leaders that we don’t need to modify the software, that the software will be able to fix itself.
And by that I mean I know full well that we’re capable of DESIGNING software they can handle situations that we pre-designed it for , however to create software that will create as well modify itself or create output different than the original design we would call it artificially INTELLIGENT. There is no example, that I know of where we will realistically tell the client that we’ve created a program , say for a 3-D printer that will take in certain data and then if they wait long enough, It will by accident or randomly improve itself and more importantly create a whole new object completely different than what it was designed to do
This is an excellent post that explains the details behind this concept.
