When Micky-the-slanted-Salerno announced about the AI-Themed-Blogging, I admit that at first, I thought I was a very limited topic to write about. Some members thought limiting the topic to AI only is not a good idea. 

Here are some of the remarks and reactions from other users

 

  • Because every person does not know how to blog with AI
  • What is the sample of Al blogging? If it doesn't fit my forte, I'd rather focus on my own website.
  • Just when I'm thinking to write again about stuff, this came in. So I think I'll continue to become hiatus here.
  • So, how many blogs we can come up with on one theme? I do not think AI blogs will get too big traffic. So, no, to me it doesn't look a good idea.

 These are just a few of the reactions on that post about AI-themed blogging.  

Misconceptions About AI-Themed Blogging

Let me clear-up at least a couple of misconceptions. 

1. You need to use Querlo to create an AI-themed blog. 

Creating an AI-themed blog or Cblog does not mean you need to use Querlo Cblog. You can submit a regular blog dealing with Artificial Intelligence as a subject.

2.  AI-Themed Blog is a very limited topic

 I admit I thought at first that AI-Themed blog is very limited.

However, when I started writing my first cblog about Artificial Intelligence, different topics kept on popping on my mind. So, I tried to organize my thoughts by creating a mind map. Even before I could get half-way through my mind-map, it was clear to me now that there are a lot of things to blog about AI.

Some subtopics actually would intertwine with other topics, that made my mind-map quite complicated. Initially, I wanted to create a cblog out of my mind-map. However, my mind-map got too complicated for me to translate it into a c-blog.

 So to simplify it and to give ideas to the other bitlanders writers, I created a list of AI topics that you can write about. I divided these topics into two major categories.

 

  1. AI in Science Fiction (Movies and Other Media)
  2.  AI in the Real World

 

In this part, I will share with you some ideas about Fictional AIs that you can write about.

 AI in Science Fiction (Movies and Other Media)

I. Movies! 

Movies are loaded with fictional Artificial Intelligence ideas. You could write about the AI characters or how the AIs behave in those movies. To give you some ideas, here are some popular AI Titles and characters from different movies.

1. T800- From the Terminator Movies.

The T800 is the first robot that came thru the time-portal in order to kill Sarah Connor. The T800 is played by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

2. The Matrix Trilogy -

Starring Keanu Reeves who leads the battle against the army of AIs in a virtual reality world. There other notable AIs in that movie trilogy.

3. Ultron 

From the Avengers 2 Age of Ultron. Another AI-driven robot (played by James Spader) who thought he could conquer and rule the world with his droid armies.

4. J.A.R.V.I.S

From the Iron Man movies to Avenger movies. Tony Stark’s faithful AI assistant who became Vision in the Age of Ultron. Both J.A.R.V.I.S. and Vision are voiced and played by Paul Bethany.  

However, JARVIS is not Just A Rather Very Intelligent System, he was once a real person who used to serve Howard Stark and Tony Stark as well.

5.Bicentennial Man 

One of my favorite movies that starred the late comedian Robin Williams.  Not all AI-robots are bad. Williams plays the robot named “Andrew”. Andrew developed sentience and could ‘feel’ emotion. Let’s just say, before Querlo, he was the first (fictional) AI who had a heart.

There are still a lot more movie titles that have AI representation. Even one of the installment of the Fast and the Furious movies have shown the use of AIs. Do you know which one?

 

II. AI in TV Shows.

1. The Knight Rider

I have already posted about the Knight Rider. A talking and self-driving car. And did I say, crime-fighting? Read my c-blog: K.I.T.T. - The AI Powered Supercar of the Knight Rider.

2. Andromeda Ascendant.

Andromeda Ascendant is a fictional space ship the television series: Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda. In the future, Andromeda Ascendant is a System Commonwealth starship equipped with a powerful AI.

The ship's AI, named Andromeda / Rommie (played by Lexa Doig), appears to the crew in three forms.

  1. As a 2-D image on the monitor
  2.  As a 3-D hologram image
  3. As an Android avatar of the ship.         


3.The Star Trek: The Next Generation 

The Star Trek franchise rarely emphasize on AI technology.  However, part of the crew of the starship Enterprise in the Star Trek: The Next Generation (TNG) is an android. Do you know who he is?



III. AI in Comic Books.

You will find a lot of fictional AIs in comic books. In fact, some of them have already made their way on the big screen or on the TV shows. I have already mentioned Ultron and Vision for example. And here are a few more examples.

1.  The Eradicator

If you are a Superman fan then you are surely familiar with the Eradicator.  The Eradicator is an ancient Kryptonian weapon who later evolved into a sentient being. In the Death of Superman story arc,  the Eradicator became the protector of Superman.

IV. AI In Novels

Some of the best AI-themed sci-fi movies are based on novels. Here are some of the notable novels that says something about artificial intelligence.

1) Erewhon 

A novel about machines with human-like intelligence written by Samuel Butler. Do you know when this model was written? Surprisingly, this novel was written in 1972!

2) 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Before there was Siri there was HAL. At least in the 1968 novel written by Arthur C. Clarke.

3) I, Robot 

Isaac Asimov's I, Robot is one of the most popular science fiction novels about robotics.

Example

These are just of the topics that you can write that touches (Fictional) Artificial Intelligence.  The question is, how are you going to write your blog?

Well, you could do one of the following:

  1. Movie review
  2. Character/technology review
  3. List

These are just a few of the possibilities for AI-Themed blogs. Here is one example:
