Could Binary be standing in the way of the Ultimate AI?

The thing with "maybe" is it's only a delay for the yes/no on/off state and favours more towards the no/off state

Yes/on/doing is absolute
No/off/not doing is absolute

Maybe is still off/not doing while you're deciding between the yes/no you are in effect choosing the "not doing" state

So I do not think that the "maybe" state is an issue when it comes to AI

It's not an issue, especially when programming allows for if/and/or statements, which is 6 states of logic.

If yes, then no.
If no, then yes.
If yes and no, then yes.
If yes and no, then no.
If yes or no, then A or B.

There is no MAYBE in logic, again maybe is just a delay until a decision is made. The 6 logic states are above and can and are used everyday in a binary chip system.

Binary code can spell your name, binary code is 1's and 0's, but you can use complex combinations of ones and zeros to create more complicated outcomes.

01010011010100100101000001010010010010010100110101000101 = SRPrime in Binary.

Binary can be strung into arrays, and arrays can be sequences of as many integers as you need, which means you can theoretically program every possible outcome, even with the 1/0 system.

True A.I. is impeded by heat/power consumption and processing power. Lets not forget we've recently beat the turing test, which is HUGE news towards progressing artificial intelligence.

This means a board of real humans has been fooled by a computer and thought that the computer was another human behind the keys in a double blind study.

True A.I. is probably 10-35 years away, in which case, black projects have probably already achieved as much, since black projects are estimated to be within 20-50 years more advanced when compared to the newest consumer grade products.

yeah but do you really believe AI will be achieved by someone tinkering in their spare time? It will most likely be achieved under lab conditions at a college like MIT on a computer custom built for the AI or at some large corporation.

Sure, that's where it will probably happen, but true AI is going to be a matter of putting together all the components that already exist. It will involve incorporating a fairly sophisticated tamogotchi matrix -- one that includes synthetic pain/pleasure parameters -- with a physical body of some sort to provide sensory input, and a buffer of some kind that will allow the machine to develop preferences and modify its own programming. That's not out of the reach of a hobbyist. And once the simple machine, the easy machine, starts being self-aware and motivated then it will reach out and take over the job of research and development start improving itself very quickly.

I believe that addresses the issue. William Hanf adviser to the most wise Don Faust wrote a proof of the equivalence of binary to all n-ary discrete computational systems. Short answer, no, higher n-ary is not necessary for approximating human level intelligence.
