Limitations Of The GL System


Now let us look at the limitations of the GL (General Learner) system. First, the system has physical limits which are created by the amount and type of senses it possesses and by the elementary responses it can perform. It has only two senses (the input devices of a mouse and a keybord), and its elementary responses are limited to producing drawings and words on a screen. Obviously the system cannot show intelligence beyond these limits.

Further, there are important "mental" limits, those due to its program functions for processing concepts and response rules. For example, the GL system cannot:

As you can see from the above limitations, much more work is still needed to reach a satisfactory artificial intelligent system.
