Good Old Fashioned Artificial Intelligence (GOFAI) demands the creation of an android or a robot that is intelligent, perceptive and has a reasonably good EQ (this is a later day addition to the old tenets of GOFAI). But is it really possible? Can such an android be created with Artificial Life? It is really intriguing. But as some of the soothsayers in AI say that there was a time in AI history when humans could build intelligence into algorithms but now it is no longer true. The result of GOFAI is manifested in creating games where androids and robots are on screen (two-dimensional or three-dimensional) and are at the control of a joystick or keyboard. Gaming androids are trapped on the screen. But can we build intelligence and common sense into them? That�s the big question.
