Is Artificial intelligence simply taking decisions on the basis of values produced by a machine learning model

I am researching on AI and its working. Whenever I try to search for AI algorithms, ML algorithms come up. Then, I read the differences between ML & AI. One of the key points mentioned was “AI is decision making” & “Machine learning is generating values and learn new things”.

I come up with a conclusion that ML allows us to take generate some sort of values and using AI we can make decisions with those values.

But I am confused with “The weather forecast” problem. Our machine learning model will directly generate the decision that will it rain or not? Is our ML model lies in the AI domain or I am wrong? Help me!

Skill Base Ability Score Changing Diplomacy from Charisma to Intelligence

I’m not sure if my google-fu is just off tonight or if there’s a way to change the 3.X/Pathfinder skill Diplomacy from being a Charisma based Skill to an Intelligence based skill.

I’d prefer 3.X (including sources like Kingdoms of Kalamar) and Pathfinder to be open… as well as a few other not so specific sources like Green Ronin press, or Book of Erotic Fantasy, etc…

I’m trying not to homebrew something myself, or to at least use outher sources as a reference. I’ve already looked at the X to Y reference, but didn’t find anything for changing Diplomacy form a Charisma based skill to Intelligence…

If you cast Polymorph on yourself, can you continue to concentrate after if the new form has a very low intelligence? [duplicate]

If you cast Polymorph on yourself to turn into a creature with low intelligence, can you/it continue to concentrate and thus remain in the polymorphed state for the duration of the spell? Or would the spell fail almost instantly because the new creature wouldn’t be able to concentrate?

The question arose from one of our players wanting to cast Polymorph on himself to turn himself into a Black Pudding (MM p.241). We all looked into the distance pensively.

The spell says it can transform to be a beast, so the “Black Pudding” would be out of the question, but some beasts have an Intelligence of 1, like the Black Pudding, for instance: a Lizard.

This spell transforms a creature that you can see within range into a new form. […] The transformation lasts for the duration, or until the target drops to 0 hit points or dies. The new form can be any beast whose challenge rating is equal to or less than the target’s (or the target’s level, if it doesn’t have a challenge rating). The target’s game statistics, including mental ability scores, are replaced by the statistics o f the chosen beast. It retains its alignment and personality. […] The creature is limited in the actions it can perform by the nature of its new form, and it can’t speak, cast spells, or take any other action that requires hands or speech.

(PHB p.266)

Are there any other practical reasons for choosing proficiency in Intelligence saving throws, other than seeing through illusions?

Are there any other practical reasons for choosing proficiency in Intelligence saving throws, other than seeing through illusions?

It was suggested to me to take the Resilient feat. I considered taking Intelligence, but I can only think back to a handful of occasions where I used an Intelligence saving throws and it was always to do with illusion magic.


Choose one ability score. You gain the following benefits:

  • Increase the chosen ability score by 1, to a maximum of 20.

  • You gain proficiency in saving throws using the chosen ability.

(PHB p. 168)

I mean, other than to have a better chance of seeing through an illusion spell, is there any point in having a proficiency with Intelligence saving throws?

It seems like it is the least useful out of all the saving throws proficiencies.

Dexterity, Wisdom and Constitution get used the most; Strength and Charisma less so, but Intelligence…

Of course, if you are in a campaign where illusions are very common, then yes I can see how this could be very beneficial, but for most campaigns I can’t see the point.

Are there any other uses for the Intelligence saving throw, such as to counter a monster’s special ability (other than an illusion)?

This is a question about saving throws, not ability checks.

How is ‘Same or Lower Intelligence’ determined for the spell Polymorph Any Object?

In this spell, one of the factors that determines the spell’s final duration is “Subject is… Same or lower intelligence.” What does that mean?

Obviously, if the spell turns the subject into an object, its intelligence will be lower and this will apply. Likewise, an object turned into a creature would not have this apply.

The spell can also be used to replicate the effects of baleful polymorph. As that spell can alter the target’s intelligence, it either would or would not make the target’s intelligence higher and the duration would or would not be affected by it, respectively.

However, when using the spell as greater polymorph, the target’s intelligence is not changed by any of the spells greater polymorph can replicate. In those cases, does the final duration factor just always receive the +2 increase?

If so, wouldn’t using this spell to change one mammal into another always end with a permanent duration? (+5 from same kingdom, +2 from from same class, +2 from same intelligence=9; duration permanent)

Learning Eldritch Blast, but for Intelligence spellcasting

Is there a way for an Eldritch Knight to learn the Eldritch Blast cantrip and be able to use Intelligence as the spellcasting modifier for it? The Spell Sniper and Magic Initiate feats both have the spellcasting ability score dependent on the class’ spell list, so that’s a no go. All stats except for Charisma meet the prerequisite for multiclassing so it’s an option to consider, but I prefer not to if possible.

I feel like a fighter archetype named Eldritch Knight should be able to learn Eldritch Blast using Intelligence, but I have no idea how to do so without homebrew. I appreciate the help.

(I’m unsure of what tags should be used for this, so I only have dnd-5e. Sorry!)

How do I roleplay a character with higher wisdom than myself, and lower intelligence?

I have seen a few similar questions related to intelligence, charisma and a general disparity in mental stats, but nothing yet on high Wis, low Int.

Lets start with the premise:

Intelligence measures mental acuity, accuracy of recall, and the ability to reason (phb.177)

Wisdom reflects how attuned you are to the world around you and represents perceptiveness and intuition (phb.178)

So a wise character will pick up on things that a normal person might not, such as identifying the warning signs that something just doesn’t feel right with a specific situation.

Now I don’t have this ability, and most DM’s struggle with giving enough clues or even creating a world where warning signs are something that can be picked up on at all.

A less intelligence character wouldn’t know many facts, wouldn’t learn from books, and wouldn’t quickly put 2 an 2 together when confronted with a situation.

So you are left with a character who might spot all sorts of warning signs going into a situation, but not necessarily know what they mean.

What are some strategies to help roleplay such a character? Especially in a situation where every word a DM says will likely be taken as important by everyone around the table so won’t stand out specifically to the person playing the character in question.

One source of inspiration has been Caduceus on Critical Role, but that seems to be the actual player picking up on things in order to make the wise comments, and I just don’t pick up on the same things in real life.

Note: If it matters, the particular character in question has 6 INT, and currently 16 WIS.

threat intelligence gateway

A TOG (threat intelligence gateway) is a hardware piece that sits between the router and the firewall. The TIG uses the threat intelligence and filters out the malicious urls and IPs before reaching the firewall.

My question is how I can build one, what are the parts of a TIG in terms of hardware, How can I build one that is not expensive?
