You can use all the quantitative data you can get, but you still have to distrust it and use your own intelligence and judgment.
There’s three things: there’s masculinity, there’s intelligence, there’s sensitivity. You’ve got to bring those three things to a leading man‘s role: masculinity, sensitivity, intelligence. In some people, there’s a little too much in the mix of one or the other.

It is conceded by all that man is the very highest type of all living creatures on the earth. His intelligence is far superior to that of any other earthly being.
Because hip-hop has no requirements, you deal with people that have the least intelligence on the planet. Some of the people that compare themselves to me, compare themselves to me because they rap and I rap. They can’t even read the contracts that they sign to be a rapper, to do the deal.
As a nation we have, over the past seven years, been rebuilding our intelligence with powerful capabilities that many thought we would no longer need after the Cold War.

So there is a foreign intelligence purpose for every one of our FISA warrants.
My dad is still Christian Scientist. My mom’s not, and I’m not. But I believe in God, and that there’s a higher power and an intelligence that’s bigger than us and that we can rely on. It’s not just us, thinking we are the ones in control of everything. That idea gives me support.
I’m working on artificial intelligence. Actually, natural language understanding, which is to get computers to understand the meaning of documents.

A person must have a certain amount of intelligent ignorance to get anywhere.
By the way, intelligence to me isn’t just being book-smart or having a college degree; it’s trusting your gut instincts, being intuitive, thinking outside the box, and sometimes just realizing that things need to change and being smart enough to change it.
Success means at least you are finding full potential to who you are in terms of your intelligence, your capability and competence: you are finding full expression to who you are. This is important.
Being a unique superpower undermines the military intelligence of strategy. To think strategically, one has to imagine oneself in the enemy’s place. If one cannot do this, it is impossible to foresee, to take by surprise, to outflank. Misinterpreting an enemy can lead to defeat. This is how empires fall.
I refuse to be molded into some stereotypical ballplayer that has no interests, really, no life, no depth, no intelligence.
I mean, we must act with intelligence. We must work on this framework, so that immigration becomes an asset to both nations. Believe me, what – just the Mayor Bloomberg said here in New York, that this city would be stopped, totally stopped if it were not by the immigrants working here.

There’s some way in which we would prefer not to see very clearly the immense gifts and intelligence of some of the people who live in our most abject conditions.

I think intelligence is totally subjective; it’s like sexiness.
I found that our Soviet espionage efforts had virtually never, or had very seldom, produced any worthwhile political or economic intelligence on the Soviet Union.
When AI approximates Machine Intelligence, then many online and computer-run RPGs will move towards actual RPG activity. Nonetheless, that will not replace the experience of ‘being there,’ any more than seeing a theatrical motion picture can replace the stage play.

I think that animals aren’t less intelligent than humans, they’re just of a different intelligence.

They can smell different types of emotion, they just have another type of intelligence.
I think politicians misjudge our intelligence. We can, and do, see through them. But I quite enjoy watching political programmes because they get the heart going.

When people are in the thrall of poisonous ideology, it’s really not all about deliberate ill will, or inherent hatred, or a lack of intelligence. It’s about the unbelievable destructiveness and staying power of bad ideas and about finding ways to equip people with the tools they need to fight them.
Self-awareness is a trait – or maybe ‘practice’ is the more accurate way to put it – that everyone can always improve at.
