10 Signs You Should Invest In Artificial Intelligence | Future set | Scoop.it

Artificial intelligence is arguably already one of the most important industries in the world, and as most futurists predict, it is growing in importance everyday. Here are a few more reasons you should invest not only your money, but your time in understanding some of the important implications of the technology.


As Steve Omohundro points out, the field of artificial intelligence is at an inflection point of huge opportunities, great disruption, arms races and even dangers.

Here are some of the major factors why AI should weigh heavy on you as you plan for the future.

In this discussion 2030 laid out an overview of his ‘transhuman’ philosophy and held a back and forth with other people present in the discussion. Discussion and debate included items such as the value of researching ‘indefinite lifespan’ technologies directly as opposed to (or in addition to) more traditional approaches, such as researching cures for specific diseases.

 

The excerpts in this archive file present a sort of thesis of FM 2030’s transhuman ideas.

 

About FM 2030: FM 2030 was at various points in his life, an Iranian Olympic basketball player, a diplomat, a university teacher, and a corporate consultant. He developed his views on transhumanism in the 1960s and evolved them over the next thirty-something years. He was placed in cryonic suspension July 8th, 2000.

Singularity or Transhumanism: What Word Should We Use to Discuss the Future?

Singularity or Transhumanism: What Word Should We Use to Discuss the Future? | Future set | Scoop.it
Singularity. Posthuman. Techno-Optimism, Cyborgism. Humanity+. Immortalist. Machine intelligence. Biohacker. Robotopia. Life extension. Transhumanism. These are all terms thrown around trying to describe a future in which mind uploading, indefinite lifespans, artificial intelligence, and bionic augmentation may (and I think will) help us to become far more than just human.

Immortality will be Delivered by the Singularity Say Scientists

Immortality will be Delivered by the Singularity Say Scientists | Future set | Scoop.it
You may never have heard of the Singularity, but many scientists call its advent “inevitable,” and it has the potential-some would even say the promise-to deliver the human race to immortality. In order to understand how we can become immortal via the Singularity, we first have to understand what it is. According to Ray Kurzweil, author of The Singularity is Near and co-founder of Singularity University: ...

"Biotechnology is providing the means to actually change your genes: not just designer babies but designer baby boomers…the nanotechnology revolution…will achieve maturity in the 2020s. With nanotechnology, we will be able to go beyond the limits of biology, and replace your current “human body version 1.0” with a dramatically upgraded version 2.0, providing radical life extension…As we get to the 2030s, the nonbiological portion of our intelligence will predominate."
