The Conscious Web: When the Internet of Things Becomes Artificially Intelligent | Global Brain | Scoop.it
When Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and Elon Musk all agree on something, it’s worth paying attention.All three have warned of the potential dangers that artificial intelligence or AI can bring. The world’s foremost physicist, Hawking said that the full development of AI could “spell the end of the human race.” Musk, the tech entrepreneur who brought us PayPal, Tesla and SpaceX described artificial intelligence as our “biggest existential threat” and said that playing around with AI was like “summo

Ric Fry's curator insight, March 26, 8:59 PM

Neil Jacobstein, having worked on A.I. for a substantial period of time, comments on how A.I. will affect jobs via automation initially, but also that implementing A.I. automation will create more jobs. He stresses the point that A.I. wont necessarily remove the ability for humans to work, but with education and training, allow them to assist humans in working. This would lead to increased productivity overall, and to greater wealth and resource availability. He also reiterates the point that A.I. dangers are implemented by the people who create them to be dangerous.

Death is Optional - A Conversation: Yuval Noah Harari, Daniel Kahneman [3.4.15] ,EDGE | Global Brain | Scoop.it
Once you really solve a problem like direct brain-computer interface ... when brains and computers can interact directly, that's it, that's the end of history, that's the end of biology as we know it. Nobody has a clue what will happen once you solve this. If life can break out of the organic realm into the vastness of the inorganic realm, you cannot even begin to imagine what the consequences will be, because your imagination at present is organic. So if there is a point of Singularity, by definition, we have no way of even starting to imagine what's happening beyond that.

From Article: "I think that many of these science fiction scenarios, that computers will be like humans, are wrong. Computers are very, very, very far from being like humans, especially when it comes to consciousness. The problem is different, that the system, the military and economic and political system doesn't really need consciousness."

Can we create new senses for humans? | Global Brain | Scoop.it
As humans, we can perceive less than a ten-trillionth of all light waves. “Our experience of reality,” says neuroscientist David Eagleman, “is constrained by our biology.” He wants to change that. His research into our brain processes has led him to create new interfaces -- such as a sensory vest -- to take in previously unseen information about the world around us.

Ric Fry's curator insight, March 26, 7:26 AM

An article that attempts to debunk any fears we might have for "killer robots" or "evil" A.I in the near future. Andrew, who states is currently developing A.I, says that the ability to create human-like consciousness is way beyond our current or expected capacity in the near future. He stresses the importance of responsible use and also points out that yes, it is possible for an evil A.I. to be created, but the concern currently surrounding the topic is misplaced, and should be focused on what job sectors will be affected by work automation.
