Is it possible to build an ARTIFICIAL superintelligence without fully replicating the human brain ?

Is it possible to build an ARTIFICIAL superintelligence without fully replicating the human brain ? | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it
The technological singularity requires the creation of an artificial superintelligence (ASI). But does that ASI need to be modelled on the human brain, or is it even necessary to be able to fully replicate the human brain and consciousness digitally in order to design an ASI ?

futuris - New technologies are blurring the boundaries between the real and the virtual world. The brain can control a machine, and even perceive it as its own body.

On algorithms - is there still a place for human judgment?

Computers could take some tough decisions out of our hands, if we let them. Is there still a place for human judgement?

Artur Alves's curator insight, May 13, 2013 5:41 AM

One the most important questions of our times: what can we externalize into algorithms, and what should we keep as human responsibility?

 

"What lies behind our current rush to automate everything we can imagine? Perhaps it is an idea that has leaked out into the general culture from cognitive science and psychology over the past half-century — that our brains are imperfect computers. If so, surely replacing them with actual computers can have nothing but benefits. Yet even in fields where the algorithm’s job is a relatively pure exercise in number- crunching, things can go alarmingly wrong."
