Between Ape and Artilect

Between Ape and Artilect | Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it

During 2010-12, noted AI researcher and long-time Humanity+ Board member Ben Goertzel conducted a series of textual interviews with researchers in various areas of cutting-edge science — artificial general intelligence, nanotechnology, life extension, neurotechnology, collective intelligence, mind uploading, body modification, neuro-spiritual transformation, and more. These interviews were published online in H+ Magazine, and are here gathered together in a single volume. The resulting series of dialogues treats a variety of social, futurological and scientific topics in a way that is accessible to the educated non-scientist, yet also deep and honest to the subtleties of the topics being discussed.

 

Between Ape and Artilect is a must-read if you want the real views, opinions, ideas, muses and arguments of the people creating our future.

Michael Corcoran's insight:

Aiming to increase efficiency in the healthcare sector, a team of European scientists have created a global database, which allows robots to learn skills to adapt to previously unencountered situations. The implications of this technology go well beyond aged care and household applications.

With massive amounts of computational power, machines can now recognize objects and translate speech in real time. Artificial intelligence is finally getting smart.
Michael Corcoran's insight:

A partnership between Google and Ray Kurzweil has resulted in huge developments in 'Deep Learning', through simulation of the brain's neocortex as an artificial neural network.

If Daniel Nadler is right, a generation of college graduates with well-paid positions as junior researchers and analysts in the banking industry should be worried about their jobs. Very worried. Mr Nadler’s start-up, staffed with ex-Google engineers
Michael Corcoran's insight:

As seen throughout history, the progression of technology,  and its ability to operate at higher levels of efficiency inevitably results in the replacement of its human counterparts. Advancements in artificial intelligence are leading to a growing number of potential job losses due to computerisation.

Computer scientist Hava Siegelmann of the Biologically Inspired Neural & Dynamical Systems (BINDS) Laboratory at the University of Massachusetts
Michael Corcoran's insight:

Another step forward in the evolution of AI, the Super-Turing machine is capable of virtually limitless behaviours. This processing power could allow machines to perform higher intelligence tasks and greater communication and interaction with humans.

Michael Corcoran's insight:

The concept of 'mind uploading'  potentially blurs the lines between consciousness and artificial intelligence.
