Artificial General Intelligence Limitations

Ray Kurzweil wrote the Singularity is Near in 2005 and he described the near inevitability of the creation of super intelligence and a Technological Singularity. Kurzweil built upon the Singularity ideas of Vernor Vinge. In nearly two decades, computers have continued to improve, algorithms have improved and AI has improved. The Deep Learning and Reinforcement …

Deep Mind Assert Reinforcement Learning Could Solve Artificial General Intelligence

Powerful reinforcement learning agents could constitute a solution to artificial general intelligence. They hypothesise that intelligence, and its associated abilities, can be understood as subserving the maximisation of reward. Accordingly, reward is enough to drive behavior that exhibits abilities studied in natural and artificial intelligence, including knowledge, learning, perception, social intelligence, language, generalisation and imitation. …

Current Uncontrolled Technology Versus Uncontrollable AGI

A fear of many who are familiar with AI and technology is that Artificial intelligence could progress to the point where it is rapidly self-improving and not controllable by humanity. The scenarios is that Artificial General Intelligence will become more powerful and more intelligent than humans and it will circumvent all human control. Currently, there …

Technology For 2010-2020 – Ramping to a Later Technological Singularity

J Storrs Hall looks at what the Singularity look like with just nanotech (full out molecular nanotechnology) and narrow AI? * Life Extension via molecular nanotech * human level AI * nanofactories enable the entire physical economy over into a Moore’s Law-like growth mode, eradicating hunger and poverty in a decade or two. * Flying …
