When will singularity happen? 995 experts’ opinions on AGI

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, singularity

Experts believe AGI will occur around 2050, and plausibly sooner. You can see above their estimates regarding specific AI achievements: passing the Turing test, passing third grade, accomplishing Nobel worthy scientific breakthroughs and achieving superhuman intelligence.

Scientists prove diseased blood vessels communicate with the brain

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, existential risks, genetics, government, lifeboat, nanotechnology, robotics/AI, singularity

An international team which includes University of Manchester scientists has for the first time demonstrated that nerve signals are exchanged between clogged up arteries and the brain.

The discovery of the previously unknown electrical circuit is a breakthrough in our understanding of atherosclerosis, a potentially deadly disease where plaques form on the innermost layer of arteries.

The study of mice found that new nerve bundles are formed on the outer layer of where the artery is diseased, so the brain can detect where the damage is and communicate with it.

The Tesseract, Part I

Posted by in categories: futurism, singularity

But I am a visionary by the most grounded, neutral definition of the word (and so are you, undoubtedly):

By this definition, a “visionary” is just a person who regularly envisions the future and feels a deep need to design it with care, at times with such compulsive passion that it risks defining one on a core level and consuming one with endless details of a reality which has yet to formally occur.

In my inner midnight rambles, when this archetype is in full moonlit bloom, I envision our little enclave of ultra-talented, idiosyncratic, fun-loving Austin artist family winding up in some kind of post-apocalyptic village together, almost as if we’ve been training our entire lives for this…

The Cybernetic Theory of Mind: Novel “ToE” for Deeper Understanding of Reality

Posted by in categories: computing, singularity

The Cybernetic Theory of Mind, or the CTM model, is an integral multidisciplinary ontological model that allows to draw a wide variety of predictions and deductions from the intersections of two or more foundational axioms. The CTM model also allows integration of further epistemic elements under its broad ontological umbrella as they come to be known. The CTM model can be visualized as a 3D pyramid with 4 foundational axioms at the base and the OS axiom, related to the Omega Singularity (as well as “Operating System”), at the apex of the pyramid (See The CTM Pyramid of Foundational Axioms below).

The singularity is very close

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, singularity

I subtitled this post “Why we’re all in denial about the robot apocalypse”. I say that because I believe that society at large is completely, utterly, and woefully unprepared for the advent of sentient, living artificial general intelligence. I think the singularity is coming much sooner than most people expect, and I think it’s going to cause a great deal of upset when it arrives — for better and for worse.

Take for instance the common religious belief that people possess some unmeasurable, undefinable soul, and that this soul is what separates us from inanimate objects and non-sentient animals. Furthermore, some people believe that these souls come from deity. I have spoken with friends who believe that AGI is impossible because “robots can’t have souls, humans aren’t God”. For these people, like Caleb says in Ex Machina (paraphrasing), removing the line between man and machine also removes the line between god and man.

Now, this isn’t to say that AGI will destroy religion or anything — it may even be used to strengthen some sects (as taken to the extreme in HBO’s Raised By Wolves). No, religion has been around for millennia and I’m sure it will continue to be around for many more millennia. I’m simply predicting that a subset of religious people are going to experience lots of cognitive dissonance when the first AGI arrives.
