General Theory of General Intelligence: Critical Priors for Human-Like General Intelligence

Posted by in categories: blockchains, education, information science, robotics/AI, singularity

This is Episode 7 in a series of videos discussing the General Theory of General Intelligence as overviewed in the paper.
Goertzel, Ben. “The General Theory of General Intelligence: A Pragmatic Patternist Perspective.“
This episode overviews ideas regarding how the particular nature and requirements of *human-like-ness* can be used guide the design and education of AGI systems. This is where cognitive science and computer science richly intersect. Core architectural ideas of OpenCog along with numerous other AGI systems (MicroPsi, LIDA, Aaron Sloman’s work,…) are reviewed in this context.

Can We Merge With Artificial General Intelligence? — The AGI Symbiosis

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, employment, existential risks, military, nuclear weapons, robotics/AI, singularity

Artificial General Intelligence — Short for AGI is a trending and recent topic of debate among AI researchers and computer scientists. A pressing issue for AI or artificial Intelligence is the AI alignment problem. The AI control problem could be the most important task for humanity to solve. There have been many suggestions from AI researchers to avoid the dangers of artificial general intelligence or a digital super-intellgience. It seems among the best solutions to this problem has been a merging scenario with AGI. Elon Musk has suggested we regulate artificial intelligence and we should proceed very carefully if humanity collectively decides that creating a digital super-intelligence is the right move. Elon Musk is the founder of many high tech companies, including Neuralink. Which develops implantable brain–machine interfaces. Elon Musk warns that AI is probably the biggest existential threat for humanity. AGI is probably even more dangerous than nuclear warheads and nobody would suggest we allow anyone to build nuclear weapons if they want. The pressing issue for a potential AGI development and eventually the creation of a digital super-intelligence is going to be increasingly relevant in the coming years. Dr. Ben Goertzel, CEO & Founder, of SingularityNET Foundation, is one of the world’s foremost experts in Artificial General Intelligence. According to him these reactions are probably going to look very silly to people a few decades from now, as they go about their lives which have been made tremendously easy and happy and fascinating compared to 2020 reality, via the wide rollout of advanced AGI systems to handle manufacturing service, and all the other practical jobs that humans now spend their time doing. Elon musk suggested, the merge scenario with A.I. is the one that seems like probably the best,” or as he put it on the Joe Rogan Experience. “If you can’t beat it, join it.

Meteorites older than the solar system contain key ingredients for life

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, chemistry, singularity

I believe that these microbes are not just simple organisms but are some sorta biological singularity seeds that activate over millions of years developing life slowly and may be exterrestial in origin.

Researchers from Hokkaido University in Japan have found new evidence that the chemical components necessary to build DNA may have been carried to Earth by carbonaceous meteorites, some of the earliest matter in the solar system, as they report in a study published Tuesday in Nature Communications. Although these kinds of materials make up about 75 percent of all asteroids, they rarely fall to Earth, limiting how often scientists can study them. Yet they are troves of information: Scrutinizing these space rocks can tell stories about unique cosmic locations. Their contents may also help reveal the ancient chemical reactions that made our world a living planet.

Specifically, several meteorites have been found to contain nucleobases. These chemicals, called the building blocks of life, make up the nucleic acids inside DNA and RNA. Of the five major nucleobases, previous meteorite studies detected only three of them, named adenine, guanine, and uracil. But the present research proves for the first time that two more—cytosine and thymine—can exist within space rocks.

Probing the Secrets to Human Longevity with Methuselah Flies

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, life extension, robotics/AI, singularity

In the 1980s, biologist Dr Michael Rose started to selectively breed Drosophila fruit flies for increased longevity. Today, the descendants of the original Methuselah flies are held by biotech firm Genescient Corporation and live 4.5 times longer than normal fruit flies.

The flies’ increased lifespan is explained by a significant number of systemic genetic changes — but how many of these variations represent lessons that can be used to design longevity therapies for humans? Dr. Ben Goertzel and his bio-AI colleagues at SingularityNET and Rejuve. AI are betting the answer is quite a few.

SingularityNET and Rejuve. AI have launched a partnership with Genescient to apply advanced machine learning and machine reasoning methods to transfer insights gained from the Methuselah fly genome to the human genome. The goal is to acquire new information regarding gene therapies, drugs or nutraceutical regimens for prolonging healthy human life.

Human cognition-enhancing CORD7 mutation increases active zone number and synaptic release

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, engineering, neuroscience, singularity

This article tells of possible way to increase brain intelligence through a certain mutation which in theory could be altered for biological singularity like effects in the future.

Humans carrying the CORD7 (cone-rod dystrophy 7) mutation possess increased verbal IQ and working memory. This autosomal dominant syndrome is caused by the single-amino acid R844H exchange (human numbering) located in the 310 helix of the C2A domain of RIMS1/RIM1 (Rab3-interacting molecule 1). RIM is an evolutionarily conserved multi-domain protein and essential component of presynaptic active zones, which is centrally involved in fast, Ca2+-triggered neurotransmitter release. How the CORD7 mutation affects synaptic function has remained unclear thus far. Here, we established Drosophila melanogaster as a disease model for clarifying the effects of the CORD7 mutation on RIM function and synaptic vesicle release.

To this end, using protein expression and X-ray crystallography, we solved the molecular structure of the Drosophila C2A domain at 1.92 Å resolution and by comparison to its mammalian homolog ascertained that the location of the CORD7 mutation is structurally conserved in fly RIM. Further, CRISPR/Cas9-assisted genomic engineering was employed for the generation of rim alleles encoding the R915H CORD7 exchange or R915E, R916E substitutions (fly numbering) to effect local charge reversal at the 310 helix. Through electrophysiological characterization by two-electrode voltage clamp and focal recordings we determined that the CORD7 mutation exerts a semi-dominant rather than a dominant effect on synaptic transmission resulting in faster, more efficient synaptic release and increased size of the readily releasable pool but decreased sensitivity for the fast calcium chelator BAPTA.
