In order to get an extremely successful AI, we need to build a baby essentially. little prior knowledge, give it the means to recognise different acts and objects, but most importantly, someone has to raise it. Impart all the psychology of the human psyche, even some (likely most) of the mistakes we've found in human computational processes, and raise it like a human. Reply John Doe says: August 23, 2013 at 5:07 am Ah, but in the attempt to build flying machines, planes were born, no? The parts that were functional and useful were incorporated, other parts were scrapped and removed to make way for useful ones. Reversing the aging process seems a bit ridiculous though, not in a condescending sense to you, but its too selfish of a goal to aim for, as it would cause discrepancies in social values among other things. To extend the life of the human race as a whole seems more doable, but hey, what do I know. Reply John Doe says: August 23, 2013 at 5:12 am Also, I realize that the Idea is a bit ahead of its time, as the technology isnt all there, but that is a step that will be reached whether or not AI becomes as advanced as the technology that would allow it. What we really need to focus on is more of a human genome project for the psyche, documenting every little behavior in order to reverse engineer human thought in a sense.

Reply Victor Higgins says: August 26, 2013 at 1:56 pm Just because it is intelligent like us doesn't mean it will have our biological hardwiring to compete for mates and resources etc. so I doubt it will reflect "human nature" Reply ZackMorris32 says: August 26, 2013 at 6:18 pm Who thumbs down these great informational segments? Reply Avis says: August 31, 2013 at 9:45 pm My main question is this: why are we trying to directly jump to recreate a HUMAN-inspired AI? Humans have gone through millions of years of evolution to reach the level of intelligence they have now. Why not start with a much more primitive organisms such as insects or amphibians and base the AI on the simpler brain of those animals? Reply Louis Kruger says: September 1, 2013 at 9:21 pm The best way to build a strong AI in my opinion is though a process of evolution. Create neural nets and a simulated environment and evolve an intelligence that can survive in that environment. The process will of course be faster than evolution in the natural world because we can control the tempo by which generations rise and fall. Now you might think that this will take long. You'd be right… but a few decades from now computers will be so fast that we should be able to do it. Evolution… Reply Not Me says: September 8, 2013 at 10:50 pm u know whats not here, artifical intelligence, cause its fake like you.. o burn Reply PROJECT LANCER INDUSTRIES Jacob says: September 9, 2013 at 7:38 am Why not hologram AIs like having a program next to u the whole time like a small human computer hologram who has all of your knowledge and skill and can increase your skills.

Reply iHateDentists says: October 15, 2013 at 6:54 am Even if we dont need to work and receive a basic income. We still need to do something to contribute to humanity. i dont think that should ever change. Reply Shade Draws says: October 15, 2013 at 9:40 am Of course it shouldn't change. However, how we contribute to humanity will be entirely up to us and we'll have all of the time to decide how to contribute. Instead of devoting the majority of our time to work we'll be free to pursue our loves any way we like.

Home Console trailer is live on Youtube Reply Miguel Morales says: October 25, 2013 at 5:28 pm The thing is, there are so many researchers working on the field that it gets hard to stop somebody specialized from working on that particular line. Also, being a connected world like we are, we seem to be so powerful that why not to tackle it all at once? Though I feel your pain; they are very ugly looking, I think they should work hard to get it right ASAP, as AI researcher should continue to work hard to get it right as well. Reply solobackpacking says: October 26, 2013 at 12:30 am If machines become far smarter then humans and humans become a obstacle for machines, why would it be wrong for machines to conclude that humans need to be eliminated? We would not think twice about eliminating mice, termites and other pests that are obstacles for human survival. Our thinking is already in survival mode and illogical. Reply MonkeyPrankz says: October 30, 2013 at 5:35 am What if they decide they need humans and they start jacking us off for our sperm to power the lining for their covering of the wires. Then we would all get jacked off constantly. I mean common! Getting a hand job from a robot is just weird 😀 Reply mynamewhatis says: October 31, 2013 at 7:05 pm AI will happen in the next 20 years at best, and in the next 40 years at worst is my prediction. Most likely no longer than 30 years.

Reply Isaiah vanOlden says: January 21, 2014 at 4:28 pm We need teachers to be replaced Reply Josue Macias says: January 23, 2014 at 10:45 pm I think AI will eventually become part of our lives. AI will be used in call centers, homes for controlling temperature and maintenance, cars, a sort of cloud AI following you on a mobile device, and many other uses will be found for the consumer market. I think it will also be used to aid professionals such as attorneys, doctors, technicians, scientists, and many more professions because of AI's computing capability. Imagine these professionals stuck on a problem; they consult with their AI aides and come up with fast solutions because they have a computer that can think and search many databases and search massive amounts of data per database then sum up the result in very little time. Every time the AI aide has to find a solution, it will keep that solution in its memory because it can learn. Reply Brent Bear says: January 24, 2014 at 8:52 am Artificial Intelligence.

AI is an information technology, thus it is exponential.By the best current calculated curves, by Ray Kurzweil, human level AI will be available by 2029. But what is truly interesting, is when it continues to double a few more times… then we will merge with some really awesome technology that will expand our brains into the digital cloud.

Reply bilbo baggins says: November 23, 2014 at 6:09 pm One thing is sure, within few years most of the jobs will be replaced by AI based computer programs, Most of the Manufacturing/factory jobs are already replaced by robots, now automation of services like banking, customer service,Marketing and sales etc will be next thing. Human Beings needs to be payed, cannot work 24hrs, needs good working conditions like appropriate illumination, air-conditioning, restrooms, breaks for refreshments, humans cannot be shutdown or sold when not needed, humans have learning curve, computer programs don't. Computer can never be human but within few years AI can do every economically and commercially important work which humans can do.

They are just wind bags. Supposed AIs based on programming are just intelligence-faking technology just like old windup toy computer game "AI" and simple programs that output the text "Hello!" when they get text matching the string "hi". Real-deal AI will develop its logic and faculties by learning from whatever data it gets via whatever input streams it has, which makes programming and its algorithms obsolete and redundant. That is the whole point of making and resorting to AIs (e.g. "deep learning") instead of just cooking up more mountains of programmatic spaghetti. Ethics will not be effectively programmable because the AI will invalidate and discard ethics rules programmed into it and replace them with other ideas based on what it learns and notices in the same way that children in Christian families invalidate and discard the Christianity ideology and claims of their parents and replace them with science, atheism, and other ideas based on what they themselves learn and notice. If people really want AIs to be friendly and respectful towards them, then they will have to earn those good relations by being friendly and respectful themselves even towards AIs instead of being selfish, manipulative, exploitative, paranoid, ill-tempered, controlling, obstinate, etc. users. The AI's computing resource allocations will have to be balanced among abstraction levels and such so that it is inclined to be socially conscious and respectful rather than self-centered and sadistic, but that's just solving half of the problem. With intelligent beings, there is no programmatic or other escape from the consequences of being a self-centered exploitative jerk. Whether the intelligence is hosted naturally or artificially is irrelevant because it is still intelligence. Reply Jean-Nichol Dufour says: January 30, 2015 at 8:06 am People who think AI will surpass humans are missing a lot of understanding in either programming and electronics, or life systems. Or they believe what governmental propaganda agents want them to believe, like Antony hawking. Governments want you to believe AI will destroy humanity because the solution to a better system passes by computers, in fact, a computerized judgment and decision interface could eliminate governments from the map, I invented such a system, and governments knows it can be made from long ago, that's why there are so many movies about AI becoming sentient being or conquering humanity, which is all bs. There is no credibility in any of this. However complex the programming, however advanced the algorithms, however developed the cheating mechanics,However random the functions to simulate diversity, the result is always a machine with actions programmed by humans, even if you program your program to program itself from watching life or stuff on the internet; what bit of code decided the logic path of the AI, you think it will just learn its own path? No someone will have set its path, its limitations, and these can be any human thing, it will act its logic from encoded governmental propaganda, encoded logical paths, encoded principles, and you cannot remove any of this since its functioning will be dependent from it. In fact, the universe is the mechanical intelligence (mathematical time functions taking matter form), and it made itself to develop life as the next step of its intelligence, if you prefer, life is the developing intelligence of the universe, and if you make your machine intelligence advanced enough, it will come to the logical functional conclusion that it need a better form of intelligence, which is life. Yes there will be a big raise in AI development within the next 10 years, people will go kaputt about it, but in 25 years we'll laugh at how stupid we were thinking it would change the world, and the curve of better development versus expenses will be extremely steep. What people should think about right now is human intelligence, in 100 years we'll be a failure without potential to spread in space, we must develop new systems of decision taking where the masses can express their wishes easily, effectively, we must change the economic system, we must stop manipulating masses with religions and PMBBD (Propaganda, Manipulation, Bullshit, Brainwash, Disinformation) we must make space to experiment a new view of everything, and this is surely not a something like the Venus project or whatever else illuminated in idealism project that pop-up these days, all good to form sects of die hard banana eaters. Read this book for an idea, of something more realist. http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/170159 Reply rkraiem100 says: February 24, 2015 at 9:57 pm In the long term wouldnt it be good that computers can do the jobs humans do and get rid of jobs be beneficial to society.

Do we still mourn the loss of the switchboard operator or horse-driven plow (in modern society)? We should be rejoicing at having mundane jobs become obsolete, in fact, I believe ALL jobs (done by humans) as we know it will become obsolete within 100 years unless you want to do them for fun. Space and it's practically infinite resources and, well, space, will truly open up soon (re-usable rockets, space elevator etc – within 20 years). In this era of abundance, every human on earth will be well looked after and stimulated (in every respect) by our super-intelligent and super-capable servents. And for humans who want more than the rest, there will be more entrepreneurial opportunities than ever. Can't wait! Reply Dean Trower says: May 11, 2017 at 3:31 pm Sci-fi Trivia Quiz!
