Off to AGI-10

I’m on my way to AGI-10, the general AI conference, in Lugano. ┬áIf any readers are attending, let’s get together.

Among other things, we’ll be unveiling a preliminary take on the AGI Roadmap (of which Foresight is a sponsor).

    I’ll be there – hopefully I’ll bump into you and say hi. I *would* bring my copy of Beyond AI for you to autograph but I’m afraid it might be a bit heavy! :)

    I hope the AGI roadmap doesn’t say the typical “20 years away” – I mean, supercomputers are approaching human brain levels (in computations per second) within the next couple of years, and will be doubling (at least) every year and a half after that. Before you guys throw out “20 years away” consider that supercomputers will be 32 – 64 times more powerful than a human brain in just 15 years. I just hope you guys take supercomputer CPS (computations per second) into account, that’s all.

    So James, what would you do with access to one of these super AI systems?

  4. James Gentile Says:

    The question is a little ambigious Erin, do you mean after most major problems have been solved or before? First, you’ll need to design/simulate and fabricate nano-scale robots and manufacturing systems to eliminate disease, poverty, death, etc. which will probably indirectly (or perhaps directly if necessary) eliminate crime and war. After all the managing is done, I will relax with my family/friends and enjoy fine foods and hopefully enjoy and eternal retirement.
