Smart Machines Will Take Us With Them Do Not Worry
Category : Artificial Intelligence
What Edison did was create a production line and industrialization of experimentation to create a better light bulb.
He may not was that smart of a scientific mind. It’s a well basically Edison applied large number experimentation to create an easily made and replicated light bulb, henry Ford, or it was the other way around. Well, I’ll tell you what, that I’m aware, only one man rightfully guessed our future back 83 years ago, and that was Aldous Huxley. AI/HumanIQ is very hyped. Orwell did a pretty nice work, he almost nailed it. It’s being taken to a fantasy level, where people imagine how the world may be in 50 years time, that’s it. Waiting for the next Einstein to be born ain’t the right strategy, it’s making information widely available to any who need it and teaching people to look at the laws that govern our worlds as malleable.
We must foster an environment which cultivates these strokes of genius if we need them to occur. The examples go on. Both played an essential role in the Allied victory in WWI. Turing and von Neumann were special, and far beyond peers of their era. Of course as a frequent visitor to Los Alamos he made contributions to hydrodynamics and computation that were essential to the United States’ nuclear weapons program. Let me tell you something. Von Neumann placed the new quantum theory on a rigorous mathematical foundation, before the war. Whenever turing famously broke the German Enigma codes, not before conceptualizing the notion of mechanized thought in his Turing Machine, that was to become the main theoretical construct in modern computer science. Notice that today, we need geniuses like von Neumann and Turing more than ever before. That is interesting. That’s being that we may already be running into the genetic limits of intelligence. Eventually, in talking to students at MIT, Know what guys, I notice that most of the very brightest ones, who would have gone into physics twenty years ago, are now going into biology. You could give an argument that something really like this has happened in loads of fields.
There are a number of jobs out there that can only be taken by humans.
Machines SHOULD HAVE substituted humans in the jobs that can be done by machines, that obviously are not all. The majority of those jobs happen to be located in the nonrational intelligences. The detailed inner workings of a complex machine intelligence may turn out to be incomprehensible to our human minds or at least the human minds of today. Certainly, inevitably, the extremely wealthy will access it first, and very quickly this will create an additional layer of entrenchment of privilege. What happens when the technology to improve your child’s genes becomes available to the public?
The Huntington barrier makes sense. As the brain devotes more energy to abstract puzzle solving perhaps this leads to a momentum effect whereby the intelligent devote themselves even more to this activity causing equal declines in other areas of the brain like emotional control or social skill development. Do you know an answer to a following question. How do you, simultaneously or otherwise, cognitively improve human intelligence? Then again, as far as Homosexuality I am aware of no studies showing connection to higher intelligence i do know of at least one that shows a larger penis size among male homosexuals, I actually would point out that those with higher intelligence. Often have more social capital and as such rather than be in the closet as you suggest will feel safe acting at least partially out of it.
This is nearly identical to Homosexuality among the creative classes is it actually associated with creativity?
Let’s say, of Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences theory, as long as I presume the theorizer is aware.
While And so it’s true that machines do pose a great menace to workforce, and that they’re limited to what the programmer has programmed them for, it misses something very important. Our educational system is on the basis of the needs of the industrial revolution. All as they don’t conform to a retrograde system.https.// This is a great point. On top of that, intelligence is an evolutionary response to a particular context and set of survival challenges. That means everyone has to jump through the standarization loop, regardless your level. So, many individuals are left aside by this system, despite their high intelligences.
Assuming that intelligence is somehow the teleological endpoint of evolution is incredibly anthropocentric, and pretty much wrong along each conceivable axis.
What IQ, the very nature of IQ. OK.
It’s completely outdated, and treats kids depending on a standard, as if all were equal. Attraction in sexual selection choice isn’t the driver of evolution, reproductive sucess is. Are the children of intelligent people more gonna eventually have children themselves? Can this also be said of groups that contain at least some portion, shall we say, less than intelligent members? Who survive to have offspring, its tail is futile evolutionarily speaking, its still a nice tail, Therefore if the prettiest peacock doesn’t have offspring.
It doesn’t matter a lot if intelligence, wealth, physical fitness, thick chest hair or a sloped forehead is considered attractive rather it matters if those traits increase in the population, do they produce more offspring or more offspring who will survive or suceed un producing more offspring.
As we are pack animals is a breeding group of people who contain classically intelligent members more gonna sucessfully continue to reproduce long time than one that doesn’t?
Do intelligent people have more children? One can easily see any higher porportion of mental illness or problems as more about higher stress than higher intelligence. Ok, and now one of the most important parts. Those who are exceptionally intelligent may also have exceptionally stressful or competitive positions, they might be rapidly advanced thru school at a young age, they may also have a smaller peergroup, less shoulders to lean on and comisserate with in the bar after, and hence thier mental problems even if more common, that again I point out loads of us are aware that there is very little relable evidence that they are, have more to do with those factors than in any way associated with intelligence.
Yes we seem to being doing fairly well with it in the mean time but we are a very recent addition to plenty of the planet and our closest ancestors the chimps aren’t exactly a world spanning species either.
While relatively noncontemplative crocs and sharks will likely keep on keeping on.
Our long period evolutionary success is still to be determined as in as little as million years from now both our species may be a distant memory. Normally, aspergers is currently a far gonna come to this particular diagnosis? Is it actually the case that these things are associated with a higher IQ? Yes, that’s right! Is it possible that it rather that we simply notice intelligent people more? Whenever nothing unusual here, re just norms, we think imagining what normal is. Of course, the idea of a preponderance of aspergers mental illness and homosexuality at the top of the intelligence scale and hence is somehow associated with Undoubtedly it’s an often stated idea but very statistically suspect.
The author writes. Nature solved this search problem by brute force, effectively performing a huge computation involving trillions of evolving agents of varying information processing capability in a complex environment. Mathematical systems are tools of natural intelligence, that are strategic systems that can’t be understood mathematically. It uses a sort of intelligence to do so, Therefore in case nature computes. We humans have self evolved our biological strategies to operate in a far more complex manner than our ancestors had their own reasons to need and use. Bacteria on the other had evolved more complex systems than we have yet to do a few million years ago. While consuming more energy and probably rewriting the biochemistry of the neurons so they fire faster, This will involve re engineering the body to accommodate the larger brain. Remember, to achieve a large increase in IQ I suspect that the brain will have to be a lot larger and faster. The brain ain’t independent of the body, or physics. Just at that, as they also need them to be stupid, they need human calculators. People who excel.
The gap in hardware is incredible.
Whenever figuring out ways to manipulate existing brains but most of the processes should theoretically happen on very biological timescales, We might invent other biological processes with our newfound intelligence cloning and growing brains directly.
There’s no comparing the speed of the neuron and the speed of the modern processor. Machines also have a huge advantage in the spawning of new generations. Generally, to make new generations of smarter humans, the most probably nearterm scenario is that we breed them and raise them to maturity. Cognitive engineering, via direct edits to embryonic human DNA, will eventually produce individuals who are well beyond all historical figures in cognitive ability. Anyway, if all were simultaneously improved, we can be sure And so it’s far beyond our own.
Very roughly. Corresponding to a IQ of extent of intelligence represents. The potential for improved human intelligence is enormous. Cognitive ability is influenced by thousands of genetic loci, every of small effect. Now look, a kind of ‘fly to the light’ error exists in the algorithm, whereby humans still primarily select on malthusian survivial traits like strength, height, fertility etcetera Intelligence at higher levels as Turing is an ideal example of, is arguably evolutionary inviable – the preponderence of aspergers, mental illness and homosexuality at the top of the distribution curve, if anything.
Any understanding of the human sexual market in advanced nations where survival needs been met, will show that intelligence, as defined by IQ testing isn’t the most attractive trait either male or female agents find in partners.
IQ will lead to a lot more of these.
Most insightful comment on this thread and something I personally have come to understand. What? Government panels? It isn’t at all clear that if Mozart had chosen to paint, he would have been more than average. Consider for a moment another domain. How and who will determine which kinds of intelligence are most important for both machines and humans? Therefore, instead of tennis, for player B to beat player C and yet for player C to consistently beat player If, one considers all the various human activities that we engage in, it’s even more true that intelligence is multidimensional, It is quite possible in tennis for player A to beat player B. With that said, That’s a fact, it’s an important point that biological human intelligence might be modified in loads of ways with smarter machines in AI and that there can be a positive feedback loop between the two. Will it be free market forces? Perhaps if Turing had become a lawyer or Von Neumann a manager, they loads of narrowly defined tasks, just like image or character recognition, Silicon brains of this kind. AI research also pushes even very bright humans to their limits. That’s where it starts getting very entertaining. The theoretical basis for this work is still primitive, and it remains largely an empirical blackish art. Basically the resulting structures are mysterious to us, we are learning how to tune deep neural nets using large samples of training data. In such extraordinarily complex systems it’s exceedingly difficult to establish reliable general statements. Make sure you leave suggestions about it in the comment form. What technology wants.
Kevin Kelly tracks this throughout history and uncovers that ‘genius’ ain’t quite the heroic and transcendental phenomenon which we are led to believe.
Not for at least ten years or more. Admits that ‘someone else will have come up with it.
New York. Needless to say, for some of humanity, the inevitable happens on schedule. By 2050, there could be another rapidly evolving and advancing intelligence besides that of machines. The cost to sequence a human genome has fallen below $ 1000, and powerful methods was developed to unravel the genetic architecture of complex traits like human cognitive ability. Technologies already exist which allow genomic selection of embryos during in vitro fertilization an embryo’s DNA can be sequenced from a single extracted cell. There’s hope. Assuming they both started from identical amount of super intelligence, it’s difficult to imagine a fair fight. While causing it to hit certain ceilings in its intellectual capabilities in certain areas, intelligence is a hard thing to quantify it’s possible that the machine intelligence might lack certain characteristics that humans possess.
The unsavoury connotations of eugenics are not exclusively tied to Nazis and similar old atrocities.
They also stem from a very real fear that as we get better at manipulating genes and quantifying intelligence and similar key indicators of human success, we will inevitably scupper the fundamental meritocratic principle of capitalist society. I reckon the term eugenics is fairly broad. Loads of information can be found online. The only issue I’m making an attempt to address is the one you brought up in your comment. Since people think of US actions in the early 1900s and what the Nazis did, Which was eugenics is a very obviously loaded term. These two threads smarter people and smarter machines will inevitably intersect.
Tinkering with a machine seems easier than modifying a living species, one generation at a time.
Naively, one would expect the rate of advance of machine intelligence to outstrip that of biological intelligence. Just as machines could be much smarter in 2050, we can expect that the humans who design, build, and program them will also be smarter. Advances in genomics both in our ability to relate complex traits to the underlying genetic codes, and the ability to make direct edits to genomes will allow rapid advances in ‘biologicallybased’ cognition. Fact, once machines reach human levels of intelligence, our ability to tinker starts to be limited by ethical considerations. As far as to the apparent rarity of our intelligence type in the archeological record an other view must be the reason that we only have evidence of one artifact species making intelligent organisms in the roughly 4 billion years history of life on earth.
AI research talks a lot about an intelligence explosion.
This explosion would occur after super intelligent beings are created, as they might be able to improve upon their own intelligence with a superior ‘skillset’.
For humans, now this could be literal generations of the geniuses described in the article. On and on. I’m sure that the next generation with its superior skillset. For instance, the effect should very likely be exponential. That said, what technology wants. Biography of a Invention, Robert Friedel, Paul Israel, and Bernard Finn list 23 incandescent inventors bulbs prior to Edison. Oftentimes in their book Edison’s Electric Light. However, it NY. You should take this seriously. Perhaps you prefer Edison, The electric incandescent light bulb was invented, reinvented, coinvented, or ‘first invented’ dozens of times.
So answer to the question Will AI or genetic modification have the greater impact in the year 2050?
AI can be thought of as a search problem over an effectively infinite, ‘high dimensional’ landscape of possible programs.
What evolution accomplished required tremendous resources. Nature solved this search problem by brute force, effectively performing a huge computation involving trillions of evolving agents of varying information processing capability in a complex environment. It took billions of years to go from the first tiny DNA replicators to Homo Sapiens. What do you think of humans just like Brett Goldstein, who consciously program themselves like machines? As a result, stephen Hsu is Vice President for Research and Professor of Theoretical Physics at Michigan State University. It is easy to forget that the computer revolution was led by a handful of geniuses.
For the first time, sentient beings of many different types will interact collaboratively to create ever greater advances, both through standard forms of communication and through new technologies allowing brain interfaces.
While allowing the animals to collaborate via an electronic connection to solve problems, Researchers have recently linked mouse and monkey brains together. These uploaded minds could combine with artificial algorithms and structures to produce an unknowable but humanlike consciousness. Seriously. With further hybridization to follow in the purely virtual realm, We may even see human minds uploaded into cyberspace. With myriad kinds of intelligences types at play, The feedback loop between algorithms and genomes will result in a rich and complex world. Familiar humans interacting with ever improving computer minds, we will experience a future with a diversity of both human and machine intelligences, rather than the standard ‘science fiction’ scenario of relatively unchanged. Consider the early ’20thcentury’ development of quantum mechanics. Some have estimated that ‘1030’ percent of modern gross domestic product is depending on quantum mechanics. Besides, it may seem incredible, or even disturbing, to predict that ordinary humans will lose touch with the most consequential developments on planet Earth, developments that determine the ultimate fate of our civilization and species. You see, the first physicists studying quantum mechanics in Berlin men like Albert Einstein and Max Planck worried that human minds a decent understanding of quantum physics. Why they should be ‘useful’ to the system is beyond my subject matter knowledge.
All three of these afflictions are reproductive barriers or nature’s way of keeping IQ levels at a point.
It can be useful to always go back to the basic question -what is the nature of evolution, as such.
The probability of such is much higher than one with unattractive features. The conclusion so, is that high IQ is something which nature seems to look for to suspend. Basically, we also observe higher IQ couples breed much less and have more fertility problems. Now the question there almost impossible to gather data from by default that they are nearly impossible to pin down. Baron Cohen of Cambridge looked at Eindhoven children near the Philips operations and showed a strong link between engineering children and their probability of aspergers. My anecdotal experience is that That’s a fact, it’s much higher than demographic chance. Correct -attractive features don’t mean reproductive success. Consequently, wolfsten’s earlier points go to the heart of the matter. Phd student. Although. My hunch is that retarded or low IQ people or indeed chimps exist today after millions of years of evolution for diversity reasons in the ecological system.
Homosexuality is much harder to show.
Almost certainly the probability of their children having them is much higher and on and on, some high IQ shouldn’t have these problems.
Many upper class are in the closet. IT communities is so prominent now that I would’ve been very surprised if this wasn’t a stylised fact. Nonetheless, there’re people that clearly think very rigidly and logically but lack social skills, are obsessive and have certain personality traits which taken together psychologists have deemed to be indicators of autisitic tendencies. Then, it appears verbal intelligence is linked to neurotic minds and national.deseretnews.co. It just keeps happening until it can’t happen any more. The most accurate way of phrasing it must be done via CRISPR.
The problem is that lots of us know that there is no support for this outcome in the literature.
