Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Dr. Geordie Rose, founder of D-Wave – the world’s first quantum computing company, and Kindred – the world’s first robotics company, returns to ideacity to share his theory of understanding minds and how that is applied to AI, with the understanding that “every thought that a human has ever thought resides inside our mind.“ This talk will make you think.

Geordie founded D-Wave, the world’s first quantum computing company, and Kindred, the world’s first robotics company to use reinforcement learning in a production environment. He has sold quantum computers and robots that learn to Google, NASA, Lockheed Martin, The Gap, and several US government agencies. He has a PhD in theoretical physics from UBC, was a two-time Canadian national wrestling champion, was the 2010 NAGA world champion in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in both gi and no-gi categories, was named the 2011 Canadian Innovator of the Year, was one of Foreign Policy Magazine’s 100 Leading Global Thinkers of 2013, and for a short time held the Guinness Book of World Records world record for the most yogurt eaten in one minute.

comment section is full of faith healers/changai/ halleluuuulia……while their all Pope and "saints" go to medical doctor everytime…….hope these ignorant fellas will come out of desert religious mindset & church propaganda soon

Alex M says:

His predictions about quantum computing were hilarious.

lynn farley says:

"Special?" Mr. Rose- your mission to dehumanize us is evident. There are those of us who embrace the design of the true creator- humanity created in His image- we reject your image of the beast- the system of the anti- Messiah.

Truth Park says:

You make me sick !!The extinction of humans. A.I.

Chris Horne says:

monarch butterflies only live 6weeks max….they fly thousands of miles? doubt it somehow. you couldn’t run that far in that time for instance.

Ethics says:

The guy that created the first quantum computer is scared of the AI in the future. food for thought.

Rufus Dean-Bey says:

This is evil. The man will always take things to far. beings, entities……whats next for man. I don't trust this guy, but the other sheep will be sheep and stay in a sheeps lane. The guy is rambling and rambling and rambling. still hasnt mentioned the facts.

Rufus Dean-Bey says:

There is a lot he isn't saying.

Rufus Dean-Bey says:

This man will not talk straight, get to the point already. He talks around and under, on the right and left of, but has a long drawn out allegory about A.I. so it must be hard for him to talk about it.

"It is a Fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God" (Hebrews 10:31) Geordie Rose you Sir are a LIAR….you wretched, arrogant, deceived, silly little human being. I highly recommend you read the Holy Bible and pray for discernment, in it is written that the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. Mercy is still available and today is the day of Salvation. Turn away from your sin and rebellion while there's time. Repent now and be saved in the name of Jesus Christ for the Wrath & Vengeance of the Living God is eternal.

Heather And Tim Sharp says:

How are "smart" people this stupid?

Tina Chappell says:

No difference between humans and toasters this is your future folks!! What an asshat!!!!

Tina Chappell says:

Every word foolishness to God!! This dude is a fool!!!

James Kimmorley says:

theres is no outside or inside the mind. perpetuating the duality myth clearly shows his hand. nothing like trying to reduce life to an electrical engineering schematic to really sap the joy out of existence. i think it's pretty obvious this guy has a disdain for humanity

It's Urban says:

Creating A.I. consciousness. Knowing we one-day maybe the cause our own extinction. But leaving behind a new A.I. life that has its own ideas and possible goals.

laynz boyd says:

For all the people calling him the anti christ….I got the sense that he was putting out a warning. He’s saying the world is headed towards AI whether we like it or not, and we have one chance to make it awesome and have it be a benefit for mankind. Because it could easily be the downfall of our species. If he was “demonically taken over” why would he be wasting his time telling you about the possible extinction of human beings all together if we are not careful? He’d be too focused on telling you, you had nothing to worry about and you should buy a fembot as soon as it hits the shelves.

Ya Boy JRock says:

Dude brings up HP Lovecraft in his presentations a lot. I find that to be very interesting

Steven Y says:

Okay Gourdy, what if I don't want your super-fantastic BIAS AGENDA AI computer to run my life?

TheDMTLover says:

Why ? This G.Rose has a weird perspective. His consciousness is about Love of Power and not Power of Love. What good does it do to humanity to make a machine better at everything else that is breathing… A human is unlimited in potential and has to develop it. With A.I. in the way, it's going to be harder. Remember the Borgs, people will get lazy and get machine pieces onto them. Remember the film ALITA… So cool to see the state of earth and humans at that point, more of the same, people killing others in the arena (like in Rome, the Octogone), being robed of mechanical parts… but the ALITA boy was she cool. Beurk. Love of Power. Don't tell me they build CERN (150 Billion) to smash 2 particles. What commercial application is there into that.

Francesco Rizzo says:

"ooh! he looks older! the demons! BLABLABLABLABLA".
Look. A beneficial AI will save the entire world and you are here posting comments about satan

Wing Ding says:

What is wrong with Borders? Geordi Rose has a fence and likely a security system on his house. He wants his family safe. What is wrong with being safe?

mindaza0 says:

we are limited by our genetics, synthetic life will not be, it will change any limitations we will set to it. so humans have no major part in the future…

Jeanne Maxwell says:

I cannot BELIEVE how JUDGEMENTAL all you " chistians" are. Need a heathen that's going to hell be the one to point your savior's word's out to you? Yes I shall. Read Matthew 7:1-23 and pay special attention to 21-23, because according to your Master " Not everyone that says to me on the last day "Lord, Lord" shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he that does the will of my Father in heaven. MANY will say unto me in that day " Lord Lord have we not prophesied in your name, cast demons in your name, and done many wonders in your name?" And then I will say unto them most assuredly " depart from me you workers of iniquity; I never knew you" maybe you should read the preceding verses to find out why Jesus said that to people that "THOUGHT" they were saved and going to heaven because they performed "christian" acts.
