The Future of Intelligence, Artificial and Natural

Ray Kurzweil is one of the world’s leading inventors, thinkers, and futurists, with a thirty-year track record of accurate predictions. Called “the restless genius” by The Wall Street Journal and “the ultimate thinking machine” by Forbes magazine, he was selected as one of the top entrepreneurs by Inc. magazine, which described him as the “rightful heir to Thomas Edison.” PBS selected him as one of the “sixteen revolutionaries who made America.”

Ray was the principal inventor of the first CCD flat-bed scanner, the first omni-font optical character recognition, the first print-to-speech reading machine for the blind, the first text-to-speech synthesizer, the first music synthesizer capable of recreating the grand piano and other orchestral instruments, and the first commercially marketed large-vocabulary speech recognition.

Among Ray’s many honors, he received a Grammy Award for outstanding achievements in music technology; he is the recipient of the National Medal of Technology, was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame, holds twenty-one honorary Doctorates, and honors from three U.S. presidents.

Ray has written five national best-selling books, including New York Times best sellers The Singularity Is Near (2005) and How To Create A Mind (2012). He is Co-Founder and Chancellor of Singularity University and a Director of Engineering at Google heading up a team developing machine intelligence and natural language understanding.

Pull up your strap it's driving me crazy

Eric Fortune says:

29:30 “Now this graph, it looks like my other graph. It goes up over time. But the doubling time is not one year. The doubling time here is 3.5 months. This is where we take a neural net model and see how much computational ability is required to do that. And we basically have been doubling the amount of computation in the neural net every 3.5 months. So the speed has increased 300,000 fold since 2012.”

well…I was heavily involved in the internet since 2002 and although it was initially sustainable, I now live in a van. Poverty may have declined, but new types of people are thrown under the bus. If it was 1980, Id be married with 2 kids, a wife and own my own house, but me today…well…I better not be the only one or Im really gonna feel stupid.

DemoMan says:

After the singularity is complete, mankind will still strive to recreate sensations that feel good. Therein lies the problem. All we really want is to feel good. We will never convince anything organic that it obtains rewards from working . Once we realize that expanded knowledge is the reward, we will see many persons opting out. Just like the old days. Knowledge ain't enough.

Fei-Hong Wong says:

I wouldn't have thought that someone so smart would assume that mental illness is the only reason for suicide. Sometimes life can be too difficult to bare and that isn't a mental illness. And it yes Ray, the suicide rate is way up.

Dr. Be says:

i wear a balding gristly-grey salt n pepper tupee to make me look old and wise and virile, Ray uses his for other purposes..

Mr. Spock says:

Yes there has been progress but I would like to see a chart on the ecological damage that has been done to the earth in order to give us this human progress.

Marco A. says:

He looks a bit like Frankensteins master.

Ludwig Semper says:

One hour and not one prediction other that we will have devices that connect our brain to a computer? Hmm

JG says:

Did AI design his wig?

Oak says:

Invent technologies that bring people together in a social capacity and you've won life. That is for you braniacs, you don't need further investigation in isolation to see it causes issues for many people. If it wasn't obvious, you've all just had a difficult dose of understanding with covid. Design the AI to facilitate social interaction, in person preferably, and people will love them. All those things people want to do in groups but are missing X, go design something that does X.

Sonny Simmons says:

a few corrolations. the more sick the population the higher the gdp. the longer all the free energy tech is suppressed the longer it will take the population to forgive those suppressing it

Virtual Pilgrim says:

Everything you think you know coming from the mainstream media is a lie. For example, evolution is a lie. Humans are not evolving but devolving. Since creation, humans used to live several hundreds of years and could move giant blocks of stone nearly impossible today. Furthermore, the larger the animal the more liable it is to death because it needs more resources to feed on. Therefore, microbes are the most robust life likely to survive in harsh conditions. Evolution would favor small things and avoid larger ones such as elephants.

Virtual Pilgrim says:

The funniest thing A.I. can say is, "What is the time you wanted it to be when you asked the question?" Because of our limited knowledge as humans we can't make sense of the question, but because A.I. has access to all known knowledge, it understands the humor of it.
