The long term goal for Elon Musk and brain to computer interfaces (brain chips) is to merge our minds with artificial intelligence. While the short term goal for Neuralink and other companies is to help people with medical issues. This short documentary video takes a look at connecting our brains to computers, and how this works is explained. We also take a look at the downsides of people connecting their brains, the technology being used today, and Elon Musk’s thoughts. Other topics in the video include: • How in the future we could download and upload our memories and dreams so they are not forgotten • The different types of brain to computer implants and devices • Updates (demonstrating and testing on pigs, and soon humans) and a summery of where we are today with this technology • Tutorial on how it works • And what other sci-fi like things will brains connected to computers allow us humans to do

And when you can control attention you can get access to your own source code. And then you can change the way it works.” “The system needs to pay attention to the features that are currently in its focus. And it also needs to pay attention to whether it pays attention itself. In part because the attentional system gets trained with the same mechanism so it’s reflexive but also in part because your attention lapses if you don’t pay attention to the attention itself. So is this thing that I’m currently seeing just a dream that my brain has spun off into some kind of daydream or am I still paying attention to my percept? So you have to periodically go back and see whether you are still paying attention. And if you have this loop and you make it tight enough between the system becoming aware of the contents of its attention and the fact that it’s paying attention itself and makes attention the object of its attention I think this is the loop over which we wake up.” – Joscha Bach Joscha Bach: The Ghost in the Machine: An Artificial Intelligence Perspective on the Soul (2018) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3K5UxWRRuY https://media.ccc.de/v/35c3-10030-the_ghost_in_the_machine Joscha Bach: Reconciling Consciousness with Physicalism (2019) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rxXoiQyQVc Joscha Bach: Machine Dreams (2016) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5nJ5l6dl2s Joscha Bach [More]

Share on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/1zRJyp7 Is it possible for us to significantly boost our intelligence within a lifetime? Studies show that changes in our lifestyle like exercise and nutrition can help increase brain power – but these improvements are modest at best. Perhaps the future of intelligence will come in the form of a brain implant? We’ve already seen some amazing research to get computers and brains to communicate more easily – and the future implications are limitless! If you could boost any part of your mental faculties, what would it be and why?

Automated decision making tools are currently used in high stakes scenarios. From natural language processing tools used to automatically determine one’s suitability for a job, to health diagnostic systems trained to determine a patient’s outcome, machine learning models are used to make decisions that can have serious consequences on people’s lives. In spite of the consequential nature of these use cases, vendors of such models are not required to perform specific tests showing the suitability of their models for a given task. Nor are they required to provide documentation describing the characteristics of their models, or disclose the results of algorithmic audits to ensure that certain groups are not unfairly treated. I will show some examples to examine the dire consequences of basing decisions entirely on machine learning based systems, and discuss recent work on auditing and exposing the gender and skin tone bias found in commercial gender classification systems. I will end with the concept of an AI datasheet to standardize information for datasets and pre-trained models, in order to push the field as a whole towards transparency and accountability.

GEORDIE ROSE (CEO OF D-WAVE QUANTUM COMPUTERS) SAID, “Nobody is paying attention. This A.I. construct is happening in the background while the bickering continues on politics and healthcare. As a metaphor, think if an alien race sent a message to earth that it would be here in 10 years. The entire world would pool resources to figure out how to stop it. Well, A.I. is just like that, it’s coming quickly. These “Alien Beings” that we’re creating are not gonna be like us. They’ll be like those ‘Aliens’ and way more intelligent. H.P. Lovecraft espoused this view of ‘cosmicism’ (cosmic indifference). Essentially, as a metaphor for A.I., there are more advanced ‘entities’ out there that are neither good nor evil, but they don’t give a sh!t about you in the slightest. The same way you don’t care about an ant, is how they don’t care about you.” He continues, “On that pleasant note, we’re hiring people to try to make something like this happen. I’m sort of a bit “tongue in cheek” about all this because it’s really agnostic. Technology can be used for good or for evil. If you want to a say in how this all goes down, you can’t sit on the sidelines, you have to get involved. Because the code that you write may be in use in these ‘A.I. entities’ in the next 10 years.” —- THAT NEW AGE MANTRA “WE ARE ALL ONE” IS DIGITALLY COMING TRUE Elon Musk said, “We are unequivocally headed [More]

Cognitive scientist Joscha Back explains where we are on the path to artificial general intelligence, and where we need to be. The human mind can invent its own code and create models of arbitrary things—including itself—but we don’t know how to build a mind quite like that just yet. To achieve A.G.I., will programmers have to re-create every single functional mechanism of the human brain?

They are very different. And one of the biggest questions for me is: What’s the difference between where we are now and where we need to be if we want to build minds—If we want to build systems that are generally intelligent and self-motivated and maybe self-aware? And, of course, the answer to this is ‘we don’t know’ because if we knew we’d have already done it. But there are basically several perspectives on this. One is our minds as general learning systems that are able to model arbitrary things, including themselves, and if there are this, they probably need a very distinct set of motivations, needs; things that they want to do. I think that humans get their specifics [More]
Edward Boyden is a Hertz Foundation Fellow and recipient of the prestigious Hertz Foundation Grant for graduate study in the applications of the physical, biological and engineering sciences. A professor of Biological Engineering and Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT, Edward Boyden explains how humanity is only at its infancy in merging with machines. His work is leading him towards the development of a “brain co-processor”, a device that interacts intimately with the brain to upload and download information to and from it, augmenting human capabilities in memory storage, decision making, and cognition. The first step, however, is understanding the brain on a much deeper level. With the support of the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation, Ed Boyden pursued a PhD in neurosciences from Stanford University. The Hertz Foundation mission is to provide unique financial and fellowship support to the nation’s most remarkable PhD students in the hard sciences. Hertz Fellowships are among the most prestigious in the world, and the foundation has invested over $200 million in Hertz Fellows since 1963 (present value) and supported over 1,100 brilliant and creative young scientists, who have gone on to become Nobel laureates, high-ranking military personnel, astronauts, inventors, Silicon Valley leaders, and tenured university professors.
