James Barrat on the Singularity, AI and Our Final Invention For 20 years James Barrat has created documentary films for National Geographic, the BBC, Discovery Channel, History Channel and public television. In 2000, during the course of his career as a film-maker, James interviewed Ray Kurzweil and Arthur C. Clarke. The latter interview not only transformed entirely Barrat’s views on artificial intelligence, but also made him write a book on the technological singularity called Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era. I read an advance copy of Our Final Invention and it is by far the most thoroughly researched and comprehensive anti-The Singularity is Near book that I have read so far. And so I couldn’t help it but invite James on Singularity 1 on 1 so that we can discuss the reasons for his abrupt change of mind and consequent fear or the singularity. During our 70 minute conversation with Barrat we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: his work as a documentary film-maker who takes interesting and complicated subjects and makes them simple to understand; why writing was his first love and how he got interested in the technological singularity; how his initial optimism about AI turned into pessimism; the thesis of Our Final Invention; why he sees artificial intelligence more like ballistic missiles rather than video games; why true intelligence is inherently unpredictable “black box”; how we can study AI before we can actually create it; hard vs slow take-off [More]
Some people think A.I. is taking over and nothing can stop it. They claim that soon Artificial Intelligence will take over the planet and dispose of human life in the process. They believe robot rebellion is on the horizon and we have to act now for humanity to survive. #artificialintelligence #AI #freemovie Connect with 1091 Pictures Website: http://www.1091pictures.com Watch more movies on demand: youtube.com/c/1091ONDEMAND Follow Us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/1091pictures Follow Us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/1091media Please subscribe!

The possibilities of a world inundated, or potentially governed by AI looms large. As we all know at this point, it is no longer a matter of how, rather a question of when. A query into how advanced the AI’s could become is actually a far more complex enigma when probing for these answers, oddly it may not actually be up to our species volition on how intelligent the AI become. A Seed AI, a term coined by Eliezer Yudkowsky an AI researcher, is a term to describe artificial intelligence that becomes generalized over many domains rather than one simple domain like self-driving cars, it has the ability to improve itself, by recursively rewriting its own source code without human intervention. Initially, this program would likely have a minimal intelligence, but over the course of many iterations, it would evolve to human-equivalent or even trans-human reasoning, or what theorist call artificial superintelligence the limits of which are unknown. This all may sound like science fiction, but recently the Boston based startup Gamalon utilized probabilistic programming to create an AI that can write and rewrite its own code, ultimately allowing the AI to increase its own intelligence. Although this self-escalation of intelligence is narrowed down to [More]

Artificial General Intelligence – AGI might be the last invention of mankind. For better or for worse. Artificial intelligence is very beneficial to society in today’s age. AI will probably continue to be beneficial in the coming decades. However, as intelligent machines continue to improve, with the development of a true AGI or artificial general intelligence, there might be a serious threat to humanity. This issue is known as the AI control problem or the AI alignment problem. The risks involved in the process of improving intelligent systems might be intrinsic to intelligent machines that are goal-oriented. Today’s AI are known as narrow AI. They are able to beat humans in specifics tasks like chess but the same AI can not beat humans across multiple domains. At least not yet. A true artificial general intelligence might be able to solve some of the deepest secrets of nature. It might run simulations and come up with new mathematical equations and models to solve seemingly unsolvable problems in science. Such an intelligent machine might be able to cure any disease and create a wealth of sorts we’ve only seen in science fiction. It is difficult for many people to take the AI control problem seriously. Not just for the general public but also for researchers and some computer scientists who are themselves involved in the creation of tomorrow’s AI. The skeptics for this thesis do not bring forth any compelling argument why we shouldn’t be concerned about AI. To say AGI is [More]
