Winning at GO and the excitement around AI is not general intelligence but it can still have profound societal impact

Recently much press has been devoted to the fact that the worlds leading GO game champion was defeated by a computer.   These single discipline achievements are not uncommon.   As far back as the 80s MIT developed a computer program called Mathematica that solved differential equations better than ANY human being.   Since then… Continue reading Winning at GO and the excitement around AI is not general intelligence but it can still have profound societal impact

Does extraterrestrial life exist and will humans meet them some day? Part III how rare is life?

  Part III How Rare is life? Now that we’ve considered the goals that are possible and how many possible places we might look let’s look at the critical unknowns and estimate the probability of finding something. Let’s start with the variable Ne the first of the really unknown and highly variable quantities: Ne = Fraction… Continue reading Does extraterrestrial life exist and will humans meet them some day? Part III how rare is life?

Artificial Intelligence, The Brain as Quantum Computer – Talk about Disruptive

Originally posted on CloudRamblings:
The AI side of the equation I started my career studying Artificial Intelligence at MIT.  Back then the researchers thought that we would have computers that were smarter than humans in short order.  What I discovered after observing what the AI people had done was hardly anything close to “intelligence.”  …

Is Deep Learning AI going to result in human intelligence or better anytime soon – the setup?

Originally posted on CloudRamblings:
Does a significant advance like the recent advances in AI presage a massive new potentially dangerous robotic world? Elon Musk Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and others. have stated that recent advances in AI, specifically around CNN (Convoluted Neural Nets) also called Deep Learning has the potential to finally represent real AI. This…

Further discoveries in biological usage of quantum computing

Just a little more research discovered the following as well: Nanotubular structures similar to post-synaptic neurons (persistent and dynamic) have been discovered in immune T-cells in humans as well as in plant cells,  They are being called plant synapses and tcell or immune synapses by researchers. How does the body recognize the thousands, hundreds of… Continue reading Further discoveries in biological usage of quantum computing

How to start the problem of AI

A minimal AI system: It must be of a certain size to percieve a domain of a certain size:  a 40 bit system can’t understand a billion bits.  There must be some information limit to the size of brain capacity to understand something of a certain complexity. There must be robust set of inputs that… Continue reading How to start the problem of AI

The problem of Artificial Intelligence is much harder than people realize

http://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/this-is-your-brain-on-silicon/http://www.artbrain.org/perception-selection-and-the-brain/ This article below is in response to the above articles. Recently there has been a lot of excitement about AI.   I believe this is the same mistake that was made in early AI research.   The early pioneers in the field mistook simple programming algorithms that made a computer look smart for real… Continue reading The problem of Artificial Intelligence is much harder than people realize
