Google’s AI prophet fast tracks singularity prediction

Posted by in categories: life extension, Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI, singularity

Other prominent technologists have praised Dr Kurzweil for the accuracy of his predictions, with Google founder Larry Page personally hiring him to the company in 2012, and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates describing him as “the best person I know at predicting the future of artificial intelligence”

The 76-year-old computer scientist, who has been working on artificial intelligence for more than six decades, cited the exponential progress of computing power in recent decades in order to reinforce his predictions, compiling dozens of charts for his new book.

When asked on the Joe Rogan Experience about what kind of revolutionary changes that AI could bring to society within the next few years, Dr Kurzweil said he believed it would soon be able to reverse human ageing.

AI singularity may come in 2027 with artificial ‘super intelligence’ sooner than we think, says top scientist

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, singularity

We could build an AI that demonstrates generalized, human-level intelligence within three to eight years — which may open the door to a “super intelligence” in a very short space of time.

AGI in 3 to 8 years

Posted by in categories: cyborgs, economics, employment, internet, robotics/AI, singularity

When will AI match and surpass human capability? In short, when will we have AGI, or artificial general intelligence… the kind of intelligence that should teach itself and grow itself to vastly larger intellect than an individual human?

According to Ben Goertzel, CEO of SingularityNet, that time is very close: only 3 to 8 years away. In this TechFirst, I chat with Ben as we approach the Beneficial AGI conference in Panama City, Panama.

The Paradox Of Time That Scares Scientists

Posted by in categories: cosmology, singularity

When time reaches its limits, scientists call those moments “singularities.” These can mark the start or end of time itself. The most famous singularity is the big bang, which happened around 13.7 billion years ago, kicking off the universe and time as we know it. If the universe ever stops expanding and starts collapsing, it could lead to a reverse of the big bang called the big crunch, where time would stop. As our distant descendants approach the end of time, they will face increasing challenges in a hostile universe, and their efforts will only accelerate the inevitable. We are not passive victims of time’s demise; we contribute to it. Through our existence, we convert energy into waste heat, contributing to the universe’s degeneration. Time must cease for us to continue living.

Inflation and Bounce from Classical and Loop Quantum Cosmology Imperfect Fluids

Posted by in categories: cosmology, evolution, information science, quantum physics, singularity

The purpose of this work is to investigate how several inflationary and bouncing scenarios can be realized by imperfect fluids. We shall use two different theoretical frameworks, namely classical cosmology and Loop Quantum Cosmology (LQC) (see where the derivation of the Hamiltonian in LQC was firstly derived to yield the modified Friedman equation, and also see for a recent derivation of the effective Hamiltonian in LQC, which was derived by demanding repulsive gravity, as in Loop Quantum Gravity). In both cases we shall investigate which imperfect fluid can realize various inflationary and bouncing cosmology scenarios. The inflationary cosmology and bouncing cosmology are two alternative scenarios for our Universe evolution. In the case of inflation, the Universe starts from an initial singularity and accelerates at early times, while in the case of the bouncing cosmology, the Universe initially contracts until it reaches a minimum radius, and then it expands again. With regards to inflation, we shall be interested in four different inflationary scenarios, namely the intermediate inflation, the Starobinsky inflation, and two constant-roll inflation scenarios. With regards to bouncing cosmologies, we shall be interested in realizing several well studied bouncing cosmologies, and particularly the matter bounce scenario, the superbounce scenario and the singular bounce.

As we already mentioned we shall use two theoretical frameworks, that of classical cosmology and that of LQC. After presenting the reconstruction methods for realizing the various cosmologies with imperfect fluids, we proceed to the realization of the cosmologies by using the reconstruction methods. In the case of classical cosmology, we will calculate the power spectrum of primordial curvature perturbations, the scalar-to-tensor ratio and the running of the spectral index for all the aforementioned cosmologies, and we compare the results to the recent Planck data. The main outcome of our work is that, although the cosmological scenarios we study in this paper are viable in other modified gravity frameworks, these are not necessarily viable in all the alternative modified gravity descriptions. As we will demonstrate, in some cases the resulting imperfect fluid cosmologies are not compatible at all with the observational data, and in some other cases, there is partial compatibility.

We need to note that the perturbation aspects in LQC are not transparent enough and assume that there are no non-trivial quantum gravitational modifications arising due to presence of inhomogeneities. As it was shown in, a consistent Hamiltonian framework does not allow this assumption to be true. The perturbations issues that may arise in the context of the present work, are possibly more related to some early works in LQC, so any calculation of the primordial power spectrum should be addressed as we commented above.

Ray Kurzweil Q&A — The Singularity, Human-Machine Integration & AI | EP #83

Posted by in categories: Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI, singularity

In this episode, recorded during last year’s Abundance360 summit, Ray Kurzweil answers questions from the audience about AI, the future, and how this change will affect all aspects of our society.

Ray Kurzweil, an American inventor and futurist, is a pioneer in artificial intelligence, having contributed significantly to OCR, text-to-speech, and speech recognition technologies. Author of numerous books on AI and the future of technology, he’s received the National Medal of Technology and Innovation, among other honors. At Google, Kurzweil focuses on machine learning and language processing, driving advancements in technology and human potential.

Beneficial AGI Summit & Unconference — Feb. 27/March 1, 2024

Posted by in categories: governance, robotics/AI, singularity

The “Beneficial AGI Summit & Unconference” is a new event organized by SingularityNet and TrueAGI in collaboration with others. The Millennium Project is one of the sponsors of the event and our Jerome Glenn, Executive Director and co-founder of The Millennium Project, and José Cordeiro, MP Board member and RIBER and Venezuela Nodes Chair, are members of the organizing committee of the event. The Beneficial AGI summit will take place both online and physically and c/o Hilton Panama in Panama City. The streaming is free, get your ticket.

The objective of the conference is to bring together the leading voices in AI in actions to catalyze the emergence of beneficial AGI. Key themes of the event are: Constitution & Governance Framework, Global Brain Collective, Simulation / Gaming Environments, Scenarios analysis process, Potential scenarios (from 1 to 7).

On the first two days of the BGI Summit, Feb. 27–28, top thought leaders from around the globe will engage in comprehensive, detailed discussions of a wide range of questions regarding various approaches to AGI and their ethical, economic, psychological, political, environmental and other implications. The focus will be on discussing issues, making conceptual progress, forming collaborations, and engaging in the practical actions aimed at catalyzing the emergence of beneficial AGI based on the ideas and connections set in motion by all involved.
