We explore various philosophies and its principles to assess their appropriateness as guides in these accelerating exponential times

Stoicism.
Stoicism is a philosophical school that originated in ancient Greece and was founded by Zeno of Citium in the early 3rd century BC. Stoicism emphasizes rationality, virtue, and self-control as the key to leading a good life.

The philosophy teaches that individuals should focus on what they can control, accept what they cannot control, and remain indifferent to external circumstances beyond their control.

The future of intelligence: artificial, natural, and combined

Posted by in categories: climatology, government, health, policy, Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI, singularity, sustainability

Twenty-four years ago, Ray Kurzweil predicted computers would reach human-level intelligence by 2029. This was met with great concern and criticism. In the past six months technology experts have come around to agree with him. According to Kurzweil, over the next two decades, AI is going to change what it means to be human. We are going to invent new means of expression that will soar past human language, art, and science of today. All of the concepts that we rely on to give meaning to our lives, including death itself, will be transformed.\

Vernor Vinge’s Early Science Fiction, 1965–1983; A Quest for Superhuman Intelligence & Singularities

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, singularity
