they use several ways to develop AI, and one of them is to model the human brain and how it learns, so its main purpose is start us down the path of an AI future, but i imagine it has a lot to do with to see if we can.
and this article is groundbreaking, the significance is beyond imagining, sci fi, here we come
@tine, To do tasks likee what? Do our jobs for us, I hope they don’t make them look like humans because that would be creepy. hah. Would we put them together, for them to do our jobs we don’t want to do like work at mcdonalds lol. What if they get too smart? and like develop outside information by watching our behavior. Kinda creepy. Lol
The article left so much out.
What was the IQ test? Did the people who made spaun make the IQ test? Were they intending to pass a specific IQ test already shown to them (so they could functionalize the computer to that test)?
Now they can play chess and have decent IQ’s.
Whats next, they’ll be cooking? …Oh
They’ll be flying airplanes? … Oh.
They’ll be doing back flips? Oh…
They’ll be running? Oh…..
They’ll be able to recognize your emotions? Oh…
They’ll be able to have a conversation with you? Oh…
Now, if they all just combined efforts…
That’s pretty cool but it needs much more proccesors to simulate humans brain. Even if we get enough of them there is still a problem with reconstruction of the brain. I’ve read a lot about it and I think we’re gonna be able to create Ideally the same brain as human one in 400 years.
this is frightening and very exciting all at the same time! the idea that we may have in fact caught technology up to our intelligence point is scary. the idea that it “evolved” a lot quicker than the human species is mind blowing, i guess we knew that this had to happen because of the rate of how it progresses!
so what happens when it passes us! do we keep technology on a leash metaphorically speaking or do we continue to upgrade it to the point it has doubled our abilities!
As Tine mentioned earlier, this is actually pretty huge. It’s a big deal. And just as someone else mentioned….it’s kinda scary.
I think the biggest thing about this is….where do we go from here? I mean, we’ve created an artificial brain capable of thinking. What’s next? Skynet? A full blown machine-run matrix world? Think about it….at what point will A.I. be so advanced that we can’t tell a computer simulation from the real world?
did you check out that youtube vid? that’s where i see the technology going, alongside androids, we will improve our brains and bodies by fusing machine to it.
consider the implications of a computer defining brain waves and what this means for us in 20-30 years with the advancement of AI and machines in general
ever watch Ghost in the Shell?
Terrible, terrible thing in my opinion. Yes, we are becoming more experimental but does that mean we are becoming more knowledgeable? I feel as though we already have a vast and unlimited amount of beautiful knowledge that we just need to follow ancient paths to tap into it. Artificial anything is just plain wrong in my opinion. Simplicity is the key.
Although I do understand how a certain amount of fear exists when considering such a crazy subject, we shouldn’t allow an attachment of fear to something we know is inevitable.
Ive done some reading over time between the philosophy of AI and also the biological/cognitive theories of consciousness. My conclusion is that these machines will always be defined by a set of rules, even when they are able to recreate and seen to interact with us as if they dont have emotions and can read what we are in need of. The machines will never hold a state of mind or support consciousness even though they can match or go beyond our intelligence. John Searle’s chinese room theory is a great starting point i think.
How much does that matter though? What kind of power would strong AI take over us…. only the amount that we allowed it too. Maybe we also have to consider at that point where might WE be evolved to. We are the ones that are naturally equipped to carry consciousness, our minds and that allows us to exercise our free will. To me that is the Parna or life force that connects us to the universe whther you accept it as a spiritual concept or not I think a lot people resonate with that.
