Intelligence Explosion

AI wouldn’t see ‘human-level intelligence’ as some important milestone — it’s only a relevant marker from our point of view — and wouldn’t have any reason to ‘stop’ at our level.

And given the advantages over us that even human intelligence-equivalent AGI would have, it’s pretty obvious that it would only hit human intelligence for a brief instant before racing onwards to the realm of superior-to-human intelligence.

Where are we currently?

As of now, humans have conquered the lowest caliber of AI — ANI — in many ways, and it’s everywhere:

  • Cars are full of ani systems, from the computer that figures out when the Anti-Lock brakes kick in, to the computer that tunes the parameters of the fuel injection systems.
  • Google is one large ani brain with incredibly sophisticated methods for ranking pages and figuring out what to show you in particular.
  • Spam filters “start off loaded with intelligence about how to figure out what’s spam and what’s not.
  • Passenger planes are flown almost entirely by ANI, without the help of humans.

Timeline for Artificial Super Intelligence

In 2013, Vincent C. Müller and Nick Bostrom conducted a survey that asked hundreds of AI expert the following:

  • Median optimistic year (10% likelihood) → 2022
    Median realistic year (50% likelihood) → 2040
    Median pessimistic year (90% likelihood) → 2075

So the median participant thinks it’s more likely than not that we’ll have AGI 25 years from now.

Introduction

  • Assuming that human scientific activity continues without major disruptions, artificial intelligence may become either the most positive transformation of our history or, as many fear, our most dangerous invention of all. 
  • AI research is on a steady path to develop a computer that has cognitive abilities equal to the human brain, most likely within three decades.
  • From what most AI scientists predict, this invention may enable very rapid improvements (called fast take-off), toward something much more powerful — Artificial Super Intelligence — an entity smarter than all of humanity combined.

The Road to Artificial General Intelligence

Most experts agree that there are three categories, or calibers, of AI development:

  • ANI: Artificial Narrow Intelligence. 1st intelligence caliber. AI that specializes in one area. 
  • AGI: Artificial General Intelligence: AI that reaches and then passes the intelligence level of a human, meaning it has the ability to “reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend complex ideas, learn quickly, and learn from experience.”
  • ASI: Artificial Super Intelligence: AI that achieves a level of intelligence smarter than all of humanity combined.

Nanotechnology

If we conquer nanotechnology, the next step will be the ability to manipulate individual atoms, which are only one order of magnitude smaller.

Nanotechnology is an idea that comes up in almost everything you read about the future of AI. It’s the technology that works at the nano scale — from 1 to 100 nanometers. A nanometer is a millionth of a millimeter.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
