Ai And What We Should Be Thinking About


Recommended Posts

Find out what Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI), Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI) are and why, within most of our lifetimes, we will have cause, to have wanted to think about them now.

 

Some seriously good reading,

From wikiwoo - "However, as larger programs were built, the flaws of the approach became more apparent. It turns out that, given a set of constraints defining a particular problem, deriving an efficient algorithm to solve it is a very difficult problem in itself. This crucial step cannot yet be automated and still requires the insight of a human programmer."

 

I didn't know much about this, thanks for the tip.

And - Now Google, in collaboration with Nasa, says it has a quantum computer - the D-Wave 2X - that works. - Google refers to its work being carried out at Nasa's Ames Research Center as "quantum artificial intelligence".

 

This means it looks like they've got the hardware, to enable the Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI) to occur.

I don't think so. It handles optimization problems, think travelling salesman. It is not a general purpose computer.

 

But it's a quantum computer, not it, but other quantum computers, which we've not had previously, will be just the ticket!
