The Technological Singularity

  1. 1. TheTechnological Singularity<br />By<br />Albert Cao <br />
  2. 2. Accelerating Change<br />Technological growth progress is exponential<br />Touchscreens, 3DTV, motion control, you ‘aint seen nothing yet<br />We may have to integrate ourselves with machines just to keep up with the rapid technological development<br />
  3. 3. What is the Singularity?<br />Mankind builds a supercomputer or artificial intelligence, or AI, that is superintelligent<br />The term singularity describes that such an event can happen anytime, anywhere<br />
  4. 4. Intellectual Event Horizon<br />Because this machine’s mental capabilites would be far greater than those of our own, it would be very hard to near-impossible to predict the future after the singularity<br />
  5. 5. Intelligence Explosion<br />Once we build a machine that even slightly surpasses human intellect, it could improve on and enhance its own designs<br />The improved machine could make even more improved machines, resulting in a cascade of intelligence ; in other words, our intelligence explosion<br />
  6. 6. How do we build this superintelligence?<br />We develop a device in which the power of human brains can be amplified<br />We construct an artificial intelligence (AI) with a higher ability of thinking than our own.<br />
  7. 7. Consequences<br />The machine becomes evil and kills us all; populates the Earth with robots<br />The machine is friendly and we flourish as a human society alongside robots<br />
  8. 8. How do we stop and prevent the AI from becoming deadly?<br />Keeping the superintelligence in a simulated box, separate from reality and internet access,<br />Programming the intelligence with the intentions of not harming us,<br />Programming the intelligence to maximize human pleasure and satisfaction,<br />Teaching the superintelligence moral values with machine learning,<br />Adding friendliness to the AI design.<br />
  9. 9. Friendly AI is the key!<br />Institutes that are developing a friendly AI include:<br />the Singularity Institute (in San Francisco, California)<br />the Future of Humanity Institute (in Oxford, U.K.)<br />
