AI, VR, & Mars Colonization

AI, VR, & Mars Colonization

When younger generations imagine what it must have been like to live through the first space race, and the initial excitement over the concept of a moon landing, they might compare it to the present day. Seemingly over the past year, our inevitable journeys to Mars have become a hot topic. It’s not a brand new topic, but thanks to various efforts to prepare for the idea of one-way journeys, a human landing on Mars suddenly seems imminent. We’re even starting to see this reflected in pop culture and entertainment. The wildly popular film The Martian is just a few

Introduction to the Intelligence Value Argument (IVA) Ethical Model for Artificial General Intelligence

The Intelligence Value Argument (IVA) states that, “ethically”, a fully Sapient and Sentient Intelligence is of equal value regardless of the underlying substrate which it operates on, meaning a single fully Sapient and Sentient software system has the same moral agency [10] as an equally Sapient and Sentient human being or any other intelligence.  IVA theory defines ‘ethical’ “as pertaining to or dealing with morals or the principals of morality; pertaining to right and wrong in conduct”. Moral agency is “an individual’s ability to make moral judgments based on some notion of right and wrong and to be held accountable

AI Abstract Series E11 – Omega: An Architecture for AI Unification

Welcome to the Technocracy A.I. Abstract Series for Published Scientific Work in the A.I. and Artificial General Intelligence field. Today’s paper is titled: Omega: An Architecture for AI Unification. Authored By Eray Özkural. Abstract: We introduce the open-ended, modular, self-improving Omega AI unification architecture which is a refinement of Solomonoff’s Alpha architecture, as considered from first principles. The architecture embodies several crucial principles of general intelligence including diversity of representations, diversity of data types, integrated memory, modularity, and higher-order cognition. We retain the basic design of a fundamental algorithmic substrate called an “AI kernel” for problem solving and basic cognitive

Technological unemployment rolls on with the arrival of autonomous long-haul trucks.

A recurring theme we witness as our technological progress continues is the inevitable loss of jobs formerly performed by human beings. It has been a frequent part of our lives since we first invented the wheel. This one will have ripple effects, though, that eliminate many positions beyond merely taking down truck drivers. Consider their support communities. A huge infrastructure has evolved to answer the wants and needs of those who perform these jobs. Consider what happens when the truck stops fail and close. These are places that provide employment and, therefore, a paycheck, to many underserved communities. Residents of rural

AI Abstract Series E10: Zeta Distribution and Transfer Learning Problem.

Welcome to the Technocracy A.I. Abstract Series for Published Scientific Work in the A.I. and Artificial General Intelligence field. Today’s paper is titled: Ultimate Intelligence Part I: Physical Completeness and Objectivity of Induction. Authored By Eray Özkural. Abstract: We propose that Solomonoff induction is complete in the physical sense via several strong physical arguments. We also argue that Solomonoff induction is fully applicable to quantum mechanics. We show how to choose an objective reference machine for universal induction by defining a physical message complexity and physical message probability, and argue that this choice dissolves some well-known objections to universal induction.

AI Abstract Series E8: Detecting Qualia in Natural and Artificial Agents

Welcome to the Technocracy A.I. Abstract Series for Published Scientific Work in the A.I. and Artificial General Intelligence field. Today’s paper is titled: Detecting Qualia in Natural and Artificial Agents Authored By Roman V. Yampolskiy https://soundcloud.com/technocracypodcast/ai-abstract-series-e7-detecting-qualia-in-natural-and-artificial-agents Computer Engineering and Computer Science Speed School of Engineering University of Louisville Abstract The Hard Problem of consciousness has been dismissed as an illusion. By showing that computers are capable of experiencing, we show that they are at least rudimentarily conscious with potential to eventually reach superconsciousness. The main contribution of the paper is a test for confirming certain subjective experiences in a tested

Comment on Demonstrate Your Knowledge by Venus

100 OUROBOROS The idea that history rhymes. There is similarity of events due to human nature and recurrent behavior over time. 101 Blackstar (The Singularity) Which is entirely opaque as we cannot see beyond the time when computers eclipse our ability to understand or predict anything from that point. Blackstar and Singularity also refer to the intense gravitational centers throughout the universe commonly referred to as black holes. 102 Midgard & the Nine Worlds A reference to Norse mythology. Midgard is the realm of Earth or that plane which we inhabit. As the name implies it occupies a central place
