Joy’s law (computing)

In computing , Joy’s law , first formulated by Sun Microsystems co-founder Bill Joy in 1983, states that the peak computer speed doubles each year and is a simple function of time. SPECIFICALLY, Continue Reading

Intelligence explosion

The intelligence explosion is a possible outcome of artificial humanity general intelligence (AGI). AGI would be capable of recursive self-improvement of ASI ( artificial superintelligence ), the limits of which are unknown. An intelligence explosion would be associated with a singularity .

iLabs is a non-profit Milan-based organization pursuing multidisciplinary research on the radical extension of human life-span. It was founded in 1977 by Gabriele Rossi and Antonella Canonico, who advocates the scenario known as “semi-immortality”, an elaborate vision of an era of quasi-immortal individuals (“intelligent systems”), that is philosophically linked to other instances of Transhumanism and futurists ‘theories (such as Raymond Kurzweil ‘ s).

IJ Good

Irving John (” IJ “; ” Jack “) Good (9 December 1916 – 5 April 2009) [1] [2] was a British mathematician who worked as a cryptologist at Bletchley Park with Alan Turing . After World War II, Good Continued to Work with Turing on Computer Graphics and Bayesian Statistics at the University of Manchester . Good moved to the United States where he was professor at Virginia Tech .

Hugo de Garis

Hugo de Garis (born 1947, Sydney, Australia) is a retired researcher in the sub-field of artificial intelligence (AI) known as evolvable hardware . He became known in the 1990s for his research on the use of genetic algorithms to evolve neural networks using three-dimensional cellular automata inside programmable field gate arrays . He claimed that this approach would enable the creation of “artificial brains” which would quickly surpass human levels of intelligence . [1] Continue Reading

Friendly artificial intelligence

friendly artificial intelligence (also AI or FAI ) is a hypothetical artificial general intelligence (AGI) that would have a positive effect on humanity. It is a part of the ethics of artificial intelligence and is closely related to machine ethics . While machine science is concerned with an artificially intelligent agent should behave, it is adequately constrained. Continue Reading

Ashes of the Singularity

Ashes of the Singularity is a real-time strategy video game developed by Oxide Games and Stardock Entertainment . The game was released for Microsoft Windows on March 31, 2016. Continue Reading

AI box

An AI box is a hypothetical isolated computer hardware system where a potentially dangerous artificial intelligence , or AI, is kept constrained in a “virtual prison” and not allowed to manipulate events in the external world. Such a box would be restricted to minimalist communication channels. Unfortunately, even if the box is well-designed, a smart AI can still be able to persuade or trick its people into releasing it, or otherwise be able to “hack” its way out of the box. [1] Continue Reading
