Futuristic AI


Ben Goertzel, CEO and founder of SingularityNET and Chairman of the Artificial General Intelligence Society, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim. 

In this conversation, we talk about Futuristic applications of interoperable AI. Sophia- the robot. Singularity. Transhumanism. How to define intelligence . Decentralized, Distributed, interoperable AI. The importance of trust to progress with technology. Future of human-computer interaction. 

My takeaway is that futuristic AI will continue to fascinate, whether we ever get there–or not. It is a Janus faced future the proponents of Artificial General Intelligence are exploring. Will it solve more problems than it creates? In reality, it’s not a question of when we get there –un less we suddenly find ourselves needing that level of intelligence for an existential survival issue for our race, but how we get there. At some point, we likely will. But whether it will take 50 or 150 years, I’m less sure about.
