Since humans only use 10% of our brains they plan on brain linking this technology to the other 90% of our brains non -consensualy making mankind walking talking robots , a huge organic hybrid computer where the people are the hardware.if we engineers dont recognize the horrors that are coming from the CORPORATIONS DRIVING this technology it will be to late to defend humanity.
When operational the average person will only have knowledge of 10 things they did that day ,but in fact were directed to 27 activities that would be kept from the memory of that person.A nation of zombie workers that never complain or ask for raises.
Could a big data-crunching machine be your boss one day?
Amelia can swallow textbooks whole, speak 20 languages, understand concepts and learn from her mistakes. And she can be replicated any number of times.
On my screen I see her absorb a complex engineering manual in 14 seconds then immediately answer questions such as "What are the symptoms of a bent drive shaft?" and "What causes high power demand?"
This may be a far cry from Scarlett Johansson's uber-intelligent operating system Samantha in Spike Jonze's sci-fi film, Her, but it's the future, says Chetan Dube, IPSoft's chief executive.
"Machine intelligence is starting to rival human intelligence," he asserts.
This machine learning intelligence is starting to work its way into the boardroom.
For example in May, a Hong Kong-based venture capital company appointed an algorithm to its board of directors.
I have been saying A.I. will need 2 things. It will need a hive mind that mimics the collective consciousness of humans and it will need a quantum mind in order to take a quantum walk like I believe humans do.
How does this cloud mind mimic the collective consciousness of humans, and not, say, the internet?
Now you also say robots need a quantum mind in order to take quantum walks like humans do… So what is a “quantum mind” and how is it a prerequisite to any form of intelligence?
Lastly, how is humans programming intelligence into a machine a sign that that machine is intelligent?
Easy, the internet can't create new ideas based on information that's shared like humans do.
When you talk about a cloud mind for robots, this would mean one robot could process some information in New York and another robot in Atlanta could access this information and build new ideas based on this information. This collective conscious will allow robots to learn from one another.
You ask why is the quantum mind a prerequisite for intelligence. It's a better explanation for consciousness than the non answer from materialist who have faith that consciousness must have emerged somehow. It's an explanation that actually explains something vs. the faith of materialist that explains nothings and tells us these things must emerge.
It's called Artificial Intelligence. This question is like how can we call artificial cherry flavor cherry. It's exactly what it is. It's things like intelligent algorithms mimicking intelligence.
If you create an algorithm that allows a machine to process information, build new ideas from this information, share those ideas with other machines and remember those ideas, why isn't this artificial intelligence?
So if machine intelligence shares the same taste as human intelligence but evolves in it's own way, who are you to say it's not intelligence because humans programmed the initial algorithm?
Maybe that's why a positive mental attitude, visualisation, 'the secret', following ones dreams, etc quite often works as imagined in the classical world...actions already proven successful in the quantum world stand a better chance of working in the classical world?
The programming may start the same, but just like with a living thing, its personal experiences will soon make it draw on its own memories, its individual database, to make decisions.
Because simulating intelligence is not the same as having intelligence. A machine does not learn if it is simply acting like it is programmed to. It would be just a model of intelligence.
In other words, robots need to learn how to use the internet?
This makes no sense. If someone has created an intelligent algorithm that simulates intelligence, why isn't it the same as having intelligence? If it's simulating intelligence, what is it doing?

But computers are doing much more. At what point are they considered smart?
The point at which they're told to memorize a list of 5,000 words, and they ask, "What the hell am I doing this for, again?"

I hear what you are saying though. But that's free will. Are you saying that only things with free will are intelligent?
we could very well be done for as a species. I don't know if I'm lucky or unlucky that I won't live long enough to see it.
